                This is track 11 from disc 1 of FOW's Out of State Plates Release.  It is a very 
rough demo home recording.  I love the song and I think it's another example of 
FOW's great writing ability.  

This is probably only my 3rd tab and I did my last one years ago so I'm hoping 
this one turns out alright.  I guarantee it's better than the tab that wasn't 
there before.  You may have to change the key, but I think the progression is 
correct.  I'm pretty sure the Cmaj7 is correct but the G6 could probably just be 
played as a standard G. 

This tab is dedicated to Jessica I., one of the most special people I've ever 
met.  I want you around.

Intro: E-Cmaj7-G6-D x 2

Verse 1:
E       Cmaj7    G                     D
On this day, I'm walking a fine line, Imagine in my mind
      E    Cmaj7 G                   D                      G
As if I'm okay,  tougher than nylon, safe as a house on the way

Pre-Chorus:
                             Em
My little darlin', don't you cry, it makes you look older.
            Bm               C       Am          D
C'mon, now, hey, don't you be down.  I want you around

Chorus:
            G     Em            F    C
I want you around.  I want you around.

Verse 2:
E         Cmaj7     G                     D
Here's my plan, I'm losing the halo, it's time to lay low.
E         Cmaj7 G                    D                  G
Man, some plan, come the high water, I'll be a drowning man.

Pre-Chorus:
                             Em
My little darlin', don't you cry, it makes you look older.
            Bm               C       Am          D
C'mon, now, hey, don't you be down.  I want you around

Chorus:
            G     Em            F    C             G     Em
I want you around.  I want you around. I want you around.  
            F     C   C/B...
I want you around.

Bridge:
Am                                         C                     G
While I'm doing battle with myself and me, I'm doing battle with gravity
      F                  Am       F                  Am        G  Em F C
And I can't face myself alone.  I can't stand to be alone with me.

G-Em-F-C

Bm               C      Am          D
Hey, don't you be down, I want you around

Chorus:
            G     Em            F    C             G     Em
I want you around.  I want you around. I want you around.  
            F     C  
I want you around.     Repeat to fade.
