Green Day - Carpe Diem chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The only recording of this song is from a live show, so no one (other than the band) is
100% sure about the lyrics. You may have to play down or up half a step based on how
your guitar is tuned. There's a couple parts where I'm leaving it up to the individual 
to improvise, like on the solo and that little quiet spot near the end.


D G A D
D A G D

A D
Breaking in a sweat
A D
Like a bomb threat
A D                  Bb A
Use your silhouette, faded out

A D
Nothing left to lose
A D
Detonate the fuse
A D                   Bb A
Another break and you fall out

A D
Getting off a binge
A D
Get a second wind
A D                   Bb A
Another promise, just make a change

A D
Got a broken wing
A D
Hear the angels sing
A D                    Bb A
With a signal that's out of range
Bb A           Bb A
make a change, make a change

D             G   A  D
Carpe diem, a battle cry
D                 A     G  D
aren't we all too young to die
D                   G  A  D
Ask for reason, and no reply
D                  A    A  D
aren't we all too young to die

G        D
Making a living
G        D
Making a killing
G            D
What's worth forgiving
A
A life

A D
And the other night
A D
Barely scraping by
A D           Bb  A
Dominated by passer-by's

(same chords as above)
Feeling out of luck
When the traffic's stuck
And you're feeling so left behind

(same chords)
Getting off a binge
Get a second wind
Another promise, just make a change

(same chords)
Got a broken wing
Hear the angels sing
With a signal that's out of range

Bb A       Bb  A
any change any change

D             G  A   D
Carpe diem, a battle cry
D                 A     G  D
aren't we all too young to die
D                   G  A  D
Ask for reason, and no reply
D                 A     G  D
aren't we all too young to die

G        D
Making a living
G        D
Making a killing
G            D
What's worth forgiving
A
A life

(same chords as above, but palm muted)
Making a living
Making a killing
What's worth forgiving
A life/alive

(same chords as other chorus)
Carpe diem, a battle cry
are/aren't we all too young to die
Ask for reason, and no reply
Aren't we all too young to die

Carpe diem, a battle cry
are/aren't we all too young to die
Ask for reason, and no reply
Are/aren't we all too young to die

If this isn't perfect, it's close enough for now. Stay groovy and keep on rockin'.
