Tuning: Drop D


This is an amazing and emotional new song off of Against the Current's début record 'In Our Bones'. 

I love this song and it's really easy to play! The bass and rhythm guitar are really just playing
root notes and power chords which allows for you to add some flavour to into in the transition between
chords if you want! 

I play this in Drop D but can be easily played in standard. 

The one trick to 100% nailing this song is to get that the lyrics in the verse come in on the "3"
in the A chord which means when you're done with the chorus at F#m you should start playing the A right then.

Thanks to zevaz815 for the improvment upon the lead!

[Verse]

 A           E                     D
  Waited all night for you to come home
 A          E                  D
  I always hated sleeping alone (sleeping alone)
               A            E
  Watching the roses wither away
             F#m                        D 
  Wishing my memories would die out the same
 A             E                      D
  I waited all night, yeah, you never came


[Chorus]

             D                 A
  I miss the long nights under street lights
           E                   F#m 
  When our hearts were made of gold
              D               A
  I miss the feeling that we had then
          E             F#m  
  We were never growing old
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, 
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh,  

(After playing the F#m for 4 counts, change to A for 4 counts that bleeds into the verse)


[Verse]

 A           E                          D 
  Everyone's trying to help me move on (move on)
 A                 E                      D 
  They say it gets better in the long run (long run)
                          A                 E
  You could say that I've had a couple good days
               F#m                       D
  But nobody's eyes shine quite the same way
 A             E                      D
  I waited all night, yeah, you never came


[Chorus]
(Play Each Chord For 4 Counts)

             D                 A
  I miss the long nights under street lights
           E                   F#m 
  When our hearts were made of gold
              D               A
  I miss the feeling that we had then
          E             F#m  
  We were never growing old
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, 
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh,

A///|E///|D///|////

A            E                     D
  Waited all night for you to come home
A          E                     D
  I always hated sleeping alone (sleeping alone)
                  A                       E 
  I hope that the lipstick I left on your face
                     F#m                  D (argeggio down and hold for emotion)
  Stays red like the roses I laid on your grave


[Final chorus]
(GO CRAZY!)

             D                 A
  I miss the long nights under street lights
           E                   F#m 
  When our hearts were made of gold
              D               A
  I miss the feeling that we had then
          E             F#m  
  We were never growing old
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, 
                  D
  Yeah, I miss it all
             A              E              F#m
  Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh, Whoa oh-oh-oh,

Hey Matt,
I think this is a great tab btw but i think that the riff is more like the one above, at least it sounds a bit better. Anyways the chords are accurate so Good Job.
