I declare this my own work...

Well this is the first HOABT tab available via internet! 
I was looking for this song for quite a while without any luck, so I tabbed 
it out
myself. Now future generations don't have to waste their time or suffer. 
Enjoy!

Thats it! Well, that wasn't too hard right? Ok I know there's a thing
or two I might have missed, and the rhythm on the solo might be off a lil. 
Well thats the internet for you. Besides, I do believe this is the first 
HOABT 
tab on the entire fricken net. Questions or comments should be sent to
