                             Otherside Live - Red Hot Chili Peppers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: K3VN
Email: k3vn_rokz@yahoo.com

This version I tabbed is from when the Red hot chili Peppers played in Hyde Park.
I think it is correct, if not close enough.  This song is pretty simple and easy.
This was the first song I learned how to play.  This is also my first tab so
please comment and enjoy!


Tuning: EADGBe

       Light distortion or clean if preferred for this part.
       Also listen to the song to get the strumming right.

  Lyrics:
         I heard your voice through a photograph
         I thought it up; it brought up the past
         Once you know you can never go back
         I've got to take it on the otherside

         Centuries are what it meant to me
         A cemetery where I marry the sea
         Stranger things could never change my mind
         I gotta take it on the otherside
         Take it on the otherside
         Take it on
         Yeah take it on

                                                                Tremolo

  Lyrics:
         Pour my life into a paper cup
         The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts
         She wants to know am I still a slut
         I've got to take it on the otherside

         A scarlet starlet and she's in my bed
         A candidate for my soul mate bled
         I push the trigger and I pull the thread
         I've got to take it on the otherside
         Take it on the otherside
         Take it on
         Yeah take it on
