Richie Sambora - Seven Years Gone
Music & Lyrics: Richie Sambora & Luke Ebbin
4/4 Timing  92 bpm   Key G(?) Solo probably in E minor Pentatonic

Intro: Bm / G / D / Am(7th fret root)

1 Another change of season
2 Hung up cold and reeling
1 slipping through my life
2 Wounded deep inside
1 I can't recall believing
2 Can't find a road to healing
  Bm                           Am
1 that I'd make it here alive
2 when you're blinded by your pride
1 Steady wind is blowing
2 The hourglass is broken
1 the clouds don't look the same
2 Sand is slipping through your hands
  Am                  G
1 You can't deny the thunder
2 By your chasing what's been stolen
  G                               Am
1 when you're living through the rain
2 change is making, making other plans

Bm                             G
Like the moth dances with the light
          D                   Am
Sometimes a shadow burns too bright
Bm                        G
Shattered silence in the night
         D        Am
You wake up, move on (On 2nd and 3rd time, skip to 2nd part of chorus below)
Bm              G
You're 7 years gone
         D        Am
7 years gone

Chorus (2nd and 3rd Time Only):
      Bm                       G
Times are changed, times that went too fast
D                              Am
tearing moments from the past
      Bm                  G
While today's singing yesterday's songs
         D        Am
You wake up, move on
         D        Am (/  Bm / G) – (On 3rd time repeats only)      
7 years gone                                    (Repeat 3x on 3rd time)

Bridge:                         (first instrumental part played at a higher register, 5th to 10th frets)
A5 B5 A5 B5 B5 B5
A5 B5 A5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 
C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 A5

A5    B5                        (played near top, note there's a lot of sliding from chord to chord)
Time, time,
A5    B5   B5 B5
time, time ticking,
A5 B5 A5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 
time, time ticking away
C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 A5

A5    B5 
That's life
A5    B5   B5   B5
it's all about living
A5 B5 A5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 
taking it day by day

A5    B5      A5    B5   A5 B5
Blind, blind, leave it behind
A5 B5 A5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 C#5 
Singing a different song

A5  B5   A5     B5     B5               
One day, you're waking up               
D (hold)
You're seven years
Seven years gone

Bm / G / D / Am(7th fret root) (Just like Intro)

(3rd time at Chorus)

(Solo played over same chords as intro/Chorus)


Some of the bridge may be off, but this is close I think. I based this off a video floating about You Tube, 
with Richie and Orianthi playing this in a studio unplugged.
