Subject: TAB: Piss Bottle Man by Mike Watt

Piss Bottle Man by Mike Watt
off the album "Ball-Hog or Tugboat"

Tabbed by Glenn Rubenstein (grubenst@wco.com)

This is pretty accurate, I saw Mike Watt in concert and
got the riffs off of Eddie Vedder's hands, then figured out
the rest at home.

Here we go.

For all intents and purposes, this is the song's
main riff and will be referred to as "riff"

-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------3-4---------
-3-2-3-5------3-2-3-5------3-2-3-5---------------

A shorter version is played in parts, which is just


low E-------3-2-3-5

This will be called "short riff"

Note: You can play this song with the root notes, or chords,
bass notes in some parts give it more of a "Watt"
feel.

Intro:

Riff


Verse 1:

D              A                 G           G (short riff)
There are some things a guy gets from his pop


D                        A                 G           G (short riff)
Some of these things get spaced, others are never forgot

F#                G          A
Believe in such a tradition, I got in my truck cab


Chorus:

D    A    G
Oooh Oooh Oooh

            G  F# (short riff)
Piss bottle man

(repeat)

Verse 2:

Same as first, lyrics are:

Miles and miles all the while I feel secure
Even when a fuse gets short I can keep my nerve
Believe in such a tradition I got in my truck cab

Chorus

Bridge:

Short Riff
Piss bottle man

Short Riff
Piss bottle man

Chorus

Verse 3:

Same, lyrics are:

Driving in his shoes, using the bottle he used
Every time I pop I think of my pop and pay my dues
Respect such a tradition, I got in my truck cab.

Chorus

Chorus

and fade.
