Don't Know When But A Day Is Gonna Come
by Bright Eyes

you can listen to the song to see how to pick this but i just strum it.

D  x00230
C  x30030
G  x20030
A# x10030

basically high E is always open and dont play low E at all.

i didnt bother to look up the actual chord names because that would have meant extra work.

riff1   d|--3-2-0---|
riff2   d|--3-2-----|

yeah... three notes isnt much of a riff but i didnt know what else to call it.

D                                  riff1
Is it true what I heard about the Son of God?
Did he come to save? Did he come at all?
          riff2     C           riff2 B
And if I dried his feet with my dirty hair,
          A#            D      riff1
would he make me clean again?

[this pattern gets repeated for the whole song basically. the few times when it breaks 
to repeat lines and such, i just play D.]

They say they don't know when, but a day is gonna come,
when there won't be a moon and there won't be a sun.
It will just go black, it will just go back
to the way it was before.

I knew a lovely girl with such pretty pride,
and every man wanted her, yeah and so did I.
Yeah, and so did I. But she up and died
in a fit of vanity.

Now men with purple hearts carry silver guns.
And they'll kill a man for what his father's done.
But what my father did, you know it don't mean shit.
I'm not him.

And you think I need some discipline, well, I had my share.
I've been sent to my room. I've been sat in a chair.
And I held my tongue. I didn't plug my ears.
No, I got a good talking to.

Now I don't know why, but I still try to smile
when they talk at me like I'm just a child.
Well, I'm not a child. No, I am
much younger than that.

And now I've read some books and I've grown quite brave.
If I could just speak up, I think I would say
that there is no truth. There is only you
and what you make the truth.

So I'll just sing my songs, and I'll pass a hat.
Then I'll leave your town and I'll never look back.
No, I don't look back because the road is clear
and laid out ahead of me.

Now I'll get home, I'll meet my friends at our favorite bar.
We'll get some lighter heads for our heavy hearts.
And we'll share a drink. Yeah we'll share our fears
and they will know how I love them.
They will know how I love.
They will know how I love them.
I'm nothing without their love.

Now I don't know when, but a day is gonna come
when there won't be a moon and there won't be a sun.
It will all go black. It will all go back
to the way it's supposed to be.

Is it true what they say about the Son of God?
Did he die for us? Did he die at all?
And if I sold my soul for a bag of gold to you,
which one of us would be the foolish one?
Which one of us would be the fool?
Which one of us would be the foolish one?
Which one of us would be the fool?

Could you please start explaining?

You know, I need some understanding.

I could do good with some explaining.
You know. I want to understand.

that's the song. direct questions or comments or whatever to jesus.m.guerrero@gmail.com

Use Dm instead of D and G instead of B and its a lot closer....
