About this tab version
Arranged for one guitar and vocal. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Artist: The Bros. Landreth
Song: Tappin' on the Glass
Album: Let It Lie

[Chord shapes]
Esus2:     079977
B/E:       079877
F#m11/C#:  x4420x
Asus2:     x02200
E:         022100
Esus4:     022200

The intro riff continues through the song but it's easier to play Esus2 and B/E if you're singing. 
This arrangement is based primarily on live videos, especially a solo acoustic version Ariel Posen did 
playing in open E found at https://youtu.be/Hk5-ayDej1o?t=1h3m13s

[Short Verse]
Esus2                        B/E
Bend my knee at the altar of scarred and broken girls
Esus2                B/E
Be good to you honey watch your heart uncurl
Asus2                                               Esus2 B/E
Lay it on the line till there's a kink in my spine

Ohh ohh

[Verse]
Esus2           B/E
Spin me around, drownin' my head
Esus2                          B/E
Racing through my veins like a thoroughbred
Asus2                                            Esus2 B/E
Leaves me feeling dirty makes you feel sturdy


[Verse]
Esus2                              B/E
Now you say that you're mine and I know it ain't true
Esus2                        B/E
All those other boys sharin' your love too
Asus2                                            Esus2 B/E
Leaves me feeling dirty makes you feel worthy

[Chorus]
E     F#m11/C# 
Oh, I can't outrun you
Asus2           E
You're just too fast
E   F#m11/C#
I'm burning up like
    Asus2            E
I'm too close to the sun
E F#m11/C#       Asus2
I live in a fish-bowl
Asus2             E   
Swimmin' round in circles
Asus2  N.C.                      
You're tappin' on the glass

[Verse]
Esus2                         B/E
Havin' trouble sleeping' it's late when you call
Esus2                     B/E
Crying like the stars are all gonna fall
Asus2                                                  Esus2  B/E
Unless I come a runnin' babe there's always somethin'
Esus2                                 B/E
You're a wolf in pretty clothing just tryin' to sneak by
Esus2                       B/E
Anything, but the truth you know is a lie
Asus2                                              Esus2 B/E
I'm fooling myself you ain't never gonna change

[Short Pre-chorus]
F#m11/C#
Ohh ohh
Asus2
Ohh ohh

[Chorus]
E     F#m11/C# 
Oh, I can't outrun you
Asus2           E
You're just too fast
E   F#m11/C#
I'm burning up like
    Asus2            E
I'm too close to the sun
