Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Time   Hootie and The Blowfish

[D]Ti[Em]me_[D]_,[Em]  why you[D] punish [Em]me [D]  [Em]
Like a wave crashing into the shore
You wash away my dreams
Time__, why you walk away
Like a friend with somewhere to go
You left me crying

   Can you [Asus2]teach me about tommorow
   and [G]all the pain and sorrow[D], run[Em]ning free[D]   [Em]
   Cause to[Em]morrow's just another day[Asus]     [A]
D Em etc
And I don't believe in time

Time__, I don't understand
Chidren killing in the streets
Dying for the color of a rag
Time__, hey there red and blue
Wash them in the ocean make them clean
Maybe their mothers won't cry tonight

Will you teach me about tommorow
When all the pain and sorrow, running free
But tomorrow's just another day
And I don't believe in

      [D]Time is wasting
      Ti[Em]me is walking
     [D] You ain't no [Em]friend of mine
     [D] I don't know [Em]where I'm going
     [D] Think I'm [Em]out of my [A]mind [G]
      Thinking about [D]time [Em]     [D]     [Em]
    [Em]  If I die tomorrow [Asus]yeah
      just [A]lay me down to [D]sleep[Em]     [D]     [Em]

Time is wasting
Time is walking
You ain't no friend of mine
I don't know where I'm going
Think I'm out of my mind
Thinking about time
Time__, you left me standing there
Like a tree growing all alone
The wind just stripped me bare, stripped me bare
Time__, the past has come and gone
The future's far away
But now only lasts for one second, one second

Can you teach me about tommorow
And all the pain and sorrow, running free
Cause tommorow's just another day
And I don't believe in

Time is wasting
Time is walking
You ain't no friend of mine
I don't know where I'm going
Walking, wasted
You ain't no friend of mine
I don't know where I'm going
      Oh no, no, no[A], Do without courage and [G]???
      It's just [D]wasted[Em], wasted,[D] wasted [Em]time
    [Em]  Oh..[Asus]     [A]

[D]   [Em]    [D]   [Em] Ooo[D]...[Em]....[D]...[Em]..
[D]Ti[Em]me_[D]_,[Em]  why you[D] punish [Em]me?  [D]

The following is the riff played (twice at the start as an intro, and then
throughout the verse) by two semi-clean electric guitars

At this point an acoustic guitar enters strumming the chords. From this
point on, one of the electrics plays the riff during the verses, the part
shown above during the bridges, and strums the chords during the choruses
("Time is wasting..") and solo. The second electric plays the occasional
power chord during verses and bridges and strums along to the choruses.
It also takes the solo:

At the end of the last chorus, the second guitar drops out; the acoustic
and the first electric play the main riff in unison to the end, finishing
with an open D chord.
