[Verse 1]

Cm
Whatever it takes to break,
Gotta do it,
From the burning lake or the Eastern gate,
You'll get through it.


[Chorus 1]

Rattle that lock and lose those chains,

Rattle that lock and lose those chains,
Ab
Rattle that lock and lose those chains,
Fm
Rattle that lock,

[Verse 2]

Cm
Let's go do it,
Have it all our way,
Go back to where we blew it,
And lose our heads along the way.


[Chorus 2]

Ab
So long sin, au revoir chaos,
Fm
If there's a heaven it can wait,
Ab
So long sin, au revoir chaos,
Fm
If there's a heaven

Rattle that lock,
Rattle that lock, lose those chains
Rattle that lock,
Rattle that lock, lose those chains


[Verse 3]

Cm
And all the other travellers,
Become phantoms to our eyes,
Furies and the revellers,
Fallen angels in disguise.


[Chorus 3]

Ab
No discord chance or rumour,
Fm
Is going to interrupt this bliss,
Ab
No discord chance or rumour,
Fm
Is going to interrupt this,

[Verse 4]

Cm
So let's get to it,
it's calling like a flame,
Through the darkness and the night,
The world suspended on a golden chain.


[Chorus 4]

Ab
No discord chance or rumour,
Fm
Is going to interrupt this place,
Ab
No discord chance or rumour,
Fm
To interrupt this,

The rhythm for this song live is played as just (1-2-3-4-).
However on the record there is a more complex  (1&2&3-4-)(1&2&3&4-)
pattern in the verse. In the chorus between the Ab and the Fm you can 
play a Gm as a passing chord.
