In my Shoes 
Polar Boy 
Back From Nowhere 
tabbed by Karlyn-Ruth Johnson 
(soft acoustic, finger-picked) 
Intro: F C Dm Am B A Dm G (3x) 

F    C       Dm 
How could you start 
   Am                B       A 
By breaking my only heart in two 
     Dm            G 
When all I want was you 
F    C         Dm 
What could you mean by 
Am               B 
Crushing my feelings 
    A                   Dm                 G 
In spite of what you've said the last few weeks 
     Dm                  G 
You said the last few weeks 
        Dm                  G      C 
You've said these last few weeks to me 
(louder, electric) 
F      C      Dm         Am            B 
And why, why, why did I listen to the lie 
      A            Dm               G 
That you would be with me till the end 
F       C                                Dm                        Am 
Cuz at the first sight of my cross 
           B 
You took flight 
         A              Dm          G 
Like a child would have run from a game 
Dm                 G 
Running from the pain 
Dm               G C  C 
Running from the name 

Chorus 
(no chord)      F 
What would you do 
            A 
(?) in my shoes  
      Dm                 Bm       C 
Don't make me choose between you two cuz 
F             A 
I won't comprimise 
Dm 
If one's to lose 
   Bm     C         F 
It surely would be you 

C Dm Am B A Dm G 

F   C         Dm 
So make your stand 
     Am                B 
Draw your line in the sand 
     A                  Dm               G 
And hope that you'll be happy where you land 
F     C             Dm 
After you draw your line 
           Am           B 
And you're on the other side 
      A                 Dm              G 
I'm afraid that we will have to say goodbye 
      Dm              G 
We'll have to say goodbye 
      Dm              G    C 
We'll have to say goodbye tonight 
F        C     Dm        Am             B 
And why, why, why do you listen to the lie 
      A              Dm                G 
That you could have lived this kind of life 
F     C           Dm 
Just give him one try 
     Am           B 
Then one day at a time 
         A                Dm           G 
Then, eventually, you'll learn how to fly 
       Dm           G 
You'll learn how to fly 
        Dm          G C   C 
You'll learn how to fly 

Chorus 

(no chords) 
(?) In my shoes 
Don't make me choose between you two cuz 
I won't comprimise 
If ones to lose it surely would be 
Surely would be you 

(soft, acoustic finger-picked) 
F C Dm Am 

   B 
It surely would be 
Bm     C          F 
Surely would be you 
C Dm Am 
   B 
It surely would be 
Bm     C           F 
Surely would be you 
C Dm Am 
   B 
It surely would be 
Bm     C           F 
Surely would be you 
(loud electric) 
F         C    Dm 
And why, why, why? 
Am B A Dm G 

F     C   Dm 
Why, why, why? 
Am B 
A             Dm           G 
Maybe you'll learn how to fly 
       Dm           G 
You'll learn how to fly 
Dm             G                 C 
Maybe some day you will learn to fly 
  
What can I say, but that this song rocks. Definitely digging this band.
