Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is Lou Reed's part of the song. I know most people really hate the Lulu
album, but this is one of the songs that I've stumbled across that I think
didn't sound that bad. Maybe it was the hypnotic riff or Lou's lyrics, but
whatever it was, I like this song. I was also really surprised how easy
Lou's part was. Just two chords. The same two chords throughout the entire
song. The same two basic beginner chords throughout the entire song. Anyone
can play this song regardless of your playing abilities. At first I didn't 
believe it until I watched Lou Reed and Metallica play this song live on a
couple of YouTube videos and it just reinforced how simple Lou Reed is at
playing guitar. If you somehow are having any problems with the strumming
or the beat of the song, please listen to the song and try playing along.
Also, when you've made your final judgment on the tab, please rate and 
comment.

Please remember, THIS IS WHAT LOU'S PART OF THE SONG IS. SO DON"T BE
SURPISSED IF I DIDN'T TAB WHAT METALLICA PLAY.

Chords: lowEADGBe
         D:XX0232
         G:32003X

Each chord is played for two measures of 4/4 timing in a constant loop. 

Intro:

D G D G

Verse 1:
    D
You can't put a butterfly in a jar
G
If the effort's too high no matter who you are
    D
You can't catch the moon, or the sun or the stars
G
It doesn't matter who you are

Chorus:
     D
Iced honey
     G
Iced honey

Verse 2:
D
 Now me I've tried a million tricks
   G
To make life cold and make it stick
    D
Not running heat that flames then out
        G
But the proud piece of ice that always floats

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
     D
If I can't trap a butterfly or a bee
     G
If I can't keep my heart where I want it to be
      D
If no matter how much soul and heart I put to the wood
     G
If a flaming heart is not that good

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 4:
       D
If you can't put a butterfly in a jar
   G
If violence mars your final hour
       D
If you make others feel like jam
G
Poured on a piece of charbroiled lamb

Verse 5:
        D
If it's all mixed up and you cannot shout
         G
And your oxygen starts to run out
        D
If your final gasp has the recipe wrong
    G
And instead of hello you say so long

Verse 6:
        D
If your energy starts to leak out
    G
And people wonder what you're all about
  D
A heartbreaker with an unattached heart
    G
The story of love gives them all a start

Verse 7:
    D
And me, I've always been this way
       G
Not by choice, just this way
  D
I can't put my honey pot in a jar 
     G
Or a heart or a fist of some young boy

Verse 8:
       D
If you can't put a butterfly in a jar
          G
No wonder no need to wonder where you are
   D
It might seem like Hell, the river Styx
G
Your affection never sticks

Verse 9:
D
No matter what you say, no matter what you do
  G
A butterfly heart flies right past you
        D
There's nothing to say, nothing to do
G
See if the ice will melt for you

Bridge:
D
See if the ice will melt for you
G
See if the ice will melt for you
D
See if the ice will melt for you
D
See if the ice will melt for you

Chorus:
     D
Iced honey
     G
Iced Honey
    D
Iced honey
     G
Iced Honey

(Repeat Bridge)

Outro Chorus:
     D
Iced honey (See if the ice will melt for you)
     G
Iced Honey (See if the ice will melt for you)
     D
Iced honey (See if the ice will melt for you)
                       G
See if the, see if the ice will melt for you
                      (See if the ice will melt for you)
     D
Iced honey (See if the ice will melt for you)
     G
Iced Honey (See if the ice will melt for you)
     D
Iced honey

And that should be that for the Lou Reed and Metallica song Iced Honey. I 
tried to get the chord changes as best as I can to match with Lou's spoken
singing style. As I've stated before, please rate and comment my tab when
