    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.

    Intro: Progression x2

     

    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

    thatI'll never forget where you're

        1         8

    at.             Don’t let the

      10          6

    days go by

     

    Chorus 1:
                  1     8 (½)   6 (½)
    Glycerine
              1     8 (½)     6 (½)
    Glycerine


    Verse 2:

    1                        8

       I'm never alone, I'm alone all the

          10                  6

    time, are you at one or do you

        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

    days go by
    1                           8

       Could have been easier on

         10              6

    you, I couldn't change though I wanted

        1                             8

    to.  Should have been easier by

           10                     6

    three, our old friend fear and you and me

     

    Chorus 2:

    1     8 (½)   6 (½)
                         Glycerine
    1     8
    (½)   6 (½)
                         Glycerine

    1          8

                   Don't let the

    10            6

    days go by,    Glycerine
    1          8

                   Don't let the

    10            6

    days go by

     

    Bridge:

    Verse Progression x3

     

    10                 6

         Bad moon white again

    10                     6 (3)

          Bad moon white again  As she falls around me

     

    Verse 3:

    1                        8

    I needed you more when we wanted us

        10                 6

    less, I could not kiss just

    1                        8

    regress.  It might just be clear simple and

    10                       6

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

              1          8

    names.                Don't let the

    10            6

    days go by

    1                           8

       Could have been easier on

         10              6

    you, you, you

    Chorus 3 (repeat 4x):

              1     8 (½)   6 (½)
    Glycerine

     

    End on 1
