Title: Underground
Kimya Dawson
tabbed by Sara

Very very simple, which is part of the reason Kimya is so wonderful. This is all by ear, 
feel free to augment at will.

C                       G
My head is pounding, I can't stop the pounding
Am                      F
I think it is going to explode
C                    G
And kill everybody who's in close proximity
Am                      F
to the place I call my home
C                              G
And they'll make a moving made for tv movie
Am                        F
For lifetime all about my life
C                          G
That ends with an epitaph, one that will make you laugh
Am                         F
That says "great mom, okay wife"
C                         G
And it'll be funny to the people who know me
Am                         F
Who know if my body's not burned
C                         G
My soul will spend an eternity in misery
Am                        F
Tethered and bound to this earth
C                      G
So I'm not a dick or a stick in the mud
Am                           F
Always ruining things for my friends
C                      G
I mustn't forget when I see the sun set
Am                         F
That tomorrow it will rise again 


Chorus 
C           G               Am     F
So I tattoo instructions on my ass
C                    G       Am         F
That say don't ever put this body in a casket
C         G          Am     F
Burn and put the ashes in a basket
C           G        Am       F
And throw it in the Puget sound
C            G        Am       F
I don't ever want to be underground
C      G           Am F
Oh no, Oh no


C      G       Am       F       x3


Verse 2

C            G            Am            F
I'm wearing size thirteen basketball shoes
C            G            Am            F
And lavender fishnets, I'm freaked out and fucked up
C            G            Am            F
And I'm standing alone in an alley with you
C            G            Am            F
Wanting to show you a cure for your hiccups
C            G            Am            F
But instead I close my eyes
    C            G              Am           F
The needles are numbered so I'm writing you letters
C            G            Am            F
And I cannot disguise
    C             G            Am      F 
The fact that I'm nervous when we are together
C            G            Am            F
And so I fantasize
C            G            Am            F
That the nights'll get shorter and the days will get better
C            G            Am            F
I feel a kick inside, inside
C            G            Am            F
If this is a girl, I'm naming her heather
C            G            Am            F
She'll look just like you, but her hair will be feathered
C            G            Am            F (hold F)
She'll say how you died before you ever met her 

                 C          G     Am    F
Her hair will be feathered


C                      G
My head is pounding, I can't stop the pounding
Am                  F
I think it is going to explode
C                            G    
There are plus and minuses to sinusitis
Am                      F
Like sometimes I get to go home
C                          G
But mostly it hurts so bad I think I'm dying
Am                          F
I just blew my nose and now I feel like crying
C                             G
And the dreams I have are all of my past lives
Am                             F
And the seizures would paralyse me in the night
C                        G
And I'd wake up clutching my teddy bear tight
Am                             F
And I'm drooling and trying to turn on the light
C                     G    
All I can do is hold fast and sit tight
Am                           F
But what if they forget? cause you know they just might 



Chorus 
C           G               Am     F
So I tattoo instructions on my ass
C                    G       Am         F
That say don't ever put this body in a casket
C         G          Am     F
Burn and put the ashes in a basket
C           G        Am       F
And throw it in the Puget sound
C            G        Am       F
I don't ever want to be underground
C      G           Am F
Oh no, Oh no


C      G       Am       F       x3 

F              strum Bb

I just made my own chord version but it didn't get accepted because there already was a version. I saw kimya live and saw that she plays it with a capo on 2 and with the same chords as this one except instead of G she uses a C/B

hmmm...I play it D,A,Bm, and G throughout with no capo and it sounds fine but I think I'll try gina-marie's suggestion...
