Standard tuning Capo: 6 F#7: 242322 B7: X24242 C#7: X46464 On the F#7 she hammers onto the second fret of the low E string during the intro and between verses and on the B7 she hammers on the second fret of the A string. F#7 Well, I'm tired of this baby, ain't you tired too We might as well admit we bit too much to chew B7 F#7 Better bid adieu before it's too late, baby C#7 B7 F#7 They say the longer you wait, the tighter shut is the gate We got nothing much in common, but it's just as well Never intertwined, we was just parallel We just didn't gel, let's dissipate, baby They say the longer you wait, the tighter shut is the gate B7 F#7 Well, now I just wanted peace and quiet, I stayed out of trouble B7 F#7 Everytime I bit my tongue my heartache doubled B7 F#7 Now this ain't as hard to figure out as a jigsaw puzzle C#7 B7 F#7 I can't find a reason now to keep this thing muzzled Well, now my resolve's been waiting for several years straight It's not that I won't miss you, but I just can't wait To celebrate, and I go wandering, baby They say the longer you wait, the tighter shut is the gate They say the longer you wait, the tighter shut is the gate
