Theresas Sound World Bass Tab

   
Sonic Youth - Theresa's sound world
Standard tuning. Numbers in curly braces mean you should play them when you 
feel like it or when it sounds right. Kim does this I am sure but I don't know 
exactly where. I'll leave you to figure it out. It is not 100% correct but best 
to my ear. Feel free to improvise.

"Kinda like a cloud I was up, was up, way up in the sky and I was feeling 
some feelings you wouldn't believe, sometimes I don't believe it myself and 
i decided i was never coming down 
Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about too small to see 
but i watched it way too long, it was pulling me down...."
