Verse:
G                     D
You lost faith in the human spirit
F                      C
You walk around like a ghost
Cm                 G
Your star-spangled heart
Am                   D
Took a train for the coast

G                       D
When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
F                     C
So how'd you lose the light?
Cm                  G
Was it blown by the wind,
Am                  D
In the still of the night?
C
We're up against the wall


Chorus: (Listen for timing)
G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C    D

Up against the wall

There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down

You're gonna get back on your feet

(No you can't stop now)


Verse:
G                     D
I always saw you as a kind of keeper
F             C
A mother to a child
Cm                       G
But your boys have grown soft
Am                       D    Dsus2
And your girls have gone wild

G                   D
From the blue ridge to the black hills
F              C
To the redwood sky
Cm             G
The season may pass
Am                    D
But the dream doesn't die
C
Why did you drop the ball?

Chorus: (Listen for timing)
G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D

Up against the wall

There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down

You're gonna get back on your feet

(No you can't stop now)


G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D

When they break your heart

When they cause your soul to mourn

Remember what I said

Boy you was battle born

(No, you can't stop now)

Chorus: (Listen for timing)
G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D

Up against the wall (Up against the wall)

There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down (Up against the wall)

You're gonna get back on your feet

Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)


G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D

Did they break your heart? (Did they break your heart?)

Did they cause your soul to mourn? (Cause your soul to mourn?)

Remember what I said (Remember what I said)

Boy you was battle born (You were battle born)

Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)


G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D

Come on show your face (Come on show your face)

Come on give us one more spark (Give us one more spark)

So we'll start a fire (So we'll start a fire)

Unless we fall into the dark (fall into the dark)

And you can't stop now (No, you can't stop now)


G    D  C   D  Em   G  Am  Am Cmaj9  C  D  G

You never know

If you never learn

You never shine

If you never burn

The rising tide

The undertow

The venom and

The overflow

You turn away

Nice one @juanman-ko10! I thought that C was wrong but couldn't figure it out. You're correct, it should be Cm there.
I'm Fairly sure the Am is correct though @DrLeonard, but thanks for the interest all the same.
