Hands All Over - Soundgarden Guitar Tab
Downloads & Mirrors
This is an environmental song. It's about the abuse of mother nature (blanketing the ocean with oil, the clear cutting of old growth forests). Then the lyrics go on to say, "Put your hands away, your gonna kill your mother," meaning the Earth. Back in 1989 Kim Thayil and Chris Cornell did an interview on MTV's Headbangers Ball with host Ricki Rachman (Ricki's first day on HB) and those were some of the things they mentioned. The video had a girl in it personifying Mother Earth.
