This is a great song, sounds really cool with just a rythym guitar.

The strumms follow the syllables of the lyrics with lots of muting. The E7 is played as an E chord with the baby finger hitting the E7 fingering for 2 seperate upstrumms and E for the downstrumms.

I cant take credit though, I scooped this of then net. Accurate chords.
E D
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
A G E E7
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
E D
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
A G E E7
and speak my point of view but it's not sane, It's not sane
E D E D
I just want some one to say to me oh,
E D E D
I'll always be there when you wake yeah...
E D E D
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
E D E D
So stay with me and I'll have it made
E D
And I don't understand why I sleep all day
A G E E7
And I start to complain that there's no rain
E D
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
A G E
It rips my life away, but it's a great escape

escape, escape, escape

Play this during guitar solo... E D E D

E D
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
A
ya don't like my point of view
G E
ya think that I'm insane

Its not sane, it's not sane
E D E D
I just want someone to say to me oh,
E D E D
I'll always be there when you wake yeah,
E D E D
Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
E D E D
so stay with me and I'll have it made

Cheers,

Max

One caveat about these being accurate chords - this is going to be a song for a capo/transposition for a lot of people.

Shannon Hoon's voice was so high it's beyond the reach of a lot of people. Singing it exactly one octave down is too low to be comfortable for me, and I dare say a few others too. I sing capo'd at the 5th myself, and then bring the vocals down to match.
