CAPO 2

Chords used:
[D]: 2-3-2-0-x-x
[A]: 0-2-2-2-0-x
[G]: 3-3-0-0-2-3


INTRO
[D] [A] [G]
[D] [A] [D]


Going for [D] broke in a film noir [A] smile
No is [G] hard to your easy style
You [D] don’t let the cliques or in[A]justice get you [D] down

There’s more to [D] find than what you pick [A] up
Sometimes the [G] farthest isn’t quite enough
[D] Shadows are good com[A]panions for the light that you [D] save

CHORUS
The world’s [G] deserted and down
Like there’s no love [D] around
The [G] river of life cuts [D] across, hearts no longer [A] entwine
Words shine [G] on like precious stone
Judgment day and the truth be [D] known
The [A] miles and years make it [G] better through gilded [D] tears


GUITAR BREAK 1 – same as intro


Race [D] around to the rattling [A] drone
Diamonds in the [G] distance make the battle sound
Equi[Dlibrium found on the [A] outskirts of any [D] town

CHORUS
The world’s [G] deserted and down
Like there’s no love [D] around
The [G] river of life cuts [D] across, hearts no longer [A] entwine
Words shine [G] on like precious stone
Judgment day and the truth be [D] known
The [A] miles and years make it [G] better through gilded [D] tears


GUITAR BREAK 2 – [G] [D] [A] [G] [D]


Words shine [G] on like precious stone
Judgment day and the truth be [D] known
The [A] miles and years make it [G] better through gilded [D] tears
The [A] miles and years make it [G] better through gilded [D] tears

[continue on D to close]

Thanks for the comment/correction. You are indeed correct about D-A-D on the last lines of the verses. I edited my original post to reflect that correction.

For the time being, I've left the A-G-D (rather than A-A7-D) on the last line of the chorus, simply because it sounds better to my ears. I don't doubt that A7 might well be the correct chord here, but to my ears it's neither here nor there really.

Thanks again!
Tim
