Intro -x2-: G  C  D

Verse:
G                       C                D
Another turning point a fork stuck in the road,
G                                C                   D  
Time grabs you by the wrist, and directs you where to go
Em          D            C                 G
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
Em         D              C                 G
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time
Em                    G           Em           G             
Its something unpredictable but in the end it's right
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life.

Interlude -x2-: G  C  D

Verse:
G                        C                    D
Take the photographs and still frames in your mind
G                         C                    D
Hang it on a shelf and in good health and good time
Em         D                 C          G
Tattoos the memories and this test go on trial
Em            D            C             G    
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
Em                    G           Em           G             
Its something unpredictable but in the end it's right
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life.

Solo:
    G  C  D -x4-
    Em  D  C  G -x2-


Em                    G           Em           G             
Its something unpredictable but in the end it's right
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life.

Interlude -x2-: G  C  D


Em                    G           Em           G             
Its something unpredictable but in the end it's right
Em                 D            G
I hope you had the time of your life.

Learning ukulele is the only thing keeping me sane right now. Yay for quarantine.

twentyøneguns

I like to add just a g chord at the end to tie it all together :)

Smileyhappyjess95

Nice ! That’s exactly what was missing thank you

lilly

I do the same thing!

hayden

honestly i think the song sounds better if you go G G C D instead of G C D with the island strumming (standard DDUUDU

Kaspar

I couldn’t agree more. I played Good Riddance with a G G C D and the same U U D D UD pattern too!

Amie Alexander

I saw you green day at the NHL all star game😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀! I want to know your song on my piano😇

Elise

Am I the only one who thought it was “dead skin on trial”? I want to sing this for my virtual graduation and I’m not sure…

morgan

if this is a strumming song, what’s the pattern??

ukuey

DDU – UDU

Amie

Hi! Does anyone know that Alberta is slowly opening up again?

Stefanie

strum pattern???

cheesewhiz

I like to use this for picking:

A|———-2———–2-|
E|——3——3———-| ●play 2x
C|–2————-2——-|
G|————————–|

A|———3———-3–|
E|——0—–0———-|
C|–0———–0——–|
G|————————-|

A|———0———-0–|
E|——2—–2———-|
C|–2————2——|
G|————————|
