I lost my copy of "Grand Illusion" about ten years ago, so excuse any flaws
in this partial tab.  I used to twiddle with this song and still remember
how I played it.  It's pretty much based on standard power chords.  The only
tricky part is the hammer on/pull off combination (you'll know the one I
mean when you try it)--better alternatives would be of interest, but I
could never come up with anything easier that sounded right.

h = hammer on

The above is repeated over the verse.  The chorus then goes something like
this (my memory could be a little weak here):

-7-7-7-7-7-8--7-5--|--7-7-7-7-7-7-5-3--|--7-7-7-7-7-8--7-5-3-5--|

You can opt not to use full barre chords, but I prefer them for this song.
All I remember of the lyrics is "You are the queen of the United States/ A
disease for which there is no cure".  My mind is blank after that.
