			     The Way - Fastball

Tabbed by: Kaitsu84

Tuning: Standard

This is a pretty easy song and it sound fantastic played
with two guitars. Guitar 1 should play the picking and
guitar 2 plays the chords. If you listen to the song
it is easy to figure out which guitar plays what.

Verse 1:
F#m
They made up their minds
		  Bm
And they started packing
       C#7				 F#m
They left before the sun came up that day
       F#7			   Bm
An exit to eternal summer slacking
F#m			   C#7
But where were they going without ever
	        F#m
Knowing the way?


Verse 2:
F#m
They drank up the wine
		Bm
And they got to talking
C#7			 	      F#m
They now had more important things to say
F#7  				      Bm
When the car broke down they started walking
F#m			   C#7
Where were they going without even
	        F#m	E
Knowing the way?


Chorus:
		     A
Anyone can see the road that they walk on
         E
Is paved with gold
F#m
It's always summer
              C#7
They'll never get cold
              D
They'll never get hungry
              A	             E
They'll never get old and grey
		   A			E
You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere
         F#m
They won't make it home
	 C#7
But they really don't care
         D
They wanted the highway
              A	           E      C#7
They're happier there today


Verse 3:
F#m
Their children woke up
		    Bm
And they couldn't find them
        C#7			   F#m
They left before the sun came up that day
        F#7				   Bm
They just drove off and left it all behind'em
F#m			  C#7
But where were they going without ever

	        F#m	E
Knowing the way?

SOLO1 F#m   Bm   F#m   C#7   F#m

Awesome tab dude. For the f#7 chord though (which is very hard to finger) I just finger the f#m and play only the top
3-4 strings, which sounds pretty good.

Nice, just a remark: at least on <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JmuNbX-cXo> and on <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DgBg_HSgHo> they play the D sometimes on the 5th fret: x57775, and sometimes the normal xx2032, sometimes one plays one version and the other one the other.

And as regards the F#7 chord: As you can hear or see on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JmuNbX-cXo at 35…37 s, they don’t play 242352 but 242322. It sounds better between the F#m and Bm and there’s no need for two 7s. And it’s easier to finger. But just playing the top 3…4 strings of F#m is nonsense, the tension of the F#7 is one of the best elements of this song!
