                                   THEM BONES
                         As recorded by Alice In Chains
                           (From the 1992 Album DIRT)

Words and Music by Jerry Cantrell
Arranged by Alice In Chains

This is exactly how Jerry plays it live. I am aware this is alot different then what
the song is usually tabbed as (the solo for the most part). I watched the song's music
video and 2 live videos to make the most accurate tab available on the web. Enjoy!

Gtr I (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) - 'Jerry Cantrell'
Gtr II (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) - 'Jerry Cantrell'
Gtr III (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) - 'Jerry Cantrell'
