Aint It Heavy

Melissa Etheridge

Sometimes I know that it's never enough
Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough
I try with an angel tonight
Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
Cruise these streets where my innocence hides
There's some things you can't deny             
What is it about this human condition
I need some kind of promise some kind                  
of submission tonight       

Ain't it heavy 
Ain't the night heavy      

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.
