Saosin - Seven Years Acoustic tab version 1

Seven Years [Acoustic] - Saosin

(Lyrics at bottom)

Version three of this tab (the one rated five stars) sounds pretty spot on, but if you 
listen to the song, the higher notes are played on a higher string, not on the second 
bass string. This version is correct, play along while listening to the song and you'll 
see :)

This is my first tab, so not too harsh if the format seems whack!


Tuning is Drop D

(Use your pointer finger to hold down the first fret on B string and your pinky to hold 
down the third fret on the higher D string)

Well, that's my take, and it sounds good to me, almost perfect except maybe for the fast picking part. Enjoy! Comments/criticism welcome! Lyrics: Taking on seven years The holy ghost had left alone Test my arms, kick like crazy And I've been trying way too long Only push the way off to fight you And I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure Getting off my chest The story ends I would find a way without you I would find a way without you That mistake was gold I know that without you It's something that I could never do That was right Staple the eyes and Seven dates for me to sell machines And tear on Seven years you assured me That I'd be fine if I complied Only push the way off to fight you And I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure Getting off my chest The story ends Without you I would find a way without you That mistake was gold I know that without you It's something that I could never ever ever ever... That was right Staple the eyes and Seven dates for me to sell machines And tear on Don't treat me I'm to blame Dont treat me like I ever accused you Don't treat me I'm to blame Dont treat me like I ever accused you Don't treat me I'm to blame Dont treat me like I ever accused you Don't treat me I'm to blame Dont treat me like I ever accused you
