Black
PEARL JAM
First on the album Ten (1991)
This "live" version can be heard in most of the shows they've been doing ever since.


The other versions were not 100% accurate in my opinion, especially the end. I also added some lyrics Vedder
and the backings sing when they do the song live.
This is one of the best songs ever. What an incredible first album! 
This tab is dedicated to Coralie, the love of my life.

The Asus4 is optional.


E                  A     Asus4 A 
Sheets of empty canvas
          E            A Asus4 A 
Untouched sheets of clay
E                   A 
Where spread out before me
   E 
As her body once did

E           A     Asus4 A 
All five horizons,
          E             A                    Asus4 A 
Revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
E             A 
Now the air I tasted and breathed
E 
Has taken a turn    

C                                     Em 
Oooh and all I taught her was... everything
C                                    Em 
Oooh I know she gave me all that she wore
              D 
And my bitter hands
        C 
Chafe beneath the clouds
                 Em 
Of what was everything
                 D              C 
All the pictures have all been washed in black
              Em 
Tatooed everything


E        A           Asus4 A 
I take a walk outside
       E                       A            Asus4 A 
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
E                  A 
I can feel their laughter
            E 
So why do I sear?

C                                           Em
Ooh and twisted thoughts that spin round my head I'm spinnin'
         C                                    Em 
Oooh I'm spinning how quick the sun can drop away
              D 
And my bitter hands
          C 
Cradle broken glass 
                Em 
Of what was everything
                D              C 
All my pictures have all been washed in black
             Em 
Tatooed everything
        D 
All my love gone bad
          C 
Turned my world to black
              D 
Tatooed all I see
           C 
All that I am
               Em  D             C
All that I'll beeeeee    yeaahheah
Em
Mmmmmh
D
Mmmmmh
C  Em
Mmmmmh

  D 
I know some day you'll have a beautiful life
  C 
I know you'll be a star,
   Em                     D                 C 
In somebody elses sky but why why  can't it be
               Em D  C
Can't it be in miiiine ?

Em D  C
AAAAAAHH
Em D  C
AAAAAAHH

              Em
Tututu tu tututu
              D
Tututu tu tututu

Tututu tu tututu

Never mind my previous comment about missing lyrics: I was mistaken. Thank you!
