C
And talk is cheap when the story is good
D                                     G     (riff 1)
And the tales grow taller on down the line
G
But I'm telling you, babe
C
That I don't think it's true, babe
D                              G    G   G/F#

You're putting on your bedroom eyes
D                                            G   (riff 1)
You say you're coming home but you won't say when
G
But I can feel it coming
C
If you leave tonight keep running
D                            G      G  G/F# 
And you need never look back again


Repeat Refrain x 1


Solo

(It will help if you have a guitar with 24 frets with this,
 otherwise you'll be doing some SERIOUS string bending!)
 I'll admit that the tab is NOT exact, but if you listen to the track
you'll get a better idea of the timing/picking.

Speaking as a mere mortal... Capo 5 and singing it an octave down makes it reasonable to sing.
