Wasted Years 
Tabbed by JC (wigga123@hotmail.com)

When you play the chords, make sure you have the rhythm right,
I just repeated chords so you know when one chord ends, and the next one begins.  

Intro (Repeat 0 four times between each note)

|-12-0x4-7-0x4-8-0x4-5-0x4-7-0x4-3-0x4-5-0x4-2-0x4-3-0x4-5-0x4-2-0x4-3-0x4-|

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------| Repeat intro
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------| 4 times
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1
From the coast of gold,          across the seven seas
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-8-----8-----8-----8-----8----8-------6----6----6-----6----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|

I’m travelin’ on,                         far and wide
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-8-----8-----8-----8-----8----8-------6----6----6-----6----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|

But now it seems…
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|
|-9--------9--------9----------------------------------------------------------|
|-10------10-------10----------------------------------------------------------|
|-10------10-------10----------------------------------------------------------|
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|

I’m just a stranger to myself,      and all the things I sometimes do    
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|
|-8-----8-----8-----8-----8----8-------6----6----6-----6----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-9-----9-----9-----9-----9----9-------7----7----7-----7----------------------|
|-7-----7-----7-----7-----7----7-------5----5----5-----5----------------------|

It isn’t me but someone else
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|
|-9--------9--------9----------------------------------------------------------|
|-10------10-------10----------------------------------------------------------|
|-10------10-------10----------------------------------------------------------|
|-8--------8--------8----------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat this for the rest of the verse!

Chorus

So,                 understand,                 
|-7-----7-----7------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------------------|
|-7-----7-----7------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------------------|
|-8-----8-----8------6-----6-----6------4----4----3----3----------------------------|
|-9-----9-----9------7-----7-----7------5----5----4----4----------------------------|
|-9-----9-----9------7-----7-----7------5----5----4----4----------------------------|
|-7-----7-----7------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------------------|

Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-------5-------8------8-------------|
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-------5-------8------8-------------|
|-8---------8---------8---------8---------8----------6-------6-------9------9-------------|
|-9---------9---------9---------9---------9----------7-------7-------10-----10------------|
|-9---------9---------9---------9---------9----------7-------7-------10-----10------------|
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-------5-------8------8-------------|

Face up,                         make your stand 
|-7-------7-------7-------7------------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------|
|-7-------7-------7-------7------------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------|
|-8-------8-------8-------8------------6-----6-----6------4----4----3----3----------------|
|-9-------9-------9-------9------------7-----7-----7------5----5----4----4----------------|
|-9-------9-------9-------9------------7-----7-----7------5----5----4----4----------------|
|-7-------7-------7-------7------------5-----5-----5------3----3----2----2----------------|

And realize                           your living in the golden years
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-----5------8------8-------------|
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-----5------8------8-------------|
|-8---------8---------8---------8---------8----------6-----6------9------9-------------|
|-9---------9---------9---------9---------9----------7-----7------10-----10------------|
|-9---------9---------9---------9---------9----------7-----7------10-----10------------|
|-7---------7---------7---------7---------7----------5-----5------8------8-------------|

The other verse is the same as Verse 1. Then do the chorus again after Verse 2.
Next is the solo, starts the same as the intro, and then comes another part which
is almost impossible for me to find, so if you know it, please email it to me.
Then, it comes back to the chorus, and again comes the intro part, and that’s it.
I think its pretty close, and nobody else has these tabs here, so any
suggestions, just tell me.
