Nirvana tabs for Vaseline cover songs

Guitar tabs with lyrics

I've decided to list all three of the Vaseline cover songs Nirvana has done,
since they're all real short (Molly's Lips, Son of a Gun, and Jesus Wants Me
For A chord diagramA augmentedA Sunbeam).  (a chord notation is at the end of this document for the
musically retarded)

*Molly's Lips*
This is just two chords throughout.  Just A chord diagramG5G5  C5.  That's it!

*Son of a Gun*
The intro and verse is A chord diagramA5A5  A chord diagramE5E5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramE5E5

Chorus: A chord diagramG5G5  A chord diagramC5C5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramC5C5
The interlude is just basically  A chord diagramG5G5  A chord diagramD5D5  a couple of times, then  A chord diagramA5A5  E5* a
couple of times, then back to  A chord diagramG5G5  A chord diagramD5D5  four times.

*Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam*

Verse: A chord diagramE5E5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramA5A5

Chorus:  A chord diagramE5E5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramE5E5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramE5E5  A chord diagramD5D5  A chord diagramA5A5
The solo (and the accordion part in the Unplugged version, I think) goes like
this:

-----------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------9-7---------------------------------------|
--6-7-8-9--9-9------9-7--7-7--9-7-6---------7-6------------|
--------------------------------------7--7-7------7--7-7---|
-----------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|

In live versions, the first and third verse are clean, while the choruses,
second verse, and solo are distorted.  But both live electric versions and
the acoustic Unplugged version are played this way.  On Unplugged it's tuned
down 1/2 step and for the outro the above tab is played once and then this is
played:

---------------------------------------------|
-----------------9-7-------------7--9--10----|
--6-7-8-9--9-9------9-7--7-7--9--------------|
---------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|
