Tabbed by Sam Borchard

Played with a guitar tuned down a whole step. So the fingering is G, but song is actually in F.

There are 3 main patterns in the song, tabbed out below for the first guitar.

                             Pattern A                                         Filler

The second chord in each bar of pattern C is strummed down, flamenco style, with the index finger.


Intro: A, Filler


A Welcome home my son, it's been so very long, I know that you're here to surrender.
A The disappointing days I suffered at your age were more than I care to remember.
B Before you throw the towel and turn your engines out, don't expect to spit all that you tasted from your mouth
A After all you've seen, the most you'll hope to be is pretending to be a pretender.

C instrumental

A The years that I been through, I met a gentle few who say that they love and they mean it.
A The others that I met, they're decent folks I guess, but all that they love is achievement.
B Their swagger and their dress, the trappings of success, the butter and the milk of what it takes to get ahead
A Any given night, you'll catch them dead to rights painting their name on the ceiling.

C instrumental

Solo over the verse (AABA), Filler

A Remember in the end that many of your friends would rather be dead than uncertain.
A They want a simple yes, or even better yet, a promise the next life is perfect.
B I promise that it's not, but then what have they got? Only fifty years, they never gave a moment's thought.
A Anyone they find who tells them otherwise, they'll follow him backwards and shirtless.

C Instrumental

A Welcome home my son, it's been so very long, I know that you're here to surrender.


Enjoy!

I think you made a transposing mistake.
The first part (A) is written in F, though the second
and third part (B & C) is written in G.
But there is no modulation or anything like that.
