IT'S GONNA BE A LONG NIGHT - words and music by Ween
**from the album "Quebec"

My buddy Miko sent in this tab. He said:

Well, when a song rocks this hard it must be played immediately. This may
not be 100% but it is close enough for me to think I can play this bitch.

Also, Joel Glidden notes:

I found your "It's Gonna Be a Long Night" tab very useful, although I'd
like to make two corrections; the intro, which you said was the E and Db
chords, I'm pretty sure that it's actually C7 and A7. Also, you should put
a note that the record is tuned down a half step.

***Official Lyrics***

Heard that you are new in town
someone said you party down
well, later I'll be comin' round
we'll rack 'em up and suck 'em down
don't call your mother-don't call your priest
don't call your doctor-call the police
you bring the razor blade-I'll bring the speed
Take off your coat-it's gonna be a long night
there'll be no 2nd chance for you
tomorrow you'll be black and blue
show your friends your new tattoo
911 won't help you, fool
you're gonna suffer-you're gonna bleed
I've heard it all before-you will concede
I'm takin' everything-you're goin' down
lock up the doors-it's gonna be a long night
it's gonna be a long night-it's gonna be a catfight
it's gonna be a gang-bang
