          Swing Life Away - Rise Against
There are a lot of tabs for this song out there but This one seems way clearer to me and
will definitely help out anyone who wants to learn this song. I've included the acoustic
solo which I'd like to say is perfect. Please rate this tab, whether you like it or
not... I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep tabbing. Any comments, email me at
riley_m15@hotmail.com, subject: "your tab" Thanks. ENJOY

              Eb          Gb          Bsus
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
                Eb           Gb       Bsus
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    Eb         Gb             Bsus                 C#6
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?


              Eb          Gb            Bsus
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
              Eb          Gb           Bsus
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
      Eb            Gb          Bsus                    C#6
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words


   Eb            Gb          Bsus
We live on front porches and swing life away,
   Eb          Gb           Bsus    c#sus4
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Eb        Gb         Bsus
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Eb                Gb            Bsus        C#sus4
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand


                  Eb                 Gb          Bsus
I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
                Eb             Gb       Bsus
The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon
Eb             Gb       Bsus                         C#6
Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow


              Eb                 Gb       Bsus
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
                   Eb                Gb            Bsus
But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
               Eb             Gb           Bsus                C#6
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go


   Eb            Gb          Bsus
We live on front porches and swing life away,
   Eb          Gb           Bsus    C#sus4
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Eb        Gb         Bsus
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Eb                Gb            Bsus       C#sus4      Bsus         C#sus4
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand....til you hold my hand
