If Tab

Vince Tampio

OK, I thought The other tab was kind of tough with thatF# chord. So I thought to just 
the bottom string up to F#. It makes the tab a whole lot easier. On the last E chord, just 
play the bottom string. Thats all.

Intro:

This part is played on a 6-string acoustic guitar

   Do

Lyrics:

If I were a swan, I'd be gone...
If I were a train, I'd be late... and
If I were a good man,
I'd talk with you more often than I do.

If I were asleep, I could dream...
If I were afraid, I could hide... and
If I go insane,
Please don't put your wires in my brain.

If I were a moon, I'd be cool...
If I were a rule, I would bend... and
If I were a good man,
I'd understand the spaces between friends.

If I were alone, I would cry...
If I were with you, I'd be home, and dry, and
If I go insane,
Will you still let me join in with the game.

If I were a swan, I'd be gone
If I were a train, Id be late again
If I were a good man
I'd talk to you more often than I do

*End on an E chord for "do"

Main Solo:

This is done with an electric guitar with drive distortion played with a slide
