                  "Pretty Penny" by Stone Temple Pilots
                        Chords by Fred Gotfredson

Allright, people were wondering about this song, and it is rather easy.

* Both Guitar 1 and 2 are accoustic.
* The ending chord on both guitars is an open E (as in the 1st Interlude for
  guitar 2 shown below)

Lyrics
------

(4 measure intro, w/ verse music)

Have you seen your mother girl?
Has she gone away?
Gone away and found the pearl
But the price she paid

(Chorus:)

Gone
When you wake in the morning
Gone
When you find that there's no one sleeping
Gone
Pretty Penny was her name
She was loved and we all will miss her

How far will you go, I say
Just to bait a mouse?
Shorter lived and longer gone
Can you figure out?

(Chorus)

(4 measures of verse music)

(1st Interlude)

(4 measures of verse music)

Have you lost your sister girl?
SHe's all but blown away
blown away and lost the pearl
And the price she paid

Hmmmm... (4 measures of verse music during hmm)

(2nd Interlude)

(3 measures of verse music then open E ending chord)

   have        you   seen           your

and listen to the CD if you can't get the rhythm...

E       Guitar one plays the open E chord in the following manner:

0       1     2     3     1   (I included picking instructions for a general
1       /-----/--/--/-----/    idea of how it goes, you don't have to be
2       |     |  |  |                                   precise about it)
2       |     |  |  |downstroke pick all strings
0       |     |  |*lightly* upstroke pick strings
        |     |downstroke pick all strings
