Yeah a big weekend.  |-2 / 9--| If you don't run, you rust.
                     |-3 / 10-|
                     |-2 / 9--|

( Repeat the same pattern for the next Verses)

Well I may shake your hand but I won't know your name. The joke in your language don't
out the same. There's times when I'm down and there's nothing to blame.

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust. Yeah a big weekend. If you don't run, you rust.

I can work, I can travel, sleep anywhere, cross every border with nothing to declare.
can look back babe, but it's best not to stare.

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust. Yeah a big weekend. If you don't
run, you rust.

****Note !!!! for the lead he just playing around with the D chord doing some hammer ons
stuff with the fist string them he swithes to Am and does the same with the second
it is easy to fuigure out !!

 the second part he does this when the hermonica kicks in


Hope you enjoy !!!
