Well, there's Whir for you. I still can't figure out the E's and other chords under the chorus (Whir yourself around... part) If you know it please E-mail me. Enjoy it. Hope it's not too confusing (I didn't wanna tab out repetitive lines) and it helps out. Please send comments to -=Ansigod@aol.com=-
Lyrics:
I've wasted all my years Been chasin' all my fears For another Brighter than you
I gave in long ago To make it to the show It's not easy When you're alone
All your prayers In my ears Don't you care?
Whir yourself around Just to fall back down Whir yourself around
My harlot/honey little girl C'mon lets go for a whirl It's too early Sun is sleeping
She says she wants to marry me She says she wants a baby It's not easy When you're scared
Whir yourself around Just to fall back down Whir yourself around
All your prayers In my ears Don't you care?
TAB: Smashing Pumpkins-Whir
Whir-Smashing Pumpkins Tabbed by Andy Davidoff
Last time I saw Whir tabbed it was by someone who said it was their first attempt at tabbing. I went through it and it was all pretty close, but I knew that something was missing, so I sat down and listned hard for a long time, and this is the new tab I came up with. Any comments, changes, or criticsm will be accepted by e-mailing me at .

Whir-Smashing Pumpkins Transcribed by Bryan Pero (perob@willow.uml.edu.)
Again, I'm new at this, any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It's a pretty easy song, and this sounds close.
Guitar I- acoustic Guitar II- clean electric
This part is the opening acoustic strum and is played through most of the verses. Really let the open strings ring, that's what gives it such a great sound.
