Verse 1
Bm
All I saw was smoke and fire
                   G
I didnt feel a thing
    D              F#m
But suddenly I was rising higher
Bm                                        G
And I felt like I just made the biggest mistake
       D                       F#m
When I thought about my unborn child

Pre-Chorus
                          A
When I thought about my wife
                        Em
And the answer rang out clear
                     A
From somewhere up above
                 Em                                G
No greater gift has man than to lay down his life for love   (12th Fret Palm Mute)

Chorus
G  D          A                Bm
       I wonder, Would I give my life?
G  D   A                        Bm
       Could I make that sacrifice
G  D   A                         Bm        A               Em
       If it came down to it, would I take the bullet? I would 
         G               Bm
Yes I would, for you

(Intro Riff)

Verse 2        
Bm
Baby you dont understand
                               G
I dont understand it all myself
D                                     A          Bm
Theres a brother on my left and another on my right
Bm
And in his pocket just like mine 
                G
Hes got a photograph
         D                       F#m
And theyre waiting for him back home

Pre-Chorus
                       A
Its weighing on my mind
                         Em
Im not trying to be a hero
                A
I dont wanna die
                        Em
But right now in this moment
                     
You dont think twice


(Chorus x1)

Bridge
A
You dont think about right
Em
You dont think about wrong
A
You just do what you gotta do
Em F#m G              
      To fend your own
A                 Em        G
And Id do the same, for you.

Guitar Solo - Bm G Bm G Bm G A G

G D A
      I would give my life
G D    Em (building)             (Drop Out)
     I would make that sacrifice

G  D   A                         Bm        A               Em
       If it came down to it, would I take the bullet? I would 
         G              
Yes I would, for you

(Chorus Progression until end)

Good job compiling the tab! But I think that the intro should be:


e|--------------------------------------------0-----|
B|--------------0---------0-------------------------|
G|11\9-----------------------------7--------------7-|
D|---------9---------9---------9--------9-----------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|


I saw Keith Urban playing it on Ellen and that's how he plays it.

The intro is definitely right. If you watch the video, for a brief moment at the beginning it shows him playing. and you can see he's using 7th and 9th fret at the beginning

this is the correct way to play the intro, slide with your ring finger and have your index finger on the G chord and 2 frets up, but put the pressure on your ring finger till you get to the pull off from the 9 to the 7.
