THROUGH THE BARRICADES BY SPANDAU BALLET - JB'S version - best fingerpicked obviosuly!

(Note; G-1 is G with fret 2 instead of 3 on the bottom E string)

Intro; G / G-1 
       Bm7 / Bm7 (fingerpick this last one up and down ,the rest just up)
       C / C-1   then:

E-----------8-------/----------8-------/-----------8-------/
B----8---8---8---8--/----8---8--8---8--/----8---8---8---8--/ 
G------0--------0---/------0-------0---/------0--------0---/ 
D-------------------/------------------/-------------------/ 
A--8----------------/--7---------------/--6----------------/ 
E-------------------/------------------/-------------------/

And end intro on a D (strummed).

 
G              Em                 Bm7  C             Em
Mother doesn't know where love is gone, she say's it must be 
           F                 C      G                Em
youth that keeps the feeling strong. I see it in her face 
            Bm7    C             Em                   F
that's turn to ice, and when she smiles she shows the lines 
       D
of sacrifice.

          C              D             G   G-1    Em
And now I know what they sayin' as our sun begins to fade. 
       C                Am    C        D                G
And we made our love on waste land and through the barricades

G      Em          Bm7 C              Em              F
Father made my history, he fought for what he thought would set 
           C    G             Em             Bm7    C
us somehow free. He taught me what to say in school, I learned
   Em               F                  D
it off by heart but now that's torn in two.

          C              D             G     G-1    Em
And now I know what they sayin' in the music of the parade. 
       C                Am    C        D                G
And we made our love on waste land and through the barricades.

G       Em                 Bm7 C    Em                F 
Born on different sides of life, we fear the same and feel 
            C      G           Em           Bm7  C       Em
all of this strife. So come to me when I'm asleep, we'll cross 
              F              D
the lines and dance upon the streets.

          C              D             G               Em
And now I know what they sayin' as the drums begins to fade. 
       C                Am    C        D                G
And we made our love on waste land and through the barricades.

F       C               G                   F
Oh turn around and I'll be there. There's a scar right 
           C                      G           F
through my heart but I’ll bear it again. Oh I thought we were 
          C                G            D          Em
the human race but we were just another borderline case. And 
    C                                               D
the stars reach down and tell us there’s always one escape. 

G          Em                 Bm7  C            Em  
Oh I don't know when love was gone. But in this troubled land 
     C               D      G            Em       Bm7    
desperation keeps us strong. As Friday’s child is through the soul.
C            Em                    C             D  
with nothing left to loose there's everything to go.

          C              D             G        D
And now I know what they sayin' it's a terrible beauty we've 
Em          C                Am    C        D                G 
made. So we made our love on waste land and through the barricades.

          C              D             G
And now I know what they sayin' as our hearts go to their 
Em             C                Am    C        D
graves. And we made our love on waste land and through the 
     G
barricades.
