It Ain't Me, Babe Chords

(ver. 3)
Johnny Cash
 The other tab just didn't do Cash any respect, here's somethin that sounds a lot like
the original recording. Just start country pickin with your thumb, first the low E
string then the rest of the chord, in a 1-2-1-2-1-2-1-2(one, two, one , two) 4/4 rhythm.

Verse I

G               Am  
Go away from my window 
G                          Am 
Leave at your own chosen speed 
G                   Am 
I'm not the one you want, babe 
    G                Am 
I'm not the one you need 

Verse II
    G                  Am 
You say you're lookin' for someone 
            G               Am
Who's never weak but always strong 
      G              Am 
To protect you and defend you 
        G                Am 
Whether you are right or wrong 
    C                          D 
Someone to open each and every door  


 __             G
[ But, it ain't me babe 
[  G                   Am
[ No, no, no, it ain't me babe 
[          C         D       G
[ It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe

Verse III

      G              Am
Go lightly from the ledge babe
      G              Am 
Go lightly on the ground
    G                Am
I'm not the one you want babe
      G            Am 
I'll only let you down

Verse IV

     G                 Am
You say you're lookin for someone
        G                Am 
Who'll promise never to part
     G                Am
Someone to close his eyes for your
     G                Am 
Someone to close his heart
    C                       D
Someone to die for you and more!!!  


Verse V
    G                 Am
You say you're lookin for someone 
    G                         Am
To pick you up each time you fall 
   G              Am
To gather flowers constantly 
   G                      Am
And to come each time you call
           C                                 D
And we'll love you for your life and nuthin more....

End with the Chorus

The rest is as same as above, but a little different, but I'm sure you all can figure
tab instead of scrambling through various cr*ppy tabs that just take up our precious
world one chord at a time...
