  Forget   the   Swan        a  stone  swims   near...
(Repeat)

[Chorus 2] (This part is difficult to hear due to Lou Barlow's bass parts often sound 
similar to Mascis's guitar parts, but here's the general chord structure.)

A|2--2-2--2-2---|0--0-0--0-0---|--------------|3--3-3-3-3-2-1|
E|3--3-3--3-3---|0--0-0--0-0---|--------------|--------------|
  How     I     tried    to    warn   my      neighbor...
