Subject: CRD: Don't Tear Me Up - Mick Jagger

I just figured this one out last night and thought others might

be interested...corrections welcome.



Don't Tear Me Up  by Mick Jagger

(intro -- organ/hi-hat A-D-A-D)


A                              D

Life is rich, but it's way too short

                  Bm                       D

You make a lot of money, but you just want more

                 A                      D

I don't need the pain, right here in my heart

                 Bm                        D

But I hate every minute when we're so far apart



It was love in a minute, it was love in a flash

It brings me no pleasure, just a stab in the back

It brings me no comfort, it brings me no peace

A weight on my shoulder, it's a fatal disease

(chorus 1)

   F#m   A       D   (power chords, then down)

So don't tear me up

Bm                            D

I don't ever want to see your picture again

   F#m   A         D      (power chords, then down)

And don't poison my blood

Bm                            D

I don't ever want to see your face anymore

A-D-A-D (piano aaaa)


Gonna finish it quick, gonna finish it clean

Don't wanna be bitter, I don't wanna be mean

I feel like we're driving down a dead end street

I've come so far I wanna crash the car, I wanna land right on my feet

(chorus 2)

I said don't tear me up

I don't ever want to see your picture again

I said don't tear me up

I don't ever want to see your face anymore


E     D            A          Bm                     D

But I dream of you constantly, you'll be my angel of light

E          D             A             Bm                       D

And in the dark rooms of sleeplessness, you'll be my lover each night...

[solo - A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D]

Life is a bitch, it's way too short

Unlike a politician it just can't be bought

Think about the tenderness, and think about the craziness

And if you ever wanna hate me come and stick a knife right in my chest

(repeat chorus 2)


I said don't tear me up

I said don't tear me up

So don't poison my blood

I don't ever want to see your picture again

Very close on the chord progression. It sounds better (at least to me) with A-D-Bm-G. The second D just sounds a bit too high.
