         ***Capo 1st Fret***


[Chords]:

        Badd11        (799800)
        Badd11/E      (099800)
        G#m           (466444)
        F#            (244322)
        F#7           (242322)
        

Theres's a bit of arpeggiating going on throughout the song. It goes along the lines of this,
just find the rhythm when strumming. You can hear it quite easily:


                                 (Badd11)

        e|----------x--------0-----------------------------------------|
        B|----------x----------0---------------------------------------|
        G|----------8--------------8-----------------------------------|
        D|----------9--------------------------------------------------|
        A|----------9--------------------------------------------------|
        E|----------7-------7----7-------------------------------------|


And then:

                                (Badd11/E)
                                 
        e|----------x--------0-----------------------------------------|
        B|----------x----------0---------------------------------------|
        G|----------8--------------8-----------------------------------|
        D|----------9--------------------------------------------------|
        A|----------9--------------------------------------------------|
        E|----------0-------0----0-------------------------------------|

               Badd11
[Verse 1]      I can't get there on my own,
               Badd11/E
               You can't leave me here alone, 
               Badd11
               I'm just tryin'a do what's right,
                     Badd11/E
               For a man ain't a man unless he's fought the fight.


[Fill]         Badd11            Badd11/E       
 


               Badd11
[Verse 2]      I could never point you out,
               Badd11/E
               Waste of space in a faceless crowd,
               Badd11
               Tell me what I have to say,
                      Badd11/E
               If you know what's right then you'll walk away.


                        Badd11
[Chorus 1]     When the walls come down, 
                        Badd11/E
               When the walls come down, 
                        Badd11
               When the walls come down, 
                        Badd11/E

               Badd11
[Verse 3]      One by one I've seen them fall, 
               Badd11/E
               Some just don't show up at all,
               Badd11
               I'm just here to fight the fire,
                    Badd11/E
               Oh a man ain't a man unless he has desire.


                        Badd11
[Chorus 2]     When the walls come down (oooh), 
                        Badd11/E
               When the walls come down, 
                        Badd11
               When the walls come down, 
                        Badd11/E
               When the walls come down.

                                Badd11

                       Badd11
              When the walls come down, 
                       Badd11/E
              When the walls come down.

Nice tab man, great job! I think that in the final part of the song, between the Badd11 and the E/Badd11 there is a sort of G#/Badd11, but honestly I don't how to play it with the standard tuning without breaking my fingers. Maybe it's played only by the piano or the bass guitar.

Yeh I originally put a little walk down like in the other version with the
C > C/B > Am part but I left it out in the end. You could go: Badd11 > Badd11/Bb (699800)> G#m. If you just play the bass notes when walking down it sounds ok, it's not too difficult just kinda angle your index finger back one fret from the Badd11 chord.

The piano plays something else but I can't quite figure it out, it sounds like a 7th chord but the best I could get was: Badd11 > F#7 (x8786x) > Bb > G#m.

I think you can get a nice sound too playing this chord |0-7-9-8-0-0| after the Badd11 :)
