My Wrecking Ball

Capo 4 (all chords relative)


Great song off the new album.

I play the C as a C/G and the G as a technically a G6add11 below in the diagram. 

Play the Fmaj7 in the verses and chorus with your thumb on the bass note (see chord diagram). 

Sounds good if you add a few embellishments such as hammer ons etc.

[Intro]

Fadd9 (only strum last 4 strings)


[Verse]

Fmaj7                           C
Driving through the streets tonight
  G                       Am
It's hot I've got the windows down


Fmaj7                   C                       G
I wish I could call you I wish you were still around
Fmaj7                   C
Nothing much left in the tank
G                         Am
Somehow this thing still drives
Fmaj7                         C                 G
It forgot what it needed but somehow still survives


[Bridge]

   Am       Am/B     C          Fmaj7           G
And all the walls we built they must come down


[Chorus]

Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C              G             Fmaj7
won't you come and maybe knock me down
Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C              G             Fmaj7
won't you come and maybe knock me down


Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C               G
won't you come and knock me down,
         C          Fmaj7
come and knock me down, 
C                G              Fadd9 (hold)
come and knock me down tonight


[Verse]

Fmaj7                C
Lying in the bed at night
  G                       Am
Feeling like I'm somebody else
  
Fmaj7                      C                            G
My thoughts inside my head get lost inside the haunted house

Fmaj7                C
Everyone I used to know
 G                        Am
Left their dreams by the door

Fmaj7                      C                            G
I accidentally kick em thats how I can tell you're still not sure


[Bridge]

   Am       Am/B     C          Fmaj7           G
And all the walls we built they rise and they fall


[Chorus]

Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C               G        Fmaj7
wont you come and maybe knock me down,
Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C          G          Fmaj7
wont you come and maybe knock me down
Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C          G            Fmaj7
wont you come and maybe knock me down
Fmaj7
Hey, You're my wrecking ball 
         C              G             
wont you come and   knock me down
         C          Fmaj7
come and knock me down, 
C                G              Fmaj7
come and knock me down   tonight
C                   G         
come and       knock me down
         C          Fmaj7
come and knock me down, 
C                G              Fmaj7
come and knock me down   tonight
  C              G
come and knock me down,
         C          Fmaj7
come and knock me down, 
C                G              Fmaj7
come and knock me down tonight
    C            G
come and knock me down,
         C          Fmaj7
come and knock me down, 
C                G              Fmaj7
come and knock me down tonight


[Verse]

Fmaj7                           C
Driving through the streets tonight
  G                       Am
Its hot Ive got the windows down

F                       C                       G
I wish I could call you I wish you were still around

It looks like on Fallon he's playing capo 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN9R9To2eE8 Nice job btw. I was working out the chords on this myself. pretty dam close. You'll notice he's struming closer to the bridge to get that tighter ring. You also forgot a Fmaj7 at the beginning of the second chorus, second line.

Standard F sounds better IMO
