Swing Life Away (Acoustic)
Rise Against
 
[Intro]            
                      Cadd9 
                [strum a few times]
e|---------------------------|
B|--0-------------------3----|
G|----0----2--0--------------|     X 3 After the 3rd time strum D
D|------0--------4------2----|
A|----------------------3----|
E|---------------------------|

** Just strum the E, A, D & G strings. (Except for the D chord)
 

[Verse]
              Em          G          C 
Am I loud and clear or am I breaking up?

                Em          G          C
Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck?

    Em         G              C                    D    
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

              Em          G             C    
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first,

              Em         G        C 
Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse.

      Em            G           C                    D
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words.
 

[Chorus]

   Em            G           C
We live on front porches and swing life away,

   Em          G            C  
We get by just fine here on minimum wage. 

   Em        G          C  
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,

  Em                G             C           D  
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand. 
 

[Verse]

                  Em               G           C
I've been here so long; think that its time to move.

                Em            G       C
The winter's so cold summer's over tooooo soon.

   Em             G        C                      D     
So let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow.
              
              Em                 G        C
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know.

                   Em               G             C  
But we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world.

               Em             G            C              D   
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go.
 

[Chorus]

   Em            G           C
We live on front porches and swing life away,

   Em          G            C  
We get by just fine here on minimum wage. 

   Em        G          C  
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,

  Em                G             C           D  
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.

 
[Verse]

              Em          G             C    
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first,

              Em         G        C 
Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse.

      Em            G           C                    D
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words.

 
[Chorus]

   Em            G           C
We live on front porches and swing life away,

   Em          G            C  
We get by just fine here on minimum wage. 

   Em        G          C  
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,

  Em                G             C           D  
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.


Em    G    C
Swing life away,

Em    G    C
Swing life away,

Em    G    C
Swing life away,

Em    G    C
Swing life away.


[Outro]
                      Cadd9 
                  [strum once]

Missing a few chords in the chorus. Overall, it works, but there are better tabs for this song out there.

Gotta have dem bass notes in the intro / outro, but other than that I like it. Thanks.

It is decent, but tune down a half step.
