Glycerine

Bush


This is a simplified version of the song that I created for a young student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.

Verse 1:

1                              8               

   It must be your skin I'm sinking

   10                   6                     
in must be for real ‘cuz now I can

      1                       8                      

feel, and I didn't mind it's not my

     10                   6                     

kind, It’s not my time to wonder

      1                                 8                                 

why.  Everything gone white and everything's

     10                     6                     

gray, Now you're here now you're

        1                        8

awayI don't want this--remember

     10                     6

   I'm never alone, I'm alone all the

    1                            8

lie?  We live in a wheel where everyone

       10                       6

steals, but when we rise it's like strawberry

         1                             8

fields.  If I treated you bad, you bruise my

      10                                6

face.  Couldn't love you more, you got a beautiful

1                8

taste.            Don't let the

 

10            6

10                       6

plain.  That's just fine, that's just one of my

names.                Don't let the

10            6
