Eagles tabs

Certain Kind Of Fool guitar tab

CERTAIN KIND OF FOOL
Randy Meisner, Don Henley & Glenn Frey

Eagles
Desperado
1973

The guy I take guitar lessons from suggested that I try to figure out
more songs for myself, so here goes one more.  This is a good song off
Desperado.  Sorry if you don't like Meisner's voice in it; it is kind
of screechy.  There are lots of parts, so I'll try not to confuse you.
The acoustic parts and lyrics appear first, then the electric parts at the end.
Also, if you experience tab wrap-around on this piece, change your monitor
resolution to 600x800 pixels, cause that's what it was designed for.
Good luck, have fun, and here goes nothin'!

He was a poor boy raised in a small family.
He kinda had a craving for somethin' no one else could see.
They said that he was crazy, the kind that no lady should meet.
He ran off to the city and wandered around in the street.

And then one day he found it, he knew he could stand with the best.
They got respect,
Oh yeah, he wants the same.
And it's a certain kind of fool that likes to hear the sound of his own pain.

This is a fuzzy electric that pretty much follows some simple patterns that
I will outline here.  It picks up with the line "He kinda had a craving.."
Keep in mind that the lyrics are NOT written in the correct timing.
