Fire Escape Tab

Standard tuning (EADGBE)

Great song by Fastball.  The lead is pretty easy to find, but it took me a 
while to figure out the rhythm behind.  Here's my interpretation, which is a
mix of ear and watching them play the song live... the timing is
approximate, so please listen to the song to get the strumming right.  Hope 
that helps... email me ( if you have corrections and/or questions!

Intro lead part:

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

I'll be the rain falling on our fire escape

D     G              Em              (intro, half of it)
And I may not be the man you want me to
