Song: The Snake
Album: Show Me Your Tears
Tabbed by forum member: speedy m (Mike Velonas - mvelonas@hotmail.com)


7th Position E chord, 9th position F# throughout, except during low part.
ď->Ē means slide.

E -> F# D* A                            E
            Well Iím a snake oh yes Iím very smart

E -> F#  B                           D  
           But I was cruel without a humble start

E -> F#  D                     B                             A
           And I just lay here   when you begged and you pleaded

D  A         D               B                 D
      Now  I lay here cut in half because I am not the one you needed


E -> F# D* A                                  E
            So pretty and so tender thatís a rabbits way

E -> F#  B                          D  
           A little pessimistic but thatís okay

E -> F#  D                     B                             A
           A pig or goat well    they gonna let you be mistreated

D  A       D             B          D
      So I geuss on that note  I am not the one you needed


(single notes in small letters)

E -> F# D*  A                                  E
            So pretty and so tender thatís a rabbits way

           A little pessimistic but thatís okay

      So I geuss on that note  I am not the one you needed


finish on  E -> F#  D*  A


*I'm pretty sure on this part there is a D chord hit just before going
 to A. It's a quickee. -derek
