 of laughing gass and ennui

"Rattlesnake" by Live
On the new album, Secret Samadhi

This is a cool song from Live's latest album.  The album's really good,
but it's something that definitely grows on you as you listen to it.

Transcribed by spider@olemiss.edu

Tune a 1/2 step down, as per usual for about 99% of Live's songs.

Builds up with keyboards or something, then kicks in with this...

(using heavy distortion)

Dm	Dm	Dm	Dm

(using chorus)

Let's go hang out in a mall,
or a morgue,
	G	Dm

(using heavy distortion)

	 Dm		A	  G		Dm
It's a crazy, crazy mixed up town...
		C	G		Dm
It's the rattlesnake I fear...


Bb	C	F
	(ahhh.... ahhh...)
Bb	C	Dm
Bb	C	F	G	G

Solo to the chorus chord progression.

That's pretty much it; just listen to the song to figure out where
everything goes.  Oh, and the outro is the same as the intro.
