CAPO ON 4TH 	 

John Mellencamp Longest Days Lyrics
  C                          G
Seems like once upon a time ago
C                             G
I was where I was supposed to be
C                                    G
My vision was true and my heart was too
          C                       D
There was no end to what I could dream
C                                     G
I walked like a hero into the setting sun
C                      G
Everyone called out my name
C                       G
Death to me was just a mystery
C                          D
I was too busy raising up Cain

C                  G
But nothing lasts forever
C                              G
Your best efforts don't always pay
C
Sometimes you get sick
     G
And don't get better
C
That's when life is short
D                    G
Even in its longest days

C                      G
So you pretend not to notice
C                    G
That everything has changed
C
The way that you look
         G
And the friends you once had
C                          D
So you keep on acting the same
C                      G
But deep down in your soul
                  C       G
You know you, you got no flame
C                               G
And who knows then which way to go
C              D                   G
Life is short even in its longest days
C
All I got here
D
Is a rear view mirror
C                         D
Reflections of where I've been
C   
So you tell yourself
                             G
I'll be back up on top some day
C    
But you know there's nothing waiting up there 
         G
for you anyway

C              G
Nothing lasts forever
C                                  G
And your best efforts don't always pay
C
Sometimes you get sick
                   G
And you don't get better
 C
That's when life is short
 D                   G
Even in its longest days
C
THATS Life is short
D                   G
Even in its longest days

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE POSTED SOOOO I AM SURE IT LEAVES ALLOT TO BE DESIRED......I'M KNOW PROFESSIONAL BY ANY MEANS. JUST A FRONT PORCH PICKER.........NOW WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE CORD (IF I DIE SUDDEN) LOL.........

I'm gonna go ahead and post the version I came up with. I tabbed it out not realizing it was already up. You have it in the key of B, but I think it's actually in C#, with a capo on the 1st fret and played with a C progression. Maybe you were listening to a different version; some of these chords match up (albeit in a different key) with what I've got.

i like it .....but now i'm stuck on playing it the way i came up with ..but i think you are right. like i said i'm know pro. but i am a big mellencamp fan......have you tried to tab or chord if i die sudden.?

The way I see it, you can play a song however you want; I change chords/tempos/keys all the time. I'm not that good (and I can't sing worth a hoot), so it's kind of fun. I've looked at "If I Die Sudden;" I think it might be in a different tuning, in which case, it's way out of my league. I'll look into it again; I may be hearing it wrong.
