Rose out of my seat

Front doors was locked
And the place was packed
When the police knock

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.
