When Were Old Men Tab
Yellowcard - When We're Old Men

I'm not too sure if this is a regional extra on some Lights and Sounds 

CDS but you can
get it on iTunes as I did. I'm pretty sure that all of the tab with the 

exception of Part 4 is 100%. The chords played sound different each time 

I listen so I just went for a basic variation which you can change if you 

find something you think sounds better. Entirely up to the guitarist!
I'll put the sections and then type the order in which they go. 

Enjoy! =)

Part 3 - Bridge

Violins play in the background here but I didn't bother to tab them for 

guitar, again entirely optional if you want a second guitarist to play 

the notes the violin does. 

e---------4---------------2--------------------------------------|

a----2-2-----2-------2-2-----2-----------------------------------|
e----------------------------------------------------------------|

Part 4 - Outro

It's basically alternate picking of the E5, D5, C#5, B5 and A5 chords 

with the e and b strings also strummed from what I can tell (Don't trust 

me for the names of the chords by the way)
The way I've played the D5 here (x59700) is just the way I like to play 

that chord, it can just as easily be replaced by (x57700)
You'll get the hang of it the more you play it, I'm not 100% sure about 

this part yet so any comments would be appreciated.
