It seems like their using a slide, so I tried to tab it out so that it's
possible to play with a slide on your pinky, without detuning the guitar


INTRO(palm muted except on the last two notes) Repeat four times e-----------------------------------------------------------------------| B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|Fig.1 G-------------------------------7-----------------------------7----7\---| D--------------------------7----7-----------------------------7----7\---| A-----------3---------5--------------------3--------3----5----5----5\---| E---4---4--------4--------------------4---------4-----------------------|
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------| B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|Fig.2 G-----------------------------------------------------------------------| D-------2----------------------------2----------------------------------| A---4-------4---0----------------4-------4---0-------0------------------| E-------------------4---3---2--------------------4----------------------|
I can't seem to find my way... (this is done with the slide) e---4--4----2\1/2\1/2-------4--4----------------------------------------| B---4--4----2\1/2\1/2-------4--4----------------------------------------|Fig.3 G------------------------------------11\--------------------------------| D------------------------------------11\--------------------------------| A-----------------------------------------------------------------------| E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Repeat four times, play Fig.2, and do the same thing for the next verse. Then it plays the intro again.
Late at night... (play as power chord if you want it to sound fuller) e-----------------------------------------------------------------------| B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|Fig.4 G-----------------------------------------------------------------------| D-----------------------------------------------------------------------| A--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--2--0--0--0--0--0--0--2--0-----------------------| E--------------------------------------------------4--4--4--4--4--4--4--|
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------| B-----------------------------------------------------------------------| G-----------------------------------------------------------------------| D-----------------------------------------------------------------------| A--4--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-----------------------4--5--5--5--5--5--5--| E-----------------------------4--4--4--4--4--4--4-----------------------|
Alley way,... (the bassline repeats, and this is the slide) e--4/9-----9\5-----4/5\4------4/10-----10\4-----4/10--------------------| B--4/9-----9\5-----4/5\4------4/10-----10\4-----4/10--------------------|Fig.5 G-----------------------------------------------------------------------| D-----------------------------------------------------------------------| A-----------------------------------------------------------------------| E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Intro plays again under "I'll get you"
I was born inside a cage...(I've got the bass and guitar tabbed together, and you have to take off the slide for this part.) e-----------------------------4--------5-------4--------5---------------| B-----------------------------5--------5-------5--------5---------------|Fig.6 G-----------------------------6--------6-------6--------6---------------| D-----------------------------6--------7-------6--------7---------------| A--------------0--2--4--2--4--4--7-----7--4----4--7-----7---------------| E--4--4--4--4-----------------------5--5-------------5--5---------------|
Never do anything but rage... e-----------------------------4--------5-------4--------5---------------| B-----------------------------5--------5-------5--------5---------------|Fig.7 G-----------------------------6--------6-------6--------6---------------| D-----------------------------6--------7-------6--------7---------------| A--2--2--2--2--2--0-----2--4--4--7-----7--4----4--7-----7---------------| E--------------------4--------------5--5-------------5--5---------------|
Although I try so hard...Repeat Fig.6
Love is something... e--------------------------------------4--------2-------4--------2---| B--------------------------------------4--------3-------4--------3---|Fig.8 G--------------------------------------5--------2-------5--------2---| D--------------------------------------6--1--0--0-------6--1--0--0---| A--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0-----------6----------------6------------| E-----------------------------4--2--4--4-----------4----4------------|
I take what I need... e--------------------------------------------------------------------| B--------------------------------------------------------------------|Fig.9 G--------------------------------------------------------------------| D--------------------------------------2-----------------2-----------| A--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0-----2--4-----4--0--------4-----2--0---0-| E-----------------------------4-----------------4-3-2------------4---|
Then it goes back to the Intro, and the rest of the song follows the same patterns. I'm So Bad Can't seem to find my way Someone tell me what to say Where am I going Where did I come from I don't know, I don't know Almost got to paradise But the smoke always gets in my eyes Everything I do is wrong I'm so bad . . . so bad Late at night, they're asleep I'm awake, get the urge Hit the street, jump a curb Alleyway, dark and wet Set the trap, I forget Who I am. But I know I'll get you . . I'm so bad I was born inside a cage Never knew anything but rage Although I tried so hard to adjust Love is something I don't understand Take what I need and I get what I can OH . . . I'm so bad I wake up in the morning so tired Dreamt that I was walking through fire The fire didn't hurt me though We're old friends Can't seem to find my way Someone tell me what to say Everything I do is wrong Pass the time, lie in bed Hotel room, T.V. set Got to move, might be dead Catch a ride, I'm awake Join a crowd, hidden blade Buy a drink, you better pray I don't get you I'm so bad . . . so bad
