Boxing Day Tab
Tuning: Standard

Alright this is my second tab ever.  This is based of the radio version, so the 
quality wasn't perfect.  However, this tab sounds pretty close.  This is the blink I love.

Im splitting them the riffs into parts, so you play them to lyrics below.  Most of 
the song consists of 
chords so I'm just going to write them out.  The strumming isn't that difficult to pick up.
NC means No Chord. Intro was hard to tab, but it is correct.

Intro riff:
e|------------------------------------|
B|---3---------3---1---------1p0------|    Play 3 times on 4
G|-------0---0---------0---0-------0--|    time end on beat 3
D|------------------------------------|    then 4 beats of rest
A|---------2-------0-----0-------0----|
E|------------------------------------|
     1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a

Verse riff:

Intro riff

Verse riff:
Let's get started, the faint and broken-hearted, 
Hold it up, I've got something I cannot hide.
Worst painkiller, that all-in filler,
The apart and departed look in my eyes.

Pre-Chorus Chords:
 G               Dadd11                Em7
Sad, how far you ran, I'll search this land,
                Cadd9
Up through the clouds then back here.
G          Dadd11         Em7                  NC
We could reignite like fireflies, like an atom bomb,
NC
At all hours.

Chorus Chords:
                   G           Cadd9
I'm empty like the day after christmas,
                  Em7           Cadd9
Swept beneath the wave of your goodbye.
                   G           Cadd9
You left me on the day after christmas,
                        Em7            Cadd9
There's nothing left to say, and so goodnight.

Verse 2:
I will follow the trail to tomorrow,
With my loneliness with sorrow all through the night.
Sons and daughters, mothers and their fathers.
Just the bridges and the waters their clues left behind.

Pre-Chorus Chords:
Sad, how far you ran, I'll search this land,
Up through the clouds then back here.
We could reignite like fireflies, like an atom bomb,
At all hours.

Chorus Chords:
I'm empty like the day after christmas,
Swept beneath the wave of your goodbye.
You left me on the day after christmas,
There's nothing left to say, and so goodnight.

The Bridge:
Same as verse riff

Chorus Chords:
I'm empty like the day after christmas,
Swept beneath the wave of your goodbye.
You left me on the day after christmas,
There's nothing left to say, and so goodnight.

Let G ring
Goodnight.

About the artist behind Boxing Day Tab:

Blink-182 was an American trio that played pop punk[1][2][3] music. The band originally formed in 1992 in Poway, California[4] (a northern suburb of San Diego) by Tom DeLonge (vocals and guitar) and Mark Hoppus (vocals and bass), who quickly recruited Scott Raynor (drums)[5]. Originally, the band's official name was "Blink", but "182" was appended early in their career following an objection from an Irish band with the same name. In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, Drummer Travis Barker, who was touring with The Aquabats on the same tour with Blink-182, later played the set because Scott Raynor had to leave for the day. After the set, Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge sat down and talked about Travis Barker joining the band. The next day he became a member of the band and replaced Raynor permanently. DeLonge left the group in early 2005, with the band portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus". DeLonge went on to play alternative rock in a band called Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued in a similar genre with their band +44.

Blink-182 were known for their catchy, simple melodies, teen angst and lyrical toilet humor. They have sold almost 22 million records worldwide and have gained a strong cult following since their establishment during the mid-90's and especially during the start of their "indefinite hiatus". Songwriters Hoppus and DeLonge cite punk rock bands such as NOFX, The Cure, Dinosaur Jr., The Descendents and Screeching Weasel[6] as their early influences, although the band's songwriting and production were driven by a pop sensibility. The band was primarily known for popular hits such as "All the Small Things", "Adam's Song", "What's My Age Again", "First Date", "The Rock Show", "Dammit", "Feeling This", "I Miss You" and "Stay Together for the Kids".
