HI! there, my name id Daniel and I've wrote some uncreditted tabs but from
now on I'll put it, this tab includes every song in the nevermind album
except " endless, nameless ", all songs were tabbed by me except
" on a plain " tabbed by jesse, and with a little help of mine.
Hope you enjoy it and if there are any corrections or if you have
any doubts e-mail my friend at "[email protected]" (I don't have a modem).
Well I've got nothing else to say, except that:
Kurt wasn't a hero, he was a legend; and as they say:
heroes are remembered, but legends never die

don't have one, but another friend has another guitar one can play
the guitar part and the other the bass part, which is only this
during verse, and pre-chorus, and solo I guess

I'm so lonely but that's okay I shaved my head.
And I'm not sad.
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard.
But I'm not sure.
I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there.
But I don't care.
I'm so horny, but that's okay. My will is good.
Repeat chorus

"I haven't felt the excitement for so
many years, I felt guilt for so many
years. I felt guilty beyond words
about these things. When we are
backstage and the lights go out and
the manic roar of the crowd begins,
it doesn't affect me. The fact is,
I can't fool you, any one of you.
It simply isn't fair to you or to me.
The worst crime I can think of would

pretending as I were having 100% fun"

Lyrics
I'll start this off
Without any words
I got so high that
I scratched 'til I bled
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
The finest day
That I ever had
Was when I learned
To cry on command
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
My mother died
Every night
It's safe to say
Don't quote me on that
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
The black sheep got
Blackmailed again
Forgot to put
On the zip code
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain
Somewhere I have heard this before
In a dream my mem'ry has stored
As defense I'm neutered and spayed
What the hell am I trying to say?
It is now time
To make it unclear
To write off lines
That don't make a sense
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
One more special
Message to go
And then I'm done
And I can go home
I love myself
Better than you
I know it's wrong
So what should I do?
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
I'm on a plain

Underneath the bridge
the trap has sprung a leak
and the animals I've trapped
have all become my pets
and I'm living of off grass
and the dripings from the ceiling
but it's okay to eat fish,
'cause they haven't any feelings (use chorus bar in this line instead of
verse bar)

Dad hates mom, mom hates dad
It simply makes you want to be so sad"
