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!

[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!

Don’t hold me up!
(I don’t need your help, I’ll stand my ground)
              B                      Ebm
Don’t let me down, down, down, down, down!
