This is the title track off Mick's new album, unreal song hope you enjoy playing it!

I'll only write out the music for the first verse and chorus as it is the same for the
rest of the song and i'll put in the links between the verses where necessary.

During the chorus I think it sounds better to play the D with the high E sting open,
without holding the string down so it looks like this.

e|---0--|
B|---3--|
G|---2--|
D|---0--|
A|---0--|
E|---X--|



Intro: | G | F | C | (x2)


Verse

G                               C        G
You see them sailor boys comin' down the line,
               Em                  G            C             G
They've got it right, they're only here boy for one hell of a time.
G                                    C      G
You've spent your whole life turnin' red to blue,
                  Em                G
Now what have you got, what can you show me,
       C          G
Brings any joy to you?


Chorus

         Am                 C              D                Em
You keep runnin' , you keep runnin' you go run on down that line,
                 Am                   D                   Em
They'll all pair off, they'll fall in love and they'll do fine.


Verse

I seen you last night you fallin' round the town,
It ain't that hard to find some reason for you to hang around.
You hear that silver tongue, it's drippin' beads o' charm,
You dread that fool, for when you meet him, he's gonna do you harm.


Chorus

He'll do you harm but you keep runnin', you go run on down that line.
He'll be passin', he will pass, you let him by.


Link

| G | F | C | G | F | C |


Verse

That loneliness it drove you round the bend,
You don't know why that had to happen, you only know it did.
You're dreamin' of her you're cravin' all her charms,
You can't but cry when you see her in that sailor's arms.


Chorus

She kept runnin', she kept runnin', God she ran on down that line,
She messed around, she settled down, and she did fine.


Verse

Tell me a story, go on tell me about the pain,
Oh California, good on ya, you're sleepin' in the rain,
You sought that heartache to see how it felt,
You hapless fool, you couldn't help it, you did this to yourself,
you did this to yourself.


Outro

| G | F | C | (x2)

| G | F | C | (x2) - Slightly different tempo.

| C | C-B-A | G |



That's another one of Mick's classic songs done and dusted,
next i'll be doing either Ships in The Night or No Way To Live.

Thanks for looking at this tab.

Any chance of Near or Far chords please? I'm finding it impossible to find and it's an absolute gem.

Thanks,
Ryan

Colin, never got round to seeing your above comment from way back when.

Many thanks. Chords worked a treat.

Was just wondering if you had any plans of chording the brilliant By The Rule album?
