Title:  Up On the Sun
Artist: Meat Puppets
Album:  Up on the Sun
Tabber: jealousagain38 @ gmail . com

This song's really good-- one of the Meat Puppets' best.

The intro of the song is made up of the main riff, which goes as follows.

E-----------------------|
B-----------------------|
G-------6-4-------------|
D-----------6-4---------|
A---------------7-4-----|
E-0-----------------7-4-|

During the verse, an overdubbed guitar plays this, also.
During shows, and on the other guitar in the stuidio version, this is played
while the bass is on E:

E-xx4-xxxx4xxxx4-|
B-xx5-xxxx5xxxx5-|
G-xx4-xxxx4xxxx4-|
D----------------|
A----------------|
E----------------|

Those are the riffs for the song. Here are the chords.

E                                                A
A long time ago / I turned to myself / And said,”you are my daughter”
E                                               A
I saw that the image / I saw there was well, / “so you are my daughter”
B                                        E
Well then maybe we’ve got / Something to talk about.
E                                         A
Who told you so? / That gold burns slow / Like coal camper’s candles / All lost in the snow
E                                               A                  E    B
Lay down your arms / The war that I’m weaving / Is for you alone / Oh / Oh
E                                             D
Up on the sun where it never rains or snows / There’s an ocean / With a wind that never blows
E
And if you see it closer / Then the finer points will show
B                   E        A      B                   E        A
Not too much more / Too much more / Not too much more / Too much More
