Franz Ferdinand - Walk Away chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: Franz Ferdinand
Song:   Walk Away
Album:  You Could Have It So Much Better (2005)

Note: There was already a quite decent tab for this, but still some chords weren't 
right. Also, that tab used capo, which is not necessary.
So here I go with my version, without capo and 100% correct!

Pay particular attention to the fact that the song changes between keys.
This means you have A and F# major and minor chords in the same song. 


Intro:
Am  G  Bm  F#
Am  G  Bm  F#


Verse:
             D
I swapped my innocence for pride
            A
Crushed the end within my stride
         Bm                           F#m
Said I'm strong now I know that I'm a leaver
D             A                     Bm                G
   I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
D          A                  G
   Mascara bleeds a blackened tear, oh
         D              A
And I am cold, yes, I'm cold
           F#m
But not as cold as you are
D              A                     Bm                G
    I love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
D              A                     Bm            G         F#m

  Why don't you walk away?
Bb
  Why don't you walk away?
   Dm                  Bb
No buildings will fall down (don't you walk away)
   Dm                   Bb    
No quake will split the ground (won't you walk away)
    Dm                    Gm
The sun won't swallow the sky (won't you walk away)
Dm               Bb
Statues will not cry (don't you walk away)

   Why don't you walk away?

I cannot turn to see those eyes
   A
As apologies may rise
          Bm                     F#m
I must be strong and stay an unbeliever
D               A                     Bm                G
   And love the sound of you walking away, you walking away
D          A              G
   Mascara bleeds into my eye, oh
            D          A
And I'm not cold, I am old
            F#m
At least as old as you are

La la la la lalalala la lala la la la la

A
  And as you walk away
A
  Oh, as you walk away

  Oh, as you walk away
   Dm                 Bb
My headstone crumbles down (as you walk away)
    Dm                   Bb
The Hollywood winds will howl (as you walk away)
    Dm                Gm
The Kremlin's falling   (as you walk away)
Dm            Bb
Radio Four is static (as you walk away)

   Oh, as you walk away
A
   Oh, as you walk away

   Oh, as you walk away
G       A
Hey


Outro:
Am            (G)
The stab of stiletto
     Bm        F#
On a    silent night
Am                   G 
   Stalin smiles and Hitler laughs
Bm                         F#
   Churchill claps Mao Tse Tung on the back
