Song: "Swing Life Away"
Artist: Rise Against
Album: "Siren Song Of The Counter Culture"
By: Project-96

    Hey, this is a great song, and I am pretty sure that this is correct.  Now notice
that I have given the strum for this one and it too is correct, some of the other tabs
aren't. Also I would suggest listening to the song when doing this, just so that you
can get the timing, strum, and what not.

Tuning: half-step down

Chords: G5: E|3  Csus: E|3  Em7: E|3  D5: E|3  A5: E|3
            B|3        B|3       B|3      B|3      B|3
 x= dont    G|0        G|0       G|0      G|2      G|0
    play    D|0        D|2       D|2      D|0      D|2
   string   A|2        A|3       A|2      A|x      A|0
            E|3        E|x       E|0      E|x      E|x

  Strumming: down, rest, down, up, down, up = /

  > = a single downstroke on the chord

(Intro.)

e|--------------------|
B|-0------------------|
G|----0-----2---0-----| A5 / / (x3) (third time: end with D5 / / >)
D|-------0---------4--|
A|--------------------|
E|-0--------3---------|

(Verse 1)
             Em7 /       D5 /      Csus /
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
   /             Em7 /      G5 /  Csus /  /
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
 Em7 /         G5 /        Csus /       /    D5 /    /  /
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?
 >            Em7 /     D5 /         Csus /
I'll show you mine; you show me yours first
 /           Em7 /        G5 /         Csus /     /
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's....is worse
   Em7 /             G5 /      Csus /             /     D5 / / /
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own....words

(Chorus)
  Em7 /           Csus /      G5 /       A5 /
We live on front porches and swing life away,
 Em7 /        Csus /         G5 /    A5 /
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
  Em7 /   Csus /         G5 /          A5 /
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Em7 /               Csus /       A5 /         D5 / /
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

(Verse 2)
D5 >              Em7 /             D5 /         Csus /
I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
      /         Em7 /           G5 /  Csus /   /
The winter's so cold, summer's over too....soon
Em7 /           G5 /  Csus /         /           D5 /    / /
Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
 >              Em7 /           D5 /     Csus /
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
     /                Em7 /            G5 /        Csus /
But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
 /             Em7 /            D5 /        Csus /      /      D5 / / / /
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will....go

(Chorus)

Em7 /          Csus /       G5 /       A5 /
We live on front porches and swing life away,
 Em7 /     Csus /            G5 /    A5 /
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
  Em7 /   Csus /         G5 /          A5 /
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Em7 /               Csus /       A5 /         D5 / /
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
 Csus /     /      D5 / /
..until you hold my hand

(Solo)

              G5 /              G5 /              G5 /               G5 /

Swing life away,        Swing life away,

Hey guys! It's Project-96, I just found that I made a mistake on the tab in the solo. On all four parts where it shows:
e|-0--------| e|-0--------|
B|----0--1--| ====> B|----3--1--|
G|----------| IT'S THIS! G|----------|
D|----------| ====> D|----------|
A|----------| A|----------|
E|----------| E|----------|

There it is, it should be perfect now. Well, if you guys have any questions or comments or anything, you can email me at
project_96@hotmail.com Thanks guys!!
