Guns N Roses - There Was A Time chords version 2

Guns N' Roses - There Was a Time
Album: Chinese Democracy (2008)
Transcribed by Jon Malmin (

There doesn't seem to be any transcriptions of this song in standard E tuning. 
I find that for an acoustic version, E tuning is far better and makes it easier too,
since the song is in B minor and that's an easy key to play in.

Intro: Bm  F#m  E  Bm  Bm6

Bm Broken glass and cigarettes
AWritin' on the wall
EIt was a bargain for the summer
BAnd I thought I had it all
BmI was the one who gave you everything
AThe one who took the fall
EYou were the one who would do anything
BThe one who can't recall
BmWhere she was while she was sleepin'
AIn another women's bed
EOr the doctor's or the lawyer's
BOr the stranger that she met
BmIf there's nothing I can gain from this
AOr anything at all
EIt'd be the knowledge that you gave me
EWhen I thought I'd heard it all
E Fmaj7#11It was a long time for you
G6 E Fmaj7#11It was a long time for me
G6 E Fmaj7#11 It'd be a long time for anyone but
E Fmaj7#11 G6Looks like it's meant to be
[Same chords as last verse] Social class and registers Cocaine in the hall All the way from California On the way to your next call To those non-negotiations To simulate a cause For the betterment of evils And your ways around the laws That keep you up and sitting pretty On a pedestal or bed And now you're sleeping like an angel Near the man who you give head If there's somethin' I can make of this Or anything at all It'd be the devil hates a loser And you thought you had it all [Chorus] It was the wrong time for you (It was a long time) It was the wrong time for me (It was a long time) It was the wrong time for anyone but (It was a long time) Looks like I'm 'bout to see for myself
D C#mIf I could go back in time
E7To the place in my soul
There all alone
G F#Lonely teardrops, ooh
BmAre callin' you
A GBut I don't want to know it now
F#mCause knowin' you
E E7It won't change a damn thing
Bm Bm6But there was a time
Solo backing: Bm A E Bm (x2) Bm F#m E E7 Bm A E E7
BmYeah there was a time
ADidn't wanna know it all...
EDidn't wanna know it all...
(E7)And I don't wanna know it now (Repeat once more)
[Gtr. melody backing] Bm A E E7
Bm A E I would do anything for you
There was a time
Bm A EI would do anything for you
Bm A E I would do anything for you
There was a time (Just keep playing Bm, A, E, (E7) throughout the rest of the song, with the long solo and the crazy coda) Well, that's it for this song! Cheers y'all! Chords used:
