Title: “LIFE OF A SOLDIER”
Artist: ILL SCARLETT
TABBED By: Bill Lupton
Email: bill.lupton@hotmail.com

I have not seen this tab on the net yet.  So I decided to throw it down real
quick.  This Tab is played in standard tuning.  These are just the parts, I did
not write out the rhythm, listen to the song and figure it out.  Its not too
bad.  Comments, suggestions, improvements are welcome, but this should get you
started.  Cheers.

Solo: This is played together and makes a wicked harmony.
      You can play this with one guitar if you want just ignore
      The notes before the bends, but it sounds way better with 2 gtrs.
      This can also be played over the last chorus.

Lyrics:

You’re at home, I’m away
And if all I can say
Is that this boy is still the same
It’s the man inside that’s changed
Front of the line but still behind
Seems like I’m trying way too hard
And like I haven’t tried at all
Hard as stone but feeling all the weight
Feeling all the weight that’s crushing me
When you come around
You’re like a little slice of heaven when I’m coming down
Lifting me up above the clouds

I’ll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I don’t return from this life of a soldier
Don’t you be crying for me.

Throw this all away
Nothing comes for free at least that’s what they say
If I had the chance I’d do it all again
If I had the chance I’d do it all again
Racing against the clock trying to relieve the pressure
Pushing you away so we can be together
Carry me today I’ll carry you forever
Let’s take a chance and we’ll see if this won’t last
Hard as a stone but feeling all the weight
Feeling all the weight that’s crushing me
When you come around
You’re like a little slice of heaven when I’m coming down
Lifting me up above the clouds.

I’ll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I don’t return from this life of a soldier
Don’t you be crying for me.

There’s a car pulling up and the man who’s inside
Takes a deep breath as he straightens his tie
It’s nothing new cause he’s done this before
She knew it as soon as he knocked on the door
Please someone please tell me I must be dreaming
What will I do oh, I just can’t believe it
Taken away, oh he’s
Taken away
Someone take me away
Someone take me away.

I’ll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I don’t return from this life of a soldier
Don’t you be crying for me.

Nothing comes for free at least that’s what they say
If I had the chance I’d do it all again
