Chords:

Gmodal   :320033

C9       :032033

Dsus4    :000233

Em7      :022033




Verse: (play each line twice, then go to chorus)

   G                              C9             Dsus4
   |-------3--------------3--------------3------------3------|	/|
   |----------3-------------3--------------3------------3----| / |	
   |-------------0------------0--------------0-----2------2--|	 |
   |---0--------------0--------------2-----------0-----------|   |
   |------------------------------3--------------------------|   |
   |-3--------------3----------------------------------------| __|__

   Then it repeats, so it almost sounds like it goes C9, Dsus4, Gmodal. 
   So, after the end of the Dsus4 bit, go straight to the G bass note.

    Em            Dsus4           C9                G		 __
   |------3------------3-------------3------------3----------|  /  \
   |--------3------------3-------------3------------3--------| |    |
   |----------0-----2------2-------------0------------0------|	   /
   |---2----------0---------------2------------0-------------|	  /
   |----------------------------3----------------------------|   /
   |-0---------------------------------------3---------------|  /____ 

   Okay, tab 1 at the top is played through twice, then
   play tab 2 twice.  That's the verse.  Then, the next bit
   is played once.  That's the chorus.  Not terribly complex,
   but, hey this IS Green Day, after all.

   |--------3------------3------------3-----------3----------| |   | 
   |----------0------------0------------0-----------0--------|   __/ 
   |---2------------0------------2-----------0---------------|     \
   |---------------------------------------------------------| |   |
   |-0------------3------------0-----------3-----------------| \___/
   
    Em             Dsus4      ___

   |---2----------0--------|     \
   |-----------------------| |   |
   |-0---------------------| \___/

   Okay, now, it's important that you go straight back into the
   opening G of the verse, because the Dsus4 sort of leaves you
   hanging there.  Then play the first half of the verse once
   through, then start it all over again.
   
Lyrics

Intro: G C9 Dsus4 G (start singing) (the fingerpicking here is 
same as verse (see above))

Verse 1:

G	C9		Dsus4		  G
Another turning point a fork stuck in the road 
G              C9	    Dsus4	         G   
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
Em          Dsus4		   C9	     G
So make the best of these days and don't ask why
Em	   Dsus4	  C9                G
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

Chorus
Em                  G        Em              G
It's something unpredictable in the end it's right
Em                  Dsus4        G (where verse riff cuts back in)
I hope you have the time of your life.  (Start struming G  C  Dsus4)

Verse 2:
G	    C9              Dsus4               G
So take the photographs and stillframes in your mind
G            C9        Dsus4              G
Hang it on a shelf; it could've been good times (couldn't get this line, fix it if you know it)

Em         Dsus4	C9	  G
Tatoos and memories and asking on trial
Em	      Dsus4        C9            G
For what it's worth it was worth all the while


Chorus

Instrumental(Strum over Violins)

Chorus


End with Tab 1 and then |---------|
                        |---------|
                        |--2------|
                        |----0----|
                        |------0--|  and end on a G
                        |---------|
