Days Go By
Keith Urban


This is such a great song!
Ok, now this is MY INTERPRETATION of the song. It may not be exact, but it
sounds great. Some of this stuff is hard to hear in the song, but I figured
it out as best I could.  There are 2 guitars in this song, so I tabbed them
both out for ya. I also combined a little bass into the Guitar 2 part, so
it sounds fuller.

This is tabbed rhythmically so you know what guitar plays when.

NOW REPEAT THE PREVERSE… but only x2      Cuz days go by…

REPEAT VERSE…Out on the roof just the other night I watched the world flash by.
Headlights, tail lights runnin through a river of neon signs
			But somewhere in the rush I felt, we’re losin ourselves

ALTERED PREVERSE: I tabbed this part up higher on the
			fretboard, because I found it easier to play up there.

fit. I hope you like it!

Hey! I'm still learning how to read tab(I taught myself to play guitar; I've only been playing 4 months), but I'm gonna give it a shot! I've got Keith's "Livin' Right Now" concert DVD, so I can sorta watch him and match this with what he's doing. Well, I'll try it out then tell if it works! Tanks for puttin' this on here!:)
