Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)

Words & Music:

Billy Joe Armstrong & Frank Wright


There's a nice acoustic tab of this in the January 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar.


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 this test and don't ask why.

Em         Dsus4          C9                G

It's not a question but a lesson learned in time.



Em                  G            Em              G

It's something unpredictable and in the end it's right.

Em                  Dsus4       G   C  Dsus4  G

I hope you had the time of your life.


So take the photographs and still frames in your mind;

Hang it on a shelf; in good health and good time.

Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial.

For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
