FRACTION OF A MAN - Shawn Mullins
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Matt Faulkner
Email: mmfaulkner@una.edu
Tuning: EADGBe Capo 2
He plays different intros on each version of this song. I usually
just play G - C - G-D - G or something like that. As long as
it's in the key, it'll sound fine...
Fraction of a Man Capo 2
[G]Now my old friend Harry
[C]Never slowed down to marry
He's in s[G]ales, he's gone most of the y[D]ear
He s[G]miles through all his lies
With do[C]llar signs in his eyes
G D Riff 1 (Em G)
And he orders himself another beer
[G]Now Harry, he's a dreamer
[C]A scholar and a schemer
But he'll be t[G]here for you
When push comes to sh[D]ove
His m[G]ama called him Harold
[C]And she was one of only two w[G]omen
D Riff 2 (Em C)
That Harry ever loved
[C]The other was a waitress
[C]In Cave Creek, Arizona
[C]That broke his heart
And tangled up his m[G]ind
[G]My old friend Harry
[D]Lookin' kinda scary
D7 Riff 3 (Em C D)
Wonders if he's runnin' out of time
Now B[G]iloxi's got a sadness
Like a d[C]ark day in December
[G]That Harry recognizes
In al[D]l forgotten southern towns
[G]Thumbin' through the phonebook
For a n[C]ame he can't remember
Lookin' de[G]sperate, like a junk[D]ie
Waitin' for a fix to come ar[Em]ound[D]
[C]Sittin' playing Blackjack
[C]With a hooker and a tourist
[C]And a one-eyed dealer winning every h[G]and
[G]Harry sips Black Label
[D]Slumps down at the table
D7 Riff 3 (Em)
Feelin' like a fraction of a man
[(C)]Feelin' like a fr[(D)]action of a m[Em]an[C] [D] [G]
He doesn't play these on Honeydew, but he puts them in on his live album.
