                               I Am Still Running - Jon Foreman
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: AWPR, Andrew Rounds
Email: rounds.andrew@gmail.com

Jon picks some variation of these chords throughout, listen to hear the pattern. The "A 
A7)" means that I couldn't decide which one was right/best, so play whichever you decide 
better.

Tuning: Standard

Intro: D - G - D - G

       D                    G
You remember me before I learned to run
          D                    G
At the kissing tree before I learned my guns
           D                   G
We were seventeen, seventeen years young
              D
I am still running
              G
I am still running

       D                     G
I had no idea the pain would be this strong
       D                     G
I had no idea the fight would last this long
       D                          G
In my darkest fears the rights become the wrongs
             D
I am still running
             G
I am still running
             D
I am still running
             G
I am still running
            D
Build me a home
              G
inside your scars
            D
Build me a home
             G
Inside your song
            D
Build me a home
            G D    Em7
inside your o-pen arms
    A (or A7)                D
The only place I ever will belong

G - D - G

D       Em7     G       A (or A7)
Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh.
             D
I am still running
             G
I am still running
             D
I am still running

I am still running
            D
Build me a home
             G
inside your scars
            D
Build me a home
             G
Inside your song
            D
Build me a home
            G D   Em7
inside your o-pen arms
     A (or A7)                D
The only place I ever will belong
     A (or A7)                D
The only place I ever will belong
            G D    Em7

On all the Choruses, it should just be a walkdown from G to F# on the E string

G (F#)Em7
inside your o-pen arms

Actually it is G/C D/B G/E in slash notation. It is not the straightforward walkdown of G F# E that we assume, instead the walkdown is C B E over chords G D G.

In classical music theory these chords are Cmaj9, Bm7, Em7 all found in the key of G major. However, since the song resolves on the D chord, and with the sudden inclusion of the A chord directly after the above walkdown, it can be said that the G major key is a borrowed key, or modal, as the piece up until this point, and after, is unarguably written in D major.

Probably too much information for a Jon Foreman piece, but I figure someone will appreciate it and perhaps learn from it, plus I hate inaccuracies. :)

Good luck fellow musicians!
