Okay, I'm stuck on Bush again, and can't get them (it) out of my mind. Greedy Fly is one
of my favorites but I could never find a decent tab or understand. Well, I think I've 
thrown together a version here that is more in line with what I hunt down tabs for (not 
looking for solos, I want to understand the song basics).

Intro:

(Notey Intro/Verse Riff)

 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 
e|-------------------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|
G|-------8-----8--8--------|-------11----11----11----|
D|-10-10---10--------9~(9)-|-9--------9----9-9----9--|
A|-------------------------|-------------------------|
E|-------------------------|-------------------------| (x2)

Play this a couple times then...

(Chordie Intro/Verse Riff)

 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . |
   C     Cm C  Cm C  G#      G#  
e|-------*-----------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|
G|-5--5--3-h5--3-h5--------|-------------------------| 
D|-5--5--5--5--5--5--6~----|-6-----6-----6--6--6--6--|   
A|-3--3--3--3--3--3--6~----|-6-----6-----6--6--6--6--|   
E|-------*-----------4~(4)-|-4-(4)-4-(4)-4--4--4--4--| (x2)
                                         (Do  you...)   
       
* The Cm's are really just flair on the C chord portions, so I'm not going to list them
  out all the time (too confusing). The 2nd Cm is more vital, the first can be palmed to
  hide/mask. You can also lift barre the 3rd fret and hammer all the 5's in the C, so 
  don't stress over this too much - its C then G#, not that complicated.

Verse 1:

 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . |
   C     Cm C  Cm C  G#      G#  
e|-------*-----------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|
G|-5--5--3-h5--3-h5--------|-------------------------|
D|-5--5--5--5--5--5--6~----|-6-----6-----6--6--6--6--|
A|-3--3--3--3--3--3--6~----|-6-----6-----6--6--6--6--|
E|-------*-----------4~(4)-|-4-(4)-4-(4)-4--4--4--4--|(x4)
1) feel the way you  hate?               Do   you 
2) hate the way you  feel?               It's always 
3) closer   to  the  flame.              Oh,  ever 
4) closer   to  the  blade.        (yeah)

C       (Cm  C)  G#   |G#               | (x2 - w/ notey intro)

Verse 2:
     C     (Cm C) G#   G#
I am poison crazy lush
            C       (Cm   C) G#   G#
Built these hands to lift me up
       C       (Cm C)  G#  G#
We are servants of our formulaic ways
C     (Cm C) G#   G#

Pre-Chorus:

(Pretty much like chord verse, but just more straight-forward)
 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . |
   C                 G#      G#
e|-------------------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|
G|-5--5--5--5--5--5--------|-------------------------|
D|-5--5--5--5--5--5--6--6--|-6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--|
A|-3--3--3--3--3--3--6--6--|-6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--|
E|-------------------4--4--|-4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--|(x4)
1)                   I'm     screaming   daisies.
2)                   From    forty       miles away.
3)                   I've    got   my    own time.
4)                   Got it  all   today.     (So..)

(Mr. Simple jumping in again. It does not sound bad here to just play C for a measure
and then G# for a measure. It's a Bush song, so keep things simple if needed.)

Chorus: 
(Part 1)
 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . |
   A#       F        G#      G#

A|-8--8--\--3--3--/--6--6~-|-------6--4--6--6--6--6--|
E|-6--6--\--1--1--/--4--4~-|(4--4)-4--4--4--4--4--6--|(x3)
1) Make                            up    your  
2) mind!                           Need  some 
3) help!                           To    find  this 

(Part 2)
 | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . | 1 . . 2 . . 3 . . 4 . . |
   A#       F        G#     (G#)
e|-------------------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|
G|-7--7--\--2--2--/--5--5~-|------------------(5)----|
D|-8--8--\--3--3--/--6--6~-|------------------(6)----|
A|-8--8--\--3--3--/--6--6~-|------------------(6)----|
E|-6--6--\--1--1--/--4--4~-|------------------(4)----|(x2)
1) mind!    mind!    mind!
2) (no words)

C       (Cm  C)  G#   |G#               | (x2 - w/ notey intro)

Verse 3:
        C     (Cm C) G#   G#
Limbo this and limbo that
         C       (Cm  C)   G#   G#
You were this and you were that
     C        (Cm   C)  G#   G#
Ever know that what you fear is what you find.
C        (Cm   C)  G#   G#
                ...yeah.
Pre-chorus:
C          G#    G#
           This  Indian Summer!
C          G#    G#
           I     signed my life away!
C          G#    G#
           This  greedy fly in here!
C          G#    G#
           And I fly away!     So...

Chorus 2:
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Make                  up your
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Mind!                 Need some
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Help!                 To find this
A#  \ F   / G#   (G#)
mind, mind, mind,
A#  \ F   / G#   (G#)
mind, mind, mind.    

(That's basically it, there is an interlude and soloing, and I'm going to skip ahead to
the outro...)

Outro:
(Per chorus part 2)
A#  \ F   / G#   (G#)
A#  \ F   / G#   (G#)
A#  \ F   / G#   (G#)

(the repeat chorus 2 - complete)
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Make                  up your
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Mind!                 Need some
A#  \ F   / G#    G#
Help!                 To find this
A#  \ F   / G#    G# (keep strumming this G#)
mind, mind, m-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-nd,
A#  \ F   / G#   
mind, mind, mind.    

*END*

That's it. It's a really fun song, but hard to interpret from just tabs if you don't
know it by heart. I use to, but that was over 10 years ago. Hopefully, I've done it 
enough justice to comprehend. For details, there I recommend that Kurt_Cobain_67's tab. 
That guy is a Bush tab god. (Just took me 3-4 years to understand his work.)

(or something like that, I play it differently every time)

Gotta love the internet. Submitted tab 5 years ago with no comments or ratings since. Then first person to care gives 1 star and leave no reasons. Thanks for nothing.

Btw, I reviewed the tab and realized I play the A# listed as Am# (6886xx). Don't think I realized because normally only play the power chord here anyways (688xxx). But if you do add the D string the minor sounds better.

Also, the Interlude can be played simply as:

|A#------|G#--F---|
//////// /// /~ (slide back up and repeat a bunch of times)

Here the A# is the A# and not the minor. (But what do I know, since it's a 1-star tab right now)
