LONG AWAY
(Brian May/Queen.  From the Albumn _A Day at the Races_.)

E7sus4 = 022230

[1]
    A                E         D                     A  E
You might believe in heaven, I would not care to say
    A                 E             D                 A
For every star in heaven, there's a sad soul here today
     D                        Bm
Wake up in the morning with a good face
E                     A
stare at the moon all day
D                        Bm
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
     E                E7sus4
does anyone care anyway?
    A                    E
For all the prayers in heaven
   D                   F    A  E  D  E7sus4   A
so much of life's this way

[Chorus:]
     A
     Did we leave our way behind us?
     (A)
     Such a long, long way behind us?
     D
     Who knows when, now who knows where?
     A
     Where the light of day might find us?
     D7               A
     Look for the day.

Take heart, my friend, we love you
though it seems like you're alone
A million lights above you
smile down upon your home
Hurry put your troubles in a suitcase
Come let the new child play
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
I'm leaving here, I'm gone away
For all the stars in heaven
  D                 F                    A
I would not live, I could not live, this way

     A
     Did we leave our way behind us?
     Such a long, long time behind us?
     D
     Leave it for some hopeless lane
     A
     Such a long, long way
     Such a long, long way
                           A7
     Such a long, long way
     A   D            F                      A
     I'm looking for, still looking for that day

it sounds good on its own...but there's something not quite right about when it's played with the song....probably something with the tuning...

Nice tab! =D

And yes (responding to earlier comments), the song is actually in Ab, one step down (that's why it doesn't sound right when played along with the song). Tune your entire guitar down a semitone for it to sound right with the song but it sounds good played this way as well! ^^
