There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is how it was played at that Jaded in Chicago MTV thing. 
I don't know why he would play it in a different key, so if
it doesn't sound right, sorry about that. Tune to Eb.

B A A E E B B
B A A E E B B

[Verse 1]
B             F#
Now I rest my head from
        E              B
Such an endless dreary time
  B                 F#
A time of hopes and happiness
     E             B
That had you on my mind
      B                 F#
Those days are gone and now it seems
   E                B
As if I'll get some rest
    B                 F#
But now and then I'll see you again
       E                B                           
And it puts my heart to test

[Chorus]
   E               F#
So when are all my problems 
         B
Going to end?
    E             F#
I'm understanding now that
       B    G#
We are only friends 
        A              E
To this day I'm asking why
                    B A A E E B B 4x
I still think about you

[Verse 2]
As the days go on I wonder
Will this ever end ?
I find it hard to keep control
When you're with your boyfriend
I do not mind if all I am is 
Just a friend to you
But all I want to know right now
Is if you think about me too ?

(Chorus)

[Solo] (go crazy -- make something up)

(Chorus)

GREEN DAY   (1039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours)

This post is for all you true Green Day fans who have heard more than Basket Case, When I
Come Around, and Longview.  This is not for the people who say, "What?!  Green Day has more
than one album???"  In any case, here goes:

(INTRO:  A G-G D-D A-A   all barre chords)

(Verse 1)
A	         E
Now I rest my head from
	  D		A
Such an endless dreary time.
A                          G
A time of hope and happiness
        D                    A
That had you on my mind.
A                       E            
Those days are gone and now it seems
     D              A
As if I'll get some rest.
   A                  G
But now and then I'll see you again
    D                   A
And put my heart to the test.

(Chorus)
   D               E                 A A D A
So when are all my troubles going to end?
    D             E
I'm understanding now that we are
A    F#
Only friends.
        G              D
To this day I'm asking why
N.C.                A G G D D A A
I still think about you.

(Verse 2)
As the days go on I wonder
will this ever end?
I find it hard to keep control
When you with your boyfriend.
I do not mind if all I an is
Just a friend to you.
But all I want to know right now
Is if you think about me too.

(Chorus)
