Nothingman  (Easy Acoustic Version)

Pearl Jam

Tuning: Whole step down EADGBE -> DGCFAD 
        (1/2 step down works too but is less accurate)

Chords transpose to: 
G = 320033, Em = 022000, D = xx0232, C = x32010 

I've tried to indicate an important chord transition between C and Em, that should be
exaggerated, with > symbols.

[Intro]
|1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . 4 . . . |1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . 4 . . . |
 V v-u-v V v-u-v V v-u-v V v(u)v  V v-u-v V v-u-v V v-u-v V v-u-v(u) *
|G                       Em      |D       Em      C               |
|G                       Em      |D       Em      C               |

* Strumming pattern: 
V = downs on bass strings, v = quick downs on high strings, u = quick ups on high strings

[Verse 1] (same pattern as intro)
|1  .  .  .  2  .  .  .  3  .  .  .  4  .  .  .  |
|G                                   Em          |
 Once      divided,                             
|D           Em          C                       |  
nothing left to    sub - tract.
|G                                   Em          |
 Some words when spoken                           
|D           Em          C                       | 
 can't  be   taken       back.
|G                                   Em          |
 Walks on his own       (oh...     ..ohn)    with 
|D           Em          C                       | 
 thoughts he can't help  thinking.
|G                                   Em          |
 Future's   above,                     but in the 
|D           Em          C                       | 
 past   he's slow   and  sinking.
|C                     > Em        > C           |
 Caught a bolt of lightning,           cursed the
|C                     > Em        > C           |
 day he let it go...    (oo..        oo...)
|C                       D                / / // |
                                         (intensify for chorus segue)

[Chorus]
|1 .  .  . 2 .  .  . 3 .  .  . 4 .  .  . |
 V  v-u-v  V  v-u-v  V  v-u-v  V  v-u-v-u
|G                   Em      > C         |
 Noth-ing--man,      
|G                   Em      > C         |
 Nothingma-a--a-an 
|G                   Em      > C         |
 Isn't it something?           Noth-a-an-
|D                                       |
-man...           (..nnn)

[Verse 2]
|G                Em       |D        Em     C         |
 She once believed in every story he had to tell.
|G                     Em  |D        Em     C         |
 One day she stiffened, and took the other side.
|G              Em        |D           Em            C         |
 Empty stares... from each corner of a shared prison cell.
|G                Em    |D      Em       C        |
 One just escapes, one's left inside the well.
|C                 > Em > C       |C             > Em > C    |
 And he who forgets     ...will be destined to remember...(er..)
|C            D    ////  | 
(ah,  ah,       oh-whoa!)

[Chorus]
|G           Em   > C   |
 Nothin'man,      
|G           Em   > C   |
 Nothin'man 
|G                  Em  > C    |D             |
 Isn't it something?      Nothanman

[Bridge]
|1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . 4 . . . |
 V (v-v) V (v-v) V (v-v) V  vuvu
|Em              C               |
 Oh,     oh      she don't want him 
|Em              C               |
 Oh,     oh      she won't feed him,    
|Em              C               |

|C               Em   > C        |           
 Into the sun,              yeah 
|C               Em   > C        |
 Into the sun.. (unn ..uhun 
|C               D         ////  |
 Burn,   burn,   burn,   Burrrn!

[Chorus]
|G           Em   C   |
 Nothin'man,      
|G           Em   C   |
 Nothin'man 
|G                     Em    C     |D             |
 Coulda been something,    a Nothan'man      (ahh..)
|G           Em   C   |
 Nothin'man,      
|G           Em   C   |
 Nothin'man 
|G                      Em   C     |D             |
 Shoulda been something,     nothan'man.

[Outro]

|G           Em    C     |

|G           Em    C     |
(doh,  dum,        ladidah)
|G           Em    C     |
