Artist:          Tom Petty
Song:            To Find A Friend
Album:           Wildflowers
Transcribed by:  David Podradchik

This is the best key in which to play the song, in my opinion.  If you want to play 
with the album, tune the guitar down by a full step.

       D             G
In the middle of his life
   D        G
He left his wife
    Em            Bm
And ran off to be bad
Em          Bm   A   Asus2   A
Boy, it was sad
       D            G
But he bought a new car
D           G
Found a new bar
         Em            Bm
And went under another name
   Em               Bm   A   Asus2   A
Created a whole new game

        C    Em   D       G     D      Em
And the days went by like paper in the wind
C    Em    D        G    D         Em
Everything changed, then changed again

D         G
Meanwhile then
    D         G            Em
His wife's boyfriend moved in and
              Bm
Took over the house
     Em                  Bm    A   Asus2   A
Everybody was quiet as a mouse
       D             G
And it changed their lives
D             G
Changed their plans
Em               Bm
Slowly they grew apart
Em                        Bm    A   Asus2  A
Boy, it woulda broke your heart

        C    Em   D       G     D      Em
And the days went by like paper in the wind
C    Em    D        G    D         Em
Everything changed, then changed again
C
It's hard to find a friend
C                     G     Dsus4   D   C   Csus2
