This song is a lot less funky than some of RHCP's harder songs but It's 
still really good. 

This TAB transcription was created using TAB MASTER version 1.0
It makes tabbing songs a whole lot easier. If you want to you can 
download it through the OLGA resources\tab utilities it is called tablat.

P.S. I'm not sure about the F6 Chord in the chorus so if you find 
something that works better E-mail me at .

Lyrics:

My friends are so depressed
I feel the question
Of your loneliness
Confide... cause I'll be on your side
You know I will, you know I will      
 
X Girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate
On the prison phone
They want... to give her 7 years
For being sad

Chorus :
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed
And standing on
The brink of emptiness
No words... I know of to express
This emptiness

Chorus :
Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release is peace
I heard a little girl
And what she said
Was something beautiful
To give... your love
No matter what

Lyrics:

My friends are so depressed
I feel the question of your loneliness
Confide 'cause I'll be on your side
You know I will you know I will

Ex-girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate on the prison phone
They want to give her seven years
For being sad

Chorus:
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed 
And standing on the brink of emptiness
No words I know of to express
This emptiness

Chorus

Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release in peace

I heard a little girl
And what she said 
Was something beautiful
To give your love 
No matter what she said

    Then you just repeat the whole section again and then it goes off into
"imagine me
    taunt by tradegy......".  If anyone has any suggestions,flares or thanks
it would be 
    cool if you could e-mail me- zzagibso@dingo.uq.edu.au.  I don't think I
have put the 
    right amount of times you play each note but you can figure that out. If
anyone has     any other chili peppers or John frusciante songs could you
e-mail them to me. Just     while I am doing this Australian bands are the
best in the world. Enjoy.               Martin Gibson.
