    For those who are not familiar with the song, it is an awesome twist on a PETER GUNN type of progression.

    I am having a hell of a time figuring out the chords in the intro, played right before the mail riff.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    I don't know the chords, but Jim Mankey was one of the most under-rater guitarists of his era. I saw them several times, and he never used a pick. It was all fingers!

    I learned Joey, Tomorrow Wendy, and the CB version of Everybody Knows.
    He was rather fond of sus2 and sus4 chords.
    Hope that helps.

    Also, try here....
    www.tabcrawler.com
    Lots of pop ups, even w/ a blocker, but a lot of tabs (Not note for note, but very useful for chords). It may very well be there.
