Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo on 3. Second tab ever, be sure to read the notes at the bottom after you have played along with the song!
You can finger your way through this song, perhaps add in some strumming during the instrumental part. I pick
in a 5 - 2 - 4 - 3 pattern, but I'm no expert and it doesn't exactly sound like what they're doing. Use your
imagination and have fun.

[Intro]
C F G


[Verse]

C
When I was younger 
F              C  G  Am (Or: C  E/C  Am)*
All I had to do 
                       G
Was hold your hand and drink you in 
F
make some time for you
       Am                       G
I went stumbling through the darkness
      F
Of a thousand half-lit bars
        C                                   G
I don't know what I was running from but I must've run to far


[Chorus]
         F
Now I'm reaching
         F
Back for something
         Am
But I'm coming
         Am
Up with nothing
       G                          F
It's a long long way from where I was to where I am
F
God have mercy on a runaway man
F                   G   C        F  G
God have mercy on a runaway man


[Verse]

C
Key under your doormat
F                          C  G  Am (Or: C   E/C   Am)
The porch light you left lit **
                      G               F
The years dragged on burned away just like a cigarette
Am                       G
The price of all those nights
       F
Never worth the mornings cost
   C                             G
Oh no amount of wishing's gonna bring back what I lost


[Chorus]
         F
Now I'm reaching
         F
Back for something
         Am
But I'm coming
         Am
Up with nothing
       G                          F
It's a long long way from where I was to where I am
F
God have mercy on a runaway man
F                   G    C
God have mercy on a runaway man


[Instrumental]
F    Am   F    Am
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

       G                          F
It's a long long way from where I was to where I am
F
God have mercy on a runaway man
F                   G    C
God have mercy on a runaway man
F                
God have mercy on a runaway man
F                   G    C
God have mercy on a runaway man


*: I think the C  E/C  Am sounds good or perhaps even better but who am I. Certainly not a virtuoso. 
**: Not sure what they sing there..
Let me know what you think of this tab. I did it all by ear and my ears aren't tuned in on guitar chords as
much as the really skilled guitar players out there. If you think this tab needs some change be sure to post
it so we can all enjoy Ilse de Lange and her Common Linnets the way any guitar player would want to! 

JA MAN, GAAF MAN!
HEEL LEUK!

Good tab! Sounds excellent!
I believe they sing "The porchlight you left lit" ;)

Cheers
