Aint It Heavy  Melissa Etheridge




















Sometime[A]s I know that it's never enough
Surviv[A]al is fine but satisfaction is rough
I t[E]ry with an angel tonight
Sprea[A]d these wings and I'm on for the ride
Crui[A]se these streets where my innocence hides
Ther[E]e's some things you [C#m]can't deny            [A]
W[F#m]hat is it about this human condi[A]tion
I n[F#m]eed some kind of promise some kind                 [A]
of submission tonight      [E]

CHORUS
Heav[B]y
Ain't it heavy[A]
Ain't the night heavy     [E]

[D/A/E]                                     
I'm feeling kinda loose I'm feeling kinda mean
I've been feeling kinda wild since I turned 17
Or is it madness
Tell me where can a woman find any kinda peace
When does the fury and the agony cease
How long have I got to say please
There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
I've been riping out seams somebody else made tonight

The general strum pattern is d u d(muted) u u d and the
muted down strum can be replaced with the E6 on down
strum. This is also transcribed from Melissa's MTV
Unplugged performance so it's more acoustic than electric
and played slower than the album version.
