These are the base chords and such, listen to the song to get down the little licks. Intro: It starts off with a cool cowboy horse trot. It's played like this: E---------| B---------| G---------| D---0-2-0-| A---------| E-3-------| Pre-Verse: F F C C F G Verse: G Em F G Em F C D G Em F C G Am7 D Chorus: C D Em Bm C C G C D Em Bm C Dsus4 Dadd9 D Bridge/Ending: In the middle is the Bridge, which is the same as the Ending. It's played like this: E---------------------| B---------------------| G-----0-0---2-0-------| D-0-2-----2-----2-2-0-| A---------------------| E---------------------| And ended like this: E---------------------| B---------------------| G---------------------| D---------------2-0---| A---0-3-3-3-0-------3-| E-3-----------3-------| So the order is: I V PV V PV V PV C V PV B PV V PV C V PV E I - Intro PV - Pre-Verse V - Verse C - Chorus B - Bridge E - Ending And thats it! Listen to the song to get the timings and the strum pattern and the tempos right, because those all change quite a few times. They wont let me post the lyrics, but they are rather simple to get. Rock on. =================================================================== =================================================================== Worse Comes To Worst is yet to be transcribed. =================================================================== =================================================================== Stop In Nevada is yet to be transcribed. =================================================================== =================================================================== If I Only Had The Words To Tell You Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=747 Transcribed By: Bougeman Bb Bb/D Eb Bb/D If I only had the words to tell you Cm7 Ab7 F7 If you only had the time to understand Bb Bb/D Eb Bb/D Though I know it wouldn’t change your feelings Cm7 F7(sus4) Bb Db F7 And I know you’ll carry on the best you can.
