[Intro]

Dm - Bb - F - C
Dm - Bb - F - C


[Verse]

Dm     Bb                F        C
Do you know what's worth fighting for,
Dm        Bb        F      C
When it's not worth dying for?
Dm      Bb        F      C
Does it take your breath away
Bb                         C
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Dm       Bb         F       C
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
Dm        Bb       F        C
And you look for a place to hide?
Dm      Bb             F      C
Did someone break your heart inside?
Bb                        C5
You're in ruins


[Chorus]

F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5  F5       C5
Throw up your arms into the sky,
Bb5   F5    C5
You and I


[Verse]

Dm          Bb     F          C
When you're at the end of the road
Dm      Bb       F        C
And you lost all sense of control
Dm        Bb           F           C
And your thoughts have taken their toll
Bb                                       C
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Dm   Bb             F      C
Your faith walks on broken glass
Dm      Bb       F       C
And the hangover doesn't pass
Dm        Bb   F        C
Nothing's ever built to last
Bb                 C5
You're in ruins.


[Chorus]

F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5  F5       C5
Throw up your arms into the sky,
Bb5   F5    C5
You and I


[Bridge]

Dm      Bb     F            C
Did you try to live on your own
Dm       Bb               F        A
When you burned down the house and home?
Dm      Bb         F           A
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Bb                           C
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone


[Solo]

F5 - C/E - D5 - C5 - Bb5 - F5 - C5
F5 - C/E - D5 - C5 - Bb5 - F5 - C5
Bb5 - F5 - E5


[Break]

Dm - Bb - F - C
Dm - Bb - F - C


[Verse]

Dm        Bb       F           C
When it's time to live and let die
Dm      Bb        F       C
And you can't get another try
Dm         Bb         F         C
Something inside this heart has died
Bb                 C5
You're in ruins.


[Chorus]

F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5  F5       C5
Throw up your arms into the sky
F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5   C/E  D5
One, 21 guns
C5            Bb5  F5       C5
Throw up your arms into the sky,
Bb5   F5    C5
You and I

Are you playing the C5* as in 0-3-2 rather than the usual way? If you are the chorus should sound fine.

Sorry I have just realised a mistake C5* has been written wrongly above it is actually:

C5*
e|-----------
B|-----------
G|-----------
D|---2-------
A|---3-------
E|---0-------

Sorry about this
