		The Innocent - Goldfinger, Good Charlotte, Mest
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By: Kevin Buzby
E-Mail: kjlee@bu.edu

Tuning: EADGBE

Song Notes:
Listen for palm mutes and pick scrapes.  They are quite evident.  If you don't
know how to do a pick scrape correctly you just take your pick and go from the
bridge (tail piece) and scrape your pick, holding it perpendicular to the
strings, to the headstock.  Timing is also easy so you should pick right up on
it. Just listen. Easy enough. :)

Intro: (Drums + Piano)

Verse 1:
D                A              B        A   G
The start of Armageddon, It was just another day
D                A              G (pick scrape)    A
We all saw the news nothing to say
D                   A            B         A    G
So many friends are missing, and family members gone
D                 A                 G
So we all pray to God "help them be strong"
D                  A       B           A    G 
And now we stand together, remembering that day
D                      A            G
The lives we live will never be the same

Chorus 1:
D                      A
And we don't know why
B                F#
The innocent die
G                    A             B
Will this world ever find a way to change?
D                      A
And we don't know why
B                          F#
But we know its not right
G                 A           B
Don't know why so many had to die
G                    A           D (pick scrape)
We don't know why so many had to die

Verse 2:
D                 A                B           A     G
Hate is turned to others for their religion or their skin
D                       A          G
But hate can't stop the problem it began
D           A      B          A G
Everyone is angry, people are afraid
D                     A                 G
And no one knows what decisions will be made

Chorus 2:
D                  A
We don't know why
B                 F#
The innocent die
G                    A             B
Will this world ever find a way to change?
D                     A
And we don't know why
B                          F#
But we know it's not right
G                    A           B
We don't know why so many had to die
G                 A           D (pick scrape)
Don't know why so many had to die

The innocent die (don't know why)

Will this world ever find a way to change
D                       A
And we don't know why (don't know why)
B                          F#
But we know its not right (don't know why)
G              A           B
Will any of us ever be the same
G                A           D
Will any of this ever be the same
