Jefferson Airplane - The Other Side Of This Life tab

This song has no other tabs on the internet so I took to transcribing it myself. This
is a cover of a Fred Neil classic, featured on BLESS ITS POINTED LITTLE HEAD (1968) LIVE
THE FILLMORE (2003 release) WOODSTOCK (2009 release) and GIMME SHELTER (1970). This tab 
accurately matches the version performed on GIMME SHELTER. The band's many versions of
song are all very different, but with the same structure and chords.

1 Would you like to know a secret just between you and me
2 Well my whole world’s in an uproar my whole world’s upside down
3 Well I dunno what I'm doin half the time I dunno where I'll go
4 Well I think I'll go down to Nashville down in Tennessee

1 I don’t know where I'm goin next I dunno who I'm gonna be
2 I dunno where I'm goin next but I'm always bumming around
3 I think ill get me a sailing boat and go for Mexico
4 This ten cent life I’ve been leadin is gonna be the death of me


Chorus:

     G          C                  D              D
But that's the other side of this life I've been leading
     G          C             D
But that's the other side of this life
