About this tab version
This is kind of 3 tabs in 1 song,i have included intro and verse 1 which use clean electric guitar,then 1st instrumental into verse 2 using distortion/compression guitar ,then into verse 3 which uses accoustic guitar/clean electric.Using the maj7 s and m6 sounds good and no capo is required.On the link it is easier to do A5, D5 , C5,but its not as accurate.
Strumming () Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No

Dmaj7   Gm     Dmaj7    Gm

    [Verse 1]
Dmaj7                     A/D  G6              G
Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever,
Dmaj7            A/D  G6         G    Dmaj7
Never seeing no one, nice again like you,
Gm6   Dmaj7  Gm6   Dmaj7   Gm6
Mama  you,   mama  you.

  Am   D   Am   D   Am   

    [Verse 2]
Am                        D
If I ever get out of here,Thought of giving it all away
Am                      D
To a registered charity,All I need is a pint a day
Am
If I ever get out of here(If I ever get out of here)

    [Link]
G  A  C  D  E  G       D   C
G  A  C  D  E  G       D   C
C   Fmaj7      
C   Fmaj7

    [Verse 3]
          C                          Fmaj7                     C   
Well,the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun,
          C                    Fmaj7                                Em                            
And the first one said to the second one there I hope you're having fun.

    [Chorus]
G            C   Em   C      Am
Band on the run, band on the run.
         Fmaj7          C               Fmaj7
And the jailer man and sailor sam were searching every one
        C    Fmaj7   C    Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C    Fmaj7
For the band on the run,         band on the run,
C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7
band on the run,          band on the run

    [Verse 4]
         C                 Fmaj7                             C       
Well,the undertaker drew a heavy sigh seeing no one else had come,
      C                        Fmaj7                                Em
And a bell was ringing in the village square for the rabbits on the run.

    [Chorus]
G            C   Em   C      Am
Band on the run, band on the run.
         Fmaj7          C               Fmaj7
And the jailer man and sailor sam were searching every one
        C    Fmaj7   C    Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C    Fmaj7
For the band on the run,         band on the run,

    [Instrumental 2]
Em  G   C      Em  C  Am
Fmaj7   C      Fmaj7  Fmaj7

    [Chorus]
        C    Fmaj7   C    Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C    Fmaj7
Yeah the band on the run,         band on the run,
C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7
band on the run,          band on the run

     [Verse 5]
           C                       Fmaj7                        C
Well, the night was falling as the desert world began to settle down.
       C                             Fmaj7                             Em  
In the town they're searching for us every where, but we never will be found.

    [Chorus]
G            C   Em   C      Am
Band on the run, band on the run.
         Fmaj7           Cmaj7               Fmaj7
And the county judge who held a grudge will search for everymore
        C    Fmaj7   C    Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C    Fmaj7
For the band on the run,         band on the run,
C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7  C     Fmaj7
band on the run,          band on the run

    [Outro]
Em   G   C
