Send Me On My Way - Rusted Root
Tuning: Standard

Right, first of all this is my own interpretation of the song so no whining "That's not
because this is written the way I play it and therefore it is right. This is written to
finger picked but if your a die hard plectrum fan I suppose you could just play it nice 
sloppy.

Firstly here's the intro
e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3-----------------------------|
A|-3-------------3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3-----------------------------|
A|-3-------------3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then there's the verse
e|-----3-----------3-----------3-----------3-------0-----------------------|
B|-1---1-------1---1-------1---1-------1---1---1h3-------------------------|
G|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-----------------------------|
D|---------2-----------2-----------2---------------------------------------|
A|-3-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----3-3-----0---------------3-3-----------3-3---------------------------|

D|---------2-----------2-----------2---------------------------------------|
A|-3-----------3-----------3-----------3-----------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----3-3-----0---------------3-3-----------3-3---------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-1h3---3-3p1---1-1---1-1-------1---1-1---------------------------|
G|---2-----------------2-----0---------0---0---------0---------------------|
D|-3-------------3-3---------------0p2-----------0p2-----------------------|
A|-------------------------3-------------3---------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the chorus
e|-----------------3-----------------------3-------------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-------------------------|
G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|
D|---------2-----------------------2---------------------------------------|
A|-0---------0-------------0---------0-------------------------------------|
E|-------------3---1-------------------3---1-------------------------------|

e|-----------------3-----------------------3-------------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-------------------------|
G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|
D|---------2-----------------------2---------------------------------------|
A|-0---------0-------------0---------0-------------------------------------|
E|-------------3---1-------------------3---1-------------------------------|

 And here's the "Send me on my way" bit
e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|

B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3-----------------------------|
A|-3-------------3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After that the verse kicks up agan, but this time strummed
e|-0-0-0-3-0---0-0-0-0-3-0---0-0-0-0-3-0---0-0-0-0-3-0---0-----------------|

E|---------------------------x-x-x-x-x-x---x-x-x-x-x-x---x-----------------|

And another chorus
e|-----------------3-----------------------3-------------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-------------------------|
G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|

G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|
D|---------2-----------------------2---------------------------------------|
A|-0---------0-------------0---------0-------------------------------------|
E|-------------3---1-------------------3---1-------------------------------|

Followed by another "Send me on my way" bit
e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|

e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|

G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3-----------------------------|
A|-3-------------3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

There's a percussion interlude here lasting eight bars

And then another chorus
e|-----------------3-----------------------3-------------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-------------------------|
G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|

e|-----------------3-----------------------3-------------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-1---1-1-----0---0---0h1-------------------------|
G|---0-----------0---0-------0-----------0---0-----------------------------|
D|---------2-----------------------2---------------------------------------|
A|-0---------0-------------0---------0-------------------------------------|
E|-------------3---1-------------------3---1-------------------------------|

Which is followed by a kind of "last chorus" if you like
e|-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|
B|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|

A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-------------------------|
E|-------------1-1-1-1-1-1-------------3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|

e|-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|
B|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------|

A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-------------------------|
E|-------------1-1-1-1-1-1-------------3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------|

And then back to the very first riff
e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3-------------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1-------------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2---------------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3-----------------------------|
A|-3-------------3---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----3-3-----------3-3-----0-----3-3-----0-----3--(0)--------------------|
B|-1---1-1-------1---1-1-1h3---1---1-1-1h3---1---1--(1)--------------------|
G|---0---------0---0-------------2-------------2----(0)--------------------|
D|---------0p2-----------2-----3-------------3------(2)--------------------|
A|-3-------------3----------------------------------(3)--------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I like to end the song there by playing the bracketed chord
but if you realy want to play the full thing just play another verse and end on the
chord.

As i said at the start this is how I play the song, if you want to play it more like the
Root version then just take bits or chop and change to your desired preference.

All I changed from the original version to this version is I made it sound a little
(as not all of us have a band to pick up the slack) and some less tasking rhythms in
that were harder to sing and play at the same time and the occasional speeding up of a 
when I got bored of it. Here's the lyrics if you want to sing along

Well I would like to reach out my hand
Won't say to you, won't tell you to run
You know what they say about the young

Well lift me up with golden hands
Might say to you, might tell you to run
You know what they say about the young

Well I'd like to hold my little hand
How we'll run an' how we'll crawl, well
I would like to hold my little hand
How we'll run an' how we'll crawl

Send me on m'way
Send me on m'way
Send me on m'way
Send me on my way


There's a nice little soloing opportunity over the "last chorus" as the chord sequence
easy to improvise over.
And there you go, enjoy.
