Well I finally sat down with the Singles CD and bashed this out.  I can
play the riff at the beginning, but now that I don't have my guitar
in hand I forget it.  Agh.  I can't understand two places where Chrissy
is singing either--'crescending' and 'baggle' aren't words that I know
of, but that sounds like what she's saying.  Corrections appreciated.

BACK ON THE CHAIN GANG (The Pretenders)

[All the work on this song was done by nlin@alliant.backbone.uoknor.edu
 (Norman Lin); I just cleaned it up a little for my own use.]

There are about three versions of this already in the archive, but none of
them is quite right.  This one's a little better; someone sent it to me last
fall, and I recently cleaned it up because I wanted to play it.

Unfortunately, this might still have mistakes; I can't check because I don't
have the album.  I'll have to see if I can get them to play it on the radio...
