Green Day Life During Wartime
Cover song
Tabbed by Liam
Email: guitar_rocker_47@hotmail.com
Tuning Standard

This not actually played by Green Day but just Billie Joe, I downloaded this from
or some other audio searching site I cant actually remember, just stick the title in google
you’ll get it. There is many recorded versions on the net, this is the one where Billie 
“this song is called Life During Wartime” before he starts, have fun and I’m tabbing
he plays it so its easier and there will be no order at the bottom.
