Words and Music by Jeff Keith, Frank Hannon, and Tommy Skeoch.



 T = play with thumb
 / = slide up
 \ = slide down
 ^ = bend 	^q = quarter tone	^h = half tone		^F = full tone
	if letter is above the fret #, note is bent THEN picked
  7^F^7 = pick 7, full bend up, bend back down to original note 
 h = hammer
 p = pull-off
 g = grace note - written above note to be 'graced'
 ~ = vibrato
A.H. = artificial harmonic; note in parentheses is note to be sounded

Notes:
1) When two staffs (one above the other) are connected at measure marks by a
| symbol in the space between the staffs, that indicates that the top staff is
Guitar I, the bottom is Guitar II, and that the two parts should be played
simultaneously.

2) DS al Coda means return to the point marked SEGNO, then when the 
word "Coda" appears go the appropriate coda.

Additional lyrics:

2. Al Capone and Bad Boy Jones on the wrong side of the law.
   Johnny D. and his company, always first to the draw.
   Gangster lean, feelin' so mean, tryin' to take more than their share.
   Cause all they saw was ruling it all, the scent of blood was in the air.

3. So here we are and we've come this far but it's only getting worse.
   The foreign lands with their terrorist demands only cause the good to hurt.
   The USA, the USSR, with their six-guns to their sides.
   I see the message written on the wall: Too much anger deep inside.
