MTV Unplugged - NIRVANA
-----------------------

This file contains the following from
Nirvana's appearance on Unplugged:

About A Girl
Come As You Are
Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam
Dumb
Man Who Sold The World
Pennyroyal Tea
Polly
On A Plain
All Apologies
Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
-----

I didn't include the Meat Puppets songs mainly because
I thought they weren't realy similar to the others in style
and also because I haven't figured out all of Plateau yet :)

All of the TABs where written by me. Jesse Scott.

TUNING: Dropped-D & Down a Half-Step (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

Eb ----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|-

Eb ---------------------|-
Bb ---------------------|-
Gb ----------11-11-9----|-
Db ------------------12-|-
Ab ---9-10-9------------|-
Db -0-------------------|-

That's the main riff.. Then the Chorus:





Eb ----------------------------------------|-
Bb ----------------------------------------|-
Gb ----------------------------------------|-
Db -5-5-5--0-5-5-5--0-5-5-5--0-5-5-5--0--7-|-

TUNING: Down a Half-Step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

Chord Voicings:

E5: 022x0x or 022x00 (Either is find but I think Kurt uses the first)
A: x0222x
G: 320022 or 320002
B: x2444x
B/F#: 22444x

Okay, the song starts off strumming the E5, then Kurt does the following
little run:

E-|-----------------|-
B-|-----------------|-
G-|-----------------|-
D-|--------------2--|-
A-|--------------0--|-
E-|--0--2--3--0-----|-

he then strums the A, G, B then B/F#.. That's the entire progression,
the little run is done only the first two times... Here's the
progression simplified:

E5 E5 E5 A G
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me...

G B B/F# E5
Tell me where did you sleep last night...


--- That's the entire song.. Here's the lyrics:

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I will shiver the whole night through


My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I will shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will ya go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, the pines
The sun, the shine
I'll shiver the whole night though
