INTRO



Maybe someday I'll be strong,

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



E
Maybe I'll do things right,

Maybe I'll start tonight.
A
You'll learn to cry like me,
E
Baby, lets just wait and see.
F#                 A                   E    
Maybe I'll start tonight and do things right.



A
You'll control me, and oh, so boldly,
                 E
Rule me 'til I'm free.
         A
'Til the pain that shakes me,
                               B        
Finally makes me get up off my knees, yeah yeah yeah.



E
Maybe I'll be fast as you,

Maybe I'll break hearts too.
    A
But I think that you'll slow down,
     E
When your turn to hurt comes around.
F#                          A             E 
Maybe I'll break hearts and be as fast as you.

Ahhhhhh....

The Intro actually hits a flatted 7th note(D) fifth fret fifth string you will
have to use your pinky on this one, every thing else in the tab seems fine

-wmweaver | 8/5/2002
The note is exactly the same the way that I
tabbed it....doesn't really matter whether
you fret the note or play it open, its still
the same note.
-axehappy | 9/16/2002
gotta back axehappy, a 5th fret on the A
is the same as an open D...i mean, you've
tuned your guitar by ear before right...
-lambdaphi874 | 2/17/2004
damn that is a good sounding tab nice work man
-jgod | 7/1/2004
Pete Anderson What a great guitarist! Thanks for the tab!
-kevykev | 1/24/2005
5th fret on A is same as open d, but it does make a significant differnce, 5th fretA carries a flatter tone than that of the open d, play the song, listen to the song, you'll see which sounds best
-countryguy20m | 2/23/2005
While open D string and 5th fret on the A are the same note. The big difference when you play the song is that when played on an open string the note will continue to ring out unless you mute it with your right hand. Where as if you play it fretted when you release the 5th fret to play the B on the same string the D note will end.
-NeckSnappa | 3/18/2005
Exactly, the only difference is the carrying out of the note. 5th fret A and open D are the same octave so it doesn't make a "significant difference," it only does if you want the sound to carry out. Otherwise, another amazing tab by axehappy. Great job.
