The Flaming Lips
Be Free, A Way - Chords
The Terror

I play it with a capo on the 4th fret. If you don't have a capo, scroll down
to see the non-capo version.

From what I can tell, most of the actual song drones on one or two chords.
These chords are pretty much based on the vocal melody, but it still sounds
good if you play along with the album or by yourself. 

All chords relative to the capo on the 4th fret.

Verse 1 (0:11-0:37)

     G   Am  G    Am
     Did God make pain
     G  Am G   Am
     So we can know
     G   Am   G    Am G    D
     The high that no-thing is

Verse 2 (0:37-1:09)

     G  Am   G     Am
     The sun shines down
     G   Am    G     Am
     But we're still cold
     G   Am    G  Am
     Its light is not
     G  D    G    D  
     A light that shines

Chorus 1 (1:09-1:42)

     C   Dm   C Dm
     The way, a way
     C   Dm  C   Dm
     But how can we
     C  Dm   C    Dm
     Be free when all
     C   G    C   G
     Our days are empty

Verse 3 (1:42-2:08)

     G  Am   G Am
     Is love a god
     G   Am  G  Am
     That we control
     G  Am  G  Am    G   D
     To try to trust the pain

Verse 4 (2:08-2:40)

     G   Am  G      Am
     The sun shines down
     G   Am G     Am
     But we can't see
     G   Am    G      Am  G  D     G   D
     Its light lights eve-ry-thing the same

Chorus 2 (2:40-3:06)

     C  Dm    C Dm
     Be free, a way
     C   Dm  C   Dm
     But how can we
     C    Dm   C  Dm
     Find arms to hold
     C   G
     The days


Chorus 3 (3:06-3:38)

     C  Dm    C Dm
     Be free, a way
     C   Dm  C   Dm
     But how can we
     C    Dm   C  Dm
     Find arms to hold
     C   G     C G
     The days, a way


Outro (3:38-4:11)

     C Am   C Am
     A way, A way
     C Am   C Am
     A way, A way
     G Am
     A way
