About this tab version
This tab has the chords to "Heavy Hangs the Albatross," made especially for those who want to play the rhythm guitar parts (Shawn Milke's). Just listen carefully to the song to hear how you could play that part--and it should be pretty easy :) Best played in Drop D (DADGBe) tuning. You may also use Standard D--just transpose the chords/key one step lower. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Verse]
Bm                                  G
I've made up my mind and I will be leaving.
               A                                   F#m
Leaving this cruel, dark world for the soulless to share.
F#m
But first... 
            Bm                             
Women will shriek and watch their husbands bleed.
              G
Children will cry and watch their mothers die.
          A
Because tonight... 
                     F#sus4
Tonight we all go to hell! 
F#
Why?
Bm                  
I have to let go of what happened to my love.
G                                                     A
I am taking out on everyone else all the problems I've brought on myself.
When I made your heart melt.
 F#m
My belle, we soon will meet again.

[Pre-Chorus]
G                              A           Bm
There's nothing left for me to lose except confusion.
                                               F#m
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away.
G                             A
There's no one left to talk me down.
Bm 
My feet are slipping... 

[Chorus]
Bm           A                               G
One day I'll hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
      A          Bb
Of the day that I left her.
Bm         A
Goodbye, so long.
                 G              A       Bb
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
G              A             F#m
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever... 

[Verse 2]
Bm                           G
Now the only question left is how to take you all down with me.
A
The coroner will have his hands full tonight.
F#m
That is if he is not among the dead.
Bm                                      G
Dead will choke the streets with such vulgarity that grown men will weep.
A                         F#m
And then you will find the end is drawing night.

[Pre-Chorus]
G                              A           Bm
There's nothing left for me to lose except confusion.
                                               F#m
I'm finished trying to tell myself this will go away.
G                             A
There's no one left to talk me down.
Bm
My feet are slipping... 

[Chorus]
Bm           A                               G
One day I'll hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
      A          Bb
Of the day that I left her.
Bm         A
Goodbye, so long.
                 G              A       Bb
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
G              A             F#m
For better, or even for worse, remember me... 

[Bridge]
G                       A
The dizziness stuns me, would someone please distract me?
Bm
Can I really get through this?
Bm
Can I really betray myself?
Bm
For better or worse, remember forever

G                       A
The dizziness stuns me, would someone please distract me?
(There's sweat on my hands and a knife at my throat.)
Bm
Can I really get through this?
(And as the blade bites my skin)
Bm
Can I really betray myself?
(Annabel appears...)
N.C.
For better or worse, remember me forever

[Chorus]
Bm           A                               G
One day I'll hope my name doesn't bring back memories.
      A          Bb
Of the day that I left her.
Bm         A
Goodbye, so long.
                 G              A       Bb
My heart belongs to the one I am chasing after.
G              A             F#m                  Bm
For better, or even for worse, remember me forever...
