In His Hands AKA Token Eastern Song.

* * * ATTENTION * * *

I recommend that before you go away and use this tab, load it into
either Notepad (in Windows) or Edit (in DOS) as this removes the
crappy Windows font from the text making it easier to read the tab as
all the symbols should be inline with the tab.

This song's proper name is probably Token Eastern Song but the
version I've got has noticably different lyrics to TES so I've
decided to go with its name from Outcesticide III

(In His Hands comes from the second line of the chorus fact fans)

The version of Token Eastern Song I've got from Outcesticide II has the same
music as In His Hands version but the lyrics are different. I think
it was recorded on one of the occasions when Kurt decided to sing in
his take—the—p*ss style.
(Similar to the Top Of The Pops version of Smells Like Teen Spirit.)
The lyrics on this occasion are VERY hard to distiguish so I'm
guessing that they are normally the same.

There have been several tabs of this track but the ones I've seen are
usually incomplete an inaccurate. (No disrespect to everyone out
there.)
It was possible to sort them but to make life easier to the
inexperienced out there, I've decided to collate all the tabs and
combine them with my own to get the most accurate tab possible. (I
think!)
Anyway, here is the bass tab:
(For the guitar tab, just stick on the good 'ole power chords)

Verse
—————

Wouldn't want to thankyou, even if her son
Being it felt so dated, even if the heart
Taking Medication, 'til the stomach's full
Wouldn't what to thankyou, coming in my home


Chorus
——————

Singing softly, it's in his hands

She is troubled {and don't understand — 1,3
{with that again — 2

I've seen the light and entered a new

{She is always hanging 'bout you — 1,2
{He is always love you too — 3

I'd rather be there, over the hill

Making a failure, love you too

Any corrections to the lyrics would be gratefully received.
