I Fought Piranhas Tab

   
-----------------------------------
| I Fought Piranhas		    |

| Tabbed by Donkey Fly              |

Open E Tuning
E B E G# B E

OR

Open D Tuning
D A D F# A D capo 2nd fret
Like in Suzy Lee, Jack plays rhythm guitar behind Johnny Walker, who plays slide. Jack
is playing in Standard tuning. During breaks I combined both guitars into one part for
simplicity, so pay attention to the tuning changes.

 B|--10/12----12----------------|
G#|--10/12----------------------|

VERSE 1: (SLIDE RIFF, with 0-3b--0 from Jack's guitar)
Well, I hold the rope
And I hold the sail
And I kept my papers
To keep from land' in jail

I was all alone, yeah
