Smashing Pumpkins - The End Is The Beginning Is The End tab version 2

Chords:
Transpose
I figured this out so it could be played solo on an acoustic guitar.  The actual 
recording is tuned down a half step to Eb (as was the style at the time) but it 
can be played in standard tuning just as well.

INTRO:

(At it's most basic, it's these 2 chords...)

Gm    Em    Gm    Em    Gm    Em

(Then this figure just before getting into the verse...or a Gm chord works fine too)e|--------------------------|B|--------------------------|G|--------------------------|D|--------------------------|A|----0--1--2--1--0---------|E|-3-----------------3--0---|
VERSE: Here's an easy way to jump from Gm to Bb. You can let the high e string ring for all the chords as an option; gives it more of that doom sound.

Em Gm Bb The sewers belch me up Em Gm Bb The heavens spit me out Em Gm Bb Em From ethers tragic, I am born again Gm Em And now I'm with you now Gm Em Inside your world of wow Gm Em To move in desires made of C6 Fmaj7b5 Em deadly pretends... Till the C6 Fmaj7b5 Em end times begin (Ok, those were some weird chords, so I'll tab them out...)

But here's the tab...)
