Guitar 2

VERSE:

(palm mute)

Em(022xxx)           G5(355xxx)
Warm yourself by the fire, son,

        D5(x577xx)        A5(577xxx)
And the morning will come soon.

Em                         G5
I’ll tell you stories of a better time,

     D5                  Em
In a place that we once knew.


(release palm mute)

Em(022000)                    G(3x003x)
Before we packed our bags and left all this 

  D(xx0230)      Asus2(x02200)
behind us in the dust,

Em(022000)                   G(3x003x)
We had a place that we could call home,

      D(xx0230)         Em(022000)
And a life no one could touch.



CHORUS

Guitar 2

              Em(022000)
Don’t hold me up now,

               G(3x003x)
I can stand my own ground,

                  D(xx0230)
I don’t need your help now,

                Csus2(x3x03x)
You wont let me down, down, down!

(Repeat)


VERSE
(same as above)
(palm mute)

Em                       G5
We are the angry and the desperate,

    D5              A5
The hungry, and the cold,

Em                       G5
We are the ones who kept quiet,

           D5                Em
And always did what we were told.


(release palm mute)

Em                                G
But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm,

       D                Asus2
In the safety of your home.

Em                         G
We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up

D                 Em
Everything you’ve known.


REPEAT cHORUS


BRIDGE:
(both guitars)

Am(x02210)   G(3x003x)                   Am
So open your eyes child, let’s be on our way.

                   G                     Am
Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way.

              G                              C/F(x33010)
Keep quiet no longer, we’ll sing through the day,

                        Em(022000)                  Csus2(x3x03x)  G  D
Of the lives that we’ve lost, and the lives we’ve reclaimed.

Go!

Very nice! I really liked it. It sounded great on my flat top. 5/5 Way to go!

On the "Guitar 1 Intro" use your thumb to mute the E, A and D strings in order to do the xxx while playing the notes on the tab, also the strumming there is "1 2 AND 3 4 AND 5 6 AND" other than that, perfect ;)

If you didn't understand what I just said just look at Tim's hand while playing the intro/verse part

the Em at the end of the verse right before the mute release should be Asus2 instead. even just plain A works.
