Jack, he sits back, collects his thoughts for a moment
G              D       C                 D    G
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean

Ooh yeah, Life goes on

Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, sayin'

Ooh yeah, Life goes on

Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, rock on

Let the Bible belt come and save my soul
Holdin' on to sixteen as long as you can
Change is comin' 'round real soon, make us women and men

You need to cappo the second fret for this to be played in the right key. Nice job, tho. more accurate than others.

really good tab, easy to learn although the first and second chorus are reversed, when listening to the song the intro lick comes after second verse
