City & Colour - Against The Grain

Standard Tuning
Capo 4


This is a great song, a side note thought... this is normally played in the key of E, but I find it easier
with CAPO 4.
Listen to the song for the finger-picking pattern, or just strum if you're lazy.

[INTRO]

    C/G    Am    G        Fmaj7    
    C/G    Am    G        Fmaj7    


[VERSE 1]

         C/G          Am
you need not to climb mountaintops
         G               Fmaj7 
you need not to cross the sea
         C/G    Am
you need not to find a cure
    G                      Fmaj7
for everything that makes you weak
         C/G          Am
you need not to reach for the stars
     G            Fmaj7
when life becomes so dark


[CHORUS]

    C/G                Am
and when the wind does blow against the grain
G               Fmaj7
you must follow your heart
G                    C/G  
you must follow your heart

C/G


[VERSE 2]
            C/G            Am 
when all your friends have come and gone
        G             Fmaj7
and the sun no longer shines
        C/G           Am
and the happiness for which you long
          G                  Fmaj7
is washed away like an Ocean's tide
     C/G                Am
when all the hard times outweigh the good
    G                  Fmaj7
and all your words are misunderstood


[CHORUS]
    C/G                Am
and when the day seems lost from the start
G                   Fmaj7
you must follow your heart
G                    C/G  
you must follow your heart

C/G



[VERSE 3]
       C/G  Am
if you feel you've paid the price
         G                   Fmaj7
and your wounds should cease to heal
    C/G            Am
and everything you love in life
G                    Fmaj7
spins like a winding wheel
   C/G                Am
if you should wake to find you're abandoned
        G               Fmaj7
and the road you travel leads to a dead end


[CHORUS]

     C/G                Am
when death creeps in to play it's part
G                  Fmaj7
you must follow your heart
G                    C/G  
you must follow your heart
