This is a cover The Gaslight Anthem did of Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise's "Once 
Upon A Time".

It's a pretty neat song and I think this is pretty close. Played in D standard tuning 
(D, G, C, F, A, D).

These are just the chords, edited from wraith88's tab which also has some of the lead 
parts. Some chords I think he got wrong ironed out, as well as put into D standard because 
that's by far the easiest way to play it without too many barre chords etc.
