The Tame, The Half-Born, The Wild and You
Ron Hawkins
album: The Secret of my Excess

transcribed by Kevin Cumming


intro: G Am Em C x2
NOTE: When playing Am in the intro, start off with the B string open and
      then hammer on the 1st fret for the same sound that Ron has.

    G                Am           Em                    C
If Carolyn called me up today I'd hang up the phone and walk away
G                     Am                C                      D
It's not that I don't care anymore but time changes locks on a lot of
doors
    Em                  F                Am   D
And I know what you're thinking and it's true
Em                 F                Am  D
Sometimes there is nothing you can do
    G                   Am          Em              C
But there's a time that I recall a purple street in Lisbon
G                Am               C               D
She was speaking dreams to me and I thought I was listening
    G             Am          Em               C
But I was fifteen yards away before I felt the distance
G            Am                 C               D
She cried in Augusta street and stared into the windows
    Em                F                 Am   D
And I know what she's thinking and it's true
Em                 F               Am   D
Sometimes there is nothing she can do
C  G       Am
Carolyn is tamed...
All those years and all those tears
Cuddling her insecure
And shaking like a child and feeling helpless
But maybe I share the blame
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/ron_hawkins/the_tame_the_half_born_crd.html ]
G           Am              Em             C
Peter has a fan club he's a whiskey hating Christian
    G                 Am          C                 D
And he's in love with everyone as long as they keep listening
              Em             F               Am    D
And there's a hole in my old faith where he belongs
         Em              F                Am    D
But, the whole of me has never been that strong
C     G       Am
Peter is half-born...
With one foot in and one foot out
A princess on a barstool
Anarcho- Commun- Liberat- ingratiating stranger to me now

G     D           F     Em G     D          F   Em
Close friends and passerby love affairs and suicides
Am                C             D         Am           C          D
Sex and drugs and crash n' burn decisions politics and prostitute
religions
Am             C         F                Em     C
Fucking at the movies or fighting in the street

G               Am              Em              C
Christopher's a scapegoat cause he lives like a poem
    G              Am          C              D
And they want explanations but I just want to know him
G                Am             Em               C
Not for what he claims to be or what they say he isn't
G                 Am               Em           D
Just because he's got the balls to make his own decisions
    Em                      F              Am     D
And sometimes the pain he's feeling is so real
Em                F             Am    D
Sometimes that is all I need to feel
C      G       Am
Christopher is wild...
With fire-escape guitar afflictions
Different lives but shared addictions
Late night taxi, Frank Black happy birthdays
And blood-pact butchers knives

G                  Am              Em            C
Amsterdam, the sex museums and the New York City subway
   G           Am          C           D
Vancouver in November, and Montreal on Monday
      G            Am                 Em          C
We'll get a fix in Union Square we'll drop at C.B.G.B.'s
       G             Am                          C                  D
And if we can't find salvation there, we'll stay home and watch the t.v.
Em               F                     Am     D
And I'll be your disciple if you'll be mine
          Em               F             Am
And we'll make love in the moaning summertime
      C       G     Am
Cause you are beautiful...
