Hey guys, play the picking pattern throug all the verses and look at the transition 
riffs to the chorus.
In the chorus strum the chords down and sing then alone (listen to the song and get it).
I actually wrote everything important down…
I think I got the picking pattern but at some parts I’m not too sure… But it sounds 
right to me.
Have fun 

These are the picking patterns, below you see the chords, change the picking when the 
chord changes.

INTRO:
Em

VERSE:

Em
I was gripped with a bit of fear
            Em
worried the one thing that I loved
          G
back when I was just a kid
          Am
might now never be enough
         C
that the body I was in
      C
might belong to someone else
        Em
Someone kinder, Someone surer, Someone innocent, young and beautiful
        C
someone purer, that's the one I know

Em
Em

Em                                Em
I was scratching at my skin hopin changes would begin
         G (2nd guitar strums down 1x)
but what laid beneath was blood
        Am(2nd guitar strum 1x)  C         (2nd guitar strum)
well of course what the hell was I thinking of
                              C
                        (2nd guitar)
won't you take me down to the creek wash away our sins of sleep
At sins of do this riff and strum with Em down at sleep (listen to the song to get it right)
Riff 1:
E------------|
B------------|
G------------|
D----------3-|
A------------|
E---0---3----|

Em
I feel so tired as though I might
                             C
not wake at all on the other side.... that's no way to go




2nd Guitar (or if you do an acoustic version I think it would be fine if you stop
picking the chords and play the riff instead)
Riff 2:
E--------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------|
D-----------2----0-------------2---0---------------|
A---------------------------------------2---0---2--|
E—0---3---------------0----3-----------------------|


CHORUS (listen to the song to get the strumming (I think the most of the time it’s down
strumming. Instead of the Chords you can use power chords as well, whatever you like better.)

G (Strum until you start singing, then let the chord fade out and strum again when the 
singing stops)
Oh my dear one
bathe me in your glow

D
cut out my lonely heart
and bury it in the snow

F
nothing really means nothing
is the saddest thing I know

C
so deliver me from sin
and give me rock and roll

Sing Oh Oh here x4 (Strum the whole time)
G
D
Give me RocknRoll
F
C

The same picking like in the beginning. Strum down with the second guitar at the ends of 
the sentences

Em
And in the morning there'll be hope
and in the morning there'll be light
               G
and if I sleep and dream up a system
Am
a solution
C
to fend off perils of the night
Em
come on in, I'll be born again
                         G
born again as someone else
Em
Someone kinder
Someone surer
Someone beautiful

                   C
someone purer

Play Riff 2 two times with those lyrics:
and when I am you'll know
and when I am you'll know

Strum the Chords again
G
Oh might one
the devil knows my name
D
will salvation come
and wash away my pain?
F
for I was once a kid
with a pure and innocent soul
C
so deliver me from sin
and give me rock and roll

Sing Oh Oh here x4
G
D
F
C

Give me rock and roll
Give me rock and roll
a pure and innocent soul
and a pure and innocent soul

Give me rock and roll
Give me rock and roll
and a pure and innocent soul
and a pure and innocent soul

let the last chord fade out

You forgot to mention this is with a CAPO on 6th fret... Chords are spot on, but I think strumming it's a bit off, anyway it's a great tab to start learning the song

It's perfect minus the one detail of saying Capo 6.
