Band: Sublime
Song: Santeria
Album: Self-titled
Tabbed By: Jeremy Roswell ([email protected])
Comments: All the chords should be 
    barred.  The E on the 7th fret, the Ab on the 4th, the Dbm also on the 4th 
    and the B on either the 2nd or more conveniently the 7th.  The chords in the 
    song might all be power chords, I'm not really sure.  I put the chords along 
    with the first verse and chorus so you could get the idea.  Each chord is 
    strummed and muted four times in the verses.  The chorus riff I have included 
    below is not exactly accurate as is my intro but they are pretty close.  I'll
    try and get the solo later but I'm not sure I can do it with my acoustic.
Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

E, Ab, Dbm, B

Verse 1:
             E                        Ab                
I don't practice santeria I ain't got no crystal ball

     Dbm                            B
I had a million dollars but I'd, I'd spend it all

     E                                 Ab
If I could find that Heina and that Sancho she's found

            Dbm                      B 
Well I'd pop a cap in Sancho and I'd   slap her down


A        B             E   Dbm
All I really wanna know my baby
A        B            E   Dbm      A
All I really wanna say I can't define

       B            E    Dbm
It's love that I need 

A          B
But my soul will have to

Verse 2:    
Wait 'till I get back, find a Heina of my own
Daddy's gonna love one and all
I feel the break, feel the break, feel the break
And I gotta live it up
Oh yeah, uh huh, well I swear that I


All I really wanna know my baby
All I really wanna say I can't define
That love will make it go
My soul will have to...



All I really wanna say my baby
All I really wanna say is I've got mine
And I'll make it yes I'm comin' up
Tell Sanchito that if

Verse 3:

He knows what is good for him he best go run and hide
Daddy's got a new 45
And I won't think twice to stick that barrel straight down Sancho's throat
Believe me when I say that I've got something for his punk ass


Well I really wanna know my baby
What I really wanna say is there's just one way back
And I'll make it
yeah my soul will have to wait

Chorus Riff:

     A       B       E       Dbm
