Song:  Rise Against -Prayer Of The Refugee

Hey I experienced some chord tabs of Rise Against really failing... 
so I made myself 1 by ears..  Comments are welcome

IMPORTANT NOTE!!!
The tuning of the official song is half-step down.. 
but this tab is already transposed to normal tuning..

If you want to play it like the official... tune ur guitar half-step down 
and let ultimate-guitar do the +1 transposing (so you get proper chord shapes)

At the intro I like to NOT play the low E and A string cause i dont like it..
otherwise just play 8's

I also like to continue playing intro at beginning, after each chorus, and after solo..

HAVE FUN PLAYING!

Intro:

     Ebm        Ebm9      4x
E ||--6----6----6----6--||
B ||--7----7----6----6--||
G ||--8----8----8----8--||
D ||--8----8----8----8--||
A ||--------------------||

Verse 1:
Ebm		      B
Warm yourself by the fire, son
          C#		   Ab
And the morning will come soon.
Ebm			     B
I’ll tell you stories of a better time,
        C#		 Ebm
In a place that we once knew.

Ebm
Before we packed our bags
     B		    C#		    Ab
And left all this behind us in the dust,
Ebm			      B
We had a place that we could call home,
        C#	         Ebm
And a life no one could touch.

 
Chorus:
              Ebm
Don’t hold me up now,
                F#
I can stand my own ground,
                   C#
I don’t need your help now,
                 B
You will let me down, down, down!
              Ebm
Don’t hold me up now,
                F#
I can stand my own ground,
                   C#
I don’t need your help now,
                 B                      B ~
You will let me down, down, down!	Down!

Verse 2:
Ebm			     B
We are the angry and the desperate
      C#	             Ab
The hungry, and the cold,
Ebm			   B
We are the ones who kept quiet,
	    C#	             Ebm
And always did what we were told.
Ebm				    B
But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm,
	C#		Ab
In the safety of your home.
Ebm			     B
We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up
C#		    Ebm
Everything you’re known.

Chorus:
              Ebm
Don’t hold me up now,
                F#
I can stand my own ground,
                   C#
I don’t need your help now,
                 B
You will let me down, down, down!
              Ebm
Don’t hold me up now,
                F#
I can stand my own ground,
                   C#
I don’t need your help now,
                 B                   
You will let me down, down, down!	

Bridge:
Abm	      F#
So open your eyes child,
		Abm
Let’s be on our way.
		    F#
Broken windows and ashes
		Abm
Are guiding the way.
		F#
Keep quiet no longer,
			E
We’ll sing through the day,
			Ebm
Of the lives that we’ve lost,
			B	F# -  C#
And the lives we’ve reclaimed.

Go!
