/ The Police / Synchronicity (1983) / King of Pain guitar tab

Title:  King of Pain
Artist:  The Police
Songwriter:  Sting
From: Craig Quenneville (e0fvyczs@mail.erin.utoronto.ca)

This is my first attempt at submitting anything to OLGA. Hope
this makes the cut.  This is only a bunch of chords and lyrics,
sorry, no tabs.  The solo is pretty easy, but no guitar with
me right now.  Just play around with the bottom E and B strings
and you'll figure it out!
