Jake Bugg - Lightning Bolt chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Play the chords as open chords - apart from the B. This should really be B5, but 
power chords don't sound great on acoustic guitars.

Strumming pattern goes 2 beats and a pause on the E, then 2 beats on both A & B. 
On the bridge "Everyone...", just use a racing down strum.


Intro: E B A x4 

E              B             A    E
Morning, itís another pure & grey morning
      B             A      E
Donít know what the day is holding
       B      A
When I get uptight
      E                   B         A        (E)
And I walk right into the path of a lightning bolt

E             B   A           E
Sirens, of an ambulance comes howling
      B           A         E
Right through the centre of town and
       B         A
No one blinks an eye
      E                         B         A       (E)
And I look up to the sky in the path of a lighting bolt

E               B      A      E
Met her, as the angels parted for her
        B    A          E
But she only brought me torture
    B           A
But thatís what happens
          E                         B         A        (E)
When itís you whoís standing in the path of a lightning bolt

Link: E A B E E E

A
Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth
           E
But I just stand by and I wait my time
             A                               
They say you gotta toe the line they want the water not the wine
           E               B            A         (E)
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

E               B        A           E
Chances, people tell you not to take chances
          B              A          E
When they tell you there aren't any answers
          B           A          
And I was starting to agree
      E                       B         A        (E)
But I woke up suddenly in the path of a lightning bolt

Link: (E)A B x2


E               B       A         E
Fortune, people talking all about fortune
       B          A            E
Do you make it or does it just call you
       B              A
In the blinking of an eye
      E                       B         A         E
Just another passer by in the path of a lightning bolt

A                            
Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth
           E
But I just stand by and I wait my time
             A                                
They say you gotta toe the line they want the water not the wine
           E               B            A        (E)
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

B|---------------------- x4 -------|


       E             B     A            E
It was silent, I was lying back gazing skyward
         B  A       E
When the moment got shattered
     B                 A
I remembered what she said
    E                    B         A         E
And then she fled in the path of a lightning bolt

Outro: E B A x3 E
