Intro:
A5  B5  (x4)

The opening chords sneak up on you and there's
wah pedal noises, etc. in the background.
Right after the last B5 chord:

D|--------7---9-------------|  with delay pedal
A|---7/9--------------------|


Then comes the riff:
      A    B             
E|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|--------------8------------9h7---|  It's like this during the verses,
D|----7----9---(9)--9--------9-----|  with slight ad-lib variations. 
A|----7----9--------9--9--9--------|  
E|----5----7-----------7--7--------|
 
It helps a great deal if you have delay/echo effects, 
since that's basically the key to sounding like them.

* Verse 1 *
(with riff)

  Been shot...

  I got one more life,


(solo 1)  - Played sort of distorted and bluesy
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/verve/rolling_people_tab_ver_2.html ]
E|----------------------------------|------------------------------------|
B|----------------7-----------------|-------------------7----------------|
G|-----------7h9--9b(11)===--9h7----|--------------7h9--9b(11)===--9h7---|
D|-------7h9----------------------7-|--------7h8h9---------------------7-|
A|---7h9----------------------------|--7h8h9-----------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|------------------------------------|

Play something like this in the B blues scale with 
delay on the upward run...


* Verse 2 *  
(I can hardly understand Ashcroft in this verse)

  With a drugstore life,
  I was dealin' soda then of the white... (?!)
 ..


*Chorus*

But here we are, the Rolling People..


* Verse 3 *

On a big jet plane


*Chorus*

B
  And here we are,..


 
(solo 2)   - Played very clean

E|---7h5-----------------------------|--7h5------------------------|
B|-------7h5-------------------------|------7h5--------------------|
G|-------------7---------------------|----------7h4----------------|
D|-----------------9---7h4-----------|--------------7h4------------|
A|--------------------------7--5-----|---------------------7-------|
E|--------------------------------7--|------------------------7----|

E|---7h5-----------------------------|--7h5------------------------|
B|-------7h5-------------------------|------7h5--------------------|
G|-------------7-------------7-------|----------7h4----------------|
D|-----------------9-----7h9---------|--------------7h4------------|
A|--------------------7h9------------|---------------------7-------|
E|-----------------------------------|------------------------7----|

  Play and repeat the 2nd line a few times..


*And the rest of the lyrics*:

Only the bass is playing the riff while the guitar
plays echoey notes in the B scale.
E|-----------------------------------|
B|---10-10-10---9b(10)---7(b)--------|
G|--------------------------9h7------|

Tell me do you know .... 

Back to the riff, and the song gets out of control.

The "eep" part at the end of the song:

   EEP, EEP             eep, eep
E|--11-------11-------|--7--------7--------|
B|--14b(16)--14b(16)--|--10b(12)--10(12)---|
G|--------------------|--------------------|


Best of luck.. This song kicks so much ass I had to figure it out,
and I figured I might as well tab it so anyone else can to play it.
I'm sure there's some mistakes as always due to
laziness or typos, but if you can hear a wrong note than you
can probably figure out what it's supposed to be!
