    C#        F#         C#           F#            C#
But    I'm       gonna try for the kingdom if I can    this chord, and the
                F#               C#                      rest of the chords
Cos it makes me feel like I'm a man

         F#             C#                            "know" at the end of the
When I'm rushing on my run                        verse, the C# chord marks the
      F#                     C#                    beginning of riff 1 again,
And I feel just like Jesus' son                 which contintues until the
      F#                       C#                 "nullify" in the next verse.
And I guess that I just don't know              this pattern continues thru
      F#                        C#      F#     C#       F#      the whole song.
And I guess that I just don't know
 
 
C#     F#        C#   F#         C#         F#     C#
I         have made G#m  big decision
C#     F#        C#    F#          C#
I'm      gonna try     to nullify my life
             F#               C#
Cos when the blood begins to flow
       F#                       C#
And it shoots up the dropper's neck
         F#             C#
When I'm closing in on death

On a great big clipper ship
           F#                 C#
Going from this land here to that

Of all the evils of this town

Her_____oin,   it's my wife, and it's my life

Because a mainline in my vein
           F#            C#
Leads to a center in my head
             F#             C#
And then I'm better off as dead

And all the politicians making crazy sounds

About the artist behind Heroin Tab:

The Velvet Underground was an American rock band first active from 1965 to 1970 (and 1970 to 1973 in a different incarnation). Its best-known members were Lou Reed and John Cale. Although never commercially successful while together, the Velvet Underground are often cited by critics as one of the most important and influential groups of their era.[1] A famous remark, often attributed to British musician Brian Eno, is that while only a few thousand people bought the first Velvet Underground record upon its release, almost every single one of them was inspired to start a band.[2]
