Where Did You Sleep Last Night? - As performed by Nirvana
TAB by jesse.scott@baroque.tvk.tsoft.net
 
TUNING: Down a Half-Step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
 
Chord Voicings:
 
  E5: 022x0x or 022x00 (Either is find but I think Kurt uses the first)
   A: x0222x
   G: 320022 or 320002
   B: x2444x
B/F#: 22444x
 
Okay, the song starts off strumming the E5, then Kurt does the following
little run:
 
E-|-----------------|-
B-|-----------------|-
G-|-----------------|-
D-|--------------2--|-
A-|--------------0--|-
E-|--0--2--3--0-----|-
 
he then strums the A, G, B then B/F#.. That's the entire progression,
the little run is done only the first two times... Here's the
progression simplified:
 
E5       E5       E5    A   G
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me...
 
G       B             B/F#       E5
Tell me where did you sleep last night...
 
 
--- That's the entire song.. Here's the lyrics:
 
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
 
My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
 
Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found
 
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I will shiver the whole night through
<Sing it for me>
 
My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
 
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I will shiver the whole night through
 
My girl, my girl, where will ya go
I'm going where the cold wind blows
In the pines, the pines
The sun, the shine
I'll shiver the whole night though
