Verse 1:
I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

Chorus:
Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea
I'm anemic royalty

Verse 2:
Give me Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

Chorus:
I'm so tired I can sleep
I'm anemic royalty
I'm a liar and a thief
I'm anemic royalty

Verse 3:
I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavored antacids

Chorus:
Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
I'm anemic royalty
I'm anemic royalty

NOTES:
Kurt strums the chorus differently for the 3 times they are played in the song,
what I tabbed is correct for the 1st chorus part only. However, rest assured that
the 3 chorus parts use the same chords, it's just a different strumming pattern Kurt
used. Also, Verse 3 is played slower than the other verses.. and so is the outro, which
also softens towards the end.

Sounds good to me. Great Tab. Mostly just play the chords (Am and G) according to sound and don't forget the 0,3,0 on low E string and you got it.
