Runaway  Del Shannon

Runaway
Del Shannon
Tab by:oman@fusemail.com
This is great song from the early 60's, if you can find it, I'd
check out the version by Luis Cardenas from the mid 80's. It is
truly a great rendition and really kicks. It was first time I'd
heard the lead, originally play on an organ, played on guitar ,
which is what I tabbed here.

[Am] [G]  
As I walk along I wonder, what went wrong,
[F] [E] 
with our love, a love we thought was strong.
[Am] [G]  
And as I still walk on I think of, the things we done,
[F] [E]  
together, when our hearts were young.
CHORUS:
[A] [F#m]  
I'm a walkin' in the rain, tears are fallin' and I feel the pain.
[A] [F#m] [A] 
Wishin' you were here by me, to end this misery, and I wonder...
[F#m]  
I wa - wa - wa - wa - wonder.
[A] [F#m] [D] 
Why. why - why - why - why - why - she ran away, and I wonder,
[E] [A] [D] [E] 
when she will stay, my little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway.
LEAD: ( really dirty up your guitar for this, make it mean & nasty )
note: I wrote this in small increments to make easier to follow
/=slide up \=slide down h=hammer r=rake(pull-off) v=vibrate
