Like the pine trees lining the winding road, I got a name, I got a name

 Em             F                C      E
And I carry it with me like my Daddy did
                    Am  Am/G           G  Gsus G/D
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid

CHORUS:
  Em                 F        Em                  A7
Moving me down the highway, rolling me down the highway

Moving ahead so life won't pass me by

Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry, I've got a song, I've got a song
  Em             F             C         E
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
                 Am  Am/G              G Gsus G/D
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud        ...CHORUS (END ON RIFF 2A)

I've got a dream, I've got a dream
 Em              F               C         E
I know I could share it, if you want me to

I Got a Name
by Jim Croce (from His Greatest Hits)

I don't remember if I figured this out on
my own, or with a tab.  In either case, I don't
have, and can't find, a tab file for this song
(for the key it's in on Photographs & Memories),
so I figured I'd make one.

E                    B                  C#m
 Like the pine trees linin' the windin' road
        A    B       E
I got a name, I got a name
E                 B                     C#m
 Like the singin' bird and the croakin' toad
        F#            B
I got a name, I got a name

G#m               A               E          G#
   And I carry it with me like my daddy did
                 C#m   F#               B
But I'm livin' a dream    that he can't give

G#m                A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m                 C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A               B                  *(x2)
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

E                    B                     C#m
 Like the north wind whistlin' on down the sky
        A    B        E
I got a song, I got a song
E                B                   C#m
 Like the whipperwill and the baby's cry
        F#            B
I got a song, I got a song

G#m               A             E           G#
   And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
              C#m     F#               B
If it gets me nowhere,   I'll go there proud

G#m                A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m                 C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A               B                  *
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by


(solo: This is kinda' close.  He does a lot
 of slides, hammerons, pulloffs, bends, etc.
 These notes are right, though.)

I got a dream, I got a dream
E                      B                          C#m
 They can change their minds but the can't change me
        F#             B
I got a dream, I got a dream


G#m               A               E          G#
   I know I could share it if you want me to
               C#m    F#             B
If you're goin my way,  I'll go with you

G#m                 C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A               B                  *
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

G#m                A

Great Tab/Chords, although i might suggest that the first set of chords "By:mr thompson" include that they should be played on --CAPO 4-- to play along with the second set which needs no capo. Thanx, once again great job. ^_^
