Switzerland
by The Last Bison

Tabbed by Andy Frey

*Note: You can play these chords in their standard chord shapes but they all sound 
great as an E-shape power chord, except for C#m which needs to be played in its 
standard barre chord shape.

(Play tab over vocals)
                                          E
We tried to sleep up in the banks of snow
        E
But soon discovered it was far too cold
                               E
So we then retreated into town
       E
To find a place where there was level ground


A
A-a-ah a-a-ah
      E
Call home
A
O-o-o-oh o-o-oh
      E
Call home


A                                        E               B
Oh oh Switzerland you've taken 'way my breath now once again
                       A
You've left me with a sense of compassion 
         E        B                                A
For the ones who can't pick themselves up of the ground

                                    E              B
Oh Switzerland I never thought I'd have you as a friend
                    A             
I'm praying it was not at all pretend
            E      B                             A
I need you now to help pick me up from off the ground


(Intro picking)
                                               E
Our drinks were hardly worth the price we paid
   E
But we thank God for them anyway
                                          E
With five minutes left we broke our backs
        E
To spend more money than either of us had


A
A-a-ah A-a-ah
      E
Call home

A
O-o-o-oh o-o-oh
    E
Go home


A                                        E               B
Oh oh Switzerland you've taken 'way my breath now once again
                       A                 
You've left me with a sense of compassion 
         E        B                                A
For the ones who can't pick themselves up of the ground

                                   E              B
Oh Switzerland I never thought I'd have you as a friend
                    A             
I'm praying it was not at all pretend
            E      B                              A
I need you now to help pick me up from off the ground

A                                        E               B
Oh oh Switzerland you've taken 'way my breath now once again
                       A                 
You've left me with a sense of compassion 
         E        B                                A
For the ones who can't pick themselves up of the ground

                                    E              B
Oh Switzerland I never thought I'd have you as a friend
                    A             
I'm praying it was not at all pretend
            E      B                             A

A                                        E               B
Oh oh Switzerland you've taken 'way my breath now once again
                       A                 
You've left me with a sense of compassion 
         E        B                                A

                                    E              B
Oh Switzerland I never thought I'd have you as a friend
