Hello, I'm NickStratoStyle and I'm going to show you how to play the song "When the Time 
Comes" by Tom Petty.
I hope you find this tab accurate,( this song is a little bit strange) but I think is 
correct, so... let's rock!!
(Sorry for my english, i know it isn't very fluent, i hope you'll understand anyway.)

                     When the Time Comes

Key song: E

Some chords are suspended (Gadd6, F#m7, Dadd2) but you can play them normally; besides, 
i play the E chord without the G#:
E( I play it like this in the verse of this song, I think it sounds better)
e-0|
b-0|
g-x|
d-2|
a-2|
E-0|

Gadd6:    F#m7:     Dadd2
e-0|      e-0|      e-0|
b-3|      b-2|      b-3|
g-0|      g-2|      g-2|
d-0|      d-4|      d-0|
a-2|      a-x|      a-0|
E-3|      E-x|      E-x|

INTRO:

Guitar 1:
     E   | Gadd6 |   F#m7 |   E   |    E  | Gadd6 |  F#m7 |   E   |

b----------------------------------0-0---0-3-----3-2-----2-0-0----|
g-------------------------------------------0-------2-------------|
d-----------------------------------2--------0-------4------2-----|
a-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------------------------|
  (Palm mute                     )




Verse: During the verse, the guitar plays like this:

    E   | Gadd6 |   F#m7 |   E      |
e-----------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------|
g----------7---7---6---6---4--------|
d-2---2----5---5---4---4---2--------|
a-2---2----5---5---4---4---2--------|
E-0---0-----------------------------|


    E                     Gadd6
This might sound strange, it might seem dumb
   F#m7                       E
Depends on the side that you take it in from
    E                  Gadd6
Depends on the time, depends on the day
 F#m7                       E
Depends on a lot of things, who can say

In this verse, you can play the chords as power chords:

 A      E    A          E    A          E     B   E
I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
    A                   E      A            E
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
         A         E         B       E
Will you stand by me when the time comes

|  E     |  Gadd6| F#m7  |   E
e------0------0-------0-------0--|
b-0-0---0-3-----3-2-----2-0-0----|
g----------0-------2-------------|
d--2--------0-------4------2-----|
a--------------------------------|
E--------------------------------|

    E                     Gadd6
Baby do you understand, am I making this clear
       F#m7                       E
Are you tuning me out 'cause I'm coming off weird
 E                   Gadd6
Well I don't care, that's all right
 F#m7              E
It's okay, I don't mind

 A      E    A          E    A          E     B   E
I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
    A                   E      A            E
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
         A         E         B       E
Will you stand by me when the time comes

|  E     |  Gadd6| F#m7  |   E
e------0------0-------0-------0--|
b-0-0---0-3-----3-2-----2-0-0----|
g----------0-------2-------------|
d--2--------0-------4------2-----|
a--------------------------------|
E--------------------------------|

During this part of the song , one guitar goes like this:
(I know it sounds strange, but if you listen to the song on the headphones, i'm sure 
you'll be able to hear it.
e--------------|
b--------------|
g---6----------|
d-6---6-4---4--|  x 14 times( until the final B)
a---------4---4|
E--------------|

In this part of the song, I play the E chord like a power chord, in this way:
E:
e-x|
b-x|
g-4|
d-2|
a-2|
E-x|
 A    E        Dadd2   A          E       Dadd2  A
This ain't the right time to say what's on my   mind
 C#m       A    E     Dadd2 A
I know, but I look in your eyes
          E     Dadd2  A     C#m
And there is no real life at all
      B
Baby hold on

  E               Gadd6
And someday soon you'll come around
 F#m7           E
You know where I can be found
 E                          Gadd6
When your heart feels right, seek me out
 F#m7                        E
We can talk more then babe, but right now

 A      E    A          E    A          E     B   E
I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
    A                   E      A            E
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
         A         E         B       E
Will you stand by me when the time comes

End:
