ANYWHERE IS BETTER THAN HERE (Mary Karlzen)
-------------------------------------------
[I find it hard to believe an acoustic guitarist would _want_ to play
 B chords, but it doesn't sound like she uses a capo in this song.]
[Where I wrote "TAB," that means there's tablature for that part.]

E   E   E         E
        One, two, three
E   E   A   A   E   E   A   A
[instrumental (TAB)]

E             E               E           E                  A   A   A   A
  I ride the long dark highway, the sign says keep to the right  [TAB]
E             E               E        E                   A   A   A   A
  I ride the long dark highway in the cool black of the night  [TAB]
B          B                    A                   A
  I know things have got to get better when I get there
B             B      A - Asus2 [hold]
  'Cause anywhere is          better than...

   E           B                   A   B
...here;  Anywhere is better than here
E               B            A             B
  And where I'm going, boy, I don't really care
F#m           F#m             B              B
  'Cause I've been there and I'll be there again
       E        E                     A         B      (E)
But tonight, anywhere is better than here with you in my sight
     E      E   A   A     E   E   A   A
(..my sight) [instrumental; same as intro (TAB)]

I'm riding fast and low, with his memory right behind
There's a new life waiting for me, and I'm a-gonna make it mine
And I don't care if the sun don't shine out there
'Cause anywhere is better than here

Anywhere is better than here
And where I'm going, boy, I don't really care
'Cause I've been there and I'll be there again
But tonight, anywhere is better than here with you in my

G#m        G#m           A            A
  And I've never felt so strong and alive
F#m       F#m            B [hold]
  Than to pack up, leave you, and drive

E   E   A   A     E   E   A   A
[guitar solo (TAB)]
F#m  F#m   B   B     F#m  F#m   B   B
[guitar solo (TAB)]

I ride the long dark highway, dawn is coming, I see the light
And if I start all over, this time, this time I'll get it right
Don't ask me where I'm going when you don't really care
'Cause anywhere is better than here

Anywhere is better than here
And where I'm going, boy, I don't really care
'Cause I've been there and I'll be there again
But tonight, anywhere is better than here with you in my sight
