play riff1 while Shannon says

"hair raising shake you're much too late 

you should have jumped a couple cars before

now if i may i'll walk away 

i'm selling silly putty door to door

and up on the shelf it seems to help

if i can keep a little bit of disease"



Riff 2

G  - - 7 - X - - - X - - - - - - - X - - - X X - X - - 		repeat

D  - - - - X - 9 - X - 7 / 9 \ 7 - X - 5 - X X - X - - 



(2)

"and it's feedin' on me  

you see it's bringin' me to my knees"



Chorus riff

E  - 17 - - - - - - - 13 - 12 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

B  - - - - 15 - 17 - - - - - - - 15 - 13 - 15 - 13 - 12 - 13 - 15 - 12^13 - 12^13  	

G  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -



(chorus)

"as we aaaall wilt

waaaatching you wilt"



then play:

E  - - - - - 3 - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

B  - - - - - 3 - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

G  - - - - - - - - X - - - - - - - - - - 

D  - - - - - - - - X - - - - - - - - - - 

A  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 1 - - - 

E  - - 3 - - - - - - - - 1 - 3 - - - 3 - 

once and return to riff 1



the bridge part goes:

D  - - - X - 3 3 3 - X - - - - - - - - - - 

A  - - - X - - - - - X 1 - 1 - 3 - - - - - 	and repeat

E  - 3 3 - - - - - - - - - - - - - 1 1 1 - 



the solo is a bunch of E-bow slides and stuff, uncharacteristicly simple for 

Blind Melon, because they usually have a fast complex solo in there 

somewhere, and anyway it probably won't sound right if you are like me and 

don't have an E-bow, so I'm-a-leavin' it out, but here's the other guitar's part 

during the solo:



G  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 1 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

D  - 3 - - - - - - - - - - X - 3 - - - 3 - - - - - - - - - - - X - - - 1 - 			+repeat

A  - - - - - - - - - - - - X - - - - - - - 1 - 1 1 1 - 1 1 1 - X - 3 - - - 

E  - - 1 - 1 1 1 - 1 1 1 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 



There's probably some small stuff missing in this transcription, but you can 

probably figure it out on your own if you listen close.  



"May Shannon Hoon's spirit rest in peace forevermore, and let the beauty 

that is Blind Melon shine down on all the good people of Earth and fill them 

with it's glorious cosmic energy." - oath of the Devout Melonhead
