"Lost in Germany" by King's X 

    From the Album: King's X
        Written by: D. Pinnick, T. Tabor, J. Gaskill, and S. Taylor 
            Tab by: John Myers

    Note: 
      1) The E string is tuned down to D
      2) This song has many portions that are "muffled" (or "heavily
         damped") as well as pull-offs, hammer-ons, & slides. I have 
         not tried to included all of those things here. If I did, I 
         would  probably only get it wrong. Use your best judgement...
      3) I have tried to show timing under each tab. If you know
         the song, you probably won't need it, but I included it anyway
         for the "timing" nit-pickers (of which I am a charter member)
      4) If you use the tab, find it helpful, find something wrong, etc,
         send an email to: myers@airmail.net  Feedback is appreciated.

Bridge (or "other part", depending on your musical knowledge & prowess)

I broke the bridge into two levels of complexity. This way, the less 
dexterous guitar player can focus on the melody (bass) line before 
attempting to add the "fill" notes.


Bridge: type a) this part shows just the promenant melody line)

Main Riff (alt)

The Main Riff at the end of the song has a slight variation every other
time (the 2nd and 4th) time it is played. It is shown below (with the 
differences highlighted as *)

Lyrics:

Verse:     Moving in a bus too close for comfort 
           Listening to all the gibberish around me 
           wonder! How much longer can I stand it 
           Looking for a phone I cannot find 

PreChorus: Ohh woe is me 
           Like a politician in disguise 
           You know I had to look you in the eyes 
           and smile 
           While I crawled another mile in 

Chorus:    Germany, lost in Germany 

Verse:     Swimming in an ocean of your feelings 
           Counting every moment go one by one 
           Laughing to keep from crying out in anger 
           Praying that i can make it through this night 

PreChorus: Ohh woe is me 
           It was like a never ending week 
           But I learned to turn the other cheek 
           and smile 
           While I ran for one more mile in 

Chorus:    Germany, lost in Germany 
           Germany, lost in Germany 

Verse:     Shooting at a target that eludes me 
           Hammering on a nail that just won't go in 
           Biting on a tongue that wants to speak out 
           Searching for a light that I can shine 


PreChorus: Ohh woe is me 
           But now I have crossed that borderline 
           and I wonder if I'll ever find 
           your hand 
           `Cause I did not understand in 

Chorus:    Germany, lost in Germany
           Germany, lost in Germany



Well... that's it.

I know that I haven't included all the pull-offs, slides, hammer-ons, 
etc, but I think that the notes and timings are all fairly accurate.

Enjoy, Good Luck, & remember... Always pillage BEFORE you burn!
