                             That ol' wind - Garth Brooks
Tabbed by: Joel Bergström, Sundsvall, Sweden, 2010-05-01

Capo on 2nd fret.

Tuning: Standard

Intro & vers. This is the basic pattern, he doesn't follow it the entire vers
but this will get you started.

   D                            Bm

    G                                   D/A               A

She dropped her boy at school on time 
One less worry on her mind 
          G                        D/A     A     
Now it's off to work and on the radio 
Come's an old familiar song 
And then the D.J.'s voice comes on 
               G                                   D/A         A
And say's he's back in town tonight for one last show 

Her eyes well up with tears 
God could it be it's been ten years 
Since that Autumn night outside the county fair 
When two strangers shared a night 
And in the darkness found a light 
That to this day is still alive and burning there 

Bm             G             D/A       A
He asked her twice to come along
Bm             G                    D/A     A
They said good-bye at the break of dawn 
'Cause you can't hold back the wind 
If it's meant to be again 
          G                                  D/A       A
Then someday he'll find his way back to her arms 

The marquee misspelled his name 
And not too many people came 
But that didn't matter to them 
They laughed and loved all through the night 
And as they faced the morning light 
They found themselves standing there again 

And he asked her twice to come along 
They said good-bye at the break of dawn 
As his bus left out she cried 
With him standing by her side 
That ol' wind had once again found its way home 
Someday he'll tell her about the money he hid 
And someday she'll tell him that the boy is his kid 
But for right now they're both in love 
The only thing they're thinkin' of 
Is that they're finally where their hearts have always been

During the last line of the verse and chorus, the chords are G A D, not G D/A A.

There should also be the chords written out for the other verses and choruses.
