This is my favorite song by this great band, it's pretty catchy and simple, hope you like it!

NOTE: all chords are to be played major unless pointed differently

Intro: just pick up the strumming, it's pretty easy
E-E-B-C#
E-E-E-B(fade)

Verse:
E
On the bridge made of stone
E
Stands a man all alone
B
The bridge was his motivation
C#
It worked him to the bone
E                              E
With every nail that he drove, it drove him farther from his own
B                           C#
In his punishing isolation, but the bridge just feels like home

E-E-E-B(fade)

E
She didn't feel quite the same
E
She despised the bridge and who he became
B
She left in devastation
C#
She left him there in shame

E                            E
He said, "I don't understand, this was not part of the plan..."
B
But it got lost in the translation
C#                   
Like a castle made of sand

A-B-A-B(down strokes, build up on the last chord)

(I recomend power chords for the chorus, starting with your E on the 5th string)
E                         B
In all the years he's spent struggling
C#                        A      B-A-B  
He's been haunted at every turn
E                         B
He fights the fear as he's growing old
C#                        A
And reminds us in all the he's learned
That we build and burn

E-E-E-E
Burn!
Burn!
Burn!
Burn!

Interlude:
E-E-E-B-C#-A

E-E-B-C#(verse)

E
Here I am all alone
E
On that bridge made of stone
B                              C#
With smothering motivation, I'm working to the bone

E
In the end it's what I've known
E
It's what I hate, but have to show
B                             C#
The bridge is my dedication; the bridge just feels like home

A-B-A-B(down strokes)

E                         B
In all the years I've been struggling
C#                        A      B-A-B  
I've been haunted at every turn
E                         B
I fight the fear as I'm growing old
C#                        A
And remembering all that I've learned
That we build and burn


E                         B
In all the years he's spent struggling
C#                        A      B-A-B  
He's been haunted at every turn
E                         B
He fights the fear as he's growing old
C#                        A
And reminds us in all the he's learned
That we build and burn

E-E-E-E(fade)
Burn!
Burn!
Burn!

Enjoy!

I don't know why the bad ratings. These chords work perfectly played acoustic. . .
