Resume Riff 4, but on D in place of A: D C G A C G I wish, I wish I could fly I wish, I wish I could lie(?) I will, I will try I will, I will, goodbye Song continues on D, feedback solo. Yeah, good luck. End on D This is how I play Drown, I tried to duplicate the guitar tones as close as possible by using alot of open strings, as the pumpkins do alot. Any comments would be appreciated. Other songs are coming!

- Billy has used these types of chords in other songs, so he's probably using them here too. Thanks to S.Lee for the original tabs.
