Solo (Added April 15, 2008)

*Thought I’d add a solo that I tabbed. 
It’s not exactly like any of their albums but it
sounds like the album Any Time Now the most 
(you could probably play along to it half decently).
Don't crit this harshly please because 
it’s just something I thought 
I’d do to guide people in the solo. :)

Up to here ^ differs from the album Any Time Now but you could probably still play along.

The ending (below) could probably be played along with Anytime Now from 6:01 on till the

Lyrics
Down the road there was a man walking, walking
Knapsack round his back radio talking, talking
And his blue suede shoes are covered in mud, but it no matter cause the boys on the run


He's the wanderer looking for his long lost home
He's only got one place to go
He's wandering and wondering when to go home
He's not alone, not alone, not alone

Feet been walking for a thousand years, trying to drive away those fears, but no
Well then he picked up and then he went down south
Dad said nothing and mom shut her mouth

Well, he never thought too much, just thought he could heal with his touch
For those who need help and more love
And when love came around I heard the sound
Wanderers wandering all round the town
But no, they go

He's the wanderer looking for his long lost home
He's only got one place to go
He's wandering and wondering when to go home
He's not alone, not alone, not alone
Hey, he's the wanderer looking for his long lost home
He's only got one fine place to go
He's wandering wondering when to go home
He's not alone, not alone, not alone

We wan wan wandered along, grabbed our friends and we move along
We won won won the war, grabbed our guns and we ran for the door

Excellent tab for an excellent song by an amazing band my man!! Definitely one of my favorite OAR songs as well. Nice job of the improvised solo too bro. Only thing that is missing and I'm trying to find it via live performances is the chords or how they're playing the chords right at the end of the "pre chorus".."He's only got one place to go-oh-oh-oh..." The build up right before the chorus. It sounds like a simple step progression or maybe just one chord repeated. If you know how it's played please enlighten me.. Thanks again for the tab/music.
