Bloodline

Tab by Brian Ramirez

Standard tuning

This is my first tab but Im 90% sure this is correct. 
The only questionable parts are the intro, the second chord in the bridge and 
maybe a part in the chorus. 

Here are the weird chords I use
Bb/F#m   Db/Bm           Ab/A
-2----------2-------------X
-2----------X-------------2
-2----------4-------------2
-4----------4-------------2
-4----------4-------------X 
-4----------X-------------4

Intro:
D  A  G  F#m  G  F#m Em F#m
G F#m Bm-A

Verse: 
D                 A            F#m                   Bm
Rolling around a lifetime on a name that spells my past
         D              A              Em            A       
Carried through the mile markers up towards some last laugh
       D                  A          F#m                    Bm
And if fools could only prosper, I'm afraid what they might say
       D                A              Em             A       
From a podium built on generations bleeding what they make

Chorus:
         F#m                    (Bb/F#m)
Because here it comes
                Bm
Watch them all jump right in
          D                                      A
Tell me, how could you refuse to float with the rest of them?
          Em                      G            
You were born into it, there's no shame if you drift
            D           A
Down the bloodline

Interlude: D   A  G  F#m

Verse 2:
D              A           F#m                  Bm
Feeling temperamental underneath a broker sun
          D       A                  Em               A       
A certificate of excellence, but no proof on your pay stub
        D               A          F#m               Bm
And if money's now a problem, I suggest you best believe
              D              A                   Em             A       
There's ten dollars on the table, and a million up his sleeve

Chorus 2:
    F#m                 (Bb/F#m)
And here they come,
                 Bm
 watch them all pass us by
         D                               A
Tell me how could you refuse to look one in the eye?
     Em                     G            
Two sheets to the wind all over again
            D           A
Down the bloodline
            D           A
Down the bloodline


Bridge:
 F#m      (Bb/F#m)         Bm
     Yes, it feels scary         to be ordinary
 D                                        A
     In a world that don't know your name
 F#m            (Bb/F#m)         Db/Bm?
        It would not be weird            if I just disappeared
 D                         A
     Blowing my back out,       trying to hold my weight

Solo:
Em  G  D  A  A-Ab/A
Em  G  A

Verse 3:
D              A            F#m                      Bm
Looking for a doctor with a cure for a broke heart
         D                A                    Em            A       
Seems I spent it all on a miracle just to watch it fall apart
               D              A                             F#m                      Bm
Now there's no room for ill-complaining, I know it's all just what it is
         D           A                     Em          A       
Cherry-pick my best believers and send them off with a kiss

Chorus 3:
         F#m            (Bb/F#m)
Because there they go
                Bm
Watch them all wave goodbye
        D                                       A
Tell me how could you refuse to think it's a wonderful life?
    Em                      G            
Two sheets to the wind all over again
           D            A
Down the bloodline
           D            A
Down the bloodline
           D            A
Down the bloodline
