Lyrics
I Got a Name

I don't remember if I figured this out on
my own, or with a tab. In either case, I don't
have, and can't find, a tab file for this song
(for the key it's in on Photographs & Memories),
so I figured I'd make one.



E B C#m
Like the pine trees linin' the windin' road
A B E
I got a name, I got a name
E B C#m
Like the singin' bird and the croakin' toad
F# B
I got a name, I got a name

G#m A E G#
And I carry it with me like my daddy did
C#m F# B
But I'm livin' a dream that he can't give

G#m A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A B *(x2)
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

E B C#m
Like the north wind whistlin' on down the sky
A B E
I got a song, I got a song
E B C#m
Like the whipperwill and the baby's cry
F# B
I got a song, I got a song

G#m A E G#
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
C#m F# B
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud

G#m A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A B *
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by


(solo: This is kinda' close. He does a lot
of slides, hammerons, pulloffs, bends, etc.
These notes are right, though.)

And I'm gonna go there free...

E B C#m
Like the fool I am and will always be
A B E
I got a dream, I got a dream
E B C#m
They can change their minds but the can't change me
F# B
I got a dream, I got a dream


G#m A E G#
I know I could share it if you want me to
C#m F# B
If you're goin my way, I'll go with you


G#m A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A B *
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

G#m A
Movin' me down the highway,
G#m C#m
Rollin' me down the highway
A B
Movin' ahead so life won't
* * E
pass me by
