________________
/ Soundgarden / The inspiration for this song came from the weird musician called
/ Spoonman / Artis the Spoonman, which Cornell met once. He literally played with
/ Superunknown / spoons on strings. The background ticking in the Interlude is actually
/_______________/ spoons! But I really don't what this song is about deeper than that.


Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E)
Gtr I - Distorted (lead, left speaker)
Gtr II - Distorted (lead, right speaker)
Gtr III - Lightly Overdriven (pre-solo)
Gtr IV - Distorted (solo)

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can
Spoonman

Speak the rhythm on your own
Speak the rhythm all alone
Spoonman

Spoonman
Come together with your hands - save me
I'm together with your plan - save me

All my friends are indians
All my friends are brown and red
Spoonman

All my friends are skeletons
They beat the rhythm with their bones
Spoonman

Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, we like it all
