Well, here's the chords and lyrics to a song by a band I really like.
If you've ever heard this song (or for that matter Used to Love Her by
GN'R) the strumming will be obvious.  If people want more Social Distortion
lyrics and chords I can post more.  I don't tab Social D because there isn't
really anything to tab.  Even I play better leads than Mike Ness (I think his
first name is Mike).  I nominate him for the atrocious, maladroit guitar
player award that's been floating around on alt.guitar.  Social Distortion
songs are great to jam to when you don't have anyone to play with because they
usually consist of the same chord progression throughout the whole song, and
you can solo throughout the whole song for practice.  Enough babble, here's
the song:

6x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears
 And look at the mess I'm in-
A broken nose and a broken heart,
 An empty bottle of gin
Well I sit and I pray
 In my broken down Chevrolet-
While I'm singin' to myself
 There's got to be another way

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well I've searched and I've searched
 To find the perfect life-
A brand new car and a brand new suit
 I even got me a little wife-
But wherever I have gone
 I was sure to find myself there-
You can run all your life
 But not go anywhere

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm sick and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

(solo)
4x D A G D

4x D A G D
Well I'll pass the bar on the way
 To my dingy hotel room-
I spent all my money
 Been drinkin' since half past noon-
I'll wake there in the mornin'
 Or maybe in the county jail-
Times are hard getting harder
 I'm born to lose and destined to fail-

3x D A G D
Take a way, take away,
 Take away this ball and chain
I'm lonely and I'm tired
 And I can't take any more pain
Take away, take away
 Never to return again
1x D A G (let G ring)
Take away, take away
 (music pauses)
 Take away this ball and chain

2x D A G D

(outro)
4x D A G D
