Tina Dico - On the run (acoustic)
---------------------------------

Here's an acoustic version of Tina Dicos "On the run", the way she plays it
alone on her guitar. It is a little more sophisticated and if you are a true
beginner you may just skip to the end where you find a simple chord version to
play along.

Intro
-----

The Intro is for Beginners, just two strums Am and Em ;-). She also adds a palm
mutet upbeat, but you can omit it.

     Am                   Em
    |0~~~~~~~|~~~~~~~~|0~~~~~~~|~~~~~~0~|         ^ - Downstroke

Verse 1
-------

On the verse she makes some use of different chords that vary the main chord
progression Am Em F E Am Em F Am a little bit.

Chorus
------

The Chorus is simply strummed over these chords:

        F Am Em Dm F Am G G Am C Am C

Strum with standard rhythm (^^vv^v also known as DDUUDU) and (of cause)
DDUUDUUDUUDU for the two bars of G.

When it comes to the Am/C part an Asus4 comes into play:

     Am  Asus4          C              Am  Asus4          C
    |0---0-----0---0-#--0-0---0---0-00|0---0-----0---0-#--0-0---0-------|

Verse 2
-------

Verse 2 is just like verse 1, except that on the first bars she reduces it to
single strums and some picking on the base notes.

     Am                Em                F                 E
    |0-------|--------|0-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|...

    |0-------|--------|2-------|------3-|--------|--------|--------|---2-222|...
    |--------|--------|0-------|--------|--------|--------|--------|---0-000|
     ^                 ^                                               v v^v

     continue like in verse 1

------
Bridge
------

The bridge has some picking on the 3rd to 5th string. She plays it with her
index finger constantly residing on the first fret of the D-string and her
middle finger jumping from the third fret on the A-string to the second fret of
the G-string. I personally prefer using my ring finger for the A-string and my
middle finger for th G-string. Note that the first bass note of each bar is only
1/8th long and therefore has to be muted with with you thumb. Listen to it, to
get a proper feeling of the rhythm.

Generally spoken, the bridge consists of 2 bars with an A as bass note followed
by two bars with a C as bass note and this is repeated three times.

Complete Song
-------------

Finally, here's the complete song to play along. I ommitted all the special
chords and reduced it to the basics. If you learned them from above, you know
where to play what and when and if you don't, you can just strum the chords,
which will sound good, too. BTW: I think she sings "lead me astray" not "lead my
astray" as stated on her web site.


Intro           (Am)                           Em
                  I wake in the morning with one thing on my mind


Verse 1         Am                             Em
                  I wake in the morning with one thing on my mind
                   F                              E
                To get up on my feet and be on my way
                Am                                 Em
                  The wide roads are calling and I'm running out of time
                   F                              Am
                To make the most of this exciting day

                C    Dsus2 Am   C    D
                Hey! Hey!  Hey! Hey! Hey!

Chorus                 F                  Am
                Everybody's gotta end up somewhere
                         Em                Dm
                I'm just taking my time to get there
                       F                         Am
                And it looks like freedom and it smells like fun
                       G                       Am C Am C
                But it feels like being on the run

Verse 2         Am                             Em
                  I wake in the morning with one thing in my head
                    F                                    E
                The haunting sound of chords I've yet to play, Hey!
                Am                                     Em
                  It sounds like a warning that maybe I should stay in bed
                  F                                   Am
                Before these winding roads lead me astray

                C    Dsus2 Am   C    D
                Hey! Hey!  Hey! Hey! Hey!

Chorus                 F                  Am
                Everybody's gotta end up somewhere
                         Em                Dm
                I'm just taking my time to get there
                       F                         Am
                And it looks like freedom and it smells like fun
                       G                       Am
                But it feels like being on the run

Bridge
                Somewhere there's a place for us, a place for us where
                there's a place for us


Chorus                 F                  Am
                Everybody's gotta end up somewhere
                         Em                Dm
                I'm just taking my time to get there
                       F                         Am
                And it looks like freedom and it smells like fun
                       G                       Am
                But it feels like being on the run

Outro           Am                             Em
                  I wake in the morning with one thing on my mind
