Never Let Me Down
        (words & music by Martin L. Gore)


Before I transcribe this I have to acknowledge VIKTOR HOLUBEK (email:
holubek@managr.fm.uniba.sk).  I figured out the keyboard configuration from
his chord progressions right here at the same site.  All I am just doing is
adding on to his input.

The intro is:

  G riff

E -3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||
B --------------------------||
G --------------------------||
D --------------------------||
A --------------------------||
E --------------------------||


The Riff 1 chords and lines are:

  Dm            C             F             D#

E ---------1---|---------1---|-------------|----------------|
B --3--1-3---3-|--3--1-3-----|---------1---|----------------|
G -------------|-----------2-|--2--0-2---2-|--2--2--0-2-0---|
D -------------|-------------|-------------|--------------3-|
A -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|
E -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|


The Riff 2 chords (featured at the end of the chorus and mostly at the end of
the verse when the song goes into the Cm, Bb, Gm, F progression):

  Dm              C             G riff

E ---------------|--8--6-8-----|-3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||
B --3--1-3--3-1--|----------8--|--------------------------||
G ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||
D ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||
A ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||
E ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||


For the chorus (the Cm part), the keyboard plays:

  Cm                Bb                Gm                F

E -----8-----8-----|-----6-----6-----|-----------------|-----------3---3-||
B ---8---8-----8---|---6---6-----6---|-----8-----8-----|-----6---6---6---||
G -5-------5-----5-|-3-------3-----3-|---7---7-----7---|---5---5---------||
D -----------------|-----------------|-5-------5-----5-|-3---------------||
A -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
E -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||


Those are basically all the keyboard lines.  The lyrics are:

Dm           C                       G riff
I~m taking a ride with my best friend
Dm        C                       G riff
I hope he never lets me down again
Dm                  C
He knows where he~s taking me
Gm                Bb
Taking me where I want to be
Dm           C                       G riff
I~m taking a ride with my best friend


Riff 2:  Dm   C    G riff

Cm           Bb
We~re flying high
                   Gm            F
We~re watching the world pass us by
Cm                 Bb
Never want to come down
                     Gm                    F
Never want to put my feet back down on the ground


Riff 1:  Dm   C    F    D#

Dm           C                       G riff
I~m taking a ride with my best friend
Dm        C                       G riff
I hope he never lets me down again
Dm                 C
Promises me I~m as safe as houses
   Gm                       Bb
As long as I remember who~s wearing the trousers
Dm        C                       G riff
I hope he never lets me down again


Riff 2:  Dm   C    G riff

Cm           Bb
We~re flying high
                   Gm            F
We~re watching the world pass us by
Cm                 Bb
Never want to come down
                     Gm                    F
Never want to put my feet back down on the ground


Dm   C    A    Gm
Dm   C    A    Gm

Dm           C
Never let me down
A            Gm
Never let me down
Dm           C
Never let me down
A            Gm
Never let me down
Dm                    C
See the stars they~re shining bright
A               Gm
Everything is alright tonight...


For playing guitar, I highly suggest you to play the ending chords in this
manner, as it does add gloom to the song:

   Dm   C    A    Gm

E -5--|-x--|-5--|-6--|
B -6--|-5--|-5--|-8--|
G -7--|-5--|-6--|-7--|
D -7--|-5--|-7--|-5--|
A -5--|-3--|-7--|----|
E ----|----|-5--|----|


And that is it.
