Illscarlett - Life Of A Soldier tab

Title: ďLIFE OF A SOLDIERĒ
Artist: ILL SCARLETT
TABBED By: Bill Lupton
Email: bill.lupton@hotmail.com

I have not seen this tab on the net yet.  So I decided to throw it down real
quick.  This Tab is played in standard tuning.  These are just the parts, I did
not write out the rhythm, listen to the song and figure it out.  Its not too
bad.  Comments, suggestions, improvements are welcome, but this should get you
started.  Cheers.

Solo: This is played together and makes a wicked harmony.
      You can play this with one guitar if you want just ignore
      The notes before the bends, but it sounds way better with 2 gtrs.
      This can also be played over the last chorus.

Lyrics:

Youíre at home, Iím away
And if all I can say
Is that this boy is still the same
Itís the man inside thatís changed
Front of the line but still behind
Seems like Iím trying way too hard
And like I havenít tried at all
Hard as stone but feeling all the weight
Feeling all the weight thatís crushing me
When you come around
Youíre like a little slice of heaven when Iím coming down
Lifting me up above the clouds

Iíll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I donít return from this life of a soldier
Donít you be crying for me.

Throw this all away
Nothing comes for free at least thatís what they say
If I had the chance Iíd do it all again
If I had the chance Iíd do it all again
Racing against the clock trying to relieve the pressure
Pushing you away so we can be together
Carry me today Iíll carry you forever
Letís take a chance and weíll see if this wonít last
Hard as a stone but feeling all the weight
Feeling all the weight thatís crushing me
When you come around
Youíre like a little slice of heaven when Iím coming down
Lifting me up above the clouds.

Iíll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I donít return from this life of a soldier
Donít you be crying for me.

Thereís a car pulling up and the man whoís inside
Takes a deep breath as he straightens his tie
Itís nothing new cause heís done this before
She knew it as soon as he knocked on the door
Please someone please tell me I must be dreaming
What will I do oh, I just canít believe it
Taken away, oh heís
Taken away
Someone take me away
Someone take me away.

Iíll sleep tonight but the wars far from over
Tomorrow is no guarantee
If I donít return from this life of a soldier
Donít you be crying for me.

Nothing comes for free at least thatís what they say
If I had the chance Iíd do it all again
