Note: play above REALLY fast (obviously more times than shown)

Play chorus:

E5           F#5
? troubled times ?

B5   A5  G#5  G5
You know I cannot liiie

E5           
 About the way you've been

F#5
Hitchin' a ride

Play verse chords:
B5 A5 G#5 G5

Hitchin' a ride (la la la la)

repeat, add in a little octaves like above.

then stop and arpeggio:

E:|---------5-|
B:|-----------|
G:|-----------|
D:|------7----|
A:|----6------|
e:|--7--------|

Note: there's probably more to this, but I can't find a way that's humanly
possible.

And that's it!
