    Nothingman

    Pearl Jam


    Capo 1

     

    Strum: D   D U D U

           1 + 2 + 3 +

     

    Intro (x2):  / E - - / - - - / - - - / C#m7 - - /

                        / Bsus4 - - / C#m7 - -  / Asus2 - - / - - - /

     

    Verse:

     

      E (3)            C#m7 Bsus4         C#m7    Asus2 (2)

    Once divided,          nothing left to     subtract

      E (3)                              C#m7 Bsus4   C#m7    Asus2 (2)

    Some words when spoken           can't be taken     back

      E (3)                C#m7   Bsus4       C#m7      Asus2 (2)

    Walks on his own   with thoughts he can't help thinking

      E (3)             C#m7                  Bsus4    C#m7    Asus2 (3)   C#m7

    Future's above,          but in the past he's slow and sinking

     

      Asus2 (3)                     Bsus4        

    Caught a bolt of lightning, cursed the

     Asus2 (3)       Asus2/G#   Asus2 (3)  Bsus4

    day he let it go

     

    Chorus:

     E (3)           Asus2  Bsus4 (4)

    Nothingman,           nothingman

    E (3)                    Asus2           Bsus4 (4, hold first time)

    Isn't it something?       Nothingman

     

    2nd Verse:

      E (3)                   C#m7       Bsus4  C#m7  Asus2 (2)

    She once believed   in every story he had to tell

      E (3)                       C#m7  Bsus4   C#m7  Asus2 (2)

    One day she stiffened,          took the other   side

    E (3)             C#m7           Bsus4        C#m7         Asus2 (2)

    Empty stares    from each corner of a shared prison cell

    E (3)                   C#m7    Bsus4  C#m7    Asus2 (3)   C#m7

    One just escapes,    one's left     inside the well

     

            Asus2 (3)       Bsus4                   

    And he who forgets    will be

      Asus2 (3)                 Asus2/G#   Asus2 (3)  Bsus4

    destined to remember

     

    Chorus

     

    Bridge:

    C#m7 (3)            Asus2   Bsus4 (3)            Asus2

       Oh, she don't want him     Oh, she won't feed him

    C#m7 (3)       Asus2   Bsus4 (3)    C#m7

         after he's flown   away

         Asus2 (7)                                Asus2/G#  

    Oh, into the sun, yeah into the sun                   

    Asus2 (3)                       Bsus4

          Burn, burn, burn, burn

     

    Chorus

     

    E (3)           Asus2  Bsus4 (4)

    Nothingman,           nothingman

      E (3)                            Asus2   Bsus4 (hold 4)

    Coulda been something, nothingman

     

    / E - - / - - - / - - - / Asus2 - - /  x3

     

    End on E
