Not enough tabs for this great band. This is my first attempt at tab, you guys sure have
lot of patience! Please excuse any errors, comments welcome.  This is a cross between
studio and live versions really.


Intro is a sustained E5 power chord on 7th fret, with open bottom e string and feedback. 
Then....


   E          A           A  B   D    B          F#           F# E

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------x-x-x---|

play this main riff twice. Then...

..in a rock'n'roll style.. ( E )                                     A!

                           three times then...
     ( E )
e|---12--12-----------12--12\-------12--12----------12--12\--------------------|

G|-----------14-12-13--------------------- 14-13-------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0--------------------0---------0--------------------0-----------------------|

Do that whole part one more time then...

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------0--------------------------2--------------------------------------|
D|--------2--------------0-----------4----------------------------------------|
A|-3----3--------------2------5----5-----------0------------------------------|

View Just Lyrics...

Here we come in a cloud stars in our eyes
Standing up proud it's the perfect disguise
We've got so much to give, so much to gain
Just give me your money, and I'll give you my pain
It's a fair exchange (fair exchange)

Now Tia Maria, she leans on the wall
Looks in the mirror and pukes on the floor
Tries to remember the cause of it all
He just gave her a drink so she gave him a ball
It's a fair exchange

But I expect you expect a lot from me
I can feel your burning need
Your greedy greedy
Fantasies are guaranteed
To make my young heart bleed
For you, and your pubescent blues, yes
You and your dancin shoes
You... and your sad glad news
About your boyfriend Stan
He's a dirty flirty man
And he'll get you if he can

Here I stand in a daze axe in my hand
Another fool on the stage with a traveling band
There's a space in my heart... permanent flame
Just give me your body and I'll give you my brain
It's a fair exchange

Now Venus De Milo a statue of note
She lays in the gutter, with a knife in her throat
Naked as sin no, not even a coat
She gave you a thrill so you gave her a grope
It's a fair exchange

Still, I expect you expect a lot from me
I know you all
The show goes on despite the wrong
The strong still rise
And the weak still fall

this song is up to you
All along, you never knew
This song
Is comin on through
To take you for a ride
It's tested true and tried
Even though it almost lied
