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.


    C/G   G   Am  Fadd9   Fmaj7   Am/B
e|---0----0----0----3-------0-----0-|
b|---1----1----1----1-------1-----1-|
g|---0----0----2----2-------2-----2-|
d|---2----0----2----3-------3-----0-|
a|---3----2----0----x-------x-----2-|
e|---3----3----x----1-------1-----0-|


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          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.
