First Thing Wrong (Difford/Tilbrook)
INTRO: Root 6 barre power chords, A A G A; riff notes: A,C,D,C,A,G,E

(low E and A strings); then back to power chords A A G A; then release

a 2-string bend originating from (XXX66X) position but that has

already been bent to reach the tones at the seventh position, and add

two passing notes C (XXX5XX) and A (XX7XXX) to finish the lick. Then

back to power chords, A A G A A; riff again; power chords A A G A;

then ad lib based on A chord until verse 1.



 A   (bluesy feel using root 6 and root 5 power chords)

There's evil and goodness, and goodness and bad



  D

Remember the first kiss, first kiss you had



A                        E

Choked on her tongue and bit on her lip



F#                      D

She gave her number but that was it



        G                         D

Did the first thing wrong, did the first thing wrong



    A                                                     C G D

Oh, eyes to the ceiling and pants on the floor, I did the F.T.W.



[break in A]



A

Drove to the city to see the bright lights



    D

The boys on the corner looked ready to fight



A                         E

I stuck my neck out and I looked at his face



F#                         D

I left her standing, I was caught in a chase.



        G                         D

Did the first thing wrong, did the first thing wrong



    A                                                     C G D

Oh, eyes to the ceiling and pants on the floor, I did the F.T.W.



[solo..chords in solo: A D A E F# D G D A C G D   A]



A

But it's four in the morning, and I knock on the door



    D

She says, "How you doin'?" and I say "I'm not sure."



A                  E

I kick the bottles all downstairs,



F#                          D

Guys are freaking out -- so what?  I don't care!



        G                         D

Did the first thing wrong, did the first thing wrong



    A                                                     C G D

Oh, eyes to the ceiling and pants on the floor, I did the F.T.W.



[repeat the line "I did the first thing wrong" 3X and ad lib based on

A chord to finish.]
