Like a restless leave
in the autumn breeze
once, i was a tumbleweed
Like a rollin stone
cold and all alone
living for the day my dream would come

I never cared for school
Or any golden rule
and Papa used to alway say I was a useless fool
So I left my home
to show 'em they was wrong
and headed out on the road signin my song

Then one sunny day
the man he looked my way
and everything that I dreamed of it was real
Money, girls and cars
big long cigars
and i caught the first plane home so papa could see

first i got lost then i got found, 
but the ones that i loved are in the ground 
papa I only wish you could see me now

If there's any way

papa I never mean to be alone
all the money, girls and cars
and all the world's long cigars
papa i just want you to know they couldn't take your place

When I went home
to show em they was wrong
all that i found was his to-tombstone
somebody tell me please was i right or wrong

first i got lost then i got found, 
but the ones that i loved are in the ground 
papa I only wish you could see me now

on the second line of the intro you have a 8 and 6 on the b string which should be a 3 and 1 and the e string. Good tab, but try adding a chordal anylasis above the tab

why didn't say it was a half step down on each string
i think it is because I tried the first two chords and you wrote tham a minor second to high. You should mention the tuning is EbAbDbGbBbEb.
