VERSE
       Bm                   A
By the time I'd slipped the ball and chain,
      F#m              G
I was heading down the road again
      Bm              A                 D
I was heading for somewhere I shouldn't be


VERSE (+ bridge)
      Bm                 A
And I heard you shouting me who wait,
       F#m              G
Better turn back now or it's too late,
          G               Gm          D
'Cos it's heading for the point of no return


CHORUS
F#/C# Bm
No  return
G  F#   Bm     Esus  E
   No return
       G              Gm          [D]
It was getting to the point of no return

VERSE
         Bm                 A
We could only run, we could never walk,
         F#m                  G
We could only shout, we could never talk
        Bm             A                   D
We were living way too close to the border line


VERSE (+ bridge)
          Bm             A
While the city boys were hanging out
          F#m                       G
Trying to clean their shares in the laundromat,
       G              Gm          D
It was getting to the point of no return


CHORUS
F#/C# Bm

       Bm                    A
I just had to leave couldn't stay no more,
         F#m      G
Down the elevator to the door
       G              Gm          D
It was getting to the point of no return

No  return

It was getting to the point of no return

I totally overlooked this comment - thank you very much!

Why not more ratings? I really do not know. I have perfect tabs with 60,000 hits and one rating. I have perfect tabs with totally undeserved two-star ratings. Users choose to rate or they chose not to. Obviously, the people who use your tabs are more generous.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Thank you..you bring up some very good points. I do not know...but I "suspect" that the overwhelming bulk of the viewers who come to UG are "average" to "novice" guitar players. I generally try to keep my tabs "simple" with the idea that I provide the meat and potatoes and someone else provides the spices. By that I mean I don't try to add "everything" to the song. Your tabs are...in my opinion...across the board excellent. However, for "some" people...perhaps a bit complex. If you are an accomplished guitar player then "complex" is really what you want...and desire. If, however, the audience you are targeting does not have that skill level then you may be disappointed in the feedback you receive. I have always advocated that UG provide several playing skill "levels" for the same song. One very, very helpful way to drive more viewers to your tabs is to have a separate web site. I have two such sites and they do help. I would be very happy and honored to include your name on my site to link with UG.

I did this also for Kraziekhat. I believe your tabs deserve much greater recognition and this might help...it would help.
