Dumb (unplugged) ? Nirvana
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed by: SsPunk
Email: Lithium_monkey@hotmail.com

This is because all the other versions are wrong.
This is the EXACT way its played on unplugged, The album version is in standard tuning.

C| = chords

S| = strumming pattern thing
d = Downstrum
u = Upstrum

Tuning: Eb (low to high Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)

Note: the chords are what they would be if the song was in standard tuning.

Intro/verse riff:


C| E5 A5 G5 C5 |
eb|---------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|---------------------2---2---------------------------5---5-----|
Db|---------2-----------2---2---------------5-----------5---5-----|
Ab|---------2-------0-----------0-----------5-------3-----------3-|
Eb|-0-----------0-------------------3-----------0-----------------|


Chorus:

C| Em | Em | G | G |
S| d d u | d u d | d u d u | d u d |

Bridge:

C| B5 | B5 | D5 | D5 |
S| d d u | d u d | d u d u | d u d |

Outro:

same as intro But you could just play these open chords:

Em A G C


Chords Used:

Em: 022000
E5: 022XXX
G: 320003
G5: 355XXX
A: X02220
A5: X022XX
B5: X24422
C: X32010
C5: X355XX
D5: X57755

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun

Chorus:
I think I'm dumb
or maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy

Verse 2:
my heart is broke
But I have some glue
help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down

Chorus 2:
And have a hangover...
Have a hangover

Bridge:
Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burns
Wake me up

Outro:
I think I?m Dumb, I think I?m Dumb
