Song:  Wasted Years (Iron Maiden)
Acoustic Cover by Ryan Adams 

Not exactly correct but it will get you in the ballpark of working out the sound 
after listening to the acoustic version.
When playing the D chord, play the bottom string open (whatever chord that is).

Tuning: Standard 
Capo on 3rd Fret


Em                                       D
From the coast of gold, across the seven seas, 
Em                          D
I'm travelling on, far and wide,
            C9              Em 
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself, 
                D                                         C9
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but someone else.

Em                             D
I close my eyes, and think of home, 
Em                             D
Another city goes by, in the night, 
         C9                          Em  
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it til it's gone away, 
        D                               C9
And my heart is lying there and will be til my dying day.

G   C        D
So      understand
      G                       D                          C9
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years, 
G    C                D 
Face up... make your stand,
    G               D              C9 
And realize you're living in the golden years.

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind, 
Can't ease this pain, so easily, 
When you can't find the words to say, it's hard to make it through another day, 
And it makes me wanna cry, and throw my hands up to the sky.

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years, 
Face up... make your stand, 
And realise you're living in the golden years.

Thanks for the tab. The only thing I think that is incorrect is in the Chorus, the 2nd and 4th G should be an E.
ex. At "Don't Waste" (E)
then "and realize" (E)
Otherwise great tab.

I want to post or [tab]
