This awesome song is off of The Afters new CD. 
It's an amazing acoustic song and I guarantee 
this tab is 100% correct if you take the time 
to learn it in it's entirety. As always, refer 
to the song for timing and rhythm.

You can play the song in standard tuning if 
you want, but it's going to be a half step higher.

TUNING: Standard Flat (Eb, G#, C#, F#, Bb, Eb)

Since this site does not allow lyrics, refer to
the song to catch the timing, but the song follows
a very perceptible pattern so this shouldn't be hard.

Guides:
s - Slide
p - pull
h - Hammer
P - pluck all notes at once (Not strumming)
S - Strum the notes with your thumb

Chords Used: C  Am Em Gm Dm Fm G  F

And that's all there is to it. A little daunting at first, I know.
But once you get the hang of it, it's easy to play. Have fun guys.
God bless

hey! thanks so much for the tab!! i went to the afters concert recently and wanted to see if i could find any songs..so thanks, its awesome

I LOVE this song, but I think their original version is better. Ya'll should check out "Blisse." It's The Afters' old band. It's all the same members, just with a different name. Half the songs on the Afters' CD is on the old Blisse CD(When the world was beautiful)


Number1RKfanAMT - 2005-10-07

Wow...this is such an awesome song! The only correction I would make to this tab is that in the second strumming part, every other F is an Fm. Other than that, great tab! Thanks a lot!

yeah you did a great job figuring this song out. I learned your version and actually played it for brad about a year ago and he said it was almost exactly right. he doesn't finger pick it anymore instead he strums it all with a pick. and last time i saw him play it, he used his new fender strat...
