Walls By Tom Petty

Put a capo on the 5th fret and use these chords.  (The capo isn=92t reall=
y needed, but it=20
makes the minor chords just a little bit easier.)=20

 F    Dm   A#   C    Gm  =20
E-x  E-x  E-1  E-3  E-x-|
A-3  A-0  A-3  A-5  A-0-|
D-5  D-2  D-3  D-5  D-0-|
G-5  G-2  G-2  G-4  G-2-|
B-5  B-1  B-1  B-3  B-3-|
E-x  E-0  E-1  E-3  E-1-|

(The Numbers are the number of frets up from the capo.)

F                       Dm
Some days are diamonds
                        A#
Some days are rocks
                        C=20
Some doors are open

Some roads are blocked.

Sundowns are golden
Then fade away
And if I never do nothin'
I'll get you back someday.

Chorus-
A#                       F =20
Cause you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
            Gm          Dm
And I can't hold out forever
C               F
Even walls fall down

And all 'round your island
There's a barricade
It keeps out the danger
The holes and the pain.

And sometimes you're happy
And sometimes you cry
Half of me is ocean=20
Half of me is sky.

(Repeat Chorus and verse chords)

And some things are over
And some things go on
And part of me you carry
And part of me is gone

(Repeat chorus twice)=20

At the beginning of the song when the band kicks in play this:

	A+-------2--|
	D+-0-1-0----|    =20

Then proceed with the chords.  The solo that Mike Campbell plays in the m=
iddle of the=20
song goes like this:

    e+-----------------------------------3=973------------------|
    A+------------------3----------3-2-0------0-2-3-------------|
    D+-5-3-2-0-2--5-3-2----5-3-2-0------------------0-2-----=20-|
    G+--------------------------------------------------0-5-----|
                                                            ^ ^
            There are actually 3 notes being played at the same time here=
.  But I=20
haven=92t figured out what they are yet.         =20

The ending is played like this:

	G+-----0-------0---|
	B+-1---------1-----|
	E+---0---0-1-----1-|

Just play that over and over and end on the F chord.

The order of the chords in the verses (In the second version in C Major) are C Am F G, then in the chorus, the line "I can't hold on forever" the chords are Dm to Am. Besides that, great work!
