   |  This is the first song that I've ever tabbed out. Its pretty close to the original   |
   |  and the picking pattern and timing are not that hard to figure out. It's a great     |
   |  song and I couldn't find a decent version of it tabbed so I decided to do it myself. |
   |  If you see anythijng that needs to be corrected please feel free to do so. Have fun! |

Bridge: (strum)

Em                         Bm
That same old look in your eyes 

                 C
it's a beautiful night 

                  G     D/F#
I'm so tempted to stay 

Em                         Bm 
But too much time has gone by 

                        C
We should just say good-bye 

                  D
and turn and walk away
