                    Band On The Run - Paul McCartney & Wings                   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: SpiketheFerret
Tuning: Standard

This is how I play the song, sounds amazing on acoustic and pretty slick on a 
lightly over-driven electric as well.

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash
                       C
As we fell into the sun,
        C                     Fmaj7
And the first one said to the second one there
                      Em
I hope you're having fun.
G           C    Em           A

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh
                           C
Seeing no one else had come,
      C                       Fmaj7
And a bell was ringing in the village square
                       Em
For the rabbits on the run.

This is good but when it does the Em G C Em C Am. There's another guitar part, I was hoping to see that part of it.
