Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The intro is played on ukelele but this way sounds decent on guitar. And I
tried to put in the count for the strumming pattern; I hope it's right but
I haven't done that in years so please correct me if it's not.  Also, the
second half of the verses has a distinct rhythm so listen to the song for
it. Enjoy!


Intro:
   +a 1 + 2 + 3 + 4e   1 + 2 + 3 + 4e+a 1 + 2 + 3 + 4e   1 + 2 + 3 + 4e+a

Verse:
A                    F#m            D                A
When we were younger time was under careful lock and key.
A              F#m                D            A
Now it's open, tipped and pourin' out all over me. 
   F#m        C#m               Bm                       F#m            C#m           Bm
Oh what a shame! that our days, you exclaimed, I thought you had meant they were long.
     F#m          C#m             Bm        F#m        C#m    A
Not 'till the night when I turned 25, I saw that I had it all wrong.

(Between the two verses you can play half the intro or just keep playing an A chord)

Verse:
A             F#m              D            A
I was gettin' tired of lettin' all my hours pass.
A              F#m              D                A
Hopin' someday soon or some way everything would last.
   F#m        C#m            Bm                    F#m        C#m         Bm
Oh What a shame! When I look at your frame, I know someday it will be dust.
    F#m            C#m               Bm                    F#m             C#m      A
Not that I thought it's that close, 'cause it's not, but I guess it's just creepin' up.

(Between the verse and chorus you can play the full intro or A chords)

Chorus:
A                    D   A                         E
Oh and it's not that bad, it's all this time we've had.
C#m                  D               A                    E
Things that could be, became history. We'll never know instead.
A                    D    A                    E
Oh we're not too far gone. It hasn't been that long.
C#m               D
Oh and our tea cup is getting filled up.
A                      E             A(x4)
So we'll never have to dread getting old.

Bridge:
F#m     D
    Ohhhhhhhhh
F#m     D
    Ohhhhhhhhh
F#m     D
    Ohhhhhhhhh
B       E
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

C#m                     D               A                 E
Oh things that could be, became history. We'll never know instead.

C#m               D
Oh and our tea cup is getting filled up.
A                      E             A
So we'll never have to dread getting old,
        A            A            A
Getting old, getting old, getting old!

I really like the tab and this song. There was a video posted recently by smartpunk of this song being played live with a solo acoustic guitar. I tried to tab it out myself but failed. Maybe you could check out the video and make some adjustments. I think your tab as is is great. I'll include the link below. Thanks a lot for putting this tab out there for people like me. Keep it up.
