this is a really fucking good song written by Gavin Rossdale. A lot of
you people had requested it so I did my best at this song.  The riff to
this song is really cool.  It really isn't that hard so here it is

E |--10--10--10-10-10-10-10--10--|

G |--11--11--11-11-11-11-11--11--|   you will play part A and part B
D |--12--12--12-12-12-12-12--12--|   a lot more times)
A |--12--12--12-12-12-12-12--12--|
E |--10--10--10-10-10-10-10--10--|
the chords are right, just work with the strumming pattern

then, at about 3.10 minutes into the song an E1-G-A progression is played
then, at about 3.42 minutes into the song an A-G-E1 progression is played

then a solo comes, you could use the A-minor penatonic scale in the 5th
position for the "psuedo solo"

E |----------------------5-8--|
B |------------------5-8------|
G |--------------5-7----------|
D |----------5-7--------------|
A |------5-7------------------|
E |--5-8----------------------|


hush child - lay your sweet lips on me
this greed - bigger than you and me
will you come again
tongue tied and visceral third degree
feel warm - center of gravity
wash us all away
body never lies
will you come again
will we stay friends
oh you paralyze
there are times when i wish
that i was you
thick skinned - cities you drive me though
better than me - you're a woman
seven days and my system is free again
we rise - lose it on oblivion
falling away - sorry for the way
your child is on fire
lick these my ruby lips
drop your protein pills 
better just to lose yourself
we kiss we kiss we kiss
pretty words could never say
will you come again

any questions, requests, comments, suggestions, corrections, or anything
else (like thank you notes), just e-mail me ( 

this tab might seem kind of cryptic because of how confusing i made it,
but it really isn't, all the chords and parts are correct, just find out
where they go and how many times to play them, have fun

note: don't forget, when you download it, print it out in NOTEPAD in 
windows or else it will come out messed up

message: when i do this tab, it is because i am trying to help people out
and i enjoy it, i don't claim to be correct on anything, so i would 
aprecciate it that if i got something wrong, don't be a prick about it,
just e-mail me and i will happily fix it, like i fix my version of little 
things (which i tabbed out a step higher that it is really played)
thank you and enjoy the tab

oh.....i also figured out the beginning of monkey!  i listened to a live
bush album and i figured it out from there, i will work on the rest 
and post it later
