 1. With the horses that you ride,      And the feelings left inside,

   Comes a time you need to               leave, all, that, behind,
   And the people gather 'round           for, the, last, show,

 (Just to point out for anytime you get into the chorus, ingore the last part note of
  the verse and just get on to the D. Whichever works for you this is how I do it)

[Chorus]
 D                 F
 Well there is all we want
                        Am
 To live and die by the sword,
                               G
 Well they tried to complicate you
                      D
 But you left it all behind
                    F
 All the worldly possessions
                  Am
 Are left for recollections

 And finally it's all gone

 During the solo you can play the chorus if your going for rythym.

    Maybe use a Wa-Wa pedal for this part because it sorta sounds like it
    is being used in the song. Your choice!

  Use a different strumming pattern,
  play, mute it and strum, rinse and repeat

  D                 F
 Well there is all we want
                        Am
 To live and die by the sword,
                               G
 Well they tried to complicate you
                      D
 But you left it all behind
                    F
 All the worldly possessions
                  Am
 Are left for recollections

 And finally it's all gone

 Hold each note for 2 beats.

      (The Wa-wa pedal or turn the gain up)

Let that last power chord ring and that ends the song!

  Thanks all!
