Words & Music:

Kurt Cobain


This is in the 30th Anniversary issue (2009)  of Guitar World.  That provided the info that this is actually performed in E (I've changed my chords).  But, the guitars are tuned down one step to D (D G C F A D), which is why it sounds like they are playing in D and why so many fantabs are in the key of D instead of E.


[basic riff is:]

E5   G#5   C#5   A5   C5   D5   B5   D5


E5 G#5    C#5    A5        C5     D5        B5       D5        E5

   I'm so happy 'cause today I found my friends, they're in my head.

G#5    C#5    A5      C5          D5      B5 D5     E5  [etc.]

I'm so ugly, that's okay, 'cause so are you, broken mirrors.

Sunday morning, 'cause everyday for all I care and I'm not scared.

Light my candles in a daze 'cause I found God.


PRE-CHORUS [over riff 3x]:

Yeah-------!  Yeah-------! Yeah-------!  Yeah-------!


I'm so lonely, that's ok, I shaved my head and I'm not sad.

And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard and I'm not sure.

I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there and I dont' care.

I'm so horny, that's ok, my will is good.




CHORUS [2x]:

A5 C5      A5   C5    G5     A5   C5         A5      C5

I like it, I'm not gonna crack.  I miss you, I'm not gonna crack

A5 C5       A5      C5

I love you, I'm not gonna crack.

A5  C5          A5      C5    G5  [2nd x: A5  C5  A5  C5  D5  B5 to riff]

I-- killed you, I'm not gonna crack.
