bare with me..this isnt really organized that great.. the tab above is basically just the little riffs Mike McCready plays or at least what you can play..they are not exactly correct..but you can always just fiddle around..do what feels right.. For what i've labeled A in the tab.. you just fool around and play that little riff i gave.. no need to just play the same over and over again add little hammer ons and pull offs and different switches.. while the rhythm is basically just the chord A strummed over and over again listen for the timing.. sort of strum slow then fast then slow and let it linger through out the verses.. then when it gets to the transition on part B play D B(?) A C and then that little riff i gave. and thats about it.. until it changes to the "things were different then" part.. which is just G and A back and forth.(you can add little harmonics hammerons pull offs, whatever you like) here is the lyrics with chords.. this song isnt perfect.. words and tab I'm 17 years old and only been playing a year so don't expect much but when i play it..i think it sounds ok. CHORUS B

Gthings were different Athen All is different GNow I tried to Aexplain SomehoGw Gthings were different Athen all is different Gnow i tried to Aexplain somehoGw thats about it.. the tape i got of this is from a boot called "free world" and its not to great a copy.. i cant understand a word eddie says in the second part so i just wrote down what it sounded like and im not sure about the B chord in the chorus.. that would be why there is a question mark in front of it.. the absolute best thing to do is to listen to the song and play it the way you want to.. this is just my version
