Tabbed by: Corndogman939@yahoo.com

Capo 4
For the strumming use a simple base-strum down-up style. Listen to the song for what 
sounds best.

To get it to sound more like the song, I do a hammer-on for the next note after the 
base note. So for G chord I hammer on 2nd fret on A string with 1st finger. For 
Dsus4/F# hammer on 2nd fret on G string with 2nd finger, etc. So you hammer on right 
after plucking the base note and before the strum. Don't do this for D and Em, just 
strum regular.

Chords used:
Em7		Dsus4/F#
022033		200233	

Intro:
G	Dsus4/F#	Em7	D	Em

Verse: 
           G  Dsus4/F#            Em7        D	  Em
Oh it takes   my		 life       away
       G      Dsus4/F#          Em7     D	Em
To think     of	                her    as gone
        G  Dsus4/F#   Em7            D	     Em
Now I知 running	      down the       maze
	G  Dsus4/F#      Em7     D	D
And I知 finding		 only   war


G  Dsus4/F#         Em7       D	              Em
Blowing 	    down the  flame
       G     Dsus4/F#        Em7       D	Em
To catch     the  	     burning   wind
        G  Dsus4/F#    Em7       D	  Em
Now I知 running	       out of    steam
    G     Dsus4/F#   Em7       D	   D
Now watch this 	     man       collapse


Chorus:
D	          Em	     D
You said you wanted a better life
	      Em           D
And you will tell me what you find
              G     Dsus4/F#   Em7        D	         Em
And then I値l stay  the       whole night through
	G       Dsus4/F#      Em7       D       Em
And I値l turn   from	      sad to    blue
	  G    Dsus4/F#    Em7     D	  Em
Yes I知   choking	   after   you 
	 G   Dsus4/F#	 Em7	   D	  D
Yeah I知 choking 	 after     you

Verse: (same as verse 1)
Wish you壇 think of me
The way I think of you
Well I find it hard to breathe
Cause now I know the truth

So what good would fingers be
If it weren稚 for diamond rings?
Now I know you池e leaving me
And I know that I知 no king

Chorus: (same)
And you said you wanted a better life
And you will tell me oh what you find
And then I stay the whole night through
And I turn from sad to blue
Yeah I知 choking after you
Miss, I知 choking now, do you?

Go ahead now, tell them all about it

(Solo plays here, strum chorus in the background)

Verse:
So what good would fingers be
If it weren稚 for diamond rings?
Now I know you池e leaving me
And I know that I知 no king
