You've been the story of my life on the crash side
E             G        D      C
you were the razor and balloon
E             G                 E            G
So when I opened up my eyes on the hillside
E             G        D      C         D
I see the light as it shines... from... the moon

Am               G        D 
breaking off the branches
fighting off the sadness
taking on the madness 
E       G
for you

E             G                 E            G  
theres an angle on your face that I can't shake
E             G        D      C
cause im a figure and a fool for you
E             G                 E            G 
theres a moment that we made now we can't change it
E             G        D      C         D
see the light as it breaks... through... the room

Am               G        D 
tracing all the patterns
fusing all the atoms
lighting up the lanterns
letting go of all the lanterns

...
Dm   F   C   G

Gm   B♭   F   C 
Gm   B♭   F   C 


Am               G        D 
tracing all the patterns
fusing all the atoms
lighting up the lanterns
letting go of all the lanterns
im letting go of all the lanterns 
E      G
for you

capo 4th fret

C                                   F
From way up here the world is just a blur
you're my only distraction
amazed the fear of faces in the church
Am              E               F
just hearts called into action

Am7                     F       C       G
Dancing on the tree tops tonight
Am7                    F                       C            G    F
Hiding from the people and the lights, here we are here we are

C                  F
We sleep and dream never fall apart
just stone cold on the outside
we make mistakes on the surface we've got scars
Am                E                    F
but were all good on the inside

Am7                               F        C   G
cause we're dancing on the tree tops tonight
Hiding from the people and the lights, here we are
close your eyes and dont look down the world is just a memory now
dancing on the tree tops tonight, here we are here we are

F        G       Am7

                                F   G    Am7
cause im never gonna let you go
                                F   G    Am7
cause here we are
                                F   G   C
im never gonna let you go

Am7                    F                   C       G
dancing on the tree tops tonight
hiding from the people and the lights, here we are
close your eyes and dont look down the world is just a memory now
dancing on the tree tops tonight here we are here we are

F        G       Am7

cause im never gonna let you go
im never gonna let you go

Favorite Song Tablature
http://hdaee.org/tab/favorite-song/

I like to strum different strings of these chords to get a sound similar to Howie picking the notes out but that’s just me.

C (add9) - x32033
D/F# - 2x0232 (use your thumb on the low E string)
Em7 - 022033
G - 320033

G         C G            C G
Waiting for a simple code
G                   D/F#      G    C G
I write it down for all to see
your trust is like a little light
I carry around but never use

Em7     C             G          D/F#
I'll be getting on my way tonight
Em7     C             G
I will play my favorite song
I will listen to the wind outside
I will hear my favorite chord
my favorite chord

Waking up in a different place
warm sun against my face
I recognize the world outside
strangest tenor in my voice

I am staying where I am tonight
I will wear my only clothes
I am staring out to sea tonight
I will play my favorite song
to it all...
to it all...

Waiting for a simple code
write it down for all to see
waving lights are in your eyes
and I will play my favorite song

Please let me know if any of the chords or lyrics look wrong. He is really hard to understand in some places.

C         Em                  Am          F
come on I'm reeling here on a rock
counting the places where hearts go
maybe our ancestors try to mock us
no im just playing a life that'll change

just can't fight the desire to love
just can't lie to a child thats within

Dm       E                    Am       G
lovers lips are no kind of friend
everyone dreams that the pragmatic come

C         Em                  Am          F
hit in the stomach a medicine ball
wipe off the dirt and pull back your hair

Dm       E                              Am       G
head in the clouds meet the state that I'm in
need a shelter never and end...    yeah

C         Em                  Am          F
...

Dm            E                     Am       G
seeing the world for the way that I am
need a center always an end

C         Em                  Am          F
I'm only feeling my way through the dark
counting the places I'll never go
so lucky with you that I want to try
so lucky with you that I want to try

Ceasefire

Am                    F              C                           G
Like I told you before, they're just thoughts running through my head
Now the tables have turned, it's our memories instead

Dm           C             F          Am
Maybe you're gone forever, some other time
Dm           C             F
You're somewhere across the great divide

Am                     F
Carried all the way to heaven
C                G 
I know I've been wrong before
Am                     F
Carried all the way to heaven 
C                          G           Dm        G   
Maybe there's a way to the heart of my desire... for a ceasefire

Am              F            C                           G    
All I wanted to say were the thoughts running through my head
Now the lesson is learned everything remains unsaid

Dm              C               F             Am
Now that you're gone, yesterdays can leave me alone
Dm              C               F
Just a feeling of losing all control

Am                            F
You're carried all the way to heaven 
C                  G
You know I've been wrong before
Am                     F
Carried all the way to heaven
C                          G           Dm        G
Maybe there's a way to the heart of my desire... for a ceasefire

Dm        F         C         G
Maybe I'm ordinary, maybe I'm not
Dm          F             C             E     F
Somehow you have to carry on... in your heart

Am  F  C  G
Oh.. come on.. 
no.. no..  come on..

You're carried all the way to heaven 
Maybe there's a way, I've been wrong before
Carried all the way to heaven 
Maybe there's a way, I've been waiting for you 
Carried all the way carried all the way .. 
You're then carried all the way carried all the way .. to a ceasefire

Feeling down n all around
Am                  G        Dm
I see your back in every town
F      G           F
You'll be the one to hold me down
G              F
Tell me, is it too late now?

G                            C
Cuz it feels just like we're weightless

It feels just like we're weightless
Weightless when we're together
Isn't it time to face it, what we already know?
Seems just like we fake it
Pretend it isn't happening
Pretend that it'll go away

It feels just like we're weightless
Weightless when we're together
Isn't it time to face it, what we already know?
Feels just like we're turning
Turning ourselves in circles
Pretend that we can find a way
Oh but what do I know?

But what do I know?
Oh.. but what do I know?

Notes: Sometimes when playing the barre chords, he leaves the B and E open. Also, he is 
to hammer on the E (2nd fret) on the D string when playing E chords.

Wonderwall

in Live Covers, Tablature, by jaman
wonderwall - oasis cover
as performed by howie day
tab by Mike Ingram - nakedguy69@hotmail.com
------------------------------------

notes:

*this is how howie is playing it in the vids i have. same chords as oasis, though they may use different structures 
at some point.

*the D chord in parenthesis is one that i've seen howie do, but he doesn't always do it, sometimes he lets the Em 
ring until going to the A

* no, i didn't want to bother confusing people with the real chord names, nor type them all out several times. depending 
on how you finger things, your pinky or your pinky and ring finger, will stay in the same position, all song.

Capo 2nd fret

all chords are played like this

Em - 0-2-2-0-3-3
G  - 3-2-0-0-3-3
D  - x-(0)-0-2-3-3
A  - x-0-2-0-3-3
C  - x-3-2-0-3-3
D/F# - 2-(0)-0-0-3-3

Intro: Em - G - D - A

Em.........G
Today is gonna be the day that they're 
D......................A

By now you should've somehow 
D........................A
realized what you got to do
Em...................G
I don't believe that anybody 
D...............A
feels the way I do

About you now 

Backbeat the word is on the street that the 
fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before but you 
never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody 
feels the way I do
About you now 

....C
And all the roads we 
D.................Em
have to walk are winding
....C
And all the lights that 
D...................Em
lead us there are blinding
C...............D
There are many things that I 
......G.......D/F#...Em
Would like to say to you, 
......(D)........A
but I don't know how

......C....Em....G
Cause maybe 
.......Em....................C........Em...G
you're gonna be the one that saves me
.......Em....C....Em...G
And after all 
..........Em.....C....Em...G.....(into Disco intro) or the A 
You're my wonderwall 

Today is gonna be the day but they'll 
never throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow 
realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody 
feels the way I do 
About you now 

And all the roads that 
lead you there are winding
And all the lights that 
light the way are blinding
There are many things that I 
Would like to say to you, 
but I don't know how

Cause maybe 
you're gonna be the one that saves me? 
And after all 
You're my wonderwall
