Day After Day - Darrell Scott

Tabbed by: Russell B.
Email: rsb112084@gmail.com
 
This is my first time transcribing a song so I don't expect it to be absolutely perfect. You
should be able to get a good idea for how the song goes using these chords.
I hear Darrell Scott using random hammer on's and pull off's surrounding the D chord and Dsus
so feel free to use them interchangeably.  Note sure about the proper chord namings so here is
a diagram 

Tuning: Standard

Em:     022000     Dsus: xx0230    C:   x32010
D/F#:   2x0230     Asus: x02200    B/A: x20010
Gsus:   3x0030    *Asus: xx0450    Am:  x02210

For  *Asus indication you can slide the Dsus up two frets to the Asus
Either version works for me

[Intro]
Em,D/F#,Gsus,   Dsus2,*Asus   C,B/A,Am,  G/D,D/F#,Em

If I am playing this song solo, I like to use this intro to thicken the sound.  The extra Asus indicates
how many times the strings are played in each formation.

(For the verse strum pattern, strike the root then strum entire chord,Up,Down,X)

[Verse 1]
    Em
Dad never started drinking 'til he was thirty-five
     C
And once he found the power

He made up for his lost time
   Dsus
Go outside and catch a cricket, then unplug the phone
           C
Said their singing kept him company
     B
When we'd leave him alone

[Verse 2]
          Em
Those were days of feeling awkward
    
Being seventeen and such
       C
Hoping I could find some comfort

In a deacon's daughter's touch
    Dsus
I'd spend time out in the desert

Feeling lonely with a friend
         C
And we'd talk about leaving
           B
But it was years before we did

[Chorus]
       C    G     D
Oh the time moves slow
              C  G         D
And you can't go where you want to go
            C    G     D
But, oh the time slips away
      Em      C    D
Day after day, day after day

Day after day

[Intro Chords]

[Verse 3]
       Em

Well I found myself a genie

Said she's grant a wish for me
    C
And all I had to do for her was love her endlessly
     Dsus
So I asked my dad about it and he said

Son, life's a game we play
      C
So I closed my eyes, held her and said
B
Take me away
Em
Let's live in a lighthouse on the Maritime shore
          C
And we'll hang a wreath to loneliness

Upon our lighthouse door
       Dsus
But we never made the ocean, she never followed through
     C
She said the day she left
            B
You know, I really thought you knew

[Chorus]
Bridge Jam  (Use Intro Chords with slight timing variations)

[Verse 4]
       Em
Well I went back home to see my dad

And I walked through the door
       C
To his photographs of Hank and Johnny

Lying on the floor
    Dsus
Hank had a hole shot through his mouth

And Johnny in the head
      C
There were crickets in hallway
    B
And Dad awake in bed
       Em
He was sitting in the darkness

With just a cigarette light
        C
Said he went a little crazy

Sometime in the night
        Dsus
I never asked him about the pictures

Though it was clear to me
   C
He shot 'em for the life
        B
And the man he wouldn't be

[Chorus]
       C    G     D
Oh the time moves slow
              C  G         D
And you can't go where you want to go
            C    G     D
But, oh the time slips away
      Em      C    D
Day after day, day after day

Day after day
