This is definitely a two guitar song, but

THE MAIN RIFF:

A

E ---------3-2---0------3-2---0-----3-2---0-----3-2---0---------
B -------------3------------3-----------3-----------3-----------
G ---2---2------------2-----------2-----------2-----------------
D --------------------------------------------------------------
A --------------------------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------

The chord playing underneath is the song's key -- A -- but the
above riff is most comfortably fretted as an open D and then
single-note picked.  It's sort of a combination of a D and an
A7sus:

D              A7sus

E ---2--------------3-------------------------------------------
B ---3--------------3-------------------------------------------
G ---2--------------2-------------------------------------------
D ---0--------------2-------------------------------------------
A --------------------------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------

Try it, and I think it will be clearer than my explanation.

THE LYRICS AND CHORDS:

VERSE 1
A
Friday night I trashed your party  Saturday I said I'm sorry

E7
Sunday came and trashed me out again

Bm                     G
I was only having fun wasn't hurting anyone

E                             A
And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change

VERSE 2
I was stranded in the combat zone, I walked through Bedford Stuy
alone
Even rode my motorcycle in the rain
And you told me not to drive, but I made it home alive
So you said that only proves that I'm insane

E             D              F#m7          A
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for

E                        A
Turn off the light       Don't try to save me

D               E                   A
You may be wrong for all I know but you may be right

VERSE 3
Oh, remember how I found you there
Alone in your electric chair
I told you dirty jokes until you smiled
You were lonely for a man, I said "Take me as I am"
'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while


VERSE 4


Now think of all the years you tried to find someone to satisfy
you
I might be as crazy as you say
If I'm crazy then it's true that it's all because of you
And you wouldn't want it any other way

** SOLO NOTES **

The first line is Chuck Berry flavored, like the opening to many
of his songs.  In the second line, the whole step bend on the
12th fret on the B string [12b(14)] is tricky; I often cheat it
and actually do a half step bend from the 13th fret [making it
13b(14)] because there's more room for your fingers, and if you
play it correctly, nobody but you will know the difference.
Also, in the third line, the G-string bend is a b**ch, but it
apparently really is what he's playing, and it's a nice slow
bend; a little practice and you should be able to do it
perfectly.


REPEAT REFRAIN

A
You may be wrong but you may be right...(REPEAT AND FADE)


Have fun, and good luck...
