NOFX – The Man I Killed

(acoustic Guitar) actually he plays this part only with power chords too. But you can 
use the regular ones.
	    G                          C	   G
When they tightly strap me in, give me lethal injection,
       b	      e	         C		  D
Just a few moments to live, no remorse for what I did,
            G			       C	   G
Was for the benefit of man, I gave the utmost sacrifice,
            b 		    C		    G
Before more damage could be done I took his life.

 G5   G5 F#5 E5	         (/^E5)		     C5
There was a split second of silence when the dart punctured the skin,
      G5	                        F#/G5
Beady eyes rolled back in head, the body dropped from the poison,
 G5  F#5   E5	 (/^E5)		      C5
They could incapacitate me, but could not erase my sneer,
          G5				        F#/G5
I heard a thousand people screaming, while three billion others cheered,
G5 F#5 E5	 C5		 D5
He was gone, and I would soon be...

[ Tab from: ]
(acoustic Guitar)(again: actually it's power chords)
   G			     C			G
Executed by the state, all appeals would be in vain,
          b		e	     C		     D
I was not criminally insane, in fact I was found to be,
	     G		  	           C	    G
An otherwise caring and respectable member of society,
        b	          C		 G
A minor threat except for that one man I killed.

G5 G5 F#5 E5	      (/^E5)	      C5
As the se-datives take effect, I just smile and close my eyes,
          G5				        F#/G5
There’s a priest kneeling next to me, he asks me if I realize,
G5 F#5 E5	     (/^E5)	      C5
I  was going straight to hell, and he thought that I should know,
         G5	                                F#/G5
That the man I killed’s replacement planned this whole scenario,
     G5 F#5 E5     C5        D5       G5<-last Chord also played w/acoustic
And what I did had no significance at all.

(acoustic and slightly distorted guitar: chords, 3rd guitar(?) riff)
  G                 C        G      b         C       G* let ring

h = hammer on
(/^E5)= you can slide from the lower E5 to the upper one here. listen for exact timing, 
just slide when you feel like it ;)
