                           Paper Wings (Acoustic)
                                Rise Against

One of my all time favorite songs from one of my all time favorite bands.
 If you want to tune your guitar down for this, there is nothing wrong 
with that. Just know that you will be playing 2-and-a-half steps lower 
thtn those of us who have capos, And i'll tack that on there so you can 
play, too! This is meant to be played on an acoustic guitar and strummed
 with some sort of rythym. Okay, let us start!
**Edit: 10-17-10; Fixed some timing problems and got rid of some extra

(Capo'd version)

Intro:
C G Am F x3

Verse 1:
Am               C               G               F  
One last thing I beg you please, just before you go
     Am                 C           G                  F   
I've watched you fly on paper wings half way round the world until they
Am               C              G                  F
burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiraling down
Am                 C                 G             F
Landing somewhere far from here with no one else around
                     G
To catch you falling down
                    F
And I'm looking at you now

Chorus:  
    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am           F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I

Verse 2:
Am            C              G                  F  
Swing for the fences son, he must have told you once
Am          C             G               F  
 That was a conversation you took nothing from so raise your  
Am            C         G                   F  
glass now and celebrate exactly what you've done
Am            C             G                    F  
Just put off another day of knowing where you're from
                          G  
You can catch up with yourself
       F
if you run
 
    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am           F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                   Am         F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I

Break:
simply strum C for a few measures, if you want to include it, or just go on

Solo:
C G Am F x2
C G C Am F F G

Verse 3:
            C              
Is this the life that you lead?
       G             
Or the life thats led for you
     Am
Will you take the road
           F
Thats been laid out before you?
     C              Am             F    
Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight

(Somewhere else tonight)

chorus: X2
    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am          F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I


    C                      Am      F  
And I can't tell if you're laughing
   C                         Am          F   
Between each smile there's a tear in your eye
          C                        Am   F   
There's a train leaving town in an hour
         C                    Am       F   
It's not waiting for you and neither am I
