 this song but I tabbed it both ways so you can chose what you wanna do)

[VERSE]
D           G
 You heard about 
Bbm         G
 A criminal man of virtue
D             G
 Is there any doubt, 
Bbm          G
 His minimal strands would suit you?

[BRIDGE]
Dm                G
 Is a hard earned way
Bbm               G
 Is a hard earned way

[CHORUS]
F           Bbm
 Iíll never lose
F*        Bbm 
 My Fu manchu, my fu manchu

-INTRO- 2 times

[VERSE 2] 
D              G
 Let them grow out
Bbm             G
 In time youíll feel so better
D              G
 The vanishing pout
Bbm          G
 Now youre a real go-getter

[BRIDGE]
Dm                G
 Is a hard earned way
Bbm               G
 Is a hard earned way

[CHORUS]
F           Bbm
 Iíll never lose
F*        Bbm 
 My Fu manchu, my fu manchu

-INTRO- 4 times (the C part is played 3 times at the end)

[BRIDGE] - same chords
Is a hard earned way
Is a hard earned way
Occidentally tic-tac
Occidentally tic-tac

NOTE: If you prefer to DROP D, donít play the low E string when you
play all the other chords. Cuz, as you will find out, it wont sound
right. But... if you play the E string on the D chord, it will sound 
nice. E-mail me if you need too.
