*capo 4th*


        G       C       G       D   C


    G                       C
All alone at the end of the evening
        G                           C
and the bright lights have faded to blue.
      G                B7                   Em
I was thinking 'bout a woman who might have loved me,
but I never knew.
G                     D             G                      C
        You know I've always been a dreamer (spend my life runnin' round)
         C          G
and it's so hard to change (can't seem to settle down)
        C                Am     C
but the dreams I've seen lately   keep on turnin' out
    C/D             D               C/D  D
and burnin' out and turnin' out the sa - me.


   C           G           C         G
So put me on a highway and show me a sign
    C              D              G
and take it to the limit one more   time.


G       C       G       D  C


        G                           C
You can spend all your time making money,
           G                          C
Or you can spend all your love making time.
      G           B7        Em
If it all fell to pieces tomorrow
would you still be mine?
G                   D                G               C
    And when you're looking for your freedom (nobody seems to care)
                       G                   C
And you can't find the door (can't find it anywhere)
             C            Am       C              C
when there's nothing to believe in   still you're coming back,
       C/D                  D               C/D  D
you're running back, you're coming back for mo - re.


   C           G           C         G
So put me on a highway and show me a sign
    C              D           Em
and take it to the limit one more time.

|:   C         D      C              D
     Take it to the limit, take it to the limit,
C              D           G
take it to the limit one more time.  :|
        (Repeat seven times)

(4th fret means capoed open string)

C/D     xx4454
B7      x65646

This is a good tab. One thing I like to add is pausing on the "And take it....to the limit.....one more time....like it sounds in the eagles song. so you strum the C chord, down up, then block the strings for about 2 seconds, then strum the C down, up, and change to the D chord down up, block, pause 2 seconds, down up G etc .. okay hope i made it clear enough, fun song to play.

I agree with CocOnutPete, it should be paused at that time, but i also thi nk that the intro should be G G C D C
insteded of G C G D C.I could be wrong but i think it sounds better.Good tab though, i love to play and listen to this
