WHY AINT I RUNNING


       Strum a measure each of the A and then D chord as shown below 
       Intro: A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D
                   A
Verse 1:  I can hear that highway calling
                   D                                               A          
          D
             As I watch the sunrise crawling across her shoulder
                  A
             This is usually goodbye
                   D                                                      A   
          D    
             And yet those words I just can't find here as I hold her

            Option: (Strum once) D
             She's like no other women

             Option: (Strum once) E
             That I have ever known before

                   (Strum once) D
             And it ain't me to see the morning sun
                   E
             From this side of the door
             A                       D                 F#    E
Chorus:  Why aInt I running, Why aint I gone
             A                               D                    F#     E
             How does she hold me Without holding on
                               D                                 E
             In love or a fight, she's stronger than strong
                                       F#                  E             D    
   
             Somethings not right if there aint nothing wrong
                      A     D                             E
             Its got me wondering,why aint I running
                               A   D  A   D 
             Why aint I gone
                A
Verse 2:  All those worlds I left behind me
                  D                                                    A      
    D
             Praying they would never find me and my freedom
                              A                                     
             But if they stood right here beside me
             D                                                            A   
   D
             They would never recognize me for all that she's done

                       D
             Once happiness was only
                           E
             Whenever I was on my own
                           D
             So now why do I feel lonely
                    E
             Any time that I'm alone

             REPEAT CHORUS

             (ONE MEASURE EACH)
SOLO:  A     D        A            E

            A     D        A            E

                E                      D                          
             No, they've never built a wall that high
                       E
             Or made a chain that strong
                       D                             
             And God ain't never made a place 
                    E
             I felt like I belong

Ain't got a lot of money but we just don't care
                                D        G
Knowing that the fun is in the gettin' there

Come tomorrow morning it'll be all gone

Verse 1 :

Bm                 D/A    Bm                   D/A ( Single D and C# Note )
She sits among the pieces of broken glass and photographs
Bm             D/A        G                   F#
Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past
Bm                   D/A   Bm                 D/A
It struck without a warning or did she just ignore the signs
Bm                    D/A       G              F#
In those dark clouds forming behind her silver lines

Refrain :

        G                      A               F#                   Bm
And the door it slammed like thunder, and the tears they fell like rain
A        G                 A            F#         Bm
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
A          G           A               F#               Bm
Oh she's drowning in emotions and she cannot reach the shore
A       G                  F#
She's alive but can she survive the Storm

Verse 2 :

Bm                  D/A   Bm             D/A
A broken jewel box dancer lies in pieces down the hall
Bm                     D/A            G               F#
She's finding out the answers don't change nothing at all
Bm                          D/A      Bm                    D/A
It's time that she stopped searching for who's to blame or what went wrong
Bm                  D/A             G                      F#
The only thing for certain is he's gone, she's got to move on

Refrain :

         G                      A               F#                   Bm
Then the door was slammed like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain
A        G                 A            F#         Bm
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
A          G           A               F#               Bm
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore

D                         A            A/C#
Someday days just roll on by without a gray cloud in the
Bm              Bm/A            G              A   ( Bm  A/C# )
sky, she keeps telling herself "I will make it on my own" and her
D                                       A              A/C#
Friend's they've all gone back to their lives thinking she will be all
Bm           Bm/A               G               F#
right as she races through the night to make it home

Refrain :

And the door it slamms like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain
A        G                 A            F#         Bm
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
A          G           A               F#               Bm
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore

She's alive but can she survive  The Storm

Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past


Comments : I hope that this transcription comes pretty close to the original
recording. The D/A Chord can be also played as a Bm7/A Chord on the piano.
But to make the song easier you can also go on and play a standard A Chord
instead of the D/A Chord. Doesn't sound much different, but is quite a lot
easier to play.

Comments :

If you play this song on a guitar only, then you should better play a standard
G7 instead of the G7/D chord, because it's easier to play and sounds better this
way, even though in the original recording the bass is playing a D at this part.

Additional Tabulature :

Even though this is a piano song, you can do a nice fingerpicking on the guitar
on it to make it sound like the original recording. This is what I figured out
to make it sound the best for me :

The Em parts can be played like the following. The piano melody is built into
this picking :


e |-0-------0-3-0---5-------7-------|-0-------0-3-0---5-------3-------|
b |-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|-0---0---0-0-0---0---0---0---0---|
g |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E |-0---------------0---------------|-0---------------0---------------|
    Em                                Em

  Play this two times during the Intro and repeat it through the Fills and the
  Outro.


The fingerpicking through the rest of the song could be something like this :


e |-----------------0---------------|---------------------------------|
b |-0-------0-------0-------0-------|-0-------0-------4-------4-------|
g |-0-------0---------------0-------|-2-------2-------4-------4-------|
D |-----2-------2---------------2---|-----1---------------4-----------|
A |-3-------------------3-----------|-2-----------2---2-----------2---|
E |---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
    Cmaj7                             B7              B

                  Rain on the roof             Time on my hands

  Continue this type of fingerpicking throughout the rest of the song

Vs. 1
E                                     A            E
Sometimes I tell you the way that I feel,
E                                 B   A
I swear that I'm goin' crazy,
E                                     A                E
Keep tellin' myself it aint that big a deal,
E                                       B    E
It's better than pushin' up daisies,

Vs. 2
E                                A                E
I felt the arrow from deaths fatal quiver,
E                                       B       E
Come so close it actually grazed me,
                                                   E       
                             A     E
I've bled the blood and I've felt the cold shiver,
E                        B   E
God only knows how he saved me,

Chours
A                                        E
There's two dates in time that they'll carve on your stone,
     A                       B
And everyone knows what they mean,
A                                                 E
But whats more important is the time that is spent,
         A            B           E
in that little dash there in between,
      A              B        E
That little dash there in between.

Vs. 3

Sometimes my heart is as true as a dove,
Sometimes my heart it betrays me,
So I draw my sword for to fight for my love,
But without a whisper she saves me,
Vs. 4
My mother died but somehow she keeps living,
She'll never cease to amaze me,
Now dad turns his back on each day that he's given
Cause he'd rather be pushin up daisies.

Repeat chours untill you get tired of it.

Verse 1 : For a change I headed south across the border
                    G          C         G       D
          For the pesos and a different horse to ride
                  D                G  C     D
          I'd be back to make the rodeo in Waco

                   G                             A

Comments : Play the D/G Chord at the end of the solo like a standard
D-Chord, but put the thumb of your hand on the third fret of the thick
E-String and play a G in the bass with it.

When You Come Back To Me Again

          C               Am
There's a ship out on the ocean
       F            G
At the mercy of the sea
          C
It's been tossed about
         Am
Lost and broken
F                G
wandering aimlessly
    Bb              Am                G
And god somehow you know that ship is me

                 C               Am
'Cause there's a lighthouse in a harbor
F               G
Shining faithfully
            C
Pouring its light out
           Am
Across the water
           F                G
Where this sinking soul can see
     Bb                Am                G
That someone out there still believes in me

     C
On a prayer
     Am
In a song
            F
I hear your voice
                        Dm   G
And it keeps me hanging on
        C
Raining down
            Am
Against the wind
             F
I'm reaching out
                           Dm
'Til we reach the circle's edge
              G           C
When you come back to me again

          C                  Am
There's a moment that we all come to
           F
In our own time
            G
And our own space
               C
Where all that we've done
       Am
We can undo
       F                    G
If our heart's in the right place

     C
On a prayer
     Am
In a song
            F
I hear your voice
                        Dm   G
And it keeps me hanging on
        C
Raining down
            Am
Against the wind
             F
I'm reaching out
                           Dm
'Til we reach the circle's edge
             G           F
And you come back to me again

     C
And again I see
   Dm             G
My yesterday's in front of me
F                C
Unfolding like a mystery
       F                                G
You're changing all that is and used to be

     D
On a prayer
     Bm
In a song
            G
I hear your voice
                        Em   A
And it keeps me hanging on
        D
Raining down
            Bm
Against the wind
             G
I'm reaching out
                           Em
'Til we reach the circle's edge
              A           D
When you come back to me again
              A           D
When you come back to me again
