Title:  Wasted Time
Artist: Eagles
Album:  Hell Freezes Over
Tuning: Standard Tuning
Tabber: Tomburgess24

Fm6     131131
Ab      466544
C/G     332010
E/G#    422100 
D/F#    200232  (thumb)

Verse 1:
[C]    Well, baby, there you [Fm6] stand
[C/G]    with your little head down in your [F]hand.    [G7]
[F]Oh my God, you [Am7] can’t believe its [Dm] happening again. [Am7]
Your [F]baby's gone and you're [Am7] all alone and it [Dm] looks like the [F]end.  [G7]

Verse 2:
[C]    And you're back out on the [Fm6] street
[C/G]    and you're tryin' to [F]remember. [G7]
[F] How do you start it over? [Am7]  You [Dm] don't know if you can. [Am7]
You [F] don't care much for a [Am7] stranger's touch but you [Dm] can't hold your [G7] man.

[Am]  You never thought you'd [E/G#] be alone
[G]this far downs the [D/F#] line
and [F] I know what's been on your [Em] mind,
you're a[Dm]fraid it's all been [F]was[G7]ted [C]time.

[Bm7]    The autumn [E7]leaves have got you [Am]thinking
[Bm7]    about the [E7]first time that you [Am]fell.
[Bm7]    You didn't [E7]love the bo[Am]y too much[C/G], no no,
you just[F] lov[C/G]ed the boy [Fm6]too well_[F]___  [G]er-[G7]well

Verse 3:
[C] So you live from day to [Fm6] day
[C/G] and you dream about [F] tomorrow, [G7] oh.
[F] And the hours go by like [Am7] minutes and the [Dm] shadows come to stay. [Am7]
So ya [F] take a little [Am7] something to [Dm] make them go [G7] away.

[Am] And I could have done so [E/G#] many things, baby,
[G] if I could only stop my [D/F#] mind
from [F] wond'rin' what I left be[Em]hind
and from [Dm] worryin' bout this [G7] wasted [C] time.

[Ab]Ooh, another love has come and [C]gone.
[Ab]Ooh, and the years keep rushing [C]on.
I[F]remember what you told me[Am7]before you[Dm]went out on your own[Am7]
sometimes to [F] keep it together[Am7]we got to [Dm]leave it alone. [G7]

So [Am] you can get on with [E/G#] your search, baby,
[G] and I can get on with [D/F#] mine.
And [F] maybe someday we will [Em] find
that it [Dm]wasn't really [F]was[G7]ted [C]time.

Tom: Thank you very much for posting this. I agree that it is perfect, except for the outro chords (after the last "time"). I suggest this instead (beat counts in parentheses):

C(1) C/E(1) C/F(1) C/G(1) Ab(4)
C(1) C/E(1) C/F(1) C/G(1) Ab(3) Bb(1)
C(1) C/E(1) C/F(1) C/G(1) Ab(4) Fm6(4) C(ring)

Thanks for the tab! I would change [F] Oh my God [Am7] you can't believe to: [F] Oh my God you [C/E] can't believe it's [Dm] happening again [C/E]
