Intro {plucked}
G C D     X2

Verse {plucked}
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
G C D   - {plucked}
G C D   - {strummed}

Verse 2 {strummed}
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.

  1. Ash the stup

    Where is the E

  2. If you pluck the G string it’s the same as fretting the 3 fret of the E string which helped me in the riff.

  3. Green Day started in 1986 actually, not 1987. Learn your facts.

  4. this is really nice, it helped me learn plucking

  5. ukulele_screamo_enthusiast

    Beautiful Chords, I learned it in like 5 minutes! Also transpose +5 may look easier but is just as good as no transpose :)

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
