Interpreted by D. Ramm (dramm9@excite.com)

I've seen other tab interpretations of this song and I'm a bit perturbed at what
seems to be some very tone deaf people out there. Not to say I am anywhere near
perfect in my interpretation but this seems to work just fine playing in a jam
session. (Note, Mr "other people are tone deaf"'s tab has now been corrected.)

Creep by Stone Temple Pilots (Chords plus some tabs)

Opening
    C   B7(open E)  Em     |  C    B7    Em
                                        
        e|--0--|                e|--2--|
        B|--0--|                B|--0--|
        G|--2--|                G|--2--|
        D|--1--|                D|--1--|
        A|--2--|                A|--2--|
        E|--x--|                E|--x--|

*   Alternate the B7(Open E) and the B7 in the verse.
**  When playing Em in the bridge, you can alternate the chord by holding B string
(3rd Fret) and high E string (3rd fret) back and forth.
*** I am well aware the last line of the bridge has a variance on the C to D. I
found this the easiest way to play it however.


[Verse]

 Em           C    B7               Em
Forward yesterday makes me want to stay
 Em                 C     B7               Em
What they said was real, makes me want to steal
 Em           C           B7               Em
Living under house, yes I'm living I'm a mouse
 Em           C             B7               Em
All I got is time, got no meaning just a rhyme


[Bridge]

G                Am                      Em    
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
G                Am                     Em  
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G                Am                     C                  D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal***


[Chorus] 

(See Chorus Guitar Riff)

 A                                  B
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                  B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                  B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                  B
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be


[Verse]

Em          C       B7                 Em
Feeling Uninspired, think I'll start a fire
Em          C       B7        Em
Everybody run, Bobby's got a gun
Em                   C              B7               Em
Think you're kind'a neat, then she tells me I'm a creep
Em                      C               B7             Em
Friends don't mean a thing, guess I'll leave it up to me


[Bridge]

G                Am                      Em
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
G                Am                     Em    
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G                Am                      C                 D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal


[Chorus]

 A                                    B
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be


[Break]

  ///  ///  ///       ///
Em   Em   Em   Em(Hold)
         Yeeaahh

(There are some small fingering/plucking parts amongst the Em's, figure 'em out yourself)


[Bridge]

G                Am                      Em
Take time with a wounded hand, cause It likes to heal
G                Am                     Em   
Take time with a wounded hand, guess I like to steal
G                Am                      C                D
Take time with a wounded hand, cause it likes to heal, I like to steal


[End Chorus]

 A                                    B
I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be (yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey)
 A                                    B
Well I'm half the man I used to be, Half the man I used to be
 A                                    B
(fading) Half the man I used to be


[Chorus Guitar Riff]

(A)                                 (B)                            \****
I'm half the man I used to be       yes I feel as the dawn it fades to grey
  e|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
  B|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
  G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------| x2
  D|-----0-------0-------0-------0-2-|-----0-------0-------0-----------|
  A|---2-------2-------2-----0-2-----|---2-------2-------2-----0-1-2---|
  E|-0-----0-2-----2-3-----3---------|-0-----0-2-----2-3-----3---------|

Repeat 3x (After last part play Em)

**** Vocal Note: The chorus is actually two vocal tracks overlaid on the album.

For the purpose of clarity I will call them (a) & (b)

Chorus (b) continues while Chorus (a) and the Guitar Riff breaks in immediately
after singing 'fades' in  Chorus (b)

If sung solo, you must truncate (cut-off) the last part of Chorus (b)..(i.e. 'to grey')

This is perfect accept the chord timeing w/ the lyrics but like strum patterns thats something people can figure out on their own.
