                                   Version 1.0
                                 30th August 2012
                             -----------------------

                             Tablature Symbols Used:


 (/)       -  Legato Slide (Blank space indicates length of slide)
 \         -  Slide Down to/Down From
 /         -  Slide Up to/Up From
 ( )       -  Ghost Note/Tied Note/Implied Note
 REST      -  Rest and Sustain Rest for Duration of Blank Space
              The word "REST" will be used sparingly, i.e. only once per riff
 5h7       -  Hammer-On
 7p5       -  Pull-Off
 *         -  Staccato Note (Bring Indicated Note to an Abrupt End)


                                  ==========
                                  Song Notes
                                  ==========

     Although the bassist plays a 5-string bass the song is playable on a
     standard 4-string; no action takes place on the B-string at all.  To
   make the tab more accessible to the majority of players I opted to simply
   remove the B-string from the tab entirely.  Let me know if you think this
                               is bad practice.

(And the road becomes my bride)
And the road becomes my bride!
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need

And with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave
Rover, wanderer, nomad, vagabond
Call me what you will

(And the earth becomes my throne)
And the earth becomes my throne!
I adapt to the unknown
Under wandering stars I've grown
By myself but not alone
I ask no one

And my ties are severed clean
The less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign
Rover, wanderer, nomad, vagabond
Call me what you will
