About this tab version
The tab by Steve is good but the chord changes were slightly off, the format of lyrics was incorrect, it used the chord names without capo (which was difficult for beginners using a capo) and also it didn't contain the correct rap lyrics (which were unformatted and difficult to read). Also had a missing lyric ("Come on, come on" before the rap part) and I have added the strum pattern I use, which was requested by a commentor on Steve's tab.. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Please note: this song is played with a Capo on the first fret
using the chords below to sound like the recorded version.

The progression is played throughout the entire song. I occasionally
change the strum pattern to add variation/maintain interest.



Strum Pattern:
[1   2  a3e& 4 & ] 
 D   D  DUDU D D

or occasionally vary it with

[1 & 2 &a3e& 4 & ]
 D D D UDUDU D D


Intro: D A C G


Verse 1
D                      A   
A lonely mother gazing out of her window
        C                            G
Staring at a son that she just can't touch
          D                             A
If at any time he's in a jam, she'll be by his side
               C                       G
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much

D                              A
But all the praying just ain't helping at all
                C                            G
'cause he can't seem to keep his self out of trouble
               D                               A
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
        C                       G
Another body laying cold in the gutter

Listen to me


Chorus:
D                A
Don't go chasing waterfalls
                    C
Please stick to the rivers
                          G
And the lakes that you're used to
                   D
I know that you're gonna have it your way
   A
Or nothing at all
                   C               G
But I think you're moving too fast


Verse 2
D                     A   
Little precious has a natural obsession
        C                        G
For temptation but he just can't see
D                             A   
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
        C                        G
But all he can say is "baby it's good to me"

D                           A
One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
       C                         G
But he doesn't recognize his own face
D                           A
His health is fading and he doesn't know why
          C                     G
3 letters took him to his final resting place

Y'all don't hear me?


Chorus [x2]:
D                A
Don't go chasing waterfalls
                    C
Please stick to the rivers
                          G
And the lakes that you're used to
                   D
I know that you're gonna have it your way
   A
Or nothing at all
                   C               G
But I think you're moving too fast

D                A
Don't go chasing waterfalls
                    C
Please stick to the rivers
                          G
And the lakes that you're used to
                   D
I know that you're gonna have it your way
   A
Or nothing at all
                   C               G
But I think you're moving too fast

Come on, come on


Verse 3 [Rap Part]
D            
I seen a rainbow yesterday
             A
But too many storms have come and gone
                                     C
Leavin' a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray?
           G
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

D
And like His promise is true
                       A
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
                         C
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
               G
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries

D
My only bleedin' hope            
Is for the folk who can't cope
             A
With such an endurin' pain
That it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain
C
Who's to blame for tootin' 'caine into your own vein?
G
What a shame you shoot and aim for someone else's brain
D
You claim the insane and name this day in time
                          A
For fallin' prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
C
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
                   G
In hopes of comin' true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Chorus [x2]

D                A
Don't go chasing waterfalls
                    C
Please stick to the rivers
                          G
And the lakes that you're used to
                   D
I know that you're gonna have it your way
   A
Or nothing at all
                   C               G
But I think you're moving too fast

D                A
Don't go chasing waterfalls
                    C
Please stick to the rivers
                          G
And the lakes that you're used to
                   D
I know that you're gonna have it your way
   A
Or nothing at all
                   C               G
But I think you're moving too fast


And that's it! Have fun :)
