Purple stain kicks ass!  When I first listened to this album a week or so ago, 
this song immediately became my favourite.  And guess what? I'm listening 
to it now.  :)

I think it might actually fall in second favourite after road trippin', but
hey, my favourites always fluctuate...

it's so funky and smooth! sounds right of freaky styley...
I love the way flea's slide continues on from John's, to make it like one
big slide.  They sort of did that in stone cold bush, john is in the 
solo, and scales down until the notes on the guitar can't go lower, 
and then flea continues on from their, goes lower, and starts
slappin' around...  :)

Anyway, the tab.  I tried the bass a bit too.


key: 

5/7        slide up
75        slide down
(5)        ghost note; you dont strike it; let it ring
5~ ~       tremolo/vibrato (wiggle your finger :)

I'm still workin' on this tab - it will probably be done 
soon 'cause I love this song.  hehe.


Lyrics:

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I'm in your house now let me spin 

Python power straight from Monty
Celluloid loves got a John Frusciante
Spread your head and spread the blanket
She's too free and I'm the patient 

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain ˜ I know 

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood 

Up to my ass in alligators
Let's get it on with the alligator haters
Did what you did ÷ did what you said
What's the point yo what's the spread 

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain - I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It's way out there but I don't care
'Cause this is where - I go 

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood 

It's way out there
But I don't care
'Cause this is what
I want to wear 

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood 

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I'm in your house now let me spin 

Feather light but you can't move this
Farley is an angel and I can prove this
Purple is a stain upon my pillow
Let's Sleep weeping willow 

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain ˜ I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It's way out there but I don't care
'Cause this is where ÷ I go 

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood 

It's way out there
But I don't care
'Cause this is what
I want to wear 

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood

This note is appended to my unfinished tabs.  The last couple 
of days I have been working on transcribing the chili peppers 
new album for guitar, and in some cases for bass too 
(although i've hardly ever picked up a bass)   :)      

I've done some of most of the tracks tonight, but I've got a 
major due yesterday and I've got test week coming up... it's 
too much to finish.  I have tabbed the intros and maybe verses 
to most of the songs, to give everyone a start - the idea is 
to get a network of people tabbing the album so it can be 
accurate and available for bands in the near future!  I don't 
play bass or drums, it would be great if other people could 
help out with transcribing instruments, thanks.  

The other idea of tabbing a little bit is to give all you 
guitarists a start; and please help with the tabbing if you 
think you've got better versions/methods/whatever.  If you 
have any corrections, additions (I haven't added song layouts; 
where choruses go and how many verse riffs to play etc... 
these layouts are really helpful for bands), or comments to 
add then don't be lazy and ignore it, email...!  Everyone who 
contributes will get credit, and thanks in advance for your 
effort.

If you want more transription of this particular track, the 
solo, or whatever, then send me or some other transcriber a
_friendly polite_ email with a request of what you're after.
  :)    If we get a lot of requests for a particular song, 
it will get more priority... but polite requests get the 
most attention.

Sorry 'bout the legal stuff at the top, 
but it's gotta be there.  :)
