No Excuses
Jerry Cantrell

Alice in Chains
I got Unplugged from Columbia House about 4 days ago and
this is the first song from it.  This was the first Alice
In Chains song I ever heard.  I don't believe AIC plays
this with a capo, but I'm combining the guitar and bass
lines and it's easier to do with the capo.  Enjoy!


Capo 1st INTRO (after drums): Note that the parts marked "bass" are played by the bass; the guitar continues to strum A over then. I included them because they make it sound better.

INTRO (play 2x) It's alright there comes a time Got no patience to search for peace of mind Layin' low wanna take it slow No more hiding or disguising truths I've sold
CHORUS F G Everyday it's something A Hits me all so cold F G Find me sittin' by myself Dsus2 No excuses then I know play intro tab 2x
It's okay had a bad day Hands are bruised from breaking rocks all day Drained and blue I bleed for you You think it's funny well you're drowning in it too
GUITAR SOLO play chorus chords
Yeah it's fine walk down the line Leave our rain a cold trade for warm sunshine You my friend I will defend And if we change well I love you anyway
CHORUS play intro tab 4x end on A
