Hole - Mrs Jones tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Mrs. Jones by Hole
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From 1991's 'Pretty on the Inside'. This is a frenzied monster of a song, some of Hole's
craziest and most abstract and violent work to date. It's all power chords and slamming
a few open notes, so it's pretty simple if you can get the rhythm and keep up with the
speed. Lots of distortion on the guitar here, and these riffs are played continuously
throughout the verses. All the tabs on here for this song are incomplete and messy, so
I've done some homework on it. Courtney's vocals are wild and the lyrics in it seem to
switch points-of-view as well; lots of gnarly verses and descriptions, but a killer song 
in all of its chaos. Notice that the main riff ("Riff B") is a total rip-off of "Dark
Entries" by
Bauhaus— Courtney has admitted it herself.

Riff B
    Sorry man, sorry, sorry, I've got a bad eye
    I shouldn't have, I shouldn't have looked at it
    I, I shouldn't have looked at it
    Go, go away, go away, on the sugar star
    The sugar star and the abortionist and
    Hey, you want her on the bed
    With her legs wide open, her eyes all spread

    What is the matter with blackjack bones?
    Oh, Mrs. Jones, aw, Mrs. Jones, aw
    Cry me a river but just take me home
    Aw, Mrs. Jones, aw, Mrs. Jones


Riff B
    Sorry man, I got a gut, slit me
    Fuckin' ran away with my abortionist
    My little red-eyed black demonologist
    The knife they used to, to gut my face in
    It's been out stabbing baby, baby angels in
    Smile, smile


Riff C
    The skies are narcotic with blackjack bones
    Oh, Mrs. Jones, please, Mrs. Jones
    My virus is ragin', it's breaking my bones
    Mrs. Jones, please, Mrs. Jones

Riff D
    Come, see mine
    I will, I will follow you
    Down the sick drain
    When I lean on, on the sink
    Don't worry, don't worry
    Don't worry, baby
    You will, you will never stink so bad


Riff B
    Woah, I'm sorry man, I'm sorry
    I shouldn't have looked at it
    I'm sorry man
    You're a night-blooming sickle cell
    You're a night-blooming sickle cell
    Carry it away, get it away
    Look into the bloodroot you suicide bitch
    It takes an hour like you to make me wanna live
    Suddenly, I'm sorry man, I'm sorry man, woah


Riff C
    The skies are narcotic with blackjack bones
    Aw, Mrs. Jones, aw, Mrs. Jones
    Come get your dog, it won't leave me alone
    Oh, Mrs. Jones, please, Mrs. Jones
    My virus is raging and it's breaking my bones
    Oh, Mrs. Jones, please, Mrs. Jones, oh
    Cry me a river baby, but just take me home
    Oh, Mrs. Jones, oh, Mrs. Jones


Riff A
    Sister ectoplasma, she's incredulous
    Just like a pro, she takes off her dress
    And she kicks you down in her snow-white pumps
    And just remember, it was me who found the light
    Can I, can I, can I?
    Shit! Shit!
    Yah, yah, yah, yah, yah
    Shit! Shit!
    East is east and west is west
    And mine was you and mine was the best
    And you are east and west is west
    And mine was you and mine was
    Mine was gold, Mrs. Jones
    Breathe
    I really, don't ask me again
    Don't ever talk to me like that again
