Time of your life  Green Day

   [G]                               [C9]               [Dsus4]                                                 
   |-------3--------------3--------------3------------3------| then it repeats, so it almost
   |----------3-------------3--------------3------------3----| sounds like it goes C9, Dsus4,
   |-------------0------------0--------------0-----2------2--| Gmodal. So, after the end of the
   |---0--------------0--------------2-----------0-----------|  Dsus4 bit, go straight to the G
   |------------------------------3--------------------------|  bass note.

    [Em]              [Dsus4]                [C9]                  [G]                                              
   |------3------------3-------------3------------3----------|   The above line gets played
   |--------3------------3-------------3------------3--------|  twice, then this twice, and that's
   |----------0-----2------2-------------0------------0------|  the verse.  Then the line after
   |---2----------0---------------2------------0-------------|  that is the chorus.  Not that
   |----------------------------3----------------------------|   complex, but this IS Green Day,
   |-0---------------------------------------3---------------|   after all.

    [Em]              [G]             [Em]                [G]                                                   

        [Em]               [Dsus4]                                                                               
   |------3---------3------|  Okay, now, it's important that you go straight back into the
   |--------3---------3----|  opening G of the verse, because the Dsus4 sort of leaves you
   |----------0---------2--|  hanging there.  Then play the first half of the verse once
   |---2----------0--------|  through, then start it all over again.

Verse 1:
[G]Another [C9]turning point a [Dsus4]fork stuck in the [G]road
[G]Time grabs you [C9]by the wrist [Dsus4]directs you where to [G]go
[Em]So make the [Dsus4]best of these days and [C9]don't ask [G]why
[Em]It's not a [Dsus4]question but a [C9]lesson learned in [G]time
[Em]It's something unpre[G]dictable [Em]in the end it's [G]right
Em Dsus4 G (where verse riff cuts back in)
I hope you have the time of your life. (Start struming G C Dsus4)
Verse 2:
[G]So take the [C9]photographs and [Dsus4]stillframes in your [G]mind
[G]Hang it on a [C9]shelf; it [Dsus4]could've been good [G]times (couldn't get this line, fix it if you know it)
[Em]Tatoos and [Dsus4]memories and [C9]asking on [G]trial
[Em]For what it's [Dsus4]worth it was [C9]worth all the [G]while
Instrumental(Strum over Violins)
End with Tab 1 and then |---------|
                        |------0--|  and end on a G

Chord changes in wrong places

tunedeaf (report)

Rather than say the chords are wrong, I might suggest that I hear it a bit differently and offer this:
[G]Another [004432]turning point a [C]fork stuck in the [D]road.
[G]Time grabs you [004432]by the wrist [C]directs you where to [D]go
[Em]So make the [D]best of these days and [C]don't ask [G]why
[Em]It's not a [D]question but a [C]lesson learned in [G]time
If you want to spruce it up a little you can add an Asus after the D's and a G4 after the G's
This pattern works for my ears and it's easier to play too! ;)
Try it and let me know. Tunedeaf (

roketrik (report)

Chords are wrong, it's G2-C2-D-G (or G-C-D-G) then Em-D-C-G. Chords are shown in the wrong place, hold the G til "fork",C, hold C til "road",D etc.

corrected lyrics:

So make the best of this test, and don't ask why

Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
