VERSE 3 - w/ RYTHYM FIG 2 (two times)
forgot my woman, lost my friends
things I'd done and where I'd been
sleep in sweat, the mirror's cold
see my face, it's growing old

scared to death, no reason why
doing whatever to get me by
think about the things I've said
read the page it's cold and dead

and take me home
yeah, take me home
take me home
take me home, yeah     take me
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/alice_in_chains/dont_follow_tab.html ]

*Play Main Melody 2 times for intro (no lyrics)
*Then play Main Melody with Lyrics:

Hey, I ain't never coming home
Hey, I'll just wander my own road
Hey, I can't meet you here tomorrow
Say goodbye don't follow


*Play Fill I and Ending I with lyric:
Misery so hollow


*Again play Main Melody 2 times no lyrics and then w/lyrics:

Hey you, you're livin' life full throttle
Hey you, pass me down that bottle, yeah
Hey you, you can't shake me round now
I get so lost and I don't know how

*Play Fill I, but replace Ending I with a D chord:   -2-
                                                     -3-
(with the lyric:)                                    -2-
 And it hurts to care, I'm going down                ---
                                                     ---
                                                     ---

*There's a short pause and then the song alternates between an A chord and 
 D chord till the final outro.  You'll have to listen to the song for the
rhythm--sorry!!  There are hammer-ons for both chords as follows:

        (A)                             (D)
|--0---------------|            |--0>2-------------|
|--0>2-------------|            |--3---------------|
|--2---------------|            |--2---------------|
|--2---------------|            |--0---------------|
|--0---------------|            |--0---------------|
|--0---------------|            |--0---------------|
 
*The lyrics in this section are as follows:
Forgot my woman, lost my friends
Things I'd done and where I've been
Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
See my face it's growin' old
Scared to death no reason why
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the thing I said
Read the page it's cold and dead

Take me home (5 times then the outro:)

*The outro is simply the Main Melody played ONCE ONLY and then
 play Fill I with the D chord ending to the lyric:
Say goodbye don't follow


Thats my best guess......This is a really cool tune.
