Return of the Rat
as performed by Nirvana
from the compilation 
"Eight Songs for Greg Sage & the Wipers"
written by Greg Sage & the Wipers
tabbed by  Lee Harvey Oswald 

I don't think a decent tab  of this song exists so I've written one.
It's a simple song to play and fun, too.  One of my favorite Nirvana 
ditties.  Here goes nothin'.

Standard tuning 

[verse 1] A5 C5 G5e|----------------------------------|B|---------------------------------o|G|----------5-5-5-X-----------------|D|--7-7-7-X-5-5-5-X-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---|A|--7-7-7-X-3-3-3-X-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--o|E|--5-5-5-X---------3-3-3-3-3-3-3---| You better watch out You better beware They're coming from all sides of the country You better beware

[the slide from Em to A5 is a sort of bridge from chorus to verse Just roll right into the verse without slowing down]

[chorus] same as before [solo]

Repeat the first verse [an old Nirvana trick] and that's it. I hope you have found this usefull. If you come across any glaring errors mail me and I'll fix them. I don't have my guitar right here so the solo may be fucked. If you have difficulties mail me and I'll get you a proper copy.

It's not played on the 2nd and 3rd strings but on the 3rd and 4th strings. Everything else is ok.
