INTRO
B5 A5 A5/G# E5 x3
B5 B5/A B5
VERSE 1 E5 I've got some scattered pictures
G#5
Lying on my bedroom floor. A5 Reminds me of the times we shared. B5 Makes me wish that you were here. E5 G#5 Now it seems I've forgotten my purpose in this life. A5 All the songs have been erased. B5 Guess I've learned from my mistakes well CHORUS C#m E5* Open the past and present. B5* A5* Now and we are there. F#5 A5* E5* Story to tell and I am listening.
C#m E5* Open the past and present. B5* A5* And the future too. F#5 A5 E5 It's all I've got and I'm giving it to you. VERSE 2
E5 Loose ends tied in knots. G#5 Leaving a lump down in my throat. A5 Gagging on a souvenir. B5 Lodged to fill another year. E5 G#5 Drag it on and on until my skin is ripped to shreds. A5 Leaving myself open wide. B5 Living out a sacrifice. CHORUS C#m E5* Open the past and present. B5* A5* Now and we are there. F#5 A5* E5* Story to tell and I am listening.
C#m E5* Open the past and present. B5* A5* And the future too. F#5 A5 E5 It's all I've got and I'm giving it to you.

Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong
Music by Green Day
THIS SONG IS FROM “Nimrod” 1997
How to read these chord schemes

1 - chord name, 2 - chord designation, 3 - chord scheme

Chord name

There is the name of a chord before the symbols. If it's "*" added to a name, it means that this chord is played in different positions during the song.

Chord designation

There are 6 symbols in a designation, read it from left to right. The first symbol defines the thickest string (6th string), the second symbol defines 5th string and so on.

"0" means open string

"x" means this string isnt played

"Number" means number of a fret.

Example:

x02220

6th string isnt played
5th string is open
4th string is played on 2nd fret
3rd string is played on 2nd fret
2nd string is played on 2nd fret
1st string is open

Chord scheme

Imagine that you are looking at the fret while playing guitar - the closest string to your eyes is the 6th, the thickest string. There are 6 horizontal lines defines strings, the upper one is the thinnest string (1st string).
And there are 4 lines defined frets - no exact frets numbers defined.
In some schemes there is a thick line on the left - it defines the nut.

  • "0" means open string
  • "x" means this string isnt played
  • Fat dots mean fingers positions

Example:

G5 355xxx
