                          "Down In It"
                         Nine Inch Nails


   On the album I'm pretty sure this is a synthisizer part, but 
this is the way I think that they played it at Woodstock II.

E Bar chords primarily on the 8th and 9th frets here's the fingering: 

          IIIIII                    
          XXXXXX                    
          IIIXII
          IXXIII                    

Use an upstrum every time, only hit the highest 3 or 4 strings.
\ - downstrum
()- softly

 8th                   8th
    Now I'm down in it    Now I'm down in it 
8th
Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky
                                                 8th
and I was feeling some feeling you wouldn't believe
                                                      9th             8th
Sometimes I don't believe in myself and I decided I was never coming down
                                                                         8th 
Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about to small to see
                                   9th           8th
But I watched it way too long it was pulling me down 

           8th                9th

(chorus)
          (8th)      9th 8th
I was up above it      I was up above it
6th  5th\                
 Now I'm down in it
          (8th)       9th 8th 
I was up above it      I was up above it
6th  5th\
           Now I'm down in it

(no guitar)
Shut up so what what does it matter now
I was swimming in the haze now I crawl on the ground
And everything I never liked about you is kinda seeping into me
Try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works out
"I guess the jokes on me," she said

(chorus)

9th
I used to be so big and strong
                             9th
I used to know my right from wrong
I used to never be afraid
I used to be somebody

9th
I used to have something inside
                                    9th
Now it's just this hole that's open wide
I used to want it all 
I used to be somebody

(no guitar)
I'll cross my heart I'll hope to die but the needle's already in my eye
And all the world's weight is on my back, I don't even know why
What I used to think was me is just a fading memory
I looked him right in the eye and said goodbye

(play through regular chorus)
 
         (8th)      9th 8th
I was up above it      I was up above it
6th  5th\                
Now I'm down in it

I was up above it

Rain rain go away come again some other day
8th 9th             6th 5th\
Rain rain go away come again some other day
8th
Rain rain go away come again some other day
8th 9th             6th 5th\
Rain rain go away come again some other day

           (8th)
I was up above it   
uhhhhhhhhhh
8th  9th
I was up above it
6th 5th\
uhhhhhhhhh ahh
Now I'm down in it
I was up above it
uhhhhhhhhhhh  owwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Now i'm down in it
