Running From an Angel  Hootie & the Blowfish

(tabbed by
and Paul Hutchinson <
Note: This song is capo'd at the second fret. Chords are relative to the
capo, single notes are at their true fret positions. It also sounds good to
play the D chords by plucking the D string and then playing the chord.
(intro): | D Bm | D Bm A | D Bm | D A D | x3
(First time just riff - see tab,
second time acoustic enters,
third time w/band)
[D] Don't look a [Bm]gift horse in the [D]mouth[Bm] [A]
[D] Don't try and [Bm]tell me[D] what they're talking a[A]bout, [D]oh
Those things you're dealing with, you're living a lie
Everytime I see you it makes me wanna cry
(intro riff)
The times we laughed and talked, seems like yesterday
Then you let the white horse come and take you away
They came to get you it was coal black
The wheels were in motion, there was no turning back
[A] Running from an [Bm]angel
[A] Running to the [Bm]devil, [G]devil yeah
(intro riff)
Running from an angel
Running to the devil
I gave up on you a long time ago
Well, there's something I want you to know
Your lying and cheating really tore us apart
Please don't come home if you're gonna break my mama's heart
(intro riff)
Running from an angel
Running to the devil
Running, running, running
Don't make me cry again
(violin solo): | D | Bm | D | Bm A D | x3
Intro riff:
[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  

NB This is doubled an octave above by violin. You can copy this with an
octave pedal (as in Only Wanna Be With You) if you have one.
During the verses, the electric just strums the chords, but plays the last
bar of the intro riff over the D A D bar -"what they're talking about"
Play this over the D chords in the solo- (just strum for the other chords)
[+] [+] [+] [+]
