Before They Make Me Run  The Rolling Stones

Subject: Rolling Stones - Before They Make Me Run
From: Jim Henning <ujhennin@uxa.ecn.bgu.edu>
Subject: CorrectedTab
Here is my rough attempt at tab for a Stones classic. The songs is in
open G tuning (D G D G B D). If you want to really be Keith
Richards-esque, remove the low D string completely.
First there is the opening riff as follows:
 
 D|-12----12--12--12--12-----x----0------5----5--7----0-----------------|
 B|-12----12--12--13--12-----x----0------5----5--7----0-----------------|
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-----------------|
 D|-12----12--12--14--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-----------------|
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5----5--7----0-----------------|
 D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

While I'm at it, I'll get all of the tab out of the way first. Here is
the tab for the chorus parts:
After All is said and done
 
 D|-12----12--12--12--12-----x----x------7------------------------------
 B 12----12--12--13--12-----x----x------7------------------------------
 G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 D 12----12--12--14--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 G 12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 D --------------------------------------------------------------------

I gotta move while it's still fun
 
 D|-12----12--12--12--12-----x----x------7------------------------------
 B|-12----12--12--13--12-----x----x------7------------------------------
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 D|-12----12--12--14--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----9------7------------------------------
 D|---------------------------------------------------------------------

I better walk before they make me run
 
 D|-12----12--12--12--12-----x----0------5-------7----0-----------------
 B|-12----12--12--13--12-----x----0------5-------7----0-----------------
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-----------------
 D|-12----12--12--14--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-----------------
 G|-12----12--12--12--12-----9----0------5-------7----0-----------------
 D|---------------------------------------------------------------------

Some chords you'll need to know in open G
[D] [G] [D] [G] [B] [D]  
 
 ----------------

G 0 0 0 0 0 0 and also 12 12 12 12 12 12
[C] [5] [5] [5] [5] [5] [5]  
[D]Emin [7]x [7]9 [7]9 [7]9 [7]x [7]x
F 10 10 10 10 10 10
[A#] [3] [3] [3] [3] [3] [3]  
A common Keith chord is like you see on the fourth chording in the
opening riff. It is like hammering on the same chord position you would
call in standard (concert) guitar tuning for A minor augmented.
For a C position chord, the hammer on would go:
C-chord [D]5 [G]5 [D]5 [G]5 [B]5 [D]5 hammer on F-chord [D]5 [G]5 [D]7 [G]5 [B]6 [D]5
If you can do this, you can play Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, etc. etc.
etc...
Better Walk Before They Make Me Run
by Jagger/Richards
(opening riff)
[F]Worked the [Emin]bars and [D]sideshows a[F]long the [Emin]twighlight [D]zone
[G]Only a crowd can make you feel so alone
[G]And it really hit home
[F]Booze and [Emin]pills and [D]powders, you can [F]choose your[Emin] medi[D]cine
[G]Well here's another goodbye to another good [D]friend
(use chorus tab)
After all is said and done
I better move while it's still fun
I better walk before they make me run
Watched the taillights fading, there ain't a dry eye in the house
They're laughing and singing
Started dancing and drifting as I left town
Gonna find my way to heaven, `cause I did my time in hell
I wasn't looking too good but I was feeling real well
After all is said and done
I better move I had my fun
I better walk before they make me run
(bridge) G - D - F - C - A#
[G] [-] [D] [-] [F] [-] [C] [-] [A#]  
[G] [-] [D] [-] [F] [-] [C] [-] [D]  
After all is said and done
I better move, it's still fun
I better walk before they make me
I better walk before they make me
I better walk before they make me run
