I am 14 and live in Kentucky, where we don’t where shoes….

Tuning: Standard

New song by U2 and Green day-very well done in my opinion. Please rate and comment. Enjoy.

Billie Joe:

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun
It’s been the ruin
Of many a poor boy
And God I know I’m one

Bono:

I cried to my daddy on the telephone, “how long now?” 
“Until the clouds unroll and you come home,” the line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent, your descent

Excellent tab. I was going to submit this song but you worked out everything and more. Only minor problems: I think the -5777- for Guitar 2 in the Pre-Chorus sounds better as 799777, and there's some muted notes in the Solo. Gr8 job

This is pretty good, but I think Billie only plays the top 3 notes in the pre-verse, you're missing the chordal parts in the verse, and the chorus riffs, imo, are wrong.

Oh and this isn't by Green Day or U2, it's by the Skids.
