Willy Mason - Save Myself
=========================

Amazing song, heres my take on it.
Im not 100% sure if these are the right chords by looking at his
music video, but they sound spot on to me. Although maybe
someone could figure out the ending to the bridge better.

d = downstrokes
u = upstrokes

'When the culture's drowning in a bad dream
Save myself, save myself and
When the old religion is the new greed
Save myself, save myself and
They sabotaged the levee, killed gris gris
Save myself, save myself and
When the vultures copyright the word free
Save myself, save myself and'

Intro/Main Riff x1

'When the elders all are playing make believe
Save myself, save myself and
When they teach us lessons that they don't believe
Save myself, save myself and
When they build up statues but neglect their seeds
Save myself, save myself and
When my love and my hammers all I really need'

Chorus x1

Intro/Main riff x1
'When i live in a country without history
Save myself, save myself and
One that buried its roots with its identity
Save myself, save myself and
We are still searching for liberty
Save myself, save myself and
We still are hiding from reality'
Save myself, save myself and

Repeat chorus as necessary
end on C

i think the bridge is just the second part of the main riff just played slower, also the lyrics for that are 'slow and steady, slow and steady,' over and over. Good job at tabbing it though :) love this song
