Does anyone have or know where I could find the tab and/or chords for the Rolling Stones song "Faraway eyes."

Thanks
Bill

Here's something kind of close. Some of those 3-note chords may only be 2 strings, but this will get you in the ballpark. Timing-wise, the first three measures are slow triplets.

Chords are F-Bb-C. There's an Am thrown in on the chorus. Other than that, it's a straight I-IV-V chord progression.

Faraway Eyes
Solo
Key of F

I've been going back through the Forum archives and came across this tab, found a copy of the record, what a great song! I especially like how it is totally out of place on the "Some Girls" album.

Thanks for sharing this tab!

It might have been discussed extensively already but, I have not seen it mentioned recently, it turns out Ron Wood played pedal-steel on this song and has been playing it on some of the more recent tours.

"We aren't using a pull-string or a lot of slide right now, but Ron plays pedal steel, a bit on 'Shattered' and 'Far Away Eyes'. Country music's a part of the way we do that kind of thing, and it comes through even if it's done with straight guitars sort of pulling up against each other." - Keith Richards, 1982
