Artist: Dwight Yoakam
Title: The back of your hand

----->(Capo 1st Fret)<----

Intro - E - A - E - B

           E
When you've give it up for gone,
                A 
But you're still diggin into mine,
           E
And you're starin at the window,
     B
Sayin everything will be just fine,
E
Keepin with the whole affair,
     A 
Every word seems outa line,
  E
No matter what angle you get,
       B
It's pollished, till it shines,


(chorus)
        A     B            E B C#m
Take a guess,   where I stand,
        A     B         E
Pick a number,  one or two,
        A    B                       E B C#m
Take a look,   at the back of your hand,
               A      B              E
Just like you know it,  you know me to,

(verse 2)
When you say, who the hell am I livin with,
What just went down,
Where did this come from, 
Why are all my colors faded brown,
When did it change, what's witht the rage,
Who's the dude with the extra roll,
With the verse, the line the chapter the page,


(chorus)
        A     B            E B C#m
Take a guess,   where I stand,
        A     B         E
Pick a number,  one or two,
        A    B                       E B C#m
Take a look,   at the back of your hand,
               A      B              E
Just like you know it,  you know me to,


(bridge)
C#m               B                 C#m          B
You think you're left, without any place left to go,
               C#m           B      C#m       B
Like you need one of those kisses, long and slow,
         C#m           B
At first glance ain't what it seems,
                      C#m                B
But there's but some things that I just know,
              C#m                B
Like you take two sugars with a splash of cream,


(chorus)
        A     B            E B C#m
Take a guess,   where I stand,
        A     B         E
Pick a number,  one or two,
        A    B                       E B C#m
Take a look,   at the back of your hand,
               A      B              E
Just like you know it,  you know me to,
              A      B              E
Yea like you know it,  you know me to,
               A      B              E
Just like you know it,  you know me to,

The person who tabbed this matched the key (key of F)to the recording perfectly, and players may indeed strum these chords without hitting a bad one. However, the recording is actually played in the key of G on a guitar that is tuned down a full step. Try it...it's easier to play, you can do the bass runs, and the low-tuned guitar sounds awesome.
