Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Simple song but first tab so go easy, constructive criticism appreciated, childish abuse 
so

Standard tuning, capo on 4th, (or if you don't have one just cut a chopstick in half and 
it down to the fretboard with a shoestring or something)

Just experiment with different strumming patterns, I tried a cheeky
'D-D-U-U-D-U' and it seemed to was listenable. Just make sure you hit the high strings 
the upstrokes.

For an easy little intro on the one string, see the tab below (s=slide, repeat 3 or 4 
and in between verses).

Alternatively, just mess around with E and Am for an intro.

(Nothing played here) E
We passed upon the stair
                     Am
We spoke of was and when
                    E
Although I wasn't there
                      C
He said I was his friend

   C                  G
Which came as a sur-prise
                 E
I spoke into his eyes
                 Am
I thought you died alone
                   G
A long long time a-go

   C
Oh no, not me               (mess around with high e string here if you like)
    F              C
We never lost con-trol
G               C
You're face to face
          F               E
With The Man Who Sold The World                (repeat Intro here)

                       E
I laughed and shook his hand
                      Am
And made my way back home
                        E
I searched for form and land
                       C
For years and years I roamed

                    G
I gazed a gazeless stare
                   E
At all the millions here
                   Am
I must have died a-lone
                    G
A long, long time a-go

     C
Who knows?
   C
Not me
    F             C
We never lost con-trol
        G       C
You're face to face
         F                E
With the Man who Sold the World     Am
