Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - The Absent chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Capo 2nd fret
main chord change is: Dsus2  A  E

(you can play it without capo, if you're able to play the whole song with barré-chords)

(you can also play normal D instead of Dsus2, but i actually think Dsus2 sounds better)

Intro:

Dsus2  A  E  E  4x (play E two times, also in the verses)
Dsus2  E 2x

Verse:

Dsus 2        
          A         E                    Dsus2
donīt it look like rain, mama
          A       E                      Dsus2
donīt it look so cold outside 
         A            E                  Dsus2
all the people seem scared and tired
             A           E               Dsus2
and all the stars seem alight 
           A          E                  Dsus2
thereīs no use in the air, anymore mama
           A            E                Dsus2
thereīs no use in their eyes

        A               E                Dsus2
i just come to say itīs over
        A               E                Dsus2
i just come to say goodbye 
           A             E               Dsus2
i wonīt compete with the absent
           A              E              Dsus2
i wonīt compete for the prize

E  A  Dsus2  A

          A          E                   Dsus2
all them faces are glowing, mama
           A            E                Dsus2
you canīt see whatīs inside
           A             E               Dsus2
thereīs no use for them being anymore
              A             E            Dsus2
they got the calls in their eyes
            A           E                Dsus2
it seems a waste to be careless, mama
                A            E           Dsus2
thereīs no-one here left to fight

E  A  Dsus2  A

Am(4.fret)           A               Dsus2  E                 
something - give me something, weīre fallin away
            Am(4.fret)     A            Dsus2   E                  
through the minds and the notions weīve only depraved
       Am(4.fret)A           Dsus2      E                   
itīs a tired imitation that calls your name
        Am(4.fret) A           Dsus2        E                  
itīs a cursed invitation that haunts your grave

Dsus2
        A               E                Dsus2
i just come to say itīs over
        A               E                Dsus2
i just come to say goodbye 
           A             E               Dsus2
i wonīt compete with the absent
           A              E              Dsus2
i wonīt compete for the prize


Hope the chords fit for you. I'm not pretty sure about the lyrics.
