Green Day - Macy's Day Parade
Warning 2000
Tabbed by ShreKula

This is very nice song by Green Day, that's why I want you to play it right.
All tab's here are almost right, but they missing one thing, they all have wrong 
second chorus part. I will write all song again and when you play it you will see 
what I mean. All chords are barre, they sounds better then just short power 
chords. And for better sound I recommend using hand strumming. 

Trick in Chorus #2- 

After Chord B, play A#/B it is basically Bmaj with A# bass.

Enjoy!

When I was a kid I thought
       G#m
I wanted all the things that I hadn't got
E                 F#                 B
  Oh, but I learned the hardest way
B                          G#m
Then I realized what it took
                                             E
To tell the difference between thieves and crooks
           F#                    B
When all along it was me and you


[Chorus 2]

The one I've never known
             F#
Cause now I know
                B
It's all that I wanted

           B                A#/B           G#m

    F#                 E                   F#
The one I've never known,  and where it goes
       B                   A#/B     G#m
And I'm thinking about the only road
    F#                 E                    
The one I've never known, and where it goes

This is right (I think the only 100% right tab on this site) but just an FYI this is a little different than the way it is played by Billie live , play the B and Abm chords on the 6th string and the E and F# on the 5th string. Then for the chorus play them all on the 5th string (with E being an open chord). It's much easier that way and it is the way Billie plays it.

Source: Just watched 2 close up videos of Billie playing this live. Check these out for the strumming pattern too.
