Warm sun, feed me up when
I'm leary, load it up
Loathing, for a change and 
I slip some, blow it away

*chorus*
Swallowed, followed, happy bout everything but my love
Swallowed, sorrowed, I'm with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet

Just wanna be myself

Hey you said you would, love to try some
hey you said you would love to die some
In the middle of a world on a fish hook,
your the wave, your the wave, your the wave

*chorus*
Swallowed, borrowed, happy bout everything and yet not
Swallowed, hollowed, sharper bout everyone but yourself
Swallowed, I know, Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet

Heres some, self-esteem enough
for words, busted me
sick head, blackened lungs and Im a 
Simple, selfish son

*chorus*
Swallowed, borrowed, happy bout everything but my love
Swallowed, I know, Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet not
Im with everyone and yet not

Gotta get away from here
Gotta get away from here
Gotta get away from here
Gotta get away from here

Miss the one that i love alot
Miss the one that i love alot
Miss the one that i love alot
I love

From: Brother Beavis 

"Swallowed" by Bush
Transcribed by Pat Robison 

>From the CD Razorblade Suitcase on Trauma Records
I assume the words and music are by Gavin Rossdale and Nigel Pulsford
(Lyrics as according to the CD)
****
I saw them play this song on SNL last week, so this is pretty close to
exactly how they do it

I haven't even seen the version of this in Guitar World, so I guess it could
be a wee bit different from that

KEY:
(V) - do a little vibrato baby!
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
* - play me muted

#cutline#

Begins with Gavin doing this little strum thing using these chords
(So you can call this the verse)

  G#maj     C#maj     C maj    F maj

|--4-------------------------------------|
|--4---------------------------------8---|
|--5------------10-------------------10--|
|--6------------11---------------10------|
|--6--*-----11------------*---8----------|
|--4--*---9---------8--8--*--------------|

Warm      sun     feed me      up . . .  

Anyhow you do that four times and then launch into the chorus
The guitar's on a whole bunch of loud distortion, POUND THEM STRINGS DAMMIT!
(This is what Gavin's playing)                                             
    
    G#maj        C maj         C#maj         A#maj
|----4-------------8-------------9-------------6------|
|----4-------------8-------------9-------------6------|
|----5-------------9-------------10------------7------|
|----6-------------10------------11------------8------|
|----6-------------10------------11------------8------|
|----4-------------8-------------9-------------6------|

  Swallowed . . . Followed . . . Heavy bout everything etc.

Meanwhile back at the fort Nigel is playing some little whiny thing over 
those chords that goes something like this...he uses at least a little
wah-wah effect

|-----------------------------------------9---9---------|
|---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-\-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-/-9---9---9-------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|

|-------------------------------|
|---9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\8-8-6-6-5---|
|-----------------------------5-|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|

Then it goes into a quiet part and I guess Gavin just hits the roots of the 
intro chords...

|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|------------------------8-8-8---|
|-4-4--4-/-9--9-9--9-8-8---------|

plays that a couple times then says uh . . . "Just wanna be myself"
stops playing while bass plays on
then he goes "He said you would love to try some" and plays

   G#maj      C#maj

|---4-4----*----4-4-4-|
|---4-4----*----6-6-6-|
|---5-5----*----6-6-6-|
|---6-6----*----6-6-6-|
|---6-6----*----4-4-4-|
|---4-4----*----------|

He says something and does that again, then goes into the chorus
After that you get a little Jimmy Page mixed with Tom Sholes riff from Nigel
BUT FIRST!  Gavin does this gradual bend with a pained look on his face

|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|----9-9-9-9-9b10-10-10-10-10-10b11-11-11-11-|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|

Then the riff...

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------8-9----9----9----------------------8-9----9----9---------|
|-/(V)6-6-6-6-6/10-----10---10---10-10--(V)6-6-6-6-6/10-----10---10---10-10-|

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

|-------------|
|-15b16-16-16-|
|-------------|
|-------------|
|-------------|
|-------------|

Oh yeah and Gavin is playing these back and forth under Nigel:

  G#maj   C Maj
|--4--------3---|
|--4--------5---|  
|--5--------5---|  
|--6--------5---|  
|--6--------3---|  
|--4------------|  

Then Nigel slides down I guess...
and the verse part starts up again, and they turn up the bass for part of it

Then it's back to the chorus!
They go to the riff part again, this time with Gavin singing over it and 
Nigel kind of mixes a part of the riff with what he plays during the normal
chorus

Then everything just kind of calms down and Gavin hits a couple notes in the
verse chords and it ends with him playing this over and over:

|--------------------|  
|--------------------|  
|--------------------|  
|--------------------|  
|--------------------|  
|-4-4-*-4-4-4-*-4-4-4|  

Unless, of course, that's the bass!!

LYRICS:
Warm sun, feed me up
I'm leery, loaded up
Loathing for a change
and I slip some boil away

Swallowed!  Followed!
I'm heavy bout everything but my love
I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and yet not

Just wanted to be myself
Hey you said you would love to try some
Hey you said you would love to die some
in the middle of a world on a fishhook
you're the wave, you're the wave, you're the wave

Swallowed!  Borrowed!
Heavy bout everything but my love
Swallowed!  Hollowed!
Sharp about everyone but yourself
Swallowed . . . oh no I'm with everyone and yet not
I'm with everyone and you're not, I'm on everyone and yet

Piss on self-esteem forward busted knee
Sick head, blackened lungs and I'm simple selfish son

Swallowed!  Followed!  Swallowed!
Oh no I'm with everyone and yet not
Got to get away from here
I miss the one that I love a lot
I miss the one that I love a lot

Lyrics
------

Warm sun, feed me up.
I'm leery, loaded up.
Loathing, for a change,
And I slip some, boil away.

Swallowed, followed.
Heavy about everything but my love.
Swallowed, sorrowed.
I'm with everyone and yet not.

Just wanted to be myself
Hey, you said you'd like to try some.
Hey, you said you'd like to die some.
In the middle of the world on a fishhook.
You're the wave.

Swallowed, borrowed.
Heavy about everything but my love.
Swallowed, hollowed.
Sharp about everyone but yourself.
Swallowed, oh no.
I'm with everyone and yet not.

Piss on, self esteem.
Foward, busted knee.
Sick head, blackened lungs.
And I'm simple, selfish son.

Swallowed, followed.
Heavy about everything but my love.
Swallowed, oh no.
I'm with everyone and yet not.
Got to get away from here,
I miss the one that I love a lot,
I love her.

These are the corrections to the song Swallowed, the other tab was quite a ways
off.  Here is my rendition.  This is my first tab.
Douse with Distortion!
Repeat a few times.

This is the next part where Gavin sings "Swallowed, Followed."
Gavin and Nigel use an effect that mixes a flanger and distortion.
Thats what gives it that neat "wohhhohhoh" sound.

"Swallowed"  3rd track off "Razorblade Suitcase"
By Bush  Written by Gavin Rossdale

I saw this tabbed out by Marc Zeitlin , but it
was wrong.  Except for the chorus, which I simplified down to power
chords.  My tab also has a first guitar part, which is actually what 
most of this file is.

Second guitar does this whenever it plays

The outro for 2nd guitar, after the 1st guitar's bend on
the 21st fret, is just picking through this:

g:--10--
d:--10--
a:--8---

I could be wrong, I could be right, if you don't like it, 
tab it yourself.

So far all of the intros submitted for Swallowed by Bush have been pretty 
sketchy so I decided to send in one that is very close to being down to 
the note correct.  It will make a nice addition to the tabs currently posted
