I do not believe this is correct. I am only a beginner; but, I believe the song is played in the key of F. The instramental part is F Bb A F D C, 2X's. First cord begins on a Bb FMaj. The rest I am having troubles with. Does anyone have the correct cords for this song. Thanks, KJSol.

Actually, if you play these chords relative to capo 1, it's correct.
But, there are a couple wrong (misplaced) chords in there.

It goes like this: (as far as I can tell)

Intro:

D F#m E

(the riff is right)

Verse:

A F#m E D
F#m E Bm D

Chorus:

A E D
F#m E Bm D

D F#m E w/the intro tab

Verse two:

A F#m E D

Bridge:

F#m Bm
Bm F#m E
F#m Bm
Bm F#m E
D (I think this is a D, I'm not sure because I don't have this part down yet)

Ending is same as intro

Hope that helps some.

Intro:

Asus F#m E

(the riff is right)

Verse:

A F#m E asus
F#m E Bm D

Chorus:

A E D
F#m E Bm D

A F#m E

Verse two:

A F#m E D

Bridge:

F#m Bm
Bm F#m E
F#m Bm
Bm F#m E
D

Im almost positive this is correct. You guys were close though

Hey, to all the music scholars. If I do not use a capo, doesn't this make it in the Key of Bb? Verse 1 as follows: Bb Gm F Bb ect....? If so, can anyone of you make this song work in Bb? Thanks!


ben021590 - 2006-06-10

Yep that would work. I have to do that because i can't sing as high as matt and im singing/playing it in a youth service. So just play it without the capo and it would work. by the way that first asus is an a. thanx

if you guys want an easyer way to play it you can transpose it to G
the A changes to G
the F#m cahnges to Em
the E cahnges to D
the Bm changes to Am
the D changes to C

tryit out
