Everlong – Foo Fighters (Chords, Tabs + Lyrics)

There are no chord versions of this song anywhere. Not easy to explain, so I hope I made things 
clear enough. I know this sounds right and I think the lyrics and timing are useful towards
explaining this classic song. 

Tuning: Drop D (DADGBe = low E string down 2 steps)

Verse Chords:
F#5/D = 0-9-11-(11)-x-x
F#5/B = 9-9-11-(11)-x-x (barre 9th fret w/ index finger from above chord)
D5/G  = 5-5-7-7-x-x-x   (keep fingering from above chord and slide down)

Chorus Chords:
B5   = 9-9-9-x-x-x
G5   = 5-5-5-x-x-x
D5/G = 5-5-7-7-x-x      (just add 7's to previously barred G5)
A5   = 7-7-7-x-x-x

Pre-chorus Chords: 
C#/D = 0-4-(x-6)-x-x   
D/D  = 0-5-(x-7)-x-x     
E/D  = 0-7-(x-9)-x-x  
F#/D = 0-9-(x-11)-x-x    
G/D  = 0-10-(x-12)-x-x   
A5   = 7-7-7-x-x-x

F#5/D        F#5/D
Breathe out...
   F#5/B               F#5/B
So I could breathe you in.
D5/G    F#5/D 
   Hold you in. 
F#5/D

F#5/D       F#5/D
And now...
  F#5/B              F#5/B

5 Stars, don't know why it isn't rated higher, seems to be easier to understand than any of the fully tabbed out versions.
