“The Last To Know”

This is basically a variation of Pachelbel’s Canon in D
Just listen to the song for the strumming pattern, if you can’t get it, it’s easy
enough to make one up on your own.

Capo on 3rd fret

Chords used:
A, E, F#m, C#, D, D2*, E2* 

(*See Below)

On the “D2”, just slide your ring finger over one, so its basically a stretched out D

| |-------|----O--|-------|-------
| |-------|-------|-------|-------

On The “E2”, just place your pinky down on the third fret, and it only requires being strummed once.

| |-------|-------|-------|-------
| |-------|-------|-------|-------

(please let me know if these chords have names)

Verse 1

A            E
Every single time 
                 F#m                C#         
I see you in the street as you walk by
                      D             A
You’re shuffling your feet as if to say
      E      A       E
You’d rather die.

Verse 2 (repeat chord structure from verse 1)

Than live so far from home
I wonder is that why you’re so alone?
And if you found a place to call your own
Would you be fine?


And you tell me that something good
   A               F#m
Is bound to happen soon
    D                  D(mod)           E    E2(strum once)     
And meanwhile you just wait inside your room

Verse 3 (Same as 1,2)

Do you find it odd
That you are not as strong as you once thought?
And even if you run you might get caught
So you won’t go
And you’ll be the last to know

[piano solo + outro same as verses]

A, E, F#m, C#, D, A, E, A, E x2

and even if you run you might get caught
so you won’t go
and you’ll be the last to know

This is truly my first tab, I hope it’s alright, and if anyone has any feedback or
corrections, email me at devan.chick@gmail.com I tried to make it as error free as
possible, I’m sick of reading tabs that have horrible spelling, its just a pet peeve
of mine. If you have any info on what I call the “E2 and D2” chords, please let me know,
I taught myself guitar, so I’m not very musically inclined when it comes to technical
stuff like this.

PS, does anyone else think that the beginning of this song sounds mysteriously like
the beginning of the theme song from the cartoon show “Doug?”
