 C12   C10   C9    C7 C5 C3 C2
Almost cut my hair
C12         C10      C9        C2 C3 C2
It happened just the other day
C12      C10    C9           C7 C5 C3 C2
It was getting kind of long
C12           C10           C9     C7 C5 C3 C2
I could have said it was in my way

       C         G6       Bb/C#    C+10 C+9 C+7 C+5
But I didn't and I wonder why
  Fmaj9                            G6
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
      Em11        D7addG C12 C10 C9    C7 C5 C3 C2
And I feel like I owe it  to someone

Must be because I had the flu for Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
It increases my paranoia
Like looking into a mirror and seeing a police car

But I'm not giving in an inch to fear
Cos I promised myself this year
I feel like I owe it to someone

When I finally get myself together
I'm gonna get down in some of that sweet summer weather

I'm going to find a space inside to laugh
Separate the wheat from the chaff
Cos I feel like I owe it, yeah
Said I feel like I owe it, yeah
You know I feel---- like I owe it yeah to someone

Notes: This is figured out from the solo live version, esp. that from the
U.N. 1989 show.  It may not be like the album verion.  There are lots of
extra frills and variations that I didn't add, but this should give the
general idea.  This is pretty rough since I'm not familiar with this
tuning.   I have found out that Tracks in the Dust and Rusty and
Blue are also in this tuning (my previous posting to Olga of Tracks in
the Dust is totally wrong) but I can't make heads or tails of either of
those songs, although I'd really like to play them.  If anyone can, let
me know!
