Song: Way Back When
Artist: Buck 65
Album: Situation
Label: Warner
Written and Performed By: Buck 65 (and Scratch Bastid I believe?)
Tabbed By: ultimatelefty

Haven't made a tab in a while, so I figured I'd go easy (I do that a lot!).
Not much of a rap fan but love Buck 65, Canadian, doesn't look like a rapper,
and doesn't rap like mainstream rappers either! Figured hey, I'll tab him,
so I did! Hope somebody looks at this, and likes it, and gives it a rating
or a comment, but I'm not too worried :P but still, as always, please
rate, comment, and enjoy!

This guitar line is played in most parts throughout the song, if you
listen you can here it playing behing the lead keyboard(I think it's a 
keyboard?). There's only one part where the guitar in Way Back When
is different, and that's during the beginning of the second verse, which
goes like this:

                                             ^(at this point, main riff 
                                               comes back in, playing 
                                               overtop)

and just because this tab is long enough for a rap song, I'll add in the 
lyrics for ya's ;D

[Verse 1:]
Old days golden covering the bases
Back when we used to punch each other in the faces
Under my skin try on the ions
See how it feels let bygones be bygones
Past thieves store script to the well known
That's when we did it No shit from the elbow
Underground meant something low water apocolypse
Cast in the trees Robots & rocket ships

[Chorus:]
Way back when,Solid Gold,That song on the radio's nice (x4)

[Verse 2:]
Face for hands Trash in the can
Cash in the plan Flash in the pan
Baseball, baseball Makin' the catches
Tearin the roof off Playing with matches

Bump to bruise Dumped by the girlfriend
Satan n Santa Claus Waiting for the world's end
Dancing in the bathroom Suffering in hatred
Cutting the trees down but nothing is sacred

Drunk by lightning Brand new exciting bands
Writing grants we might have had a fighting chance
Words like weapons that dealt a crushing blow
Under the stars on the edge of touch & go

Boogey man, dirty books, fingers crossed just in case
Sadly mistaken Trying to make it to second base
Men drew lines/ Young boys drew knives
Every study Every body had to lie

[Chorus:]
Way back when,Solid Gold,That song on the radio's nice (x4)

[Bridge:]
Right right back to the past
Like it was, like it was
Cause it ain't like it was in the old days

[Verse 3:]
Dry heaves it's always so wide, grief
Had to learn just to be so naïve
Odd jobs about stories & soul models
Living in a world of superheros and role models
Big deals out of limits of friendship
Stopping stars, photoshopping stars cars off bridges
Man of the rodeo Women of burlesque
Epic battles & apples on the teacher's desk
Crying wolves, awaking in the cave
Weakness secrets taken to the grave
The bigger, the better
Unfair & so drastic
Things made it work, long days and no plastic
Fuzi's way to turn
45ths, 33rds Limits untested
First kisses & dirty words
Devils in the details God saw air, buddy
Bad joke but ha ha very funny!

[Chorus:]
Way back when, Solid Gold, That song on the radio's nice (x4)
Way,back,when
Cause it ain't like it was in the old days
Old days, old days
