Paper Lanterns
GREEN DAY   (1039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours)

This post is for all you true Green Day fans who have heard more than Basket Case, When I
Come Around, and Longview.  This is not for the people who say, "What?!  Green Day has more
than one album???"  In any case, here goes:

(INTRO:  A G-G D-D A-A   all barre chords)

	(verse 1)
A	         G
Now I rest my head from
	  D		A
Such an endless dreary time.
A                          G
A time of hope and happiness
        D                    A
That had you on my mind.
A                                   G
Those days are gone and now it seems
     D                   A
As if I'll get some rest.
A              	       G
But now and then I'll see you again
       D                          A
And put my heart to the test.

D                           E                      A-A D-A
So when are all my problems going to end?
D                        E
I'm understanding now that we are
A      D
Only friends.
          G                    D
To this day I'm asking why
(N.C.)                        A G-G D-D A-A
I still think about you.

	(verse 2)
As the days go on I wonder
will this ever end?
I find it hard to keep control
When you with your boyfriend.
I do not mind if all I an is
Just a friend to you.
But all I want to know right now
Is if you think about me too.

Well, Billie Joe Plays it with Full Step Down Guitar, so that is the Tab if you want to play it with Standarttuning!!!
Good Work man!! Sounds pretty good and kicks asses ^^
Maybe you could have tabbed the Solo too, buT I know how to play it, so the Chords was everything I needed!

Good work

it's a quarter step out of tune. In fact, I'm pretty sure everything past this song on "1,039" is a quarter step down, too. Good job though.
