Hey everybody!  This is something I whipped up rather quickly since I couldn't

find any tabs or chords for this song.  I went off of my memory of the song, so it

might not be 100% accurate, but it sounds close enough to me.  If you find

something that can be fixed, then please let me know in the comments.  And, of

course,thanks for checking out my tab!

In the song, there are no chords during the verses.  However, if you want to play

something, then use the A chord throughout the verses.  If you're playing by

yourself, you can also play it like this:

e|----0------0------0-----|

B|----2------2------2-----|        In this, you use your thumb on the

G|----2------2------2-----|        low E string to mimic the baseline.

D|----2------2------2-----|

A|----0------0------0-----|

E|----x------2------0-----|

Will you push away?"
