I must first warn that this is just the way I play this song on my acoustic guitar. It
not be exactly how it is played
by the artist. Keep in mind that I am trying to make the song sound complete and full
just one instrument.
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

*Chords*
Verse:
[C]You're the one thing that I'm leaving [Em]that will come to my mind dreaming
[C]All along the highway speeding [Em]and up in the air as far as I fly
[C]You're the first thing that I'm thinking [Em]when I'm taking off and landing
[C]In the cities that I'm playing [Em]to the people I won't ever know
Chorus:
[Am]This is the last time out for [C]me I don't want to find out [Em]we
[Am]Drifted apart or lost our [C]way, I'll be home by Satur-[Em]day
Verse:
[C]Last night in New York City [Em]I met a girl almost as pretty
[C]And if I had one more whiskey, [Em]everything would have all just slipped away
Chorus:
[Am]This is the last time out for [C]me, I don't want to wait and [Em]see
[Am]If while away you've been un-[C]true, have you found somebody [Em]new
[Am]And if I'm wrong then don't you [C]stray, I'll be home by Satur-[Em]day
Verse:
[C]You're the one thing that I'm leaving [Em]that will come to my mind dreaming
[C]All along the highway speeding [Em]and up in the air as far as I fly
I left out of the intro and breaks that are heard in the song, but you can figure it
It's all just "C, Em" except for the chorus, which is "Am, C, Em", and that's it! Enjoy.
This is my first tab. I hope it's okay.
