Kid Rock - Times Like These Acoustic tab

ARTIST:      KID ROCK
SONG:        TIMES LIKE THESE
TABBED BY:   JEFF MARTIN
TUNING:      HALF STEP DOWN

Tabbed is an acoustic version that can be found in various forms on the internet.  
It was most recently performed on the 2010 American Music Awards, and in my humble 
opinion was the highlight of the show. The performance can be found in video 
(again) all over the internet.

As we all know, live performances have tons of improv and variation.  The following 
tab can be used as a foundation and is open for interpretation.  Never the less, 
it will get you where you need to be if you want to play it live (or just by 
yourself).  I hope this helps!  Jeff

CHORUS
         C          D        Dsus2 D G     Csus2 G
And it's times like these we can't replace 
     C          D        Dsus2 D G     Csus2 G
It's times like these we must  embrace
    C                D               Em        D      C     C B/C
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees
   Am              D                  G (Intro)
It makes us who we are, in times like these

LYRICS:

The lakes and pines they bleed of beauty and grace 
And the rivers they run wild like an endless race 
The forests soar so high then fall to the sea 
As church bells ring and sing in harmony 

I heard them say they're shuttin' Detroit down 
But I won't leave cuz' this is my hometown 

And it's times like these we can't replace 
It's times like these we must embrace 
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees 
It makes us who we are, in times like these 

The concrete and steel stand strong against the wind 
With the memories of what was and what has been 
The sounds of sweet soul music and blue-collar blues 
There were 17 colors for a Chevy all red white and blue 

I heard them say that you can't save that town 
But I won't leave, I will stand my ground 

And it's times like these we can't replace 
It's times like these we must embrace 
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees 
It makes us who we are, in times like these 

(Solo) 

The ice and snow give way to a new spring bloom 
In the wake that hope and faith they will be home soon 
A new day dawns as the good Lord shines from above 
Cuz in the rubble and rust there remains a whole lotta love 

And I was here watchin' it all go down 
And I'll still be, when it comes back around 

And it's times like these we can't replace 
It's times like these we must embrace 
And even though it's bittersweet and brings us to our knees 
It makes us who we are, in times like these 
It makes us who we are in times like these

YUP!
