This song is my favorite song ever and I love Greenday. Most of the other tabs that
I have seen for this, though, are completely wrong so I decided to write my own for
all those of you who are desperate for one.
This is my first ever tab so if it is wrong then don’t hit me with ironing boards or
anything.
Enjoy.

Chords needed:
G       320033  (use this G, 320003 doesn’t work as well)
Cadd9   032030
D       xx0232
Em      022000
C       032010

The first part of this song is the hardest to do, so, if u cant follow it then do what I 
and improvise.

The end of this part is where Billie J starts to strum and it gets easier.

Intro- Riff 1 (X2)

Riff 1
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.

Riff 1
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.

Riff 2
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.

Riff 2
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

Riff 3
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.

Riff 4
I hope you had the time of your life.


Instrumental- G, Cadd9, D (X2)


G                       Cadd9                      D
So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.
G                     Cadd9                D
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.
Em         D           C             G
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
Em            D             C             G
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
Em             G              Em                 G
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life.


Instrumental- G, Cadd9, D (X4)
              Em, D, C, G

Em             G              Em                  G
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life


Instrumental- G, Cadd9, D (X2)


Riff 3
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
Riff 4
I hope you had the time of your life


Outro- Riff 1 (X2)
       (Finish song with a full G down stroke after riff.)

Looking back at it now I’ve probably gone into a bit too much detail on this.
However I still think that this is the most accurate tab I’ve seen (no offence
to everybody else). The first part might be wrong but the chords used are definitely
the right ones.

I don't think the intro is quite right, but I didn't know what it was so I went and bought the book 2day, and I think that one in there sounds way further off than your 1! (mainly cos it's more complicated and I can't quite play it at the same speed)

I want to post or [tab]
