Intro and verse F# is on the 9..... Pre-Chorus/Chorus... on 2

Intro: C# F# x2
C#                           F#
Mamma, she's still got that picture
            C#                  F#
Of me and Katie on homecomin' night
             C#            F#        
She looked pretty in that fancy dress
C#                                 F#            
  But that girl was a barefoot blue jean princess
       (Pre-Chorus)
A#              G#
A hand full of rocks and daddy's pine ladder
F#
Sure did come in handy
A#                  G#                 
For a teenage boy thinkin' all that mattered
      F#
Was a kiss that taste like candy
        (Chorus) 
C#                                   
Back in the day we were wild and free
G#
She was my dashboard drummer
G#                         F#
Butterflies in the backseat
A#                 G#
Little footprints on my window
C#
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
     G#                                 F#
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A#                  G#                    F#
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
      A#            G#                F# (Let Ring)
While the water washed our innocence away
                 C#
Back in the day 
              (Verse 2)
C#                                                   
Friday nights I'd look up there in the bleachers
C#
And I can see her,
C# 
with my letter man's jacket on
C#
And I still got this scar here on my right hand
C#
From when Bobby told her she deserved a better man
      (Pre-Chorus)
      A#                     G#         
Aw.. She hung right with me down in panama city
        F#
Raisin' hell on our senior trip 
     A#            
and man ain't it funny 
     G#
it gets the best of me
    F#               
And I just can't forget

I just can't forget
     (Chorus)
C# 
Back in the day we were wild and free
G#
She was my dashboard drummer
                      F#
Butterflies in the backseat
           A#            G#
Little footprints on my window
C#
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
           G#                           F#
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
          A#              G#              F#
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
          A#                 G#         F#(Let Ring)
While the water washed our innocence away

Back in the day   (Low F# Build-up) 
      (BRIDGE)
 G#       
Summer was over
                         F#
College was callin' man I had to watch her leave
G#                             A#        F#
But I still wonder if she ever thinks of me
     (CHORUS)
C#                                   
'Cause back in the day we were wild and free
G#
She was my dashboard drummer
                      F#
Butterflies in the backseat
         A#              G#
Little footprints on my window
C#                          
Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
           G#                            F#
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
         A#              G#               F#
A little sun dress layin up there on the bank
          A#                 G#          F#
While the water washed our innocence away
B
Feels like yesterday
C#
Back in the day
C#                 End C# 
Back in the day

If you put a Capo on first fret their is no need for any of the sharps

I would say A#minior instead of A#, or as BGNation said put a capo on to get rid of the sharps... A#minor is the relative minor of C#major and it is in the key of C#major...otherwise it sounds fine

I dont think so... Brantley does this song in Eb tuning. Hit transpose up once and tune half step down to Eb and there you have it. BTW why is this tab is missing chords in the 2nd verse?
