I don't have the intro worked out; maybe someone else would post it?  Sounds
like he's picking through the C, Dm, and F, but I'm not sure enough about
it to say for certain.

Chord progression for the verse is C-Dm-F-C, and for the chorus is Bb-F-C.

C = x32010      
Dm = xx0231     
F = 133211      
Bb = x13331     
G = 355433

                       Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)
                                by M=94tley Cr=81e

C                     Dm
We could sail away or catch a freight train
     F                C
Or a rocket ship into outer space
        C                   Dm
Nothin' left to do too many things were said
   F                      C
To ever make it feel like yesterday did
C                             Dm
Seasons must change, separate paths, separate ways
      F                        C
If we blame it anything, let's blame it on the rain
  C                      Dm
I knew it all along, I'd have to write this song
   F                               C
To young to fall in love, guess we knew it all along

         Bb             F
That's alright, that's OK
We were walkin' through some youth, smilin' through some pain
         Bb             F
That's alright, that's OK
               C        <- (go back to verse progression with this C)
Let's turn the page

My friends called today, down from L.A.
They were shootin' pool all night and sleepin' half the day
They said I could crash if I could find my own way
I told them you were leaving on a bus to go away

That's alright, that's OK
We were two kids in love tryin' to find our way
That's alright, that's OK
Held our dreams in our hands, let our minds run away
That's alright, that's OK
We were walkin' through some youth, smilin' through some pain
That's alright, let's turn the page
And remember what I say, and it goes this way

C           D
Girl, don't go away mad         (sing this part with the ending chord
F              C                 progression that follows)
Girl, just go away!

I'm not really great at chord names, so I'll tab out the ending part, but
the root chords are bar C, D, & F chords with a little pinky action on the
B string (whatever that chord is).

It's all wrong. It's not tuned correctly, and the chords are off.

A pretty good tab plays really well with a capo on 2nd fret. Good job. Although Mick tunes down one whole step D G C F A D
