Artist: Jerry Cantrell
Album: Boggy Depot
Song: Jesus Hands

Tabbed by: Todd S. Baginski 

I tabbed this out with the chord names for the standard tuning, but actually
you tune
the guitar down a half a step to play it.  For the Intro and Verse parts
turn on your
chorus and reverb effects.  For the Chorus turn on the distortion until it
starts to
break up and  feedback slightly so you have the saturated, chrunchy tone
just loves to jam with.

If anyone can figure out the weird shrieking/squealing guitar parts please
post em,
I have no clue how many effects he uses to make those sweet sounds. They
and the song isn't the same w/o them.

Intro and Verse parts:

	Em	     A7
e:     -------------0---------------------------0---------|
B:    ----------------3---------------------3-----3-------|
G:    ----------0-------0---------------0-----------0-----|
D:    -------2-------------2---------2--------------------|
A:    -----2-----------------------1----------------------|
E:    ---0------------------------------------------------|

Chorus:  During this part you toss in mutes on the E and A strings
	    in between some of the chords.  Listen to it to figure it out.

           E  G5 A5   E
e:	------------------------------------------------------|
B:	------------------------------------------------------|
G:	------------------------------------------------------|
D:	-2----------------------------------------------------|
A:	-2---5---5-5--5-5/7-7-hold--7---5---7-7---5---7-------|
E:	-0---0---3-3--3-3/5-5-hold--0---0---5-5---3---5-------|

Play this at the end of the Chorus part:

e:	-------------------------|
B:	-------------------------|
G:	-------------------------|
D:	----2--2------------2-2--|
A:	----2--2-p-1--------2-2--|
E:	----0--0------------0-0--|


If you ever torch your bridges
If you're ever past the starlight
If you're ever unassured
Forever you will burn
As you sleep unearthly grace
Lay Jesus hands upon your face
To this sea you've been shot down
Now find the shore.  It can be found
Can be found
Can be found
If you ever crack your small mind
If you're ever much disturbed
If you ever reach the shore
Forever be your turn
As you sleep unearthly grace
Lay Jesus hands upon your face
To this sea you've been shot down
Now find the shore, it can be found
Can be found
Can be found

The chords in the beginning should be just Em7 instead of Em & A7. the second is Bb6/-5 (or Gm6)
