Black Molly

expanded by Rosa

Capo at 2 (lie versions he plays with capo 3)

The main part is just an E with a descending bass note alternating with a normal E
Here are two ways to play the descending riff (I've just noted the shifts, strum on every beat):
I find the first way sounds more like the album and better replicates the bass, 
but the second is easier to play and sounds more like later live versions.

Way 1: 1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1...  Way 2: 1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1...
    E|-0-------0--0----0-|       E|-0-------0--0----0-|
    B|-0-------0--0----0-|       B|-0-------0--0----0-|
    G|-1-------1--1----1-|       G|-6-------6--4----1-|
    D|-2-------2--2----2-|       D|-7-------6--4----2-|
    A|-0---------------2-|       A|-7-------6--4----2-|
    E|---------4--2----0-|       E|-0-------0--0----0-|

E  : 022100

A  : 577655 or x02220

Riff
Black mollies in the aquarium
E
Darting back and forth as though an earthquake were certain
Riff
And I turned up the heater
E
And I ripped off my shirt
G#m
And I grabbed hold of my stereo 
A                         B
And I threw it out the window 
E                 Riff
You were in town again
E                  Riff
You'd come around again
E                          B7    E
You were dragging me down again with you 

Riff E x2

Riff
Siamese fighting fish flashing like sparklers 
E
It started to rain 
Riff
And the telephone rang a couple of times 
E
I put a bullet through its cold dead brain
G#m
and I got out my photographs of you 
A                        B
and I put bullets though all of them too 
E                 Riff
You were in town again 
E                  Riff
You'd come around again
E                         B7       E
You were dragging me down again with you
