e|12~----10-------------12-10----7-------8-7--|
B|---------12-12-12-12-12-----8~------------8-|

VERSE and CHORUS are pretty much the same...

So when my ghost takes me from you.

You can remember the fool that I am.

F         C
Don't cry baby,
Am/B   G
Don't cry.

BRIDGE 

F                        Am
   It's the lose and the win of the world.
C
      Wrong and right,
       G
Us and them of the world.
F                       Am                 C
   It's the you and the me of the world.
                  Em
But, Only one way out of the world.

F                         Am                 C
    It's the lose and the win of the world.

Wrong and right,
       G
Us and them of the world.
F                        Am                  C
     It's the you and the me of the world.
             G
Only one way out of the world.

Then MAIN RIFF for the solo (last go around of it has the F Em D C Am/B Am)
