Better Days

( John Rzeznik)

  		
Intro: Bb7M Eb7M Ab7M Bb7M Eb7M Eb/F 

Verse one 
Bb7M        Eb7M        Ab7M      Gm7  Fm7 
Silver gray hair neatly combed in place 
           Eb7M    C7/E         D7   D/E  D/Gb  Gm7 
There were four generations of love  on   her   face 
   Fm7     Eb7M        Dm7            Dbdim      Cm9             Ab7M   Eb/F Ab6 
She   was so wise, no surprise passed her eyes,       she'd seen it all 
Bb7M        Eb7M        Ab7M      Gm7  Fm7 
I was a child, oh about three or four 
    Eb7M        C7/E          D7   D/E  D/G Gm7 
All day I'd ask questions at night I'd  ask  more 
Fm7    Eb7M     Dm7            Dbdim Cm9        Ab7M      Eb/F     Ebdim/F 
But whenever, she never, would ever           turn me away.      No oh.  

tabchorus
Ab/Bb Ab/Bb Eb7M I'd say how can I be sure what is right or wrong Eb7M Gb/Ab Gb/Ab Db7M And why does what I want always take so long Db7M A7M B Db/Eb Eb/F Please tell me where does God live and why won't He talk to me Ab/Bb Ab/Eb Eb7M Eb7M I'd say, grandma what is love will I ever find out? Gb/Ab Gb/Ab Db7M Why are we so poor, what is life about Db7M A7M B Db/Eb Eb/F Db/Eb Eb/F I wanna know the answers before I fall off to sleep. Oooh oh

Verse two Bb7M Eb7M Ab7M Gm7 Gbm7 Fm7 She sort of smiled as she tucked me in, Eb7M C7/E D7 D/E D/Gb Gm7 Then she pulled up that old rocking chair once again. Fm7 Eb7M Dm7 Dbdim7 Cm9 Ab7M Eb/F Ab6 But tonight she was slightly, remarkably, different somehow Bb7M Eb7M Ab7M Gm7 Fm7 Slowly she rocked, looking half asleep Eb7M C7/E D7 D/E D/Gb Gm7 Grandma yawned as she streched then she started to speak Fm7 Eb7M Dm7 Dbdim Cm9 Ab7M Eb/F Ebdim/F What she told me, would mould me, and holds me together inside
tabchorus
Ab/Bb Ab/Bb Eb7M She said all the things you ask you will know someday, Eb7M Gb/Ab Gb/Ab Db7M Db7M A7M But you have got to live in a patient way God put us here by fate B Db/Eb Eb/F And by fate that means better days Ab/Bb Ab/Bb Eb7M She said, child we all moons in the dark of night Eb7M Gb/Ab Gb/Ab Db7M Ain't no morning gonna come 'til the time is right Db7M A7M B Db/Eb Eb/F Can't get to better days lest you make it through the night Db/Eb Eb/F You gotta make it through the night, yes you do.

Bridge Db7M You can't get to no better days, Fm11 F F G Ab Bb C Eb F Ddim Unless you make it through the night. Db7M Oh, you will see those better days Cm7 Fm7 E/Gb Gb/E Db/Eb Eb/F Db/Eb Eb/F Be pa - tient, be pa - tient, oh baby, be patient Verse three Bb7M Eb7M Ab7M Gm7 Gbm7 Fm7 Later that year, at the turn of spring, Eb7M C7/E D7 D/E D/Gb Gm7 Heaven sent angels down and gave grandma her wings. Fm7 Eb7M Dm7 Dbdim Cm9 Ab7M Eb/F Ebdim/F Now she's flying, and sliding, and gliding in better days
tabchorus
Ab/Bb Ab/Bb Eb7M And although I'm all grown up, I still get confused. Eb7M Gb/Ab Gb/Ab Db7M I stumble through the dark, getting bumped and bruised, Db7M A7M B When the night gets in my way, I could still hear my grandma say Db/Eb Eb/F Db/Eb Eb/F I can hear her say. I can hear her say
tab
Coda Db7M You can't get to no better days Fm11 F F G Ab Bb C Eb F Ddim7 Unless you make it through the night baby Db7M Oh, you will see those better days, Fm11 F F G Ab Bb C Eb F Ddim But you gotta be patient child, do you hear me yeah, well, well, well well well Db7M You can't get to no better days Fm11 F F G Ab Bb C Eb F Unless you make it, you got to make it, you got to make it Ddim You got to make it through the night yeah Db7M Oh grandma, oh grandma Fm11 F F G Ab Bb C Eb F Ddim Do you see me now lady oh oh oh Db7M She used to sit me on her knee, she used to comb my hair Fm11 She used to tell me stories (fade out)
