I've been wanting to post this song for a while as it is my all time
favorite Soundgarden song, but I've kept on making corrections to this file.
But here's what I've ended up with:

Riff 1:|---------------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------0-------------||---------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------4h5tr~~~~-||-0------12------10------7------5------4------3-----------------|
Trill the last notes.
Riff 2|---------------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------------||-----------11--------9-------6------4--------------------------||-0------12----12--10---10--7---7--5---5--4------3------2br-----|
Riff 3|----------------------------------------------------------||----------------------------------------------------------||----------------------------------------------------------||----------------------------------------------------------||--------11-11-11-11-11-11---9--9--9--9--9--9--5-5-5-5-5-5-||-0------12-12-12-12-12-12--10-10-10-10-10-10--7-7-7-7-7-7-|
Riff 4 Fill 1|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0-| |----------||-/5-5-5-5-5-5-3-5-3-5-3-5---3-5---3-5---3-5---3-5-| |-/9--(9)\-||--------------------------4-----4-----4-----4-----| |----------||--------------------------------------------------| |----------||--------------------------------------------------| |----------||--------------------------------------------------| |----------|
Solos: The solos are improvised and relatively easy considering most SG solos. It takes place mostly on the 12 frets and 9 frets around the E minor pentatonic scale with maybe a G# or something added here or there. I don't know most of it but here's a part at the end of one solo:
|--------------------------| |--------------------------||-7/9-9-9\7/9-9-9\7-etc...-||--------------------------||--------------------------||--------------------------|
Riff 1 is the intro and verse part and is played at the begining of the first two verses. Riff 2 is played during the verses after Riff 1 is played and sometimes after Riff 3 is played. Riff 3 is played at the beginning of the third verse. Riff 4 is played after every solo and played 2 times after the second solo. Fill 1 is played after Riff 4 the first two times. The solos are played after each verse for 8 bars each and Chris sings over the last one. The bass plays Riff 1 for the verses and 'solos' during the solos.
End on this:|--------------|||--------------|||--------------|||--------------|||--------------|||-0------------||
Then quickly pick up a harmonica and play a bar or two and the song is over. :) Lyrics: So he's afraid he'll suffer his father's fate Two sets of silverware, cups and plates Two burning hands and bleeding hearts Don't feel it's not too late to start Only the photographs on your wall Are chained and down your hall Reminding you of all the days When you collected hell to pay Well hell to pay I said it's not too late Not it's not too late Incessant mace Oh God I can see it, you know it's incessant mace Magazine stacks and broken backs Are what you get for piling stacks Beneath your treasure chest You wonder why you're under stress No it's not too late Incessant mace Oh God I can see it, you know it's incessant mace Mace!!! Mace!!! Mace!!!
