Black Keys
Grown So Ugly
Rubber Factory (2004)

[1] Intro-
[-----------------------------------9--------------------1---1-------------------------] ]
[-------5--------5------------------9--------------------2---2-----------( Rep x 8 )---]

Sung in call and response with the above riff:
I got up this morning
Put on my shoes
Tied my shoes
Went to the mirror
For to comb my head
I made a move
Didn't know what to do
Try to break and run


[------------------------------9---7---------------------------] ]
[--------------------------------------10---7---7--------------] ]

[------(Repeat 20x)------------]    At the end of         [------]         [-------]      [5(b)7---]
[---------------------------- ]     each of these        [------]         [8(b)10-]       [--------]
[---------------------------- ]     phrases he either  [-7(b)9-]        [-------]      [-----------]
[---------------------------- ]     does nothing         [------]  or   [-------] or  [------------]
[--------------7---9---9-----]     or something         [------]         [-------]      [----------]
[----7-(h)-9------------------]     like....                    [------]         [-------]      [--]

Baby, this ain't me
Baby, this ain't me
Grown so ugly
Grown so ugly
I don't even know myself
I don't even know myself


[---------------------------------------------------------------(Repeat 4x)----]
[-------------------x--x--------------------------------- x--x-----------------]
[-------------------x--x--------------------------------- x--x-----------------]

I left Angola
Walking down my street
Knock on my baby's door
My baby come out
And asks me who I am
And I say, honey, honey
Don't you know your man?


(E9) I think..

She said my man's been gone
Since 1942
And I'll tell you Mr. Ugly,
He didn't look like you

[5] Outro -
Intro riff x8 with call and response improv. on E blues.

Reasonably sure this is all right.

Be cool,

He actually plays the intro/verse part down on the first fret, starting with an open G string. the part you have on the 9th fret its actually just an open e and b string. the bend on the g is correct along with the e chord.
