Bon Jovi - These Days tab

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...

There's a man out on the corner, singing old songs about change

 everybody got their cross to bare, these days. [Lick1]

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

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"

These days are fast, nothing lasts in this graceless age
     C             D                   Em
Even innocence has caught the midnight train  [Lick5]
