Waiting For My Real Life To Begin
Colin Hay
Going Somewhere
Tabbed by Ian Dulley (iandulley@yahoo.co.uk)

The timing here is hard to judge from the tab alone.
I suggest you read this tab whilst listening to the
song to figure out how it goes.
At present I have only given the chords, but there's
some fingerpicking/arpeggio picking going on
throughout the song, just try to improvise, you can't
really make it sound bad.

Capo 4


Intro: 

G/D/C 
C C/F#/G C G G/D/C
C C/F#/G C G/A/B


Verse:

           C
Any minute now, 
D                 G    C    G
my ship is coming in 
A/B/                  C  B  A    G
I'll keep checking the horizon 
A/B/             C    D        G    C    G                
I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing 
A/B/         C    B    A    G    C    G
Come crashing down, down, down, on me 


Chorus:

            C      G      D  
And you say, be still my love 
            C
Open up your heart 
C      A      G        A           
Let the light shine in 
C      G      D     
But don't you understand 
                   C
I already have a plan 
    D              C           G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin 


Break:

G/D/C
C C/F#/G C G/A/B

Verse:

           C
When I awoke today, 
D                 G    C    G
suddenly nothing happened 
A/B/                  C  B  A    G
But in my dreams, I slew the dragon 
A/B/             C    D        G    C    G 
And down this beaten path, and up this cobbled lane 
A/B/         C    B    A    G    C    G
I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again 

Chorus:

            C      G      D  
And you say, just be here now 
            C
Forget about the past, 
C      A      G        A
your mask is wearing thin 
C      G      D     
Let me throw one more dice 
                   C
I know that I can win 
    D              C           G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin 


Verse:

           C
Any minute now, 
D                 G    C    G
my ship is coming in 
A/B/                  C  B  A    G
I'll keep checking the horizon 
A/B/             C    D        G    C    G
And I'll check my machine, there's sure to be that call 
A/B/         C    B    A    G    C    G
It's gonna happen soon, soon, soon, it's just that times are lean 


Chorus:

            C      G      D 
And you say, be still my love 
            C
Open up your heart, 
C      A      G        A
let the light shine in 
C      G      D
Don't you understand 
                   C
I already have a plan 
    D              C           G
I'm waiting for my real life to begin
