[Chords]
G        :320033
C9       :032033
Dsus4    :000233
Em7      :022033

[Verse] (play each line twice, then go to chorus)
[Tab 1]
     G                              C9             Dsus4
e|-------3--------------3--------------3------------3------|
B|----------3-------------3--------------3------------3----|
G|-------------0------------0--------------0-----2------2--|
D|---0--------------0--------------2-----------0-----------|
A|------------------------------3--------------------------|
E|-3--------------3----------------------------------------|

   Then it repeats, so it almost sounds like it goes C9, Dsus4, Gmodal. 
   So, after the end of the Dsus4 bit, go straight to the G bass note.

[Tab 2]
      Em            Dsus4           C9                G              
e|------3------------3-------------3------------3----------|
B|--------3------------3-------------3------------3--------|
G|----------0-----2------2-------------0------------0------|
D|---2----------0---------------2------------0-------------|
A|----------------------------3----------------------------|
E|-0---------------------------------------3---------------|

   Okay, tab 1 at the top is played through twice, then
   play tab 2 twice.  That's the verse.  Then, the next bit
   is played once.  That's the chorus.  Not terribly complex,
   but, hey this IS Green Day, after all.

[Tab 3]
      Em            G            Em              G       
e|------3------------3------------3-----------3------------|
B|--------3------------3------------3-----------3----------|
G|----------0------------0------------0-----------0--------|
D|---2------------0------------2-----------0---------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0------------3------------0-----------3-----------------|
   
      Em             Dsus4      
e|------3---------3------|
B|--------3---------3----|
G|----------0---------2--|
D|---2----------0--------|
A|-----------------------|
E|-0---------------------|

   Okay, now, it's important that you go straight back into the
   opening G of the verse, because the Dsus4 sort of leaves you
   hanging there.  Then play the first half of the verse once
   through, then start it all over again.
   
[Lyrics]
[Intro] G C9 Dsus4 G
(start singing) (the fingerpicking here is same as verse (see above))

[Verse 1]
G       C9             Dsus4            G
Another turning point a fork stuck in the road 
G              C9          Dsus4               G   
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
Em          Dsus4                 C9       G
So make the best of these days and don't ask why
Em         Dsus4         C9                G
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

[Chorus]
Em                  G        Em              G
It's something unpredictable in the end it's right
Em                  Dsus4        G      (where verse riff cuts back in)
I hope you have the time of your life.  (Start struming G  C  Dsus4)

[Verse 2]
G           C9              Dsus4               G
So take the photographs and stillframes in your mind
G            C9        Dsus4              G
Hang it on a shelf; it could've been good times (couldn't get this line, fix it if you know it)

Em         Dsus4       C9       G
Tatoos and memories and asking on trial
Em            Dsus4        C9            G
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

[Chorus]
Em                  G        Em              G
It's something unpredictable in the end it's right
Em                  Dsus4        G      (where verse riff cuts back in)
I hope you have the time of your life.  (Start struming G  C  Dsus4)

[Instrumental] (Strum over Violins)

[Chorus]
Em                  G        Em              G
It's something unpredictable in the end it's right
Em                  Dsus4        G      (where verse riff cuts back in)
I hope you have the time of your life.  (Start struming G  C  Dsus4)

End with [Tab 1] and then e|---------|
                          B|---------|
                          G|--2------|
                          D|----0----|
                          A|------0--|  and end on a G
                          E|---------|

[Witty sayings] "Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is an 
                 oncoming train"

                 nose, but you can't pick your friends nose."
                "I think that if rock'n'roll had another name, it
                would have been called Chuck Berry" - John Lennon
