(Intro) with lick

|G - Emin - |C - D -| x 4


G              Emin           C     D   
 Sunday rolled around and I'm alone again.
G                Emin                   C          D
 I picked up the phone and I started to call.
C              D              G      G/F#      Emin
 I dialed your number. Let it ring a couple of times.
C                                D
 Hung it up cause I was just too scared.
G         Emin             C            D 
 Hardly a day goes by don't think about you.
G           Emin    C      D
 I know its been so long.
C              D        G        G/F#      Emin
 Still got the memories way down inside my heart,
C                                         D
 Now I wonder if I'll ever love like that again.


(Chorus)
G                        Emin            C             D
 Well I'm tired of being alone.  Want to rest my weary head.
G          Emin            C         D         
 I want to know if love is real.
G                 Emin        C             D
 Want to feel the passion and smile upon my face.
G         Emin       C       D
 My sweet baby in my arms. 
C               D               G         G/F#       Emin   
 Lonliness is a lonely song and I've been singing it way too long.
C       D              G       Emin  C  D  G  Emin  C  D
 I'm so tired of being alone.

     G               Emin                 C         D    
Well i've had people tell me that they're tired.
G                        Emin          C     D
 They've been hearing my sob story way too long.
C            D               G    G/F#       Emin
 Say I could find someone if only I    would try.
C                                D
 Oh but I've been trying way too long.

(Chorus)

It's not "Sonny rode around and I'm alone again," it's "Sunday rolled around and I'm alone again."

And also, the intro doesn't make sense because it's not in the right key.
I'm basing that off the fact that they're lead guitarists are very rock-oriented
and they would most likely use the pentatonic scale of E like this

e-12--------15--
b-12--------15--
g-12----14------
d-12----14------
a-12----14------
E-12--------15--

or an octave lower:
e-0----------3--
b-0----------3--
g-0-----2-------
d-0-----2-------
a-0-----2-------
E-0----------3--

I'll have to go check this again later. I did tab it with a recording of the song. As far as the E pentatonic, thats beyond my musical knowledge. I know what a pentatonic scale is but not how the scales go with chord progressions. All I had to work with was an mp3 so I figured some of the lyrics would be wrong. Thanks for pointing that out.
-DaveWH | 12/8/2004
Actually that intro would be in the E pentatonic scale.

E pent = e g a b d e g a b d e g (from your diagram)

Notes in intro =
g dHe gag aPg aSb d bSa gHaPg

notes are lower case H S P are hammer, slide, pulloff (from above tab).

So all the notes in the intro are in the E pent. scale.
-DaveWH | 12/8/2004
I think that the E pentatonic you're thinking about is like this:

e-7------10--12------15-
b---8----10-------------
g-7----9----------------
d-7----9----------------
a-7------10-------------
E-----------------------

which would make his scale one step down and having and non-pentatonic note in it on a--7th fret.
Either way, there's definitely a better way to play it, I'll work on it.
-RHBWACO | 12/16/2004
Could you call the scale a G major pentatonic (aka, E minor petatonic)
The songs in G, all the scales shown all work, the orginal notes shown are in a different pentatonic form(1 of the 5 for each key).
It threw me off for a few seconds, just want to clarify for anyone at there whose just learning the pentatonics scales.
Great song! thanks for the chords and words!
