Longest Days - John Mellencamp
    tabbed by twoputt@mac.com


Db                          Gb              Db                             Gb
Seems like once upon a time ago             I was where I was supposed to be
Db                         Gb                            Bbm                 Ab
My vision was true and my heart was too     There was no end to what I could dream
Db                                     Gb   Db                      Gb
I walked like a hero into the setting sun   Everyone called out my name
Db                      Gb                            Bbm             Ab
Death to me was just a mystery              I was too busy raising up Cain

CHORUS
Db                  Gb              Db                              Gb
But nothing lasts forever           Your best efforts don't always pay
Db                                   Gb
Sometimes you get sick and don't get better
Bbm                        Gb          Ab      Db
That's when life is short  even in its longest days

Db                     Gb                   Db                   Gb
So you pretend not to notice                That everything has changed
Db                            Gb                       Bbm                Ab
The way that you look and the friends you had   So you keep on acting the same

CHORUS
Db                     Gb                   Db                       Gb
But deep down in your soul                  You know you, you got no flame
Db                        Gb
And who knows then which way to go
Bbm                        Gb          Ab      Db
That's when life is short  even in its longest days

BRIDGE
Bbm                 Ab
All I got here is a rear view mirror
Bbm                       Ab
Reflections of where I've been
       Bbm                                      Ab
So you tell yourself I'll be back up on top some day
        Gb                                               Ab
But you know there's nothing waiting up there for you anyway

CHORUS
Db                  Gb              Db                              Gb
But nothing lasts forever           Your best efforts don't always pay
Db                                   Gb
Sometimes you get sick and don't get better
Bbm                        Gb          Ab      Db
That's when life is short  even in its longest days
Bbm                        Gb          Ab      Db
That's when life is short  even in its longest days

This is nicely done. The only thing is that everywhere there is the chord progression from Db to Gb, those should actually be reversed. It's really Gb to Db pretty much everywhere except where he sings "even in its longest days" - there the chords are correct.

Also right before "deep down in your soul" there is a "CHORUS" label that shouldn't be there.

But those are simple changes to a real nice job.

It is truth you speak about the Db/Gb progression! Thanks for keeping me honest. I've just submitted a correction.
