Blue, from "Lull" (Rhinoceros EP) - Smashing Pumpkins

-Although the bass is drop D tuning, the guitars are regular tuned (I think).
Here's how I play it...

|-----3-------1-------3-------   -----2-------0---------------------------------|
|-----3-------1-------5-------   -----3-------1---------------------------------|
|-----4-------2-------5-------   -----4-------0---------------------------------|
|-----5-------3-------5-------   -----4-------2---------------------------------|
|-----5-------3-------3-------   -----2-------3---------------------------------|
|-----3-------1---------------   -----------------------------------------------|
  <------Verse--------->         <---"Chorus" ----------------------------------|

- The above is for rhythm guitar (James).  Billy plays the following (I think):

|-----------------------------   -----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------   -----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------   -----------------------------------------------|
|-----5b6b5---\3/10-----------   ----------------------------(16)b14------------|
|-----------------------------   ----5----7----9/10---12------------------------|
|-----3b4b3---\1/8------------   -----------------------------------------------|
  <-----Verse---------->           <--------"Chorus"----------------------------|

-  At the end of the 2nd chorus the chord is some wierd Am which looks like
              |---1----|      (Am/D?)

- Here's the slow part...

  |---3-------------0-------------      ----------------------------------------|
  |---0-(or 3)------1-------------      ------------------------13--12----------|(pinky)
  |---4-------------2-------------      ----------------------------------------|
  |---5-------------3-------------      ---12----12-----10--10--10--10----------|
  |---5-------------3-------------      ------14--------12--12--12--12----------|
  |---3-------------1-----(thumb)-      ----------------------------------------|
     <-----James------->                     <---------Billy--------------------|

-  I could be wrong on a lot of things here, but this is how I play it and it
 comes out sounding pretty good.  Any comments appreciated.

   Hey, Blue, all your love is strange
   Come out, with all those crazy names
   So true, when you laugh

   For you, Blue

   Right or wrong?
   I belong...right or wrong.

   Hey, Blue, where'd you run to now? (Hey Blue)
   Miss you since they found you out
   I've been waiting for such a long hour
   For your smile...

   For you, Blue

   I lay with you this velvet moment
   Stay with me for a while
   Where we run is up to you
   Just stay with me for a while.
