These Days - BON JOVI
---------------------
performed by Richie Sambora in "These days"
tabbed by Albatros (otarie68@katamail.com)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey guys!Check this out: a brand new tab of These days by Bon Jovi.
It' s not perfect, but it sounds very close to the record.
The intro is piano and a guitar together, so my intro is an attempt to 
mix the two instruments together. I also transcribed all the licks.
Anyway you tell me...

Verse 1
-------

   	C	                  D			      Em
I was walking around, just a face in the crowd try to keep myself out of the rain 
      C		         D			          Em
Saw a vagabond king wear a styrofoam crown wondered if I might end up the same 
	    C		       D       Em	                  C
There's a man out on the corner, singing old songs about change
  C                   D                    G
 everybody got their cross to bare, these days. [Lick1]


Verse 2

          C               D              Em
She came looking for some shelter with a suitcase full of dreams 
     C                 D                       Em 
To a motel room on the boulevard I guess she's trying to be James Dean
      C              D           Em             C                     D            Em 
She's seen all the disciples and all the 'wanna be's' no one wants to be themselfs these days [Lick2 ]
C                        D              G
Still there's nothing to hold on to but these days  [Lick3]

These days the stars ain't out of reach  [Lick4]
      C                  D               G
These days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no    [Lick3]
      C              D             G                 C
These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age
      C            D           G
There ain't nobody left but us these days


Verse 3 
-------

      C            D              Em
Jimmy shoes busted both his legs, trying to learn to fly

       C            D               Em
From a second story window, he just jumped and closed his eyes 

    C                 D                Em
His momma said he was crazy - he said "momma I've got to try" 

 C                  D             Em   [Lick2] C              D        G   
Don't you know that all my heroes died And I guess I rather die than fade away [Lick3]

These days the stars ain't out of reach  [Lick4]

These days there ain't a ladder from the streets oh no no no
      C               D             G                C
These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age
     C             D                   Em
Even innocence has caught the midnight train  [Lick5]
      C            D           G
There ain't nobody left but us these days

C                         Am                               C
I know Rome's still burning though the times have changed
C                          Am                             D
This world keeps turning round and round and round and round these days
