Repost nr. 203...


"Nutshell" from the Alice in Chains album Jar of Flies
Tab transcription by Mark van 't Zet (tmvtzet@cs.vu.nl)


Remarks: A point above a note means: staccato (short). Really
excellent song, like the rest of the album. 


INTRO RIFF - Acoustic guitar. Played through entire song.

VERSE 1

We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home


CHORUS - Electrical guitar, play twice

Oooh (4x)

VERSE 2

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead
