Song:   Bridge
Artist: Queensryche

By: Steven Smigiel

I put stuff out there for a guy playing solo acoustic guitar. 
I like open chords for the bass & resonation. I’ll always give 
the lyrics and enough tab to get you going. I’m sure all the chords
have more technical names but when I’m playing I use this for a 
reference. -Steve

I tune to standard 440 but one fret lower. So E is Eb etc.
E A D G B E

The * is just sliding your finger down a fret for the bass 
line note then back to the chord shape

Chord Shapes:

   Bm(intro*)   A A*    G G*   Bm   D   C C*  Em  F#m(barre) F#

The Bm** is another chord where you pull off 
and on with the pinky. This repeats continuously 
through the verses.

[Bm intro*] You called me up on the phone today
Struggling with the right words to say
Time can change a thing or two
Time has changed the lives of me and you
But you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] 
it could have been [Bm] different dad

[Bm**] The word brings back a sweet memory
I’m sitting on a bluff on a broken tree
By my side a distinguished man 
Giving me encouragement, telling me I can 
And you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G]
You’re not there

[D] You say Son let’s forget the past
I want another chance, gonna make it last
You’re begging me for a brand new start 
Trying to mend a bridge that’s been blown apart, 
But you know [C][C*][C] [G][G*][G] 
You never [Bm] built it dad

(a nice slide down the E string into the chord works well here)

[Em] And so I sit here through the [F#m] night, 
And I write myself to [G] sleep, 
And time keeps ticking [Bm][Bm**][Bm] [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] 
[Bm][Bm**][Bm] [G][G*][G] [F#] [Bm][Bm**][Bm]

[Bm**] Time has made you finally realize 
Your loneliness and your guilt inside
You’re reaching for something you never had
Turning around now you’re looking back
And you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] I’m not there

[D] You say “Son, let’s forget the past
I want another chance, gonna make it last”
You’re begging me for a brand new start, 
Trying to mend a bridge that’s been blown apart, 
But you know [C][C*][C] [G][G*][G] 

You never [B] built it dad.
You never [A] built it dad.
You never [G] built it dad.
You never [F#] built it dad.
You never [Em] built it dad. [Bm]


--This reminds me of Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin. 
If you listen to it you’ll se what I’m getting at. Good luck. Peace.

Steven
