"Hard Times"
set tempo
This is my first tab i've ever submitted, so hope you enjoy. You can pretty much 
play the chords however, bar chords or not.. it'll sound good either way.

Bb Dm Gm F (2x)

As they

Dig your ditches
Count my stitches 
Gm         F
Generation justice wishes for
World at war
Final score
Gm         F
Media come and abhor us
          Bb          Dm
These are hard times
               Gm          F
But we’ll work harder, harder
        Bb           Dm
Give me hard times
              Gm          F
And I’ll work harder, harder

(Same as first verse)
Divided nation
In sedation
Overload of information
That we have grown
To ignore…
Mediocrity applauded
Through these hard times
We’ll work harder
Give me hard times
And I’ll work harder, harder


    Bb   Gm  F     Bb    Gm  F
For revo     lu    tion

Show me some
Bb    Gm  F     Bb
Reso      lu    tion
And this
Gm            F
Battle will be won 

(Same as other verses)
Forced to count the hours
Since two towers
Fell to fiction those higher powers
Putting gods to war
Who keeps score?

Ignorance is still adored
All through these hard times
We’ll work harder, harder
Give me hard times
And I’ll work harder harder
(Same as chorus, but quieter and more dramatic)
For revolution
Show me some revolution

(Then back to the normal progression)
This battle will be won

If they only see you with their fear
And they only hear you with their pride

Then work harder

Harder harder harder...harder
Hard Times

(End how you feel is the best way..but the last chord is Bb)

Nice start mate, but I think this fits it better:

for the verse:

E flat major, D minor, G minor, F major (I usually just play the fifth versions of the first two chords and omit the thirds from them, so it's just Eb5 and D5, sounds a little better)

Then le chorus is: Bb major, Eb major, D minor

Hope this helps everyone.
