William Fitzsimmons – When You Were Young tab ver. 2

When You Were Young - William Fitzsimmons

I believe this is how it's played...
Tuning from Low to High string goes C#, G#, C#, F#, C#, C#.

Don't worry, it's not that hard to tune... All you do is make the C# by
putting your finger on the 2nd fret of the B string (B-2--)and now you have
your C#: tune your Low E, D, B, and E to it! After that, simply drop your A
and G string (my favourite kind of string ;-) ) by 1/2 (Put your Capo on the 1st fret 
standard tune your A
and G string)

It's Picking/Strumming... Either try and pick it after a beer or strum it
when you're sober and it'll sound about right... Hehehe

From what I hear, the song basically goes like this:

C#|----0------0------0------0-----|C#|----0------0------0------0-----|F#|---0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--|C#|--0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0---| X Repeat until song is overG#|-5------10-----9------7--------|C#|-5------9------9------7--------|
He does add a bit of hammer-on stuff like:
C#|------0----|C#|------0----|F#|-----0-0-0-|C#|----0---0--|G#|-5-5-------|C#|-4H5-------|
and
C#|--------0----|C#|--------0----|F#|-------0-0-0-|C#|------0---0--|G#|-0H4H5-------|C#|-----5-------|
and
C#|--------0----|C#|--------0----|F#|-------0-0-0-|C#|------0---0--|G#|-5-----------|C#|-5H4H5-------|
Which sounds pretty neat. As well as add a little lick of:
C#|----------0----|C#|----------0----|F#|---------0-0-0-| in his live versionC#|--------0---0--|G#|-5/9-7-5-------|C#|-------5-------|
You can play around with this song and add a finger on and off the G string at the 7th fret and play something like this:
C#|-----0----|C#|-----0----|F#|----7-7-7-|C#|---0---0--|G#|--5-------|C#|--5-------|
Before I forget, it's all about the singer, not the song, so here are the lyrics: 15 months and they would Drag you from your throne But you ain't got no place to go You're the bad one from the day you were born You can run I don't think that you can hide (Repeat Chord Pattern 4x) Have you found the knife and cigarettes inside of your locker with your books? Smoking weed with Joe and Rock inside his house You can run I don't think that you can hide Mom wants you to come back home She keeps crying when I call her on the phone Won't you give this thing a chance? You were not what you were When you were young You were not what you were When you were young (Repeat Chord Pattern 4x) I was f***ed up when you needed me the most Trying to starve myself to death I still feel like I did something always wrong You can run I don't think that you can hide Mom wants you to come back home She keeps crying when I call her on the phone Won't you give this thing a chance? Cause you were not what you were When you were young You were not what you were When you were young (Play Chord Pattern 2x) You were not what you were When you were young You were not what you were When you were young You were not what you were When you were young You were not what you were When you were young You were not // Mom wants you to come back home She keeps crying when I call her on the phone Won't you give this thing a chance? You were not what you were When you were young (Repeat Chord Pattern 3x) ________________________________ Feel free to correct any mistakes you find! Thank you for your time! A-Team
