   Collective Soul - Run Tab    


This song is Eb standard tuning (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) But I`m not gonna tamper with the tab below

Here’s are all the chords to the song.
The lead guitar part is after the rhythm guitar part.
The rhythm guitar uses an acoustic guitar and the lead uses an electric guitar. You have to read all my directions to play this song just right.


C Am F G

e 0 0 1 3
B 1 1 1 3
G 0 2 2 0
D 2 2 3 0
A 3 0 2
E 3

You strum the C chord about 35 times for the intro and then the lyrics kick in:

Verse 1

C
Are these times contagious

Am F
I’ve never been this bored before

C G
Is this the prize I’ve waited for


C
Now as the hours passing

Am F
There’s nothing left here to insure

C G
I long to find a messenger

Chorus:

F C G
Have I got a long way to run (x2)

F C G
Yeah, I ruuuuuunnnnnnn

Verse 2:

C
Is there a cure among us

Am F
From this processed sanity

C G
I weaken with each voice that sings

C
In this world of purchase

Am F
I’m going to buy back memories


C G
To awake some old qualities

Then play the 2nd chorus the same as the 1st except the “ yeah, I run? line is done twice instead of once.

And for the ending you play the chorus riff ( F, C, G) 8 times and that’s the rhythm guitar portion. The key is at the bottom for the order.

Now here is the lead guitar portion.

The lead guitarist has two parts, a small little riff for the chorus and a small little solo.

Here is the little riff for the chorus.

F C G
e- - - - - 1 - - - 0 - - - -3 - - - - - - 3 - - - - - 3- - - -
B - - - 1- - - - 1- - - - 3 - 3 - - - 3 - - 3 - - - - - - - -
G- - 2 - - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - -0 - 0- - - - - 0- - - - - - -
D- 3 - - - - 2 - - - - - - - - - - 0 – - - - - - - 0- - - - -

E- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You play this 3 times for the 1st chorus, 4 for the 2nd and 6 for the ending. Each part is labeled with the chord it starts with during the chorus.

Now here’s the solo:

e - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
B – 13vvv - - 13vvv - - - 13 – 12 – 10 – 12 (x9) - - - - - - - -
G - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
D - - - - 10 - - - - 10 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
A - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Note: the 12th fret is played 9 times not the riff.
The riff is played twice for the solo and twice for the ending.
But for the ending, when you play the solo the second time, you play end on the 8th fret on the B
string after you play the 5th fret of the G string for the second time.

Here’s the song order:

For the rhythm guitar:

Intro ( the C chord strummed about 35 times)

I’m 98% sure this tab is correct and I give full credit to Collective Soul for this song. I also thank the people who have corrected my tab.
