               time are harder	       much harder than 


  D |-------------0--------------------------0---------------|  The 5-4-0 is a slide from 5 to 4,
  A |-------------0--------------------------0---------------|  then a pull off from 4 to 0.
  F |----------------0--------------------------0------------|  The 5-7-5-5-4-0 is a quick slide
  D |-5--4--0-----------5--7--5--5--4--0---------------------|  from 5-7-5, then a slide from 5
  A |--------------------------------------------------------|  to 4 with a pull off to 0.  This 
  D |----------0--------------------------0------------------|  repeats 2 to 4 times depending.

      before


  Note 1: there are many variations to the finger picking to give the song life
        throughout the tune.  add soul, pain and heartache.

  Note 2: i'm sure there are some mistakes in my tabs, but you'll get the jist.
