Fastball - Fire Escape tab

Standard tuning (EADGBE)

Great song by Fastball.  The lead is pretty easy to find, but it took me a 
while to figure out the rhythm behind.  Here's my interpretation, which is a
mix of ear and watching them play the song live... the timing is
approximate, so please listen to the song to get the strumming right.  Hope 
that helps... email me (jfgenie2@hotmail.com) if you have corrections and/or questions!



Intro lead part:

e |---2---3--------3--------2---------|---2---3--------3--------2----------|
B |-----3------3--------3--------3----|-----3------3--------3--------3-----|
G |--------------2--------2--------2--|--------------2--------2--------2---|
D |-0---------------------------------|-0----------------------------------|

(and so on for the first part of the verses, then the last part of the verses:)


G               Em
  I don't wanna walk 'round in their shoes


(then back to intro)




(Chorus:)

A                        G              D
I'll be the rain falling on our fire escape

D     G              Em              (intro, half of it)
And I may not be the man you want me to

D     G          Em           (intro again)
I can be myself,    how 'bout you?
