Jackson Browne - These Days
transcribed by Brian Allen (ballen @ sterling.edu) (Remove the spaces to e-mail)

Hi, this is my first tab. I hope it helps someone out. Pretty easy song to play, but 
good. This is based off the version on
his For Everyman album. It might not be the right key, but the chords should be right. 
second and third verses are basically
the same as the first one, and the interlude is played between the verses. The rhythm 
be easy to figure out if you've heard
a version of the song before (and there are many recordings of it). Enjoy.

Unusual Chords:

 Cadd2/B:       Am/G:        F/G (if you know the real name of this chord e-mail it to 
----0----     ----0----   ----1----|
----1----     ----1----   ----1----|
----0----     ----0----   ----0----|
----0----     ----2----   ----3----|
----2----     ----0----   ----3----|
----x----     ----3----   ----1----|

Capo on the Third Fret (though you can play it in any key)


C  Cadd2/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/G  F X 2 (Strum each of the chords once except F and F/G)


      C    Cadd2/B  Am  Am/G  F  F/G  F
Well I've been out walking
       C   Cadd2/B    Am  Am/G   F  F/G  F
I dont do that much talking these days
       C    G (Note: Em can also be played instead of those chords, like in Nico's version)
These days--
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot
C         G   E
To do for you
     Am     G       F       G
And all the times I had the chance to


And I had a lover
It's so hard to risk another these days
These days--
Now if I seem to be afraid
To live the life I have made in song
Well it's just that I've been losing so long


I'll keep on moving
Things are bound to be improving these days
These days--
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
Don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them

Alternate Lyrics (from Nico's Version)

Verse 1 is the same as in Browne's

I've stopped my rambling,
I don't do too much gambling
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'll see another highway.

Verse 3 is the second verse in Browne's

I've stopped my dreaming,
I won't do too much scheming
These days, these days.
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten.
Please don't confront me with my failures,
I had not forgotten them.

Capo 5th fret for key on For Everyman (concert key of F). That chord is called Fsus2 or Fadd9.
Also, I play this:

and [Am]all the [Em]times I had the [F]chance to
but I don't recall if that's how it's played on the record. Well done, either way.
