Soundgarden- Burden in my hand

Before we get started- The recorded version is in open C tuning.  I play in standard 
so for this song I simply use a capo on the third fret (key of c).  I will not sound 
the same but it still sounds good.   These are the chords for the rhythm guitar only.

Capo 3rd- all chords are relative to the capo

Verse 1: When playing the verses, play the root note(top note) of the chords twice 
strumming-use open chords

A           C
Follow me into the desert
     G             A
As thirsty as you are
A                  C
Crack a smile and cut your mouth
     G              A
And drown in alcohol
       A              C
cause down below the truth is lying
 G                A
Beneath the riverbed

A                        C
So quench yourself and drink the water

       G              A
That flows below her head

Prechorus- just strum
C    A
Oh no
C          A
There she goes
C           A  C        A       C        
     C      (Ax3)
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine the sun is mine             (tricky rhythm, listen 
the song)

Chorus
A          G           F        C              DCA
I shot my love today would you cry for me
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you lie for me
A              G                F    C              DCA
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you cry for me

Verse 2- same as verse 1, chords A,C,G, A
Close your eyes and bow your head
I need a little sympathy
cause fear is strong and loves for everyone
Who isnt me
So kill your health and kill yourself
And kill everything you love
And if you live you can fall to pieces
And suffer with my ghost

Chorus 2
A          G           F        C              DCA
I shot my love today would you cry for me
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you lie for me
A              G                F    C              DCA
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you cry for me

Bridge- strum each chord three times except DCA
A                    C
Just a burden in my hand
A                     F
Just an anchor on my heart
 A                  C            DCA
Just a tumor in my head


Verse 3- the same A,C,G,A
So follow me into the desert
As desperate as you are
the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
And all the little pigs have god

Prechorus
C    A
Oh no
C          A
There she goes
C           A  C        A       C        
     C      (Ax3)
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine the sun is mine


Chorus 3
A          G           F        C              DCA
I shot my love today would you cry for me
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you lie for me
A              G                F    C              DCA
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
A          G           F        C              DCA
I lost my head again would you cry for me
F          C           DCA            A(strum 3 times)
Would you cry for me

the part where you put tricky rythym .. and you have a combo of c's and a's, it sounds good if you play the C, but then play this:A D C combo .. gotta play it quick though
