"From Where You Are"
set tempo
A song written for the Allstate teen safe driving program commercial/campaign, not on 
of their albums as yet.

Standard tuning.

Chords used:

F: 133210
Am: X02210
G: 320010
G2:320033 (I think the 2nd electric guitar strums this chord in the chorus)

The picking pattern throughout the intro and verse I think is something like this:


Intro: F Am G

F                           Am      G
So far away from where you are

F                                  Am     G
These miles have torn us worlds apart

F               Am   G
And I miss you

F               Am    G
Yeah I miss you

So far away from where you are
And standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here


(Where the * is I think theres another word but I can't make it out, comment if you can)

Am                           F
I miss the years that were erased

Am                              G2
And I miss the way the sunshine (*) lit up your face

Am                       F
I miss all the little things

Am                                G2
I never thought that they'd mean everything to me

F               Am     G
Yeah I miss you

F               Am     G
And I wish you were here

And back to the verse:

I feel the beating of your heart
I see the shadows of your face
Just know that wherever you are
I miss you
And I wish you were here


Thats pretty much the whole song, enjoy. Comments welcome.

thanks for the tab. it's a beautiful song. I was trying to figure it out myself and was looking at your work for help. I think the opening may need some adjusting. I've never tabbed before so don't think i'm putting you down, I'm really asking for your help in figuring it out 'cause I'm sure you're better than me. anyway, I feel like the beginning of the picking pattern should be altered. listening to the song, it sounds like the G should be left open instead of picking that string at the 2nd fret. any thoughts?

hey there... great work tabbing that wonderful song! its sad but really nice. i think the missing word youre looking for in the verse, its "would".
i think jason wade sings the following lyrics:
"... i miss the way that sunshine would light up your face..."
anyway keep rockin', take care, GB

sorry but the intro is wrong ver. 2 intro is right. If you watch the video, he doesn't play a full F like you have it. It is a Variation of F, maybe Fmaj9. Watch the video at the allstate website
