HYENA - by Rancid    from the self-titled album
tabbed by Adam Peiken  

(This song is easiest divided into 11 separate parts)

1.  During Bass Intro, Guitar plays distortion in the key of G.  At the end of
the intro, right before
"Here we go!"  Slide a C to a D.

2.  In the part of the song following that (but before the lyrics begin) the
guitar plays:
G D#   G D#   G D#   C D    X2

I'm money broke
It's no joke
Can't cope
Use the rope this time
Knuckle up, buckle up
The ride's getting rough
G                             B-C-B-C
But I will not lose my mind
G		B-C-B-C
I asked them if I could come in
G				B-C-B-C
And the first thing they said was no
G				B-C-B-C
If I can't come in, that means I can't come back
G		              F
That means I got nowhere to go

F           C        Bb                  F
I'm a hyena fighting for the lion share
F               C          Bb            F            X2
Sometimes the lion share ain't there

G D#   G D#   G D#   C D    X2

5.  VERSE 2  (Same chords as the first)
Absent from political authority
An animal I've become
Total disorder and confusion is the lifestyle that I run
Permit me to do what I want and I will I'm a nomad to travel
Concrete glass stone and gravel


7.  VERSE 3   (A little different.  Also heavy mike distortion.  *Besides the
"D#  Bb" chords are
basically impossible to pick out.  The bass carries the melody.  However it
does sound sort of like
a G being raked.)
Every time I turn around it's the same sad story
Getting ganked I wish it would end
And life's comisary
G*					      D#    Bb
I'm a bad missionary with a wicked message I send
(????) ...is not the way I want to live.
Who could I trust in a world of green?
When I'm taught to take and not give.

Who could I trust?
When I'm taught to take and not give.

9.  SOLO  (Don't have time to tab this out, but these are the chords played
under the solo.)
F         C          Bb          F       X 4
Guitar solo played out of a blues scale in the key of F

10.  Repeat first verse (#3)

11.  CHORUS  v.2
Play through the chords (F   C   Bb    F) two times alone with the bass before
kicking in the chorus
During the second time through:
Spoken:  You see there's nothing you can say that's going to change my mind.
Fuck you!

F           C        Bb                  F
I'm a hyena fighting for the lion share
F               C          Bb            F
Sometimes the lion share ain't there
F       C            Bb   G#          F
Sometimes the lion share ain't there
