Artist: (the) Melvins
Album: (A) Senile Animal
Song: A History Of Bad Men

This is my first tab, it’s pretty easy, but a badass song, and really fun to play. 
The intro solo isn’t complete, it’s just a rough idea of what to play, so mess 
around with and have fun! At the end (outro) there’s some weird scratching,
it sound’s like Buzz’s guitar is speaking, if anyone can tell me how to play
that part it’d be great.
 
Tuning: drop D

Lyrics (my interpretation)

(Verse)

Wake up, you never looked so glum, how'd you know, they can't hear us coming?
, its easy for me, I got a head-start, running away

Keep up, your disease spreads quick, how'd you learn to be sick so cunning, 
it's easy to sing, but you just keep on humming along


Do you hear that? I've got a real bad feeling. How many bones, do you suppose 
they're keeping? Don't make a sound, they're not dead, just sleeping

(bridge)

Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting
Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting
Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting
Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting
Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting
Dire, Dire, Dire, it’s fleeting


(Verse)


Wake up, you never looked so glum, how'd you know, they can't hear us coming?
, Its easy for me, I got a head-start, running away

Keep up, your disease spreads quick, how'd you learn to be sick so cunning, 
It’s easy to sing, but you just keep on humming along


Do you hear that? I've got a real bad feeling. How many bones, do you suppose 
they're keeping? Don't make a sound; they're not dead, just sleeping
