        My my, Hey hey (Live on Rust Never Sleeps and Live Rust 1978)
                                                                      by Neil Young
        ***************************************************************************

        NOTES: This is a quite good transcription of the song (a tribute to Johny Rotten)
        I guess, allthough I think I made some very little mistakes. If you can correct
        them, please mail me. Neil plays this song tuning his guitar to the dropped D
        tuning (DGCFAD) but if you play it in standard tuning as I do it will work out
        as well. I have put the song in tab but at the bottom of this page you can see
        it as well with ordinary chords. Sometimes less is more.

        CHORDS used in this song:

        You can play the intro in three different ways but I guess the first is the most accurate.
        You can use the others if you think the first is too difficult :)

            It's better to burn out                     Than to fade away
            And once you're gone you can                never come back
            It's better to burn out                     than it is to rust
            There's more to the picture                 Than meets the eye (or: rust never sleeps)

I think your into is just a little bit off. I am listening to the "Live Rust" version of this song and it sounds to me more like.
