Black Hole Sun

Soundgarden

Note:  Dropped D tuning

 

          Em               Gm/E    F                        Em

In my eyes, indisposed, in disguise as no one knows,

                    Eb               Gadd2              Dmsus4    Fm6

Hides the face, lies the snake, the sun in my disgrace

Boiling heat, summer stench, 'neath the black the sky looks dead.

Call my name through the cream and I'll hear you, scream again.

 

CHORUS:

                   Eb               D7         G        G7       Bb

Black hole sun, won't you come and wash away the rain

                   Eb               D7                        Cm

Black hole sun, won't you come, won't you come?

                   D7

Won't you come?

 

Stuttering, cold and damp, steal the warm wind, tired friend

Times are gone for honest men and sometimes far too long for snakes

In my shoes a walking sleep and my youth I pray to keep

Heaven send hell away, no one sings like you anymore

 

CHORUS:

 

                   Fdim  Cm     Bb      Dm

Won't you come?

                   Fdim  Cm     Bb      Dm

Won't you come?

                   Fdim  Cm     Bb      Dm

Won't you come?

 

Hang my head, drown my fear, ‘til you all just disappear …
