[Verse 1]

    F#m          Bm            A           F#m
    Belinda was mine 'til the time that I found her
  A         Bm
    Holdin' Jim
  A            Bm
    And loving him

  F#m              Bm               A                F#m
    Then Sue came along, loved me strong, that's what I thought
  A        Bm
    Me and Sue,
  A               Bm
    But that died too.


[Chorus 1]

  A                    D          A         E
    Don't know that I will but until I can find me
                     D              A            E
    A girl who will stay and won't play games behind me

       E             F#m ---(RIFF)         RIFF
      I'll be what I am               e|-------------|
      E          F#m -------(RIFF)    B|--------2----|
      A solitary man                  G|------2---4--|
      E         F#m                   D|--4-4--------|
      Solitary man                    A|-------------|
                                      E|-------------|


[Verse 2]
(same chords)

    I've had it to here being where love's a small word
    A part time thing
    A paper ring

    I know it's been done havin' one girl who loves me
    Right or wrong
    Weak or strong


[Chorus 2]

  A                    D          A         E
    Don't know that I will but until I can find me
                       D              A            E
    The girl who will stay and won't play games behind me

       E             F#m ---(RIFF)         RIFF
      I'll be what I am               e|-------------|
      E          F#m -------(RIFF)    B|--------2----|
      A solitary man                  G|------2---4--|
      E          F#m                  D|--4-4--------|
      A solitary man                  A|-------------|
                                      E|-------------|


[Instrumental]

IMPROVISE OVER THE F#m CHORD


[Chorus 3]

  A                    D          A            E
    Don't know that I will but until love can find me
                           D              A            E
    And the girl who will stay and won't play games behind me

       E             F#m ---(RIFF)         RIFF
      I'll be what I am               e|-------------|
      E          F#m -------(RIFF)    B|--------2----|
      A solitary man                  G|------2---4--|
      E          F#m -------(RIFF)    D|--4-4--------|
      A Solitary man                  A|-------------|
                                      E|-------------|

    E          F#m --- END DEAD ON THIS CHORD STRUMMED SLOWLY.
      Solitary man

I think the Bm actually is correct.

Great tab, by the way :)

Hm, a note about the intro: I think the E 4 should be E 5. Also, I believe Cash pulls those notes, so that part of the intro would be

D 4p2---------
A ----4p2-----
E --------5p2-

and then F#m chord. The rest is good I think :)
