10,000 Maniacs
These Are The Days
Chords by: William Perkins (wperkin@okstate.edu)

This is a neat song in the key of Eb.  It uses the chords Eb, Ab, A chord diagramBb majorBb and
Cm.  I would suggest using the folling shapes: D, G, A, Bm, respectively
with capo on I.  Or C, F, G, Am, with the capo on III.  Tempo is about 110.
The chord progression goes through the intro, then the first verse section
*twice* (substiting the A chord diagramEb MajorEb in parenthesis the second time through), then

verse 3, and then the outro.  I have the neat guitar riff at the bottom.

Chord Shapes:
  CAPO I orCAPO III
  Eb: xx0232  Eb: x32010
  Ab: 320033  Ab: 133211
  Bb: x02220  Bb: 320033
  Cm: x24432  Cm: x02210

Here's the guitar riff, syncopated 16ths.  Play this four times at bars
33-40 (that's twice at the end of verse 2, and twice at the beginning
of verse 3).  Then, play it twice at bars 85-88 (last four measures of

verse 3), and continue to play it throught the outro.
