Repete Verse

Repete Intro as Chorus #2

After Chorus #2, repete the fill without all the string mutings.
Just slam the notes, basically.

The "ooh, ah, Kissed a little mischief...." part is the same partwhre Anthony
says " Dog Town, Blood Bath...."

Repete Chorus 1 more time with distortion
The outro is the same as the Chorus, just without distortion.

The last chord struck is this...
E----:
B--6-:
G--7-:
D--7-:
A--5-:
E----:
Not exactly strummed 1 note at a time, but done pretty slowly.
And that basicly it.
This wasnt taked from any book, magazine, or whatever.
