I noticed that the From a Basement on the Hill version is on here, 
but the Pretty Ugly (Before) single B-side version is not. 
I like this version a little better. 
It may be because I heard this one first, but I'll never know.

Anyway, I've found that dropping the guitar down a whole step is the easiest way to play it, 
plus Elliott used this tuning a lot, so it's possible that he played it in this tuning.


Key:

*E= upper octave E chord
*F= upper octave F chord

 h= hammer on
 p= pull off
 /= slide
 ~= let ring


Intro:
Same as the other version

F                   C
  I'm floating in a black balloon
D               *E          *F
  I must make it through this afternoon
Am       G         F            C
  Shame shifting, shadow down drifting
    D          *E *F
Way out of town


Am                   B5      C             
  And all you ladies and you gentleman,
D              *E  *F
  Unhappy where you could have been,
Am      G                F      
  Drive people like you drive a car,
   C                   D           *E *F
  Till you don't know where you are


Am    G           *F
  You don't impress me
       D                                  E
  I'm sorry that you're chained to the ground
      F  G    D  F  C          G          Am   G#            
  But no big brother is gonna bring me down now


F      C     D   *E  *F

Am  G  F  C  D   *E  *F


Am             B5        C
  Rim's rolling now with all his might
  D                *E      *F
Rain drops falling through a starry night
Am    G        F         C  
  Sunrise on a choppy crusade
       D          *E  *F
Waving back at you . . . not me


Am    G           *F
  You don't impress me
      D                      E
  You can't be satisfied anyhow
      F   G    D  F  C          G        Am        G#    
  And now big brother is gonna bring me back down


   C    D    G#   C    G    Am    G#

 {Repeat this last progression to fade)


Few last notes:
In this version, it's mostly power chords,
but I put in the full chords so you could do this version in the style
of the From a Basement on the Hill version if you wanted to.


Also, I haven't found a tab with the distorted guitar part at the end
the way I think it sounds, and I'm not totally satisfied with the way 
I play it either, but this is the way I've been playing it:
