Bob Seger – Till It Shines tab

Till It Shines. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band (From the album Stranger in Town)

This is a truly great song (and my first tab!) and you can play along in this key – 
fantastic on a 12 string! The verse keeps a very constant 4 bar rhythm which needs to be 
if you want it to sound like the recording.

Thanks to Wedge for pointing me in the right direction – here’s the rest of the lyrics.

Intro:  C Em Am G play 4 times

C         Em         Am     G
 Take away my inhibitions
C     Em          Am        G
 Take away my solitude
C        Em                Am     G
 Fire me up with your resistance
               C       Em     Am    G
Mmm put me in the mood
C        Em                    Am   G
 Storm the walls around this prison,
C             Em               Am    G
 Leave the inmates,  free the guards

C              Em      Am           G
 Deal me up another future from some
                  C      Em     Am    G
Brand new deck of cards

F                                  G
Take the chip off from my shoulder,
C           Cmaj7      Am
Smooth out all the lines
F                    C           G    F   C 
Take me out among the rustlin’ pines
C         Em         Am      G
 Till it shines
C         Em         Am                G
 Till it shines

Like an echo down a canyon,
Never coming back this clear
Lately I just judge the distance,
Not the words I hear
I’ve been too long on these islands,
I’ve been far too long alone
I’ve been too long without summer
in this winter home.

Still if we can make the effort
If we take the time
Maybe we can leave this much behind
Till it shines
Mm Till it shines

Instrumental verse

See the rich man lost and lonely
Watch him as he dines, sitting there just tasting all the wines
Till it shines
Mm Till it shines
Till it Shines   repeat
Instrumental & fade
