Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Open D minor (DADFAd)



Like every other Radio Moscow song, Parker plays a $!load of eighth notes, so
it was necessary to split the beat up. Look to 0:01 for clarification. You can 
see the beat represented with * and the 8th beat represented with ^. The echoed 
drum is every other beat, represented by (*). The *'s are going at precisely 100bpm,
a comfortable pace for tapping along with the foot.

You could play in Open D (DADF#Ad), but it would make the breakdown and outro 
a little bit harder. The F# string isn't played at all in the rest of the song, 
so you may as well tune it down to F and make things easier.

I didn't use any notation for the use of the guitar slide but I'm assuming
you can tell when the slide is being used and when it isn't.

I matched the lyrics with their correct spot in the beat. I had to abbreviate some
of the words to get them to land on the *'s and ^'s correctly.

If you're having trouble playing anything CONTACT ME BEFORE RATING THE TAB.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.

Full Lyrics:
I don't know where I'm going
and I'm trying to forget where I've been

time creeps forward
but that feeling still remains
the emptiness she left me
when my baby went away

I don't know where I'm going
and I'm trying to forget where I've been

keep on moving
now the lonesome path I roam
thinking of what could have been
if I didn't do her wrong

I don't know where I'm going
and I'm trying to forget where I've been

Trouble keeps coming back to me
I always let her in

sweet little thing
you my baby

I can't live without you

I don't know where I'm going
and I'm trying to forget where I've been
trouble keeps coming back to me
I always let her in
