                           BETTER IN THE LONG RUN by Miranda Lambert
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chords by: Vilmos Vas
Tuning: Standard, Capo on the 1st fret

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my approach on this great tune by Miranda Lambert. Compared to the other tabs, I 
changed the chord voicings, because I missed the depth playing this song with the capo on the 
3rd fret. It is not easier to play the song this way, it just sounds better in my opinion. 

The other change is that the first two chords in the other tabs are originally one chord 
(F major is what you hear) with two different voicings. I thought it is important to keep the 
bass note the same because it represents the sound of the original record better. Another change
is that I missed one extra chord in the previous tabs at the end of the song, so I included it.

I hope you like my version, have fun with this wonderful song!

[VERSE 1]

A                                E
Cheap red wine straight out of a coffee cup
B                                  E
One more down, to drink you off my mind
     A                                    E
Lord knows I've tried a thousand times to give you up
        B           B/A
But its closing time
       B/G#         B/F#
and we both know why

[CHORUS]
E
I'm just too selfish I guess
G#7
I know you're tired and restless
C#m            B                 F#
It's no surprise we've come undone
E                             B
But I can't unlove you just because
                           Esus4 E   Esus4 E
You say it's better in the long  run

[VERSE 2] 
A                            E
We've been driving down this highway
          B                         E
Now we're out of gas' too far outta town
   A                              E
Oh here we are all tangled up and sideways
           B           B/A
You're all broken down,
         B/G#          B/F#   
yeah I'm breaking down
 
[CHORUS]
E
I'm just too selfish I guess

But I can't unlove you just because
                           Esus4 E   Esus4 E
You say it's better in the long  run

[BRIDGE] 
   C#m
Oh maybe somewhere a little down the line
     A
I'll get a little better leaving us behind
      E                  E
Maybe someday, Oh I'll be fine
       C#m
Oh and you'll move on and I will too
    A                                 B B/A
But still I don't see gettin over you

Oh, no, no, no

E
I'm just too selfish I guess

It's no surprise we've come undone
