Caroline The Wrecking Ball
This is my first tab but I love OAR and this song so I spent the time to study it for my fellow humans. THIS SONG IS IN STANDARD AND CAPO ON THE 2ND FRET VERSE (CHORDS SAME IN EVERY VERSE JUST LISTEN FOR STRUMMING PATTERN.) C FM7 C There something about the way we fall apart C FM7 C G Like everything that matters, didn't matter from the start C FM7 C Everyone around us played a part C FM7 Wrecking ball came crashing through the window C G FM7 Structures that we carry in our heart C G And all I ever asked of you C FM7 C Is just to be the woman that you wanted to C G It's all I ever asked C FM7 C Just outside the city on a Sunday last July C FM7 C G The girl's name was Brandy but we called her Caroline C FM7 C No one even knew her history C FM7 Said she came from somewhere in the southland C G FM7 Feels like she was coming straight for me I was playing nine ball with two guys I knew from work This junkie local starts acting like a jerk Saw him put his hand up Brandy's skirt And I don't know what happened next In retrospect I lost my head and think I went berserk By the time they pulled me off him I was almost coming to Bleeding at the knuckles, she says nice to meet you And the cops will probably be here in a flash We hailed a cab we both got in And watched that taxi driver slam his foot down on the gas CHORUS (SAME CHORDS WITH EVERY CHORUS) C FM7 C G Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you F5/C (E A D G B e0 is how to play this weird chord) Oh oh oh C FM7 C G Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you F5/C But I ain't nobody's fool Next few months we spent a lot of time up in the room Laughed a lot, drank a lot, yeah we tried to shoot the moon And in the morning time she'd always disappear I agreed, I'd never ask her questions With the chance of an answer I don't wanna hear One morning, she crying on the stoop outside my place She tryin' to hide it, there's sadness on her face Oh is there anything I can do? She said perhaps if you would drop this package off I would hate to inconvenience you Well they say a suckers born, every sixty seconds time I knew I shouldn't do it, but I put it from my mind And, oh if you knew that gal of mine You'd understand, I got no hand in making that decision Reason got no rhyme Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you Oh oh oh Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you But I ain't nobody's fool Nobody's fool no more I knocked at the address that she gave waited for a few Looked inside the window and I saw a kid or two Next thing I knew a burner in my face There's just some shit you never can erase Both my hands were shaking as the sun began to rise I got back to my house, she was gone I'm not surprised You can never ground a bird that needs to fly Oh I got into that urge to move Thanks to you, my wrecking ball Caroline Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you Oh oh oh Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you Oh oh oh Must be a fool like me to be with you Oh oh oh Must be a fool like me to be with you But I ain't nobody's fool Nobody's fool no more No more Add any suggestions and I hope you enjoy!
