                           Today - Smashing Pumpkins
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

TUNING: STANDARD

Yes, it's in standard. The majority of the songs on Siamese Dream
are (excluding Hummer, of course). You could also play it one
step down if you really wanted to, though.

INTRO:
e|-11----13----11----15p11----|
B|----11----11----11-------11-|
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|

E|----------------------------|

One guitar does this for the entire intro (12 bars?). The first 4 times, clean,
the next 8(?) times, distorted

After the first four times, another guitar plays this:
e|---------------------------------|

Today is the greatest day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow, tomorrow's much too long
I'll burn my eyes out
Before I get out

I wanted more
Than life could ever grant
Bored by the chore
Of saving face

Today is the greatest day I've ever known
Can't wait for tomorrow, I might not have that long
I'll tear my heart out
Before I get out

Pink ribbon scars that never forget
I tried so hard to cleanse these regrets
My angel wings were bruised and restrained
My belly stings

Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day

I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you

Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known
