Animals Chords

So, this song is absolutely awesome, and I had to think of a way to use it on my
because, how couldn’t this song turn a wild girl on. The problem was no one on had put
chord version of the song so it could be played and sung to at the same time. I mean
isnt much guitar in the song because of the heavy and sick drum licks. So here it is
acoustic version of Animals. And anyway, like my Uncle Bill constantly says, “Andrew,
ain’t no rules to rock and roll and that’s what makes it groovy man.” So love it or hate
this is my tab, play around with it yourself and find what works for you or what you 
cause music is fun man.

Into Riff                      This you add on later in the intro after
                               The last A where you hear the guitarist
                               Playing that quick lick. It sounds like DGCD

Then The Verses Sound Pretty Cool with this Stroke Pattern

[ Tab from: ]
For the chorus it remains the same so I like to change it up and cut out the powerful
chugging up strokes and instead just play a simple strum pattern anything you think you
sing to I suppose. Then for the bridge after the chorus you play the Intro riff
the little add on) and then sing “So Come on baby get int” play it again and then “Get
Just get in” play the riff again and then “Check out the trouble we’re in.”

D                       G
I'm driving black on black
Just got my license back

            A                                   D
I got this feeling in my veins this train is coming off the track
             G                         C
I'll ask polite if the devil needs a ride

           A                               D
Because the angel on my right ain't hanging out with me tonight

         G                            C
I'm driving past your house while you were sneaking out

            A                             D
I got the car door opened up so you can jump in on the run
Your mom don't know that you were missing
                C                              A
She'd be pissed if she could see the parts of you that I've been kissing Screamin'

 D                      G
No, we're never gonna quit
Ain't nothing wrong with it
Just acting like we're animals
D                      G
No, no matter where we go
'Cause everybody knows
We're just a couple of animals
(Intro Riff)
So come on baby, get in
(Intro Riff)
Get in, just get in
(Intro Riff)
Check out the trouble we're in

You're beside me on the seat
Got your hand between my knees
And you control how fast we go by just how hard you wanna squeeze
It's hard to steer when you're breathing in my ear
But I got both hands on the wheel while you got both hands on my gears
By now, no doubt that we were heading south
I guess nobody ever taught her not to speak with a full mouth
'Cause this was it, like flicking on a switch
It felt so good I almost drove into the ditch
I'm screamin'


We were parked out by the tracks
We're sitting in the back
And we just started getting busy
When she whispered "what was that?"
The wind, I think 'cause no one else knows where we are
And that was when she started screamin'
"That's my dad outside the car!"
Oh please, the keys, they're not in the ignition
Must have wound up on the floor while
we were switching our positions
I guess they knew that she was missing
As I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was kissing


So yeah, thats what I've got. Enjoy, go forth woo the ladies and get laid with this
Nickelback song.
