This is my attempt at a tab of The Fray's new song "The Fighter". For this tab, I'm 
putting the chords in the body with annotations about when to play each riff. The riffs are 
at the bottom.




(Start Riff 1)

Intro: F


Verse 1:
                    C
The lover held her love
                      Am
She begged him not to go
                         C
The fighter wrapped his gloves
                   Am
The fighter said I know, I know, I know
                    G
Just this one last time
                         F
I swear you'll still be mine
                      Am
But he can't promise much
                      G
He goes for one last touch, one last touch

(End Riff 1)



(Start Riff 2)

Chorus 1:
F                          Am      G
Maybe we were meant to be lonely, lonely
F                         Am     G
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
F                          Am       G
Loneliness has always been with me, with me
F                             Am   G
But maybe we don't have to be all alone

(End Riff 2)


Break 1: C


(Start Riff 3)

Verse 2:
                    C
The fighter goes inside
                      Am
The doubt is creeping in
                       C
He swings with all his might
                       Am
At all that might have been
                        F
And she's in love with him
                        G
But lovers don't always win
                       Am
He never even saw the swing
                  C
She calls out his name, calls his name

(End Riff 3)



(Start Riff 2)

Chorus 1:
F                          Am      G
Maybe we were meant to be lonely, lonely
F                         Am     G
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
F                          Am       G
Loneliness has always been with me, with me
F                             Am   G
But maybe we don't have to be all alone

(End Riff 2)



Bridge 1: F F Am C

F                    Am     G       F
    What breaks your bones
           Am          G          F
Is not the load you're carrying
                Am   G      F
What breaks you down
          Am      G
Is all in how you carry

G Bm Bm Em Em



(Start Riff 4)

Verse 3:
    Em    Em       D
The lover held her love
                      Bm
She begged him not to go
                  D
She unwrapped his gloves
                 Bm
The lover said I know, I know, I know
                     G
Kissed his trembling lips
                  A
She touched fingertips
                       Bm
But somehow they both know
                D
He's not coming home, Coming home

(End Riff 4)



(Start Riff 5)


Break 1: G G Bm A x4


Chorus 2:
G                          Bm       A
Loneliness has always been with me, with me
G                         Bm     A
Maybe we were meant to be on our own
G                      Bm       A
But I got to try or it will destroy me
G                               Bm    A
Cause maybe we don't have to be all alone

Very well, but in my point of view,
in the "Verse 1" there were 2 mistakes:

the G chord where it says: "one last time" it should be the F Chord, and in the next line instead of the F Chord it should be the G chord,

*And you have:
G
Just this one last time
F
I swear you'll still be mine.

*And I think it should sound Better like this:
F
Just this one last time
G
I swear you'll still be mine

*And just one more mistake where it says:
G
He goes for one last touch, one last touch

-it will sound better with the C Chord:
C
He goes for one last touch, one last touch

Sorry for my weird english, because im spanish :D
