Subject:  Whatever comes first by The Sons of the Desert
Note:  I taped it off the radio so I do not know who wrote it or the name of
the album.  Will provide that information as soon as I get it.

      WHATEVER COMES FIRST   Sons of the Desert
F                                      Bb
Everyone said that it's no big deal  Nothing a little more time won't heal
F                                     Eb      C
Sooner or later the way I feel will change 
F                                  Bb
They've never hurt the way I do   Then they've never had to get over you
F                                                  Eb     C
They never shared my point of view         or the pain

CHORUS:
                    Bb        C    F                       Bb      C       F
I've either got to leave the past behind  Or find myself a way to lose my mind
                  Bb       C    F                    Eb                       
I'm ready for a change of any kind   For better or worst  
C                         F
I'll take whatever comes first



F                                     Bb
There's only so much a man can take before his reality starts to break
F                                        Eb    C
Especially holding an old heartache like you
F                                   Bb    
Oh, somebody's leaving I don't care who but there's not enough room in my mind 
for two
F                               Eb     C   (F)
It's finally come down to me or you

chorus, to lead (Oh oh oh), to ending
ENDING:
(F)                 Bb        C      F                      Bb      C      F
I've either got to leave the past behind  Or find myself a way to lose my mind
                Bb         C   F                  Eb   C
I'm ready for a change of any kind For better or worst
          Bb         C   F              Bb          C          F
I'll do anything go anywhere show me somewhere I'll go right there
                    Bb         C        F
It's gotten to the point where I don't care
              Eb   C                               F
Blessing or curse       I'll take whatever comes first
vamp on F 
Whatever comes first
vamp on F                                vamp on F
I'll take whatever comes first           whatever comes first
