Wake me up when September ends
GREEN DAY

Simple chords are written above lyrics, excellent TAB appears below:

G - Bm7
Summer has come and past.
Em7 - G

The innocent can never last.
C - Cm - G

Wake me up when September ends.

Like my fathers come to pass,
Seven years has gone so fast.
Wake me up when September ends.

Em - Bm7

Here comes the rain again,
C - G

Falling from the stars.
Em - Bm7

Drenched in my pain again,
C - D

Becoming who we are.
As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost.
Wake me up when September ends.

Summer has come and past.
The innocent can never last.
Wake me up when September ends.

Ring out the bells again.
Like we did when spring began.
Wake me up when September ends.

Here comes the rain again,
Falling from the stars.
Drenched in my pain again,
Becoming who we are.
As my memory rest,
But never forgets what I lost.
Wake me up when September ends.

Summer has come and past.
The innocent can never last.
Wake me up when September ends.

Like my fathers come to pass.
Twenty years has gone so fast.
Wake me up when September ends.[x3]
