						 [=====Play Very Quickly===============]

Verse
"The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road..."
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------5--5----------5--5-----------7--7-------7--7--7------------------------------------5--5-----------------------------
A--3---------------3-----------4---5----------5-----------------5--5------5--------2-----3-----------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------3-----------3-----3--5-------------------------------------------

NOTE: The verse stays more or less the same until the funk jam part of 
the song...Mike adds lots of extra fills and licks to 
spice up the bass part.  It moves up a step after a while:

There is a little lead-in after Trey sings "Bummed is what you are when you go 
out to your car and it's been towed..."
