Play this a couple times.

Verse 1:

One voice tryin’ to be heard  (Intro Riff)
E
Round peg livin’ in a square world (Intro Riff)

C  G  D

Bridge:

(D)                                 C  G  D
We were strangers in a strange land
(D)                                 C  G  D
We were reaching for the upper hand
	  (D)
We were hard to understand

Chorus:

       E
It was juvenile,
       G
It was something wild,
	A
Part of every child,
E
Yeah, you had to be there.
	  E
It was rough and tough,
       G
It was peace and love,
       A
All of the above,
E
Yeah, you had to be there.


Post-chorus riff (after first chorus only):

e|-----------------|---------------|
B|-----------------|---------------|
G|-----------------|---------------|	Then Intro Riff
D|-----------------|---------------|	again.
A|-----------------|---------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|


Verse 2:

E
Outcast, this, there, that, so full of it (Intro Riff)
E
Don’t tell me it’s somethin’ that you never did (IntroRiff)

C  G  D

Then the Bridge again, chorus again. Then straight into:

Pre-solo Riff:

e|-----------------|-----------------|---------------------|
B|-----------------|-----------------|---------------------|
G|-----------------|-----------------|---------------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|---------------------|
A|-----------------|-7-7-7-7-7--5----|---------7-7-7-7-7-7-|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|--------------7-3|-(3)-5s7-------------|

e-----------|
B-----------|
G-----------|
D-----------|
A-7-7-5-----|
E-------7-3-|

Play this four times. Each time you hit the low G note, do the 5s7 to get back to E on
7th fret. I don’t have the solo tabbed. After the solo, hit an E, let it ring, while
“You had to be there” a few times. Then go into the chorus again, bumping the chords up 
the 7th, 10th, and 12th frets. End by playing chorus normally again. Let the last E ring.
is correct. I know I've written the timing wrong, but the notes are right.
“And you can tell Rolling Stone Magazine that my last words were... ‘I dig music.’”
