Bad As They Seem Tabs

Album:Everything I Long For

every tab i have ever seen on the internet for this song is completely
inaccurate. i am not sure if this is 100%, because it is just "my
interpretation" of it, though, when i saw him in concert, i am pretty
sure i play it the same way.

anyways... lets get on with it.

like all hayden songs, you need to tune your guitar down a full step.
(only the low three are actually played, but sometimes to may hit other
strings, so i would suggest tuning them all)

after that, tune what is now a D, (ei. the low E), to an A.
you can do this in a few ways.

1. the 10th fret on the E string should be the same as your A string,
2. tune the E string so it is the same as the A string being played
   on the second fret.
3. pluck the low E and the B strings at the same time and adjust the E
   until it they are the same. (if you decided to tune all your strings

(remember to do this AFTER you tune down one full step)

or however you want, those are just my suggestions... it has to be tuned
nearly perfect or else it sounds cr*ppy. its a bit tricky... in fact,
even hayden had a bit of trouble when i saw him in concert. (point of
interest... hayden used the second technique when i saw him, perhaps that
means it is best, *shrug*)

Verse 1:

Girl of my dreams
Things are as bad as they seem
She's only sixteen
Thats why she's only a dream

Woman of my dreams
Lives right down my street
Has a daughter who's sixteen
Thats why she's only a dream


What do I do this for
've got to get out some more
Go down to the grocery store
Meet someone i'll adore

Someone who'll make me laugh
Someone to be my better half
Keep me warm under the sack
Share with me my midnight snack

Verse 2:

Child of my dreams
Things are as bad as they seem
Working where I did at fourteen
making less pay it seems


Verse 3:

House of my dreams
Things are as bad as they seem
Parents house i'll stay for free
Till I'm at least 43

So that's it... i hope you enjoy.
