Black
Pearl Jam


E               A     Asus4 A
Sheets of empty canvas
          E                   A Asus4 A
untouched sheets of clay
E                 A      
They spread out before me
       E
as her body once did


E           A     Asus4 A
All five horizons, 
          E             A                     Asus4 A
revolved around her soul (as the earth to the sun)
E             A                  
Now the air I tasted and breathed,
    E          
has taken a turn    
     C                                   Em
Oooh all I know I taught her was... everything
     C                               Em
Oooh all I know she gave all... that she wore
       D
And my bitter hands
        C
Shake beneath the clouds
                 Em
Of what was everything
        D                      C
All the pictures have all been washed in black
             Em
Tatooed everything.


  E      A           Asus4 A
I take a walk outside
       E               A            Asus4 A
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
E                A        
I can feel their laughter
   E       
So what can I say

    C                                          Em
Ooh all my twisted thoughts they spin round my head (I'm spinnin')
         C                              Em
Oooh I'm spinning how quick the sun can drop awayayayayay
       D  
And my bitter hands
   C
  on broken glass     
                 Em
of what was everything
       D                      C
All my pictures have all been washed in black
Em
Tatooed everything
       D  
All my love gone bad
          C
turned my world to black
            D
tatooed all I see
         C
All that I am
              Em
All that I'll beeeeee    yeaahheah

  D                         
I know some day you'll have a beautiful life
  C
I know you'll be a sun, 
   Em                  D              C
In somebody elses sky, whyhy, whyhy   whyhy
                            Em                 
can't it be, can't it be in mine.

the lyrics are incorrect... and also it is posted as a tab, but you posted the chords.
