I think I've got down all the chords to this Green Day song.  Actually,
I don't even know the name of the song, I've just heard it on the radio
and on MTV and thought it was pretty cool.  I'd appreciate it if someone
who has the album could finish up the rest and fill in the lyrics!

  E: x79997
  B: 799877
C#m: x46654
 G#: 466544
  A: 577655

Verse:

E               B
Do you have the time
C#m          G#
To listen to me whine
A                E                 B
About nothin' and everything all at once
E           B
I am one of those
C#m        G#
melodramatic fools
A         E                       B
moronic ... ??? ... no doubt about it


Chorus:

A           B               E
Sometimes I give myself the creeps (???)
A            B                    E
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
A                   B
It all keeps adding up
E                    C#m
I think I'm cracking up
A             B            E B C#m A (<-- repeat these 4 chords a few times)   
Am I just paranoid, or ... ???

(I think there's a bridge part too that uses the chords in this last line
of the chorus)

: Verse:

: Do you have the time

NO!!! You have to tune a half step down to play it like this. The chords
should all be a half step down from what is listed in the crd.
The last line in the chorus is 
"I'm just stoned". However, I'm very unsure of what is posted for the
"I think I'm cracking up" line. My band plays it like
  Eb        F        G   <--- All Power chords   
I think I'm cracking up

however, I know this doesn't sound right. Anyone have any other suggestions?
Here's the outro to Basketcase:
Eb  Ab   Eb    C Ab C   Ab Eb Bb <---- All power chords
You can also play it like this if the above is too fast for you:
Eb   C   Ab Eb Bb

-Someone posted this song before I could, but there seems to be some
contreversy about it.  I hope this settles it!

This is from Green Day's album DOOKIE
BASKET_CASE

VERSE:
Eb              Bb    C               G
Do you have the time, to listen to me whine
G#                Eb                Bb
About nothing and everything all at once
Eb          Bb     C             G
I am one of those, mellodramatic fools 
G#                   Eb             Bb
Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it.

CHORUS:
G#          Bb              Eb
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
G#           Bb                   Eb
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
G#           Bb         Eb      C#           C
It all keeps adding up, I think I'm cracking up
G#        Bb                 Eb
Am I just paranoid? I'm just stoned.

Bridge?:
Eb    Bb    C    Bb   Eb   Bb    C   Bb

Verse:

I went to a shrink to analyze my dreams
She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
I went to a whore, she said my life's a bore
And quit my whining cause it's bringing her down.


_____________________________________________________________________________
I think the chorus is screwed up, but you'll have to forgive me, it's 



E               B
do you have the time

   C#min        G#
to listen to me whine

 A                E
about ?everything¬hing?

       B
all at once

E           B
i am one of those

  C#min      G#
melodramatic fools
   A            E
neurotic to the core
               B
no doubt about it

A           B               E
sometimes i give myself the creeps
A            B                    E
sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
   A                B
it all keeps adding up
  E         B        C#min
i think i'm cracking up
   A          B              E B C#min B x4(?)
am i just paranoid, or am i (?)

  E         B
i went to a whore etc.....

etc.......................

E B C#min B x4
    A            B
you ask me to control
(nada)
so you better hold?
E B C#min G# A E-lo E-HI bar B x2?
on?

A           B               E
sometimes i give myself the creeps (etc...)


outro

Esus4 Esus4/C# A E B x4

the guitar player pedals on a E to Esus4 figure while the bass player goes thru
the E-C#-A-E-B changes. for A satisfying armchair axe-warrior experience you 
might try...
x7999x E
x79910x Esus4
9x999x E/C#
9x9910x Esus4/C#

the band either tunes down to Eb or tunes to D and then speeds up the tape to 
make it more awesome. Dookie seems to be somewhere around Eb when you play it.
so while you can't play along with the record with this fingering, this is 
probably the way they finger it.

the finale is...  A    E    B




Band:Green Day


   This song is very simple.    It goes like:
   
   Verse:
   Riff 1:  E-B-C#m-G#m-A-E-B     Play that A few times
                    
   Chorus:      
   Riff 2:  A-B-E        Play that 3 or 4 times and on the last time 
play this:
  
    Riff3:E~ D~ C#m~ A-B          Play that once and then play:


    Riff4:E-B-C#m                 Play that twice and then play Riff1 
Again and then Riff2,Riff3,Riff4 four times,and then play this:

   Riff5:A-B           Play that at the "Grasping to control...so I 
better hold on" part,then play

  Riff6:E-C#m-A-B-E        Repeat that and then play this at the end:

  Riff7:A-E-B~A-E-B~~

So the whole song goes:

Riff1 x2

Riff2 x3 or 4

Riff3 x1

Riff4 x2

Riff1 x2

Riff2 x3 or 4

Riff3 x1

Riff4 x4

Riff5 x1

Riff6 x2

Riff7 x2




P.S.  (I KNOW THIS TAB IS RIGHT CAUSE MY GUITAR TEACHER TAUGHT ME HOW TO 
PLAY IT AND HE IS BETTER THAN JIMI HENDRIX!)
