Subject: TAB:  KIng's X, Fall On Me


from Brian King, gt6851a@prism.gatech.edu


 FALL ON ME   BY   KING'S X

                        from Gretchen Goes To Nebraska

Transcribed/Deciphered by Brian King

Notes:  I have made this transcription for one guitar.
There is an alternate fill in the third verse. I have included
timing notes above the staff, using the standard system of
1e&a 2e&a 3e&a 4e&a, where each one is a sixteenth note (or rest.)
Therefore, 1&2&3&4& means straight eighth notes, and 1234 means
straight quarter notes.  The numbers coincide with the onset of
a note or rest.  Triplets are noted by: 1 b c, 2 b c... where each
note is a third of a beat.  The time signature for Fall On Me is
4/4, noted at the beginning of each staff.  NOTE:  STANDARD TUNING.
Have fun.  My Internet address is: gt6851a@prism.gatech.edu.
Call me if you need help.  Does anyone want a BASS TRANSCRIPTION for
this song?  If so, let me know...

A boy's own story, grows up to be a man.
He catches the fall, he's given a second chance.
Lightning flashes east to west.

Love is falling on (pain), don't fall on me (pain).
Don't fall on me (pain), don't fall on me.
Love, fall on me.

VERSE 2:
Hand to hand, breath to breath.
The boy to man, spirit and death.
Lightning flashes east to west.

REPEAT CHORUS

Love, fall on me.
