Really nice distinctive Joe guitar work similar to his earlier stuff; plus it sure
sounds like Jeff and Ringo backing him up.  At A chords at the end of the intro and verse
lines - add Asus4 variations to it.  The times shown are elapsed time from the start; 
chords by Marty Lurvey.

Intro  X2   G / / /  D / / /  A / / /  / / / /  0:14

Verse 1
         G                      D                      A
Well you know, I was always the first to arrive at the party,
    G          D                              A
Ooh... and the last to leave the scene of the crime.
        G                        Bm
Well it started with a couple of beers,
       G                          B
And it went I don't know how many years,
       G             A                         D
Like a runaway train headed for the end of the line.  0:47

Verse 2
       G                       D                       A
Well I finally got around to admit that I might have a problem.
      G                            D                    A
But I thought it was just too damn big of a mountain to climb.
       G                              Bm
Well I got down on my knees and said "Hey!
  G                            B
I just can't go on living this way!"
        G                        A                 D
Guess I have to learn to live my life one day at a time.  1:19

F - C     G - C  A            D
Oh  yeah!        One day at a time!
F - C     G - C  A            D
Oh  yeah!        One day at a time!  1:35

Guitar Solo < over verse chords >   2:06

Bridge, repeated    2:23

Verse 3
        G                      D                A
Well I finally got around to admit that I was a problem.
       G                        D                         A
When I used to put the blame on everybody's shoulders but mine.
        G                              Bm
All the friends I used to run with are gone,
        G                             B
Lord, I hadn't planned on livin' this long.
      G                          A                 D
But I finally learned to live my life one day at a time!  2:54

       G                            Bm
It was something I was too blind to see,
      G                                B
I got help from something greater than me...
      G                        A                 D
And today I learned to live my life one day at a time!   3:18

Such a great story of Walsh getting his life back together after all the drug mess. He swears the Eagles saved his life, and I like to think that this was a kind of thank you to the band and his fans for being there through it all. Great song, and great tab!

Instead of going G - D - A, try G - D - A - Asus4 - A - Asus4 - A.
Also, the second chord in the third line of the verse is a D and the second chord in the fourth line of the verse is actually the Bm
