No big deal... in the 5th verse, the word should
be "movie", not "looney". But the song is so fast,
it don't really matter.

I think the break is closer with D A E too,
but it still sounded good. This is a pretty
good tab overall.
-debeck | 1/3/2004
he said son have we got a deal for you
gonna make you a star give you 50,000 too
i told him my momma didnt raise no fool
ill take your money, ill make your movie,
ill tell you right now i was born to boogie

that is the words i hear but its no big deal

This tab is not correct. Listen to the recording. If anybody is paying money for this stuff they are wasting coin because the tabs are written by people that don't know how the song goes. If there is a charge at least the info should be correct.
By the way there is a disclaimer on the top saying this file can only be used for study, etc. yet the owner of the site is charging money. I wonder if the owner of the copyright is getting his share.
