Seattle Grunge Rock Blues chords by Todd Snider

Todd Snider Chords

Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues
By Todd Snider

 G        C
Hey, hey, my, my 
 G                  D
Rock n' roll will never die 
      G                  C
Just hang your hair down in your eyes 
        G        D       G
You'll make a million dollars 

 G                               C
Well, I was in this band goin' nowhere fast 
    G                     D
We sent out demos but everybody passed 
    G                  C
So one day we finally took the plunge 
       G                 D          G
Moved out to Seattle to play some grunge 
Washington state that is... 
            G              D    G
Space needle, Eddie Vedder  

        G              C
Now to fit in fast we wear flannel shirts 
    G                 D
We turn our amps up until it hurts 
           G                        C
We've got bad attitudes and what's more 
          G                       D
When we play we stare straight down at the floor 
  G              C
Woweee! Pretty scary 
How pensive 
       D         G
How totally alternative 

        G                C
Now to fit in on the Seattle scene 
              G                         D  
You've got to do something they ain't never seen 
      G             C  
So thinkin' up a gimmick one day 
      G                     D                        G
We decided to be the only band that wouldn't play a note 
             C             D
Under any circumstances 


Music's original alternative 
Root's grunge 

           G                           C
Well we spread the word through the underground 
     G                         D
That we were the hottest new thing in town 
 G                          C
The record guy came out to see us one day 
     G               D           
And just like always we didn't play 
It knocked him out 

He said he loved our work 
He said he loved our work, but he wasn't sure if he could 
                               G   C
Sell a record with nothing on it 
I said tell 'em we're from Seattle 
He advanced us two and half million dollars 

 G        C
Hey, hey, my, my 
 G                  D
Rock n' roll will never die 
 G                  C
Hang your hair down in your eyes 
        G        D       G
You'll make a million dollars 

           G                      C 
Well they made us do a video but that wasn't tough 
           G                        D
'Cause we just filmed ourselves smashing stuff 
      G                     C
It's kind of weird 'cause there was no music 
     G                D 
But MTV said they'd love to use it 
     G                   C
The kids went wild, the kids went nuts 
Rolling Stone gave us a five star review 
Said we played with guts 

         G               C  
We're scoring chicks, taking drugs 
  G                        D                               
Then we got asked to play MTV Unplugged 
You should have seen it 


We went right out there and refused to do acoustical versions of
                                                                      G C D G  
the electrical songs that we had refused to record in the first place 
                          G  C  D  G
Then we smashed our sh*t 

         G                      C
Well we blew 'em away at the Grammys show 
      G                     D
By refusing to play and refusing to go 
          G                               C
And then just when we thought fame would last forever 
  G                               D
Along come this band that wasn't even together 

Now that's alternative 

Now that's alternative to alternative 
                                G  C  G  D  G  C  GDG
I feel stupid...and contagious 

           G                   C
Well our band got dropped and that ain't funny 
              G                              D
'Cause we're all hooked on drugs but we're outta money 
         G                C 
So the other day I called up the band 
        G               D
I said boys I've taken all I can 
  G                      C
Shave off your goatees, pack the van 
 D                            G
We're going back to Athens
