                         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

         G                            D
He's in sales, he's gone most of the year


    G
He smiles through all his lies

       C
With dollar 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 

              G
But he'll be there for you

                     D
When push comes to shove


     G
His mama called him Harold

C                            G
And she was one of only two women

      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 

                    G
And tangled up his mind


G                     
My old friend Harry

D
Lookin' kinda scary

                  D7            Riff 3 (Em  C  D)
Wonders if he's runnin' out of time


     G
Now Biloxi's got a sadness

        C
Like a dark day in December

G
That Harry recognizes 

     D     
In all forgotten southern towns


G
Thumbin' through the phonebook

       C
For a name he can't remember

          G                   D
Lookin' desperate, like a junkie

                            Em      D
Waitin' for a fix to come around


C
Sittin' playing Blackjack

C
With a hooker and a tourist

C                                    G
And a one-eyed dealer winning every hand

G
Harry sips Black Label

D
Slumps down at the table

                 D7           Riff 3 (Em)  
Feelin' like a fraction of a man

(C)              (D)          Em      C     D      G
Feelin' like a fraction of a man



He doesn't play these on Honeydew, but he puts them in on his live album.
