-INTRO-

D Riff
D Riff

-VERSE-

D Riff
Parents don't be too kind to your kids
D Riff
Or else how will they grow up to be
D Riff
Louche Parisian sinners and Nashville country singers
D Riff
Singing about the terrible things their parents did

D Riff
Lovers dont be sparing with the truth
D Riff
Break their hearts if that's what you must do
D Riff
Fill them with remorse tinged with hope of course
D Riff                                      E riff
Let their baser instincts pull them through

-CHORUS-

              E7             Gsus2         E riff
And though it seems a little strange to me
                    E7        Gsus2
People never really change it seems

-VERSE-

            D      Dsus2/G
All across America
A7 riff        D             Dsus2/G  A7 riff
Waitresses and boys who play guitar
     D                Dsus2/G
They fall in love and fall out
                           A7 riff
The boys have something to sing about
        D                    Dsus2/G             A7 riff
And the girls go drown their sorrows in the bars

D                        Dsus2/G                A7 riff
While in front rooms all across the old country
D                 Dsus2/G            A7 riff
Sat spellbound in front of their TVs
D                    Dsus2/G
Younger brothers and sisters
                       A7 riff
Wonder at what they're missing
D              Dsus2/G                            A7 riff  E riff
Wonder how the air tastes when you're really free

-CHORUS-

              E7             Gsus2         E riff
And though it seems a little strange to me
             E7           Gsus2           E riff
Well you can never really change it seems
          E7              Gsus2          E riff
We're all broken boys and girls at heart
     E7             Gsus2
Come together, fall apart

-POWER VERSE-
       D5~                                     NEW RIFF
And in Battersea power station the Fisher King
D5~                                         NEW RIFF
Ponders on his ruin among many other things
   D5~
He folds his broken hands
   D5~                  NEW RIFF
Surveys his baron lands
    D5~               D5~            D5
And prays for hope to whisper in the wind

-BRIDGE-

              Gsus2
Cause we were born without reason
      A7
We'll die without meaning
        Dm             Dm/C
And the world will not shrug all that
Gsus2
Much at our passing
        G6
You can try and try and try
    A7                             D  Dsus2/G  A7 riff 2
But no one ever makes it out alive
    D           Dsus2/G            A7 riff 2
But no one ever makes it out alive

-OUTRO-

        D               Dsus2/G
All you broken boys and girls
          Em             A7 riff 2
With your tattered flags unfurled
D                 Dsus2/G        Em   A7 riff 2
Fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King

        D               Dsus2/G
All you broken boys and girls
          Em             A7 riff 2

Fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King

All you broken boys and girls

With your tattered flags unfurled
D                 Dsus2/G        Em   A7 riff 2
Fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King

          Dsus2/G           Dsus/F#        Em    A7 riff 2
Won't you fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King?
          Dsus2/G        Dsus/F#           Em    A7 riff 2
Won't you fix yourselves to fix the Fisher King?

I'm having trouble making the connection between the riffs listed at the top and the riffs listed with the lyrics. Like I get that D Riff=Riff 1, but other than that I don't understand which riffs go where. Am I reading something wrong?

I really apologise - I remember now, I started to edit this and make it better but I was then without a computer for quite a while. I simply forgot to finish the changes. I'll quickly run up an edit! :)
