Break on through to the other side, break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side, yeah.


[Repeat Intro/Verse and Bridge]

We chased our pleasures here, dug our treasures there
But can ya still recall the time we cried?


[Repeat Chorus]

Break on through to the other side, break on through to the other side.


[Repeat Intro/Verse during keyboard solo]

Everybody loves my baby, everybody loves my baby,
She get...She get...She get...She get...high.....


[Repeat Intro/Verse and Bridge]

I found an island in your arms, country in your eyes,
Arms that chain, eyes that lie.


[Chorus revised]

[Organ solo]

Just add a bit of reverberation and chorus.  It also sounds ok
on acoustic guitars.

kjohnson08, x577xx is the same thing as xx0232. They are both a D. If you were on acoustic, the open D would be better, on electric like Krieger, your D chord is better. nice tab

Krieger is actually playing the D chord in the tab. Missing a few notes here and their, but overall great tab.
