Just to see if I'll come around

Resume [Riff 4], but on D in place of A:
D  C  G                   A  C  G
      I wish, I wish I could fly 
I wish, I wish I could lie(?)
I will, I will try
I will, I will, goodbye

Song continues on D, feedback solo.  Yeah, good luck.
End on D

This is how I play Drown, I tried to duplicate the guitar tones as close
as possible by using alot of open strings, as the pumpkins do alot. Any
comments would be appreciated.  Other songs are coming!
