BAD RELIGION - Skyscraper (Acoustic Version)

This re-worked version of the 'Recipe For Hate' song is one of the bonus tracks on 'New
Maps Of Hell'. It's played on piano without any guitar, the version is so beautiful and
haunting that I decided to play along on my acoustic.

I played in STANDARD TUNING. You can use these chords in standard to play along
with the recording. There are little bits you can add in yourself like descending scales,
notes and stuff that will go along with the piano notes. But here are the basic chords I 
figured out.

BAD RELIGION - SKYSCRAPER (Acoustic Version)

[Verse 1]
F    Gb                     Db          Ab  A
Come let us make bricks and burn them hard
Bbm           Gb          Db            Ab
We'll build a city with a tower for the world
    Db              Ab       Bbm      Ab     Gb
and climb so we can reach anything we may propose
Db Ab        Gb
anything at all

[Chorus]
Gb    Ab Bbm         Ab
Build me up, tear me down
       Gb       Db
like a skyscraper
Db    Ab/C Bbm     Ab
Build me   up, and tear down
      F         Gb
These joining walls
   Db           Ab     Gb
So they can't climb at all

[Verse 2]
F      Gb      Db                Ab  A
I know why you tore it down that day
Bbm               Gb                Db           Ab
You thought, that if you got caught we'd all go away
       Db             Ab       Bbm        Ab      Gb
Like a spoiled little baby who can't come out and play
Db      Ab       Gb
You had your revenge

[Chorus]
Gb    Ab Bbm         Ab
Build me up, tear me down
       Gb       Db
like a skyscraper
Db    Ab/C Bbm     Ab
Build me   up, and tear down
      F         Gb
These joining walls
   Db         Ab       Gb
So they can't climb at all

Db Gb Db

[Bridge]
     Db
Well madness reigned and paradise fell
     Ab
When Babel's walls came crashing down
        Bbm
Now the echoes roar for a story writ
         Gb
that was hardly understood
    Db    Ab  Gb
and never any good

[Chorus]
Gb    Ab Bbm         Ab
Build me up, tear me down
       Gb       Db
like a skyscraper
Db    Ab/C Bbm     Ab
Build me   up, and tear down
      F         Gb
These joining walls
   Db           Ab     Gb
So they can't climb at all

End with a descending scale that I'm sure that you can figure out. The notes are Gb F Eb
Db. I think anyway.
