Interpreted by D. Ramm (dramm9@excite.com)

I've seen other tab interpretations of this song and I'm a bit perturbed at what
seems to be some very tone deaf people out there. Not to say I am anywhere near
perfect in my interpretation but this seems to work just fine playing in a jam
session. 


Creep by Stone Temple Pilots (Chords plus some tabs)

Opening
    C   B7(Open E)  Em |  C  	B7	Em
   					
	E:--x--			E:--2--
	B:--x--			B:--x--	
	G:--2--			G:--2--	
	D:--1--			D:--1--	
	A:--2--			A:--2--	
	E:--x--			E:--x--		

*   Alternate the B7(Open E) and the B7 in the verse
**  When playing Em in the bridge, you can alternate the chord by holding Bstring 
(3rd Fret) and HIgh E string (3rd fret)back and forth
*** I am well aware the last line of the bridge has a variance on the C to D. I
found this the easiest way to play it however.

Verse
 Em           C   B7               Em    
Forward yesterday makes me want to stay
What they said was real, makes me want to steal
Living under house, yes I'm living I'm a mouse
All I got is time, got no meaning just a rhyme

Bridge
G   	         Am            Em    
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G   	         Am            C  		       D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal***

Chorus (See Chorus Guitar Riff)
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be

Verse
Em          C       B7                 Em  
Feeling Uninspired, think I'll start a fire
Everybody run, Bobby's got a gun
Think you're kind'a neat, then she tells me I'm a creep
Friends don't mean a thing, guess I'll leave it up to me

Bridge
G   	         Am            Em    
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G   	         Am            C  		       D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

Chorus 
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be

Break 
  ///  ///  ///       ///
Em   Em   Em   Em(Hold)  (There is some small fingering/pluckin parts amongst the
Em's,figure em out yourself)
         Yeeaahh

Bridge
G   	         Am            Em    
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G   	         Am            C  		       D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

End Chorus
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be
(fading) Half the man I used to be


Chorus Guitar Riff
(A)                                 (B)                            \**** 
I'm half the man I used to be       yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey 
  E|--------------------------------|------------------------------|
  B|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
  G|------0-------0-------0---------|------0-------0-------0-------|
  D|----2-------2-------0---------2-|----2-------2-------0---------|
  A|--2-------0-------2-----0-1-2---|--2-------0-------2-----0-1-2-|
  E|0-------2-------3---------------|0-------2-------3-------------|

Repeat 3x (After last part play Em)      

**** Vocal Note: The chorus is actually two vocal tracks overlaid on the album.

For the purpose of clarity I will call them (a) & (b)

Chorus (b) continues while Chorus (a) and the Guitar Riff breaks in immediately
after singing 'fades' in  Chorus (b)

If sung solo, you must truncate (cut-off) the last part of Chorus (b)..(ie 'to grey')

This is perfect accept the chord timeing w/ the lyrics but like strum patterns thats something people can figure out on their own.
