Am' | F | C | C x2

Verse 1:
Am'       F           C     (C)
My god is better than yours.
Am'                 F            C            G          F
And the walls of my house are so thick I hear nothing at all.
C              G          Am     F      C           G'
I followed you out in the storm, but it carried you off.
F     C            G          Am     F  (F)       G      (G)
And I burned every picture of yours, was that not enough?

Am'       F           C     (C)
My gun is bigger than yours,
Am'              F          C            G           F
So let's arm the masses and see what the bastards do then.
C                 G      Am     F         C           G'
Walking tall once set us apart, now we're down on all fours.
F      C      G           Am    F   (F)   G     (G)
Do you cry my name in the dark, like I do yours?

Chorus 1:
Dm                       Am            C                    G
These storms are getting stronger now, trusses all bend and sway.
Dm                  Am                    C     G
Lightning hits, the power goes out in the fray.
F        (Cmaj9/G) Am           C         G
As the waves crash high and the shoreline disappears,
F            (F)    (F)             G*
I will scream to the sky: "Hey, people live here!"

Am' | F | C | C x2

Verse 2:
Am*           F*         C*     (C)
My dreams are not unlike yours,
Am*               F*         C*           G*          F
They long for the safety and break like a glass chandelier.
C                        G           Am    F             C           G'
But there's laughter and oh there is love, just past the edge of our fears.
F            C          G             Am     F             (F)    G    (G)
And there is chaos when push comes to shove, but it's music to my ears.

Chorus 2:
Dm            Am                C                  G
May you be in heaven before the devil knows you're dead.
Dm                  Am            C     G
May these winds be always at your back.
F                (Cmaj9/G) Am             C           G
'Cause when we're all just ghosts and the madness overtakes us,
F           (F)     (F)             G*
We will look at the ashes and say: "People lived here."

Am | C | F | F x2

Am                 C      F   (F)
From the penthouse to the holy martyr,
Am     C       F   (F)
Sea to shining sea,
Am               C       F    (F)
From the coffins full of kindergartners,
Am           C        F    (F)
Is this what you call free?
Am                 C          F       (F)
From the hate that drips from all your crosses,
Am       C        F     (F)
Are your hands so clean?
Am          C           F        (F)
And the wildfire, it is spreading far,
Am          C       G   (G)
From sea to shining sea.

F*       (Cmaj9/G*) Am*            C*          G*
When we're all just ghosts and the madness overtakes us,
F^                        G^
I will scream to the sky, yeah I'll scream to the sky,
F^                                 G*                   Am
Yeah I'll scream to the sky: "Hey, people live here."

GREAT TAB! I love the song, and this is perfect!

I prefer to play it with a Capo on the 4th fret, transposed 5 steps down, but i guess everyone does it on his own way :D

Thank you very much for this tab!
