Song: The Story of My Old Man Band: Good Charlotte Album: The Young And The Hopeless Tabbed by: Josiah (email@example.com) This is a really easy song. The lyrics might not be completely correct but i don't know because the CD i have is burned. Verse 1: Power chords of course E5 F#5 I don?t know too much about too much of my old man B5 E5 F#5 I know he walked right out the door and we never saw him again B5 E5 F#5 Last I heard he was at the bar doin? himself in B5 E5 F#5 I know I got that same disease I got stuck with it from him Chorus: Guitar 1 G#5 F#5 E5 This is the story of my old man G#5 F#5 E5 Just like his father before him G#5 F#5 E5 I?m tellin? you do anything you can G#5 F#5 E5 So you don?t end up just like them....like them Chorus: Guitar 2 G--8-8-8886-6-6664-4-4444-4-444-| D--x-x-xxxx-x-xxxx-x-xxxx-x-xxx-| A--6-6-6664-4-4442-2-2222-2-222-| PLAY 4X DURING CHORUS Verse 2: Clean picking (regular chords, not power chords) B G#m E Monday he woke up and hated life B G#m E Drank until Wednesday and left his wife B G#m E Thursday through Saturday lost everything B G#m E(stop) Woke up on Sunday miserable again Interlude between verses 2 and 3: G--4-4-4444-4-444-| D--x-x-xxxx-x-xxx-| A--2-2-2222-2-222-| PLAY 3X Verse 3: Interlude E5 F#5 I remember baseball games and working on the car B5 E5 F#5 He told me that he loved me and that I would go far B5 E5 F#5 He taught me how to work hard and stick up for myself B5 E5 F#5 I wish it wasn?t too hard to listen to himself REPEAT CHORUS REPEAT VERSE 2 but instead of stopping at the end, keep the chord progression going a couple more times. Break: Just play the chorus the same way with both guitars Verse 4: B5 G#5 E5 Someday he?ll wish that he?d made things right (made things right) B5 G#5 E5 Long for his family and miss his wife (miss his wife) B5 G#5 E5 Remember the days he had everything (everything) B5 G#5 E5(stop) Now he?s alone and miserable again That?s it. That song rocks. It is one of the many songs about Joel?s dad (others include Complicated, Emotionless. Little Things and Waldorf Worldwide mention him). This tab is pretty much accurate so have fun with it. Peace out!
