Bowling For Soup - Goodbye Friend tab

Song: Goodbye Friend
Artist: Bowling For Soup
Album: My Wena EP
Year: 2009


This is a great song... it's one of the serious BFS songs...
By which I mean seriously good... which of course is expected...
But yeah here's my take on the song... you know since there
wasn't another tab of it on here... so yeah... enjoy...
(By the by I'm going to put the chords with lyrics after the tab)


Verse:  (To save space I only put half of the times each chord is played
         so play each one twice in the verse or just listen to the song
         for the rhythm...)
