E A D G B E
Song Name: Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Artist Name: Green Day

This is a simplified version of the song that is played using 4 Main Chords and 1 
Additional Chord at the end of each chorus. The additional chord is B7, though you 
can play E7 instead if you find B7 too hard to play for now.

This is recommended for beginner guitarist to practice and learn the song before 
moving to more advanced chord progressions and styling.

Transpose Up 1 half steps using the Ultimate-Guitar transposing tool to change the 
chords below so you can play with the original Green Day version without a capo.

Alternatively Capo the 1st fret and use the chords below to play with the original 
Green Day version.

Capo Position: 1st fret (to match original song)

[Intro]

Em G D A x 2 


[Verse]

Em        G
 I walk a lonely road
    D             A           Em
The only one that I have ever known
           G        
Don't know where it goes 
D                A              Em
But it's home to me and I walk alone

G  D   A (Play this before entering next verse)

Em            G   
  I walk this empty street
D           A              Em      
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
          G    
Where the city sleeps
    D            A               Em
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

G  D               A            Em
        I walk alone,I walk alone

G  D               A      
        I walk alone,I walk a..


[Chorus]

C    G            D             Em               
  My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
C    G       D                Em
  My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
C     G       D                Em  
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C      G        B7
  'Til then I walk alone

Em      G      D      A    
  Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-,
Em      G      D      A   
 Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-,


[Verse 2]

Em            G        
  I'm walking down the line
D               A               Em
That divides me somewhere in my mind
       G  
On the border line
D               A             Em  
Of the edge and where I walk alone

G  D   A (Play this before entering next verse)

Em       G            
  Read between the lines
D                    A            Em
What's fucked up and everything's alright
         G          
Check my vital signs
   D              A                 Em
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

G  D               A            Em
        I walk alone,I walk alone

G  D               A      
        I walk alone,I walk a..


[Chorus]

C    G            D             Em 
  My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
C    G       D                Em         
  My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
C     G       D                Em
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C      G      B7
'Til then I walk alone

Em      G      D      A     Em
  Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
      G     D
Ah-ah, Ah-ah
        A
I walk alone,I walk a..

C G B7


[Verse 3]
(This verse is shorter than the other verses)

Em            G           
  I walk this empty street
D           A              Em
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
          G      
Where the city sleeps
    D            A
And I'm the only one and I walk a...


[Chorus]

C    G            D             Em 
  My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
C    G       D                Em         
  My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
C     G       D                Em
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C      G      B7
'Til then I walk alone
