FAST AS YOU (Dwight Yoakam)
---------------------------

[Thanks to David Smillie & Mike James for the lyrics.]
[All the E measures pretty much follow the riff that I've tabbed out at
 the end.  The F# is more of an F#5, and the A that follows it is kind of
 A5-ish.  The B in the bridge could be a B7, but that's not important.]


E  E  E  E   E  E  E  E
[intro]

E                        E    E                  E
Maybe someday I'll be strong, maybe it won't be long
A                      A     E                                E
I'll be the one who's tough, you'll be the one who's got it rough
F#                   A                     E   E
It won't be long and maybe I'll be real strong

Maybe I'll do things right, maybe I'll start tonight
You'll learn to cry like me, baby let's just wait and see
Maybe I'll start tonight and do things right

A                     A           A                    E  E
You'll control me and oh so boldly rule me 'till I'm free
          A                   A               A                 B
'Till the pain that shakes me finally makes me get up off of my knees
B
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Maybe I'll be fast as you, maybe I'll break hearts too
But I think that you'll slow down when your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you...awwwww...

E  E  E  E   A  A  E  E   F#  A  E  E
[guitar solo]

You'll control me and oh so boldly rule me 'till I'm free
'Til the pain that shakes me finally makes me get up off of my knees
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Maybe I'll be fast as you, maybe I'll break hearts too
But I think you'll slow down when your turn to hurt comes around
Maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you
Maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you...ahhh, s'okay (?)

TAB:

Here's the main riff for	The A measures in the middle
the E measures:			of the verse (NOT the end) are
				pretty much the same:

E ----------------|		E ----------------|
B ----------------|		B ----------------|
G ----------------|		G --------0-------|
D --------0-------|		D ----------2-4-2-|
A ----------2-4-2-|		A 0-0-3-4---------|
E 0-0-3-4---------|		E ----------------|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .		  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .

I think the B in the bridge is like this:

E ----------------|----------------|
B ----------------|----------------|
G --------2-------|----------------|
D ----1-4---4-6-4-|----------------|
A 2-2-------------|2-2-0-0---------|
E ----------------|--------4-4-2-2-|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .

I'm not at all sure about the A measures
in the bridge, but I think they might be
something like this:

E ----------------|
B ----------------|
G ----------------|
D 2-2-4-2-5-2-4-2-|
A 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
E ----------------|
