About this tab version
This is a simplified version of The Day I Tried to Live, by Soundgarden, with lyrics placed where they are related to the chords. Please use the chords in these respects: Em7 is 022030, Dsus is 200230, Cadd9 is alright how it displays, and G6 is 320030, because I realize the chords displayed are not completely consistent with what I intended to communicate.

[Verse 1]
  Em7         Dsus Cadd9     G6
I woke the same as any other day
  Dsus   Em7           Dsus Cadd9 G6 Dsus
Except a voice was in my head
        Em7          Dsus
It said seize the day,
Cadd9             G6         Dsus
Pull the trigger, drop the blade
    Em7               Dsus Cadd9 G6 Dsus
And watch the rolling heads

[Pre-Chorus]
    Em7            Dsus
The day I tried to live
  Em7              G6       Dsus
I stole a thousand beggar's change
    Em7            Dsus Cadd9 G6 Dsus
And gave it to the rich
    Em7            Dsus
The day I tried to win
   Em7             G6    Dsus
I dangled from the power lines
    Em7             Dsus Cadd9 G6
And let the martyrs stretch

[Chorus]
Dsus
   Singing
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might make it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around
    G6    Dsus     Em7
The day I tried to live

Em7 Dsus Cadd9 G6 Dsus 

[Verse 2]
Em7         Dsus  Cadd9
Words you say     never seem
   G6      Dsus   Em7
To live up to the ones
         Dsus   Cadd9 G6 Dsus
Inside your head
    Em7        Dsus
The lives we make
Cadd9         G6   Dsus   Em7
Never seem to ever get us anywhere
      Dsus Cadd9 G6 Dsus
But dead

[Pre-Chorus]
    Em7            Dsus
The day I tried to live
  Em7             G6         Dsus
I wallowed in the blood and mud with
Em7           Dsus Cadd9 G6
All the other pigs

[Chorus]
Dsus
   Singing
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might make it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around
    G6    Dsus     Em7
The day I tried to live

[Verse 3]
  Em7         Dsus Em7       Dsus
I woke the same as any other day you know
  G6                    Dsus Em7 G6 Dsus
I should have stayed in bed

[Pre-Chorus]
    Em7            Dsus
The day I tried to live
  Em7             G6        Dsus
I wallowed in the blood and mud with
Em7           Dsus
All the other pigs
      Em7                  Dsus
And I learned that I was a liar

[Chorus]
Dsus
   Singing
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might make it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around might do it
Em7              Cadd9
One more time around
    G6    Dsus     Em7   Dsus Cadd9 G6
The day I tried to live

[Outro]
Dsus         Em7 Dsus Cadd9 G6
Just like you
Dsus         Em7 Dsus Cadd9 G6
Just like you

Great Job!! Works really well acoustically for fans of Soundgarden and Chris Cornell, may he rest in peace. I'd suggest for a refrain at the real end, and where Chris is singing, 'One more time around, one more time around...', repeatedly, to maybe just keep strumming a G chord lightly, it creates a somber but really nice atmospheric end to what is a fantastic song and great chordal arrangement by quickstring 133. Also, being that Chris had such an amazing range by dropping the capo to the second fret adds a bit more of a brooding effect in just a single acoustic environment... but sometimes the fourth fret is good also to just go balls out!!:).
