At the Library  Green Day

Title: At the Library
Artist: Green Day
transcribed by Tom Caja Jinx409@aol.com
This is a really cool song off of 39/Smooth (a whooping "huh?"
from trendies). You may have to improvise some parts, so just
listen to the song a few times, but it's a LOT of fun to play.
All tuning IS standard.
intro play 2X

verse 2
chorus
then that second part for awhile, and fade to a palm mute
on a G5 chord (why did you have to have to leave so soon?...)
and a played out D5 on "away?"
go to the second guitar part 8X (oh well it happened again...)
the coda's the same as the intro, ending with the impossible
guitar solo, and a powerful G5
[G5]hey [B5]there [C5]looking at [D5]me
[G5]tell [B5]me [C5]what do you [D5]see?
[G5]but you [B5]quickly [C5]turn your [D5]head a-
[G5]way[B5] [C5] [D5]
try to find the words i could use
to have the courage to come on to you
my chance is looking rather
grim
[E5]staring ac[C5]ross the room
[E5]are you [C5]leaving soon?
[E5]i just [C5]need a little [D5]time
what is it that drives me mad?
girls like you that i never had
what is it about you that i a-
dore?
what makes me feel so much pain?
what makes me go so insane?
what is it about you that i a-
dore?
staring across the room
are you leaving soon?
i just need a little time,
[D5]what time? WAAAAAAA!!!
[G5]why did you have to leave so soon?
why did you have to walk a[D5]way?
oh well it happened again
she walked away with her boyfriend
maybe we'll meet again some
day
Have fun, and if you figure out that solo,
or have corrections, PLEASE E-mail me at:
