                This is one of Rage's greatest songs. I was tired of seeing cr*ppy tabs for it,
so here's the right one.  Tom Morrello is a guitar god and should be praised by all.
                          
                          rage against the machine  
                                "down rodeo"

Guitar Legend:
x= Chop
(b1/2)= Bend Half Step and return
*= Push string into pickup with right hand
pm= Palm Mute
\= Slide

The E is actually played 8 times followed by the Dsus2/A 16 times.The rhythm is
easy to figure out.  If you can't do it, put down the guitar and try tennis or something.

 "From the things you'll never have."


Pretty painless... Awesome song to play.
Here's all the lyrics in case anyone cares:

Set 1:
Yeah, I'm rollin down Rodeo with a shotgun. These people ain't seen a brown
skinned man since their grandparents bought one. (2X)
So now I'm rollin down Rodeo with a shotgun.

Set 2:
Bangin this bolo tight, on this solo flight can't fight alone.
Funk the track, my verbs fly like the Family Stone.
The Pen Devils set that stage for the war home. 
Locked without a wage, standin in the drop zone.
The clocker's born, starin' at an empty plate.
Mama's torn hands, cover her sunken face... We hungry but them belly full.
The structure is set, ya never change it with a ballot pull.
In the ruins there's a network for the toxic rock. School yard to precinct,
suburb the project block.
Bosses broke south for new flesh and a factory floor.
The remains left chained to the powder war.

Set 3:
Can't waste the day when the night brings a hearse.
So make a move and plead the fifth cuz ya can't plead the first.
Can't waste the day when the night brings a hearse.

Set 2
Set 4:
Witness to the sickest shot while suckas ger romantic.
They ain't gonna send us campin like they did my man Fred Hampton.
Still we lampin, still clocking dirt for our sweat.
A ballot's dead so a bullet's what I get.
A thousand years they had the tools we should be takin em.
f**k the G-Ride, I want the machines that are makin em.
Our target straight with a room full of armed pawn, to off the kings on the
West Side of dawn.

Set 3

Set 2

Set 5:
The rungs torn from the ladder, can't reach the tumor, one god, one market,
one truth, one consumer.
JUST A QUIET PEACEFUL DANCE!
JUST A QUIET PEACEFUL DANCE! YEAH!
JUST A QUIET PEACEFUL DANCE!
JUST A QUIET PEACEFUL DANCE!
just a quiet peaceful dance, from the things you'll never have.
