• On the Tweek Again by Primus
  • Tabbed by Jim Wade
  • Contrary to popular belief, Les plays this song on his six-string fretless. The way he achieves the tremelo sound is by constantly sliding back and forth. On the staff, Iíll put where you slide to and from, below the staff, Iíll put the fret number that you should pluck the string on when you slide past. Still with me?

  • Used to come around here
    To peddle his wares
    A lot more takers now

    The turkey "J"
    You can taste the air
    Around your face

    His name was Barrest Jeffries
    They picked him up twice
    For cooking up amphetamine

    Now he's on the tweek again
    Drinking county prune
    He doesn't mind so much

    So we'd sit around the fire
    Singing "Kumbaya"
    "Kumbaya" I said
