                             Promises - The Morning Benders
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Matt Zartman
Email: la7crosse11@aol.com

Tuning: Standard

This tab is a basic outline of the song.  There are many arpeggios and
random riffs being played by the 2nd guitar.  This tab is a good starting
point, though.



Intro/Main Riff

     E               C#m
e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|--------------4-------------|
A|---7/-------6---6--4/-------|
E|---7/---4-7-----------------|




--Intro--

*Main Riff x2*


--Verse--

*Main Riff x2*
This spirit is holding us down,
We shit our shoulders in deep.
Pulling us to the light,
Toasted our backs in the sun.

         F#m                   C#m
And I waited to hear the next call,
        F#m       B7       Emaj7
We got all our ears pressed against the wall.


--Verse 2--

*Main Riff x2*
But now our days are set straight,
We're seeing it all eye to eye.
The balance is still chasing after,
Just hanging on as you walk by.

     F#m                      E
And they say it's only natural,
 F#m                    E
They say we're coming along just fine.
   C#m                                    F#m    B7
But I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
    C#m                        F#m       B7                  Emaj7
And I know, I know this won't last, a second longer than it has.


--Bridge--

E--Ab--C#m---- x2

 E   Ab      C#m       E    Ab     C#m
Children you will, be cared for at once,
    E   Ab     C#m        E   Ab    C#m 
And wanted our arms like, promises plucked from above.

*Main Riff x2*


--Verse 3-- (Same as second verse)

This world is only getting smaller,
The choices aren't ours to be made.
And I feel like wasting my days,
I feel like wasting my days.

And I've seen what's coming on,
And I can't say it will all be fine.
And I can't help thinking we grew up too fast,
No I can't help thinking we grew up too fast
And I know, I know, I know this won't last, a second longer than it has.


--Outro--

*Main Riff x4*

I posted this tab, before I signed up on here, so I don't know how to change it specifically, but the bridge should have an A Major instead of the C#m. When played alone the C#m sounds fine, but it should be an A, if you're playing it with the song.
