                             Credit in the Straight World by Hole
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From 1994's 'Live Through This'. This is actually a punk rock version of a Young Marble
Giants song, but it's an excellent cover. There are two guitars in the song and there is
a lot of overlapping of chord progressions, but I tried to explain at clearly as 
possible. I believe Eric Erlandson is playing Guitar 1's parts, while Courtney Love is on Guitar
2. I based some of it off of seeing live footage of the song being performed. Play with 
heavy distortion.

"x" = string mute
"b" = string bend


Tuning: Standard


(Introduction verse with organ):

And I will awake
Your highness, I'm so high I cannot walk
And I will awake
You cripple, you take away my time
My peace, my empathy
No babies sleep on atrophy
Your unborn love and fetal stress
Hard bitter candy, legless caress
