The Fighter by Gym Class Heroes featuring Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic

No Capo

I couldn't find any good chords for this song, so I decided to upload my own.

Changing chords is a bit challenging, but it's the same progression throughout the 
pre-chorus and the chorus, so it's easy to get used to. The pre-chorus part is just the intro 
in chord form, so it shouldn't be too hard.

Also, special thanks to JoeShmo7667 who got the chorus right.

Intro:

e|----3-3-3-10-8-8-7-7---------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1: (Play Intro)

Just waking up in the morning
And to be well,
Quite honest with ya,
I ain't really sleep well
Ya ever feel like your train of thought's been derailed?
That's when you press on - Lee nails
Half the population's just waitin to see me fail
Yeah right, you're better off trying to freeze hell
Some of us do it for the females
And others do it for the retail
But I do it for the kids, life threw the towel in on
Every time you fall it's only making your chin strong
And I'll be in your corner like Mick, baby, 'til the end
Or when you hear a song from that big lady

Pre-Chorus:

G
D C Bm                             G
Until the referee rings the bell
D C Bm                                 G
Until both your eyes start to swell
D C Bm
Until the crowd goes home
G D C Bm
What we gonna do ya'll?

Chorus - Ryan Tedder:

             G                     Am
Give em hell, turn their heads
           Em                     C
Gonna live life 'til we're dead.
             G                     Am
Give me scars, give me pain
                   Em                             C
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
                        G       Am                     Em      C
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
                         G        Am
Here comes the fighter
                            Em                              C
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
                   G
This one's a fighter

Verse 2: (Play Intro)

And if I can last thirty rounds
There's no reason you should ever have your head down
Six foot five, two hundred and twenty pounds
Hailing from rock bottom, loserville, nothing town
Text book version of a kid going nowhere fast
And now I'm yelling, "Kiss my ass"
It's gonna take a couple right hooks, a few left jabs
For you to recognize you really ain't got it bad

Pre-Chorus:

G
D C Bm                             G
Until the referee rings the bell
D C Bm                                 G
Until both your eyes start to swell
D C Bm
Until the crowd goes home
G D C Bm
What we gonna do ya'll?

Chorus - Ryan Tedder:

             G                     Am
Give em hell, turn their heads
           Em                     C
Gonna live life 'til we're dead.
             G                     Am
Give me scars, give me pain
                   Em                             C
Then they'll say to me, say to me, say to me
                        G       Am                     Em      C
There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
                         G        Am
Here comes the fighter
                            Em                              C
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
                   G
This one's a fighter

D C Bm                                                    G
And when your bones can't take no more (c'mon)

There goes the fighter, there goes the fighter
                         G        Am
Here comes the fighter
                            Em                              C
That's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,
