  20 Years In The Dakota by Hole
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Scott

This alt rock ditty/ode to Yoko Ono was original recorded in 1992 and released as a
b-side to "Beautiful Son", and later appeared on their compilation album ''My Body, the Hand
Grenade''. All I can find are bass tabs for the song (Courtney Love actually played bass 
on the recording), but there is nothing as far as guitar is concerned. This song is
really bass-heavy. There is a main riff composed of five chords, but the latter part of 
the song is really just harping back and forth on G5 and C5 power chords, alternating 
between clean acoustics and distorted electric (you can map this out by listening to the song).

Tuning: Standard

   She spent 20 years in the Dakota
   Every single day was black in the Dakota

   Riot girls think you stop it
   You're forever in her debt
   Well, I know you haven't saved me
   And you haven't saved her yet

   She spent 20 years like a virus
   They want to burn the witches inside us

   Woah, yeah, you don't fuck with the Fabulous Four
   Or you'll spend the rest of your life
   Picking things up off the floor

   G5
   She's still alive, but I am sure

   C5
   That all the stars belong to her



Chorus 1 (heavily distorted)

   On California king-sized beds
   She's wrapped in rags inside my head


   G5                                                    C5
   This is the the story, this is the story of someone's wife

   G5                            C5
   Been in black pools her whole life

    (Nah, nah, nah, nah, I don't remember, I forget)

   Oh baby, dry your dirty eyes
   My water breaks like turpentine



Chorus 2 (heavily distorted, play twice)

            G5                                   C5

   G5
   The pee-girl burns to be the bride

   C5
   Your ever lovely suicide

   G5            C5
   Hey, yah, hey, yah

   G5                                      C5
   Are they coming for me? Are they coming soon?
    (Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah)

   Hey Jude, hey Jude
    (Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah)
   Are they coming for me, Judy Judy, are they coming soon?
    (I don't remember I forget)

   The pee-girl burns to be the bride
   Your ever-lovely suicide
    (I haven't live there yet,
    I don't remember, I forget)
   Hey nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
   I don't remember, I forget
