This is (in case you hadn't noticed) the tab for The Man Who Sold The World, by David
Bowie. Not Nirvana you idiots, they copied it, I mean the better, original version, by
David Bowie.

                   A7                          Dm                       
We passed upon the stairs, we spoke of was and when 

                  A7                       F     
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend               

                      C                       A                                                      
Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eye 

                    Dm                          RIFF 2     RIFF 2(w/distortion)
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

   RIFF 2    RIFF 3
Oh no,   Not me,

  Abm            F
I never lost control,

       RIFF 2   RIFF 3       
You're face, to face

         Abm              A        
With the man who sold the world

RIFF 1 (w/distortion)
                       A7                         Dm                                           
I smiled and shook his hand, and made my way back home. 

                        A7                          F 
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed

                 C                          A                                                 
I gazed a gazely stare, at all the millions here 

                 Dm                              RIFF 2     RIFF 2(w/distortion)
We must've died alone, a long long time ago

    RIFF 2       RIFF 3
Who knows?   Not me,

   Abm            F
We never lost control,

       RIFF 2   RIFF 3
You're face, to face

         Abm              A         
With the man who sold the world

RIFF 1 (w/distortion)

Idiots?? Anyone who knows anything about music or has even listened to the Nirvana unplugged album knows this is a Bowie song. Cobain says it on the recording.
Copied?? It is called a cover. Fine tab with lyrics included, but keep your opinions out of it.
