Tab by:oman@fusemail.com

This is great song from the early 60's, if you can find it, I'd
check out the version by Luis Cardenas from the mid 80's. It is
truly a great rendition and really kicks. It was first time I'd
heard the lead, originally play on an organ, played on guitar ,
which is what I tabbed here. 

[Intro]

e|-----0-0---------0-0---------0-0--------0-0------0--|
B|-----1-1---------1-1---------1-1--------1-1------1--|
G|-----2-2---------2-2---------2-2--------2-2------2--|
D|-----2-2---------2-2---------2-2--------2-2------2--|
A|--0-----------0-----------0-----------0----------0--|
E|---------0-3---------0-3---------0-3--------0-3-----|


[Verse]

 Am                G                
 
 As I walk along I wonder, what went wrong,

      F                               E

 with our love, a love we thought was strong.

 Am                       G

 And as I still walk on I think of, the things we done,

 F                              E
 
 together, when our hearts were young.


[Chorus]

 A                          F#m  

 I'm a walkin' in the rain, tears are fallin' and I feel the pain.
   
 A                            F#m                        A

 Wishin' you were here by me, to end this misery, and I wonder...

                       F#m

 I wa - wa - wa - wa - wonder.

 A                             F#M                       D

 Why.  why - why - why - why - why - she ran away, and I wonder,

               E               A        D                      E
 
 when she will stay, my little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway.

(really dirty up your guitar for this, make it mean & nasty)
