Verse:
(Try to make variations with Dsus4! Hear the song and find out when to vary.)
[D] You went in the m[G]orning
[D] We didn't say good-b[G]ye
[D] The friends that you l[G]eft here
Wonder [Em7/B]why, wonder [Asus4]why
[D] I wish I could s[G]ee you
[D] Just for a d[G]ay
[D] Tell you we m[G]issed you
And ask you to [Em7/B]stay, ask you to [Asus4]stay
Chorus:
To absent fr[D]iends[Cadd4]
This one's for y[Em]ou, this one's for [Cmaj7]you
To absent fr[D]iends[Cadd4]
This one's for y[Em]ou, this one's for [Cmaj7]you
You went without warning
We didn't even know
Just like the good ones
It was your turn to go
Your turn to go
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you (this one's for you)
This one's for you
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you (this one's for you)
This one's for you
Solo:
(Try variations with Cadd4 / Cadd2 / Cmaj7 or other - it's impossible to hear it! Make
sure that it sounds/feels good.)
[Em] [C] [Em] [C]  
[Em] [C] [D] [D]  
[Em] [C] [Em] [C]  
[Em] [C] [D] [D]  
[Bm] When we're tog[D]ether
[Bm] You stand at our s[D]ide
[Bm] We'll raise our gl[D]asses
And toast you [Cadd4]tonight
Toast you ton[A]ight
You went in the morning
We didn't say good-bye
The friends that you left here
Wonder why, wonder why
I wish I could see you
Just for a day
Tell you we missed you
And ask you to stay
Ask you to stay
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you (this one's for you)
This one's for you
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you (this one's for you)
This one's for you
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you (this one's for you)
This one's for you
To absent friends (to absent friends)
This one's for you
This one's for you
This one's for you
(I'll try to tab the solo as soon as I get a guitar with more than 21 frets.)
