	Sometimes a Jimi Thing
	Slides my way and keeps me 
	Swinging I'd like to show you what's inside,
	I shouldn't care if you do or don't like it
	Brother chaos rule all about
	Sometimes I walk there
	Well yes, God knows, sometimes I take a bus there
	Shouldn't care
	I shouldn't care

	      A
	bereaved as I'm feeling


BACK TO INTRO

	2.	The day is gone

		Staring up at the celing
		I take a drink sit back relax
		Smoke my mind make me feel better for a small time

		What I want is what I've GOT NOT
		And what I need is all around me
		Reaching searching never stop

a good effort, but this is way off. The other version on this site is better but still not accurate. Check out
dmbtabs.com for the most accurate Dave tabs out there.
