Far Behind - Candlebox


       Now I am no good at writing tabs or anything, but I sat down and
figured this one out one day and since I haven't seen it in this
newsgroup yet, I thought someone might want to know it... but don't jump
all over me because it's not exactly right, but I think i'm pretty damn
close.


[Main part] w/Chorus Effect

e|-------5---5h7---5-------7-7---------5-5-------------2------------|
B|-------------------------8-8---------7-7--------------3-----------|
G|-----0---0-----0--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------0-----0---------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------0--------------------------------------------|


   Now Maybe             I didn't mean to treat you bad


e|----------------------0----0---------|
B|-----------------3------3----3-------|
G|--------------0-----------0----0-----|
D|------------2------------------------|
A|--0---2-3----------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|


    But I did it anyway...               etc..


        That's the main part, you just repeat that until you get to the
        chorus which is just these chords:

                  G Em D C9
               e|-2-0--2-0-
               B|-0-0--3-3-
               G|-0-0--2-0-
               D|-0-2--0-2-
               A|-2-2--x-3-
               E|-3-0--x-x-


         G       Em                           D
     Now maybe     I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
           C9                   G     Em
     but I did it anyway    now maybe   some would say you're
               D                    C9
     left with what you had but you couldn't share the pain   no no no



Sorry, no lead part in this one. Mebbe next time. Layter.
