                             We All Die by Cat Power
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From 'Myra Lee' (1996). I'm basing the main riff here off of a video that I saw of her
playing this live, and it sounds spot-on to me, but I could always be wrong. The other
riff which is played on top of this in the beginning build-up of the song was tabbed by
ear, as was the short bridge near the end, and those I'm not so sure about but they're at
least somewhat close. The only tricky part to this song is the main riff: you'll use your
pinky and ring finger at first on the A and D strings, and then, while leaving them
there, you'll use your middle finger once on the low E string on the 4th fret, and then your
index finger for the complete G power chord (3/5/5), and then you'll have to stretch your
index finger down to the 2nd fret on the last chord there. So, all in all, not that
hard, just that last stretch. There are occasional note plucks in there that I didn't bother
tabbing. Comment if you have any suggestions/corrections. Play with a little distortion.

Tabbed by: Scott H.

"\" = slide down
"x" = mute strings

    Here you go, sayin' she's ill
    Here you go, marriage and kids
    A drug addiction

    All the lies aside,
    I believe I am the luckiest person alive

    Hell, we all die sometimes
    Hell, we all try somewhere

    Money always sees
    Money always draws the lines

    Hope you can see through the beggars and the pleaders
    Do you happen to know where I am from?
    I'm lost in this, so far from home
    Far from home
    Do you happen to know where I am from?
    I'm lost, far from mom

    All the lies aside,
    I believe I am the luckiest person alive
    Hell, we all die sometimes
    Hell, we all try somewhere
    Somewhere, somewhere
    Somewhere, somewhere



Bridge:

e|---------------------------------------|

E|--3xx/10xx--3xx---------553333333333---|


(Resume Main Riff after the bridge)

    Stand on my feet so I can see yours
    Standing on my hands
    I found my way home standing on my head
