I Got a Name
by Jim Croce (from His Greatest Hits)
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jim_croce/i_got_a_name_tab.html )
I don't remember if I figured this out on
my own, or with a tab. In either case, I don't
have, and can't find, a tab file for this song
(for the key it's in on Photographs & Memories),
so I figured I'd make one.
[E] Like the pine trees [B]linin' the windin' [C#m]road
I got a [A]name,[B] I got a[E] name
[E] Like the singin' [B]bird and the croakin' [C#m]toad
I got a [F#]name, I got a [B]name
[G#m] And I carry it [A]with me like my [E]daddy did[G#]
But I'm livin' a [C#m]dream [F#] that he can't [B]give
[G#m]Movin' me down the [A]highway,
[G#m]Rollin' me down the [C#m]highway
A B *(x2)
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

[E] Like the north wind [B]whistlin' on down the [C#m]sky
I got a [A]song,[B] I got a [E]song
[E] Like the whipper[B]will and the baby's [C#m]cry
I got a [F#]song, I got a [B]song
[G#m] And I carry it [A]with me and I [E]sing it loud[G#]
If it gets me [C#m]nowhere,[F#] I'll go there [B]proud
[G#m]Movin' me down the [A]highway,
[G#m]Rollin' me down the [C#m]highway
A B *
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by
(solo: This is kinda' close. He does a lot
of slides, hammerons, pulloffs, bends, etc.
These notes are right, though.)

I got a [A]dream,[B] I got a [E]dream
[E] They can change their [B]minds but the can't change [C#m]me
I got a [F#]dream, I got a [B]dream
[G#m] I know I could [A]share it if you [E]want me to[G#]
If you're goin [C#m]my way,[F#] I'll go with [B]you
[G#m]Movin' me down the [A]highway,
[G#m]Rollin' me down the [C#m]highway

Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by
[G#m]Movin' me down the [A]highway,
[G#m]Rollin' me down the [C#m]highway
[A]Movin' ahead so [B]life won't
* * E
pass me by
