[Verse 1]
G
Heard it from a friend who
C
Heard it from a friend who
D                                       G      Dsus D G
Heard it from another you been messin' around

They say you got a boy friend
C
You're up there every weekend
D                                              G     (riff 1)
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

G
But I know the neighborhood
C
And talk is cheap when the story is good
D                                     G     (riff 1)
And the tales grow taller on down the line
G
But I'm telling you, babe
C
That I don't think it's true, babe
D                              G    G   G/F#
And even if it is keep this in mind

[Refrain]
Em
You take it on the run baby
C
If that's the way you want it baby
D                      G      G  G/F#
Then I don't want you around
Em
I don't believe it
C
Not for a minute
Am                                         D   Dsus  D  G
You're under the gun so you take it on the run

[Verse 2]
G
You're thinking up your white lies
C
You're putting on your bedroom eyes
D                                            G   (riff 1)
You say you're coming home but you won't say when
G
But I can feel it coming
C
If you leave tonight keep running
D                            G      G  G/F#
And you need never look back again

[Refrain]
Em
You take it on the run baby
C
If that's the way you want it baby
D                      G      G  G/F#
Then I don't want you around
Em
I don't believe it
C
Not for a minute
Am                                         D   Dsus  D  G
You're under the gun so you take it on the run

[Solo]
(It will help if you have a guitar with 24 frets with this,
  otherwise you'll be doing some SERIOUS string bending!)
  I'll admit that the tab is NOT exact, but if you listen to the track
  you'll get a better idea of the timing/picking.

I looked over the solo yet, but I like the way you did this tab; main guitar parts and chords/lyrics. Thanks.
