These days (J.B.Jovi, R.Sambora)

from the Bon Jovi album of the same name.


Intro C - D | Em (6x)

Verse 1
         C                       D                          Em
I was walking around, just a face in the crowd try to keep myself out of the rain
          C                           D                                Em
Saw a vagabond king wear a styrofoam crown wondered if I might end up the same
            C                   D           Em               C                        D                  G
There's a man out on the corner, singing old songs about change everybody got their cross to bare, these days.

Verse 2
               C                       D                          Em
She came looking for some shelter with a suitcase full of dreams
              C                       D                          Em
To a motel room on the boulevard I guess she's trying to be James Dean
     C                      D           Em                  C                     D                   Em
She's seen all the disciples and all the 'wanna be's' no one wants to be themselfs these days
C            D                   G
Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days

Chorus
          C           D                    Em          C                      D                  G
These days the stars ain't out of reach - These days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no
C                D              G                    C                               D                   G
These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age - There ain't nobody left but us these days

Verse 3 (like Verse 2)
Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, trying to learn to fly
From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes
His momma said he was crazy - he said momma "I've got to try" Don't you know that all my heroes died
And I guess I rather die f f f fade away - yeah

Chorus
C           D                    Em          C                      D                  G
These days the stars ain't out of reach But these days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no
C                D              G                    C                         D                    Em
These days are fast, nothing lasts it's a graceless age - Even innocence has caught the midnight train
C                 D                   G
There ain't nobody left but us these days

Bridge
C Am C Am
C         Am                        C                            Am
I know Rome's still burning though the times have changed
C         Am                  D                                    (C)
This world keeps turning round and round and round and round these days

Solo C G D (4x)


Chorus
These days the stars ain't out of reach But these days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no
These days are fast, nothing lasts it's a graceless age - Even innocence has caught the midnight train


Chorus
These days the stars ain't out of reach But these days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no
These days are fast, nothing last there ain't no time to waste - There ain't nobody left to take the blame

C             D                            G
There ain't nobody left but us these days
C - D | Em            C             D                            G
                       There ain't nobody left but us these days

End
C - D | Em | C - D | G | C - D | Em | C - D | Em

Awesome stuff. Best version out there. I like to play a Cadd9 (X32030) in place of the C in the Intro/verse. I'm not sure if it belongs there, but it sounds nice - especially when picking the chords for the intro.
