Great song. Wasn’t sure how accurate some of the other tabs were so I tried figuring it 
for myself. It might not be perfect but I think it’s pretty accurate. Any comments let 
know

Tuning: ½ step down (so you can play along with the cd)

Moderately.

Intro – G (1 bar) Em (1/2 bar) D(1/2 bar) x 2

(repeat strumming pattern for 1st verse)

G		               Em
Hand out the window, floating on air,
		    D			G	Em	D
Just a flick of the wrist and I’m waving you goodbye
G		     		  Em
Drive past the lifeguard stand, where I’d sit around
D		      G		Em
Waiting for you to remember
D     C
As I drive

Chorus

G		        Cadd9		D
How the girls can turn to ghosts before your eyes
	  Em	        D
And the very dreams that led to them
    Bb		     C
Are keeping them from dying
G		           Cadd9		  D
How the grace with which she walked into your life
      Em               D
Will stay with you in your steps
    Bb              C
And pace with you awhile
Bb        C           G		Em     D
For so long...so long		So long...So
G         Em    D x2
long

Repeat chords for second verse.


Verse 2

The speaker in this door is blown
So nothing sounds quite right
(taking my time, taking this job
waving this town goodbye)*
I drive this ocean road, and remember
(The smell of your back,
 the nape of your neck I remember everything)
As I drive (waving this town goodbye)

Chorus
Play the last part twice.

		   G		Em 	D
...so long so long.

G	                                Em         D
(taking my time, taking this job, waving this town goodbye)

Da da da Da da da daa (continue playing same chords)

Bridge
C
And I will leave under the cover, summer’s kiss upon the sky
C
Like the stone face of your lover, just before she says goodbye
C
And I was certain that the season, could be held between my arms
C
Just as summer’s hold is fleeting
				G		Em	D
I was here but now I’m gone		                           I'm

G		Em	D
Gone		So long, So Long. Repeat
Da da da da da daa. Repeat
End on G

(you might want to play along with the cd to get the timing right)

Cheers dudes.

I like the tab. I think for the bridge you could try alternating between C and Cadd9 (within a line) for some variation. Good work, though!
