ďOnly HopeĒ
Switchfoot
off the New Way To Be Human CD

tabbed and chorded (?) by Josh Barton (dbarton@iolwest.com)

The chorus makes this a really cool worship song. I played
this at my youth group and it turned out pretty well.... itís
a good song.

(Note: The intro has a wierd keyboard thing that Iím too lazy to
figure out. Sorry.)  ;)

Intro: (this is both strings and guitar but thatís alright.)
(play it 2x)

E---------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------7--9--4----7--7--7\9--4--4\2--0---------------------
D------7/9-----------------------------------2--4--5--4--2--1---
A-2/7-----------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------

While the intro is going on, this is played:
Em  Bm  G  Em  G  Em  C  B

Verse1:
(Em  Bm  G  Em  G  Em  C  B) x4

Chorus:
E  B  A
E  B  A  C#m
A  C#m
Gm  Bm  Em

Play the intro again here... (only one time though, I think)

Verse2:
(Em  Bm  G  Em  G  Em  C  B) x4

Chorus:
E  B  A
E  B  A  C#m
A  C#m
Gm  Bm  Em


Little thingy: (play this 2x)

E------------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------------------------
G--------7--------7-----------------7-----------------7------------------
D-----9--------9-----------9-----9-----------7-----9-----------5--------9
A--7--------5-----------9-----7-----------7-----7-----------7--------9---
E--------------------7-----------------5-----------------5--------7------

Bridge:
(G  Em) x3
(A  B) x3

Chorus:
E  B  A
E  B  A  C#m
A  C#m
Gm  Bm  Em

Then play intro again 2x and end on Em with the cool drum thing... ;)
