Artist:Manic Street Preachers
Song:Condemned To Rock 'N' Roll
Tabbed by:Matthew Ford

Condemned To Rock N' Roll


Tuning:DADGBE (I think one guitar is in DGCFAD, but I've tabbed it 
in drop D to save from to much complication)


This is gonna take up a lot of space.
There are some bits you may not be able to play at first, but just 
keep doing it, coz it's well
worth it!

VERSE


No innocent exit when hope dies,
And claustrophobia buys my mind,
I ran to breathe contagious lies,
No reason for just living life,
Ripcord opens but my soul is cold,
With you  never felt more alone,
Skin never sweating dignity,
Kept my line beneath ecstacy.


BRIDGE


This fragile prison of sanity,
An ocean wave to death babe,
Masochistic love going nowhere,
You're nothing, pestilence, a seed.


CHORUS


Lips I kiss just another plague,
love can't fix the hole they made,
Condemned to rock and,
Oblivions all we know
