Reo Speedwagon
As with my other tabs, I've tried to keep the measures linear to help get a
sense of rhythm. As such, when you see an "A", fret the string on the 10th
fret, a "B" means the 11th fret, and so on. There were a couple of measures
that were tabbed out as 16th notes, and the next time the same rhythm came
up, I have you refer back to the previous spacing. This was done to keep the
tab printable on one page without messing up the lines.

[VERSE]
  D                           A
  I've been around for you    And been up and down for you
      G                      D   D G D
  But I just can't get any relief
       D                               A
  I've swallowed my pride for you and  lived and lied for you
      G                             D    D G D
  But you still make me feel like a thief

             A                              G         D
  You got me stealing your love away 'cause you never give it
  A                          G          D
  Peeling the years away and we can't relive it
      G          D           G           D
  Oh, I make you laugh   And you make me cry
  A                               D
    I believe it's time for me to fly

  D        A        G        D                D        A        G        D

[VERSE]
  D                                A
  You said we'd work it out    You said that you had no doubt
       G                           D    D G D G D
  That deep down we were really in love
          D                            A
  Oh, but I'm tired of holding on to a feeling I know is gone
  G                             D    D G D G D
    I do believe that I've had enough

            A                           G          D
  I've had enough of the falseness of a worn out relation
   A                             G      D
  Enough of the jealousy and the intoleration
      G          D         G           D
  Oh, I make you laugh and you make me cry
  A                G              D    G D
    I believe it's time for me to fly

  D        A        G        D                D        A        G        D
