- find a nice rhythm for the chords that you like, I just tabbed the finger placements
  and the short riffs so you know how to play it.-


VERSE 1
A                               Gmaj7
Well the comedown here was easy
                              A
Like the arrival of a new day
                                     Gmaj7
But a dream like this gets wasted without you


CHORUS
          A           Gmaj7
Under the pressure is where we are
          A             Gmaj7
Under the pressure, yeah it's where we are babe


VERSE 2
        A    Gmaj7                           
Holding over    like an illusion 
        A                           
When it all breaks down and we're runaways
               
Standing in the wake of our pain
       Gmaj7
And we stare straight into nothin'

But we're covered all the same
         A
You were raised on a promise
                      Gmaj7
To find out over time
 
Better come around to the new way

Or watch as it all breaks down here


CHORUS
          A
Under the pressure


INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

First, play the same way you did before. But, when the solo ends and the drum stops,
 use these chords:

  A         Bm A         Bm G           Bm G            Bm
e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------|
D|7---------9--7---------9--5-----------9--5------------9-|
A|7---------9--7---------9--5-----------9--5------------9-|
E|5---------7--5---------7--3-----------7--3------------7-|

- just keep strumming those chords, this goes on until the outro.

VERSE 3
A                    Bm
River break down here
A                  Bm G
Stolen away up top
                             Bm G
I wanna climb down the river
              Bm 
Staying alone
         A                    Bm 
When you come here and rested (?)
A               
Lying in a ditch
                    Bm
Pissing in the wind
G
Lying on my back
                  Bm
Loosening my grip

Wading in the water

Just trying not to crack


CHORUS
          A         Bm
Under the pressure
     G
That's where we are babe
          A
Under the pressure

Bm G


OUTRO

the last three minutes of the song is one big drone in A.

This is a GREAT post. Really good job on the placement of the chord markings to emphasize the phrasing of the lyrics. Thank you!
