This guitar sequence is played through once for the intro and then once for each stanza
the verses:

For the first line of stanza play the top part of the intro sequence shown above, for
second line play the bottom part. Listen to the song for timing:


Well i left my baby for a dream as lovely,
for a love that's only in books i read.

and then i hit the cities, spent all my money,
i just left my whole life in a taxi cab.

cause it's just a memory, i can't love completely,
when you're really with me, i'm indifferent.


The sound the guitar makes in the chorus is distorted by the choir voices in the
so its quite hard to tab, but i think the following chords are fingerpicked.

Not sure about the names;

      [C]       [C+]       [F]       [G7]       [Am]       [G]                                                     
e|----0------1---------------------------3-|
B|----1------1------1-------------1------3-|
G|----0------1------2------0(1)---2------0-|
D|----2------2------3------3------2------0-|
A|----3------3------3------2------0------2-|
E|------------------1------3-------------3-|


The G7 chord varies as to the 1st fret of the G sting being played or just left open.

The timing of the fingerpicking isn't really important, aslong as its the right chord at
right time.


but i [C]try to get my head [C+]clear,
it's too full of ide[F]as that i haven't t[G7]hought of yet.
and [C]time, clocks keep waving their h[C+]ands,
doing all that they [F]can to get our at[G7]tention, but
the [F]days fly a[G]way
down a [C]clean inter[Am]state and i'm staring [G]drunk at a map.
>>>The whole intro is played once through and as before played through the verse.


so i let hair down for the second time now,
for the final time, now i had my fun.

but there's no returning from the places we've been,
just repeat our slogan, never again.

>>> Chorus as above...

so we split, said you had to get out,
headed back to the south,
where everything is gentle.

and i stayed for a couple weeks more,
all the weather reports
said it would be snow for sure,

but the storm moved away to a neighboring state.
i started the car.

>>>Outro..........

Fade out on....

Chords fingerpicked softly behind part below.
