From 1991's 'Pretty on the Inside'. So, I'll be honest, this song is INSANE. It is all
over the place, so I simplified it enough to make a coherent tab for it. There's tons of
stuff going on in here, from slides to bends to wahs to finger-picking and ridiculous
distortion and feedback, some of which I believe was probably improvised, at least in the
outro. You can improvise in the bridge as well; what I tabbed was just a rough guide to
what I hear going on in there. Regardless, this sounds close enough and if anything can
be a guide for more experienced guitarists to build on. There are no tabs out there for 
this song which is a shame because it's an awesome track. Good luck! (NOTE:  There are two
guitars present here, but it's possible to play with one as well. The tab denotes the
verses where Riff A and B are played together ("Riff A/B"), but if using one guitar, only
play Riff B during these. Riff D and E are also played together at the end of the song, 
which is indicated in the tab).

Tabbed by: Scott H.

"/" = slide up

    Black lung coat and a little crown

    The sick milk clot and the sweet cream udder
    The weird red light that pulls you under

    And now I'm loaded


Riff D
    Yeah, now I'm loaded

Riff A
    Blood-red coat and a little crown

Riff A
    That's the crown that you get when you fall down

Riff A
    Hey, baby, won't you wave goodbye

Riff A
    As you go up the fuckin' weird red light

Riff A/B
    The sun spits on your rawhide
    As you dance to the sound of a suicide

Riff A/B
    He only laughs when you're trying to hide
    That you're the rat poison daughter of a suicide

Riff C
    Slut me open and suck my scars

Riff C
    You better open your eyes when I come down

Riff D
    And now I'm loaded
    Yeah, now I'm loaded

Riff A
    Don't blush when I rip you open

Riff A
    Don't blush when I rip you open

Riff A
    Hey, baby, let me look in your eyes

Riff A
    As you go off into your weird red light

Riff A/B
    The pump and grind that I call my head
    The suck-milk nebula I use instead

Riff A/B
    The sweet cream-clot and the sick milk udder
    The weird red light that pulls me under

Riff C
    Leave me open and suck my scars
    You better open your eyes when I come down


***Note: from this point on, while playing Riff D, play the G power chord (3/5/5)
normal, but bend the hell out of the strings on the other chords***


Riff D
    And now I'm loaded
    I just get loaded

Riff D
    And I just get loaded
    I just get loaded


Riff E (Verse):

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|-55555555/15b-15b-15b-15b-15b-15b------|
A|-55555555/15b-15b-15b-15b-15b-15b------|
E|-33333333/13b-13b-13b-13b-13b-13b------|


***Now play riffs D and E in unison if on two guitars***


Riff D/E
    And now I'm loaded

Riff D/E
    So am I, and so am I, and I, I just got, I just got

Riff D/E
    I just get, I just get, I just get loaded

Riff D/E
    I just get loaded

Riff D/E
    The sun, the sun, the sun....


***Now, on the outro riff, bend the strings and hold them for about 5 seconds on each
descending power chord, and then slide your hand up and down the fretboard at the end,
laying your fingers on all the strings***
