Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Take Me  Edwin McCain

I pull my bo[E]ots off,   [464444]
Throw my weapon on[Asus2]    the floor  [242222]
I cry my e[E]yes out   [464444]
In my private little [Asus2]war        [242222]
Well it s[E]eems I've been a soldier
Heaven kn[464444]ows I've been no saint
With my cam[Asus2]ouflage and armor
Cold h[242222]eart and grease paint
To y[E]ou this has no meaning
The a[464444]rmistice laid down
The a[Asus2]rmies all are quiet
And the [242222]guns don't make a sound, 'cause you..
[E]   You melted the steel walls,[C#m7] tore down the bobwire
Bm7 Asus2 (002100)
filled in the trenches, demanded a ceasefire
[E]   And now you're leavin',[C#m7] there's nothin' I can do
Bm7 Asus2 (002100)
I want you to know, you're gonna take me with you

2nd Verse
Well now feel the match on suicide in the foxhole of my mind
and way off in the distance, the air raid sirens whine
and they sing your song of rescue, to my tattered worn out shell
you drag me to your safety, from this my front line hill


[C#m]  The blood that was[D] spilled in the heartache bef[E]ore
[C#m]  Left on massive sc[Asus2]ars, that I nev[B]er, never could ignore to you [E]

CHORUS(acoustic only)

Fade off playing chorus part--sing "Doot dooo doot dooo doot"
