A couple of articles back someone requested "Black" by Pearl Jam, so here's
how I play it.  I make no statements about its correctness.
Chord              E A D G B E

E                  0 2 2 1 0 0
A                  0 0 2 2 2 0
Asus4              0 0 2 2 3 0
Em                 0 2 2 0 0 0 
C                  x 3 2 0 1 0 
D                  x x 0 2 3 2

(N.B. Sorry if the timing on the chords is wrong, but the singer makes 
it kind of hard with his timing)

Pearl Jam

E               A     Asus4 A
Sheets of empty canvas
          E                   A Asus4 A
untouched sheets of clay
E                 A      
They spread out before me
as her body once did

E           A     Asus4 A
All five horizons, 
          E             A                     Asus4 A
revolved around her soul (as the earth to the sun)
E             A                  
Now the air I tasted and breathed,
has taken a turn    (Not sure about this line)

     C                                   Em
Oooh all I know I taught her was... everything
     C                               Em
Oooh all I know she gave all... that she wore
And my bitter hands
Shake beneath the clouds
Of what was everything
        D                      C
All the pictures have all been washed in black
Tatooed everything.

  E      A           Asus4 A
I take a walk outside
       E               A            Asus4 A
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
E                A        
I can feel their laughter
So what can I say

    C                                          Em
Ooh all my twisted thoughts they spin round my head (I'm spinnin')
         C                              Em
Oooh I'm spinning how quick the sun can drop awayayayayay
And my bitter hands
????  on broken glass     (can't get this word)
of what was everything
       D                      C
All my pictures have all been washed in black
Tatooed everything
All my love gone bad
turned my world to black
tatooed all I see
All that I am
All that I'll beeeeee    yeaahheah

I know some day you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a sun, 
   Em                  D              C
In somebody elses sky, whyhy, whyhy   whyhy
can't it be, can't it be in mine.
