Down- Mat Kearney
Tabbed by: Iltrivosk
Tuning: Standard EADGBe (Capo 5th)

This is the chord sheet for the rhythm guitar. I realize there's a massively
intricate tab necessary for the lead guitar, but for right now, this is all
I've got. They're pretty basic chords, so just strum them all fully and
listen to the song for the pattern. Comment for any questions or corrections!

Intro: Am  F  C  G6

Verse 1:
Am                       F
It took his breath away, holding the bank page
C                          G6
He got the letter, they're going to take the house away
Am                        F
About to have a daughter, he yells it in the air
C                         G6
Feeling the weight of the world that just don't care
Am                  F
He lit a cigarette, felt it on his lip
C                 G6
Driving home on a long road with regret
Am                        F
He rolls the window down, shouts it out loud
C                     G6                     Am
Pushing the pedal and praying "Lord, help us now"
G6                        G                     (stop)
He's looking for a reason watching the sun going down


Chorus: (strum chords twice each, until "all you see...")
                     Am                   F
Can you hear when we call, there when we fall?
             C                 G
Standing our backs against the wall
           Am            F
Top of our lungs, hallelujah
               C               G
Where pain and love bleed into one
          Am      C          Am
Baby when all you see is darkness
G
Coming down now
Am     C            Am
We all need forgiveness
G
Coming round now
Am       C
(Oh, oh, oh oh...)
G
Coming down now


Verse 2:
Am                   F
It was Monday night, under the street lights
C                    G6
She's turning seventeen in seven nights
Am                      F
Out on the fairgrounds, walking in monotone
C                         G6
She kicks a bottle that's empty as her soul
Am                     F
Out on the road alone, in a house that's half a home
C                      G6                  Am
They give her pills to kill when she feels alone
G6                         G                     (stop)
She's looking for a reason watching the sun going down

Chorus: (same pattern as before)
                     Am                   F
Can you hear when we call, there when we fall?
             C                 G
Standing our backs against the wall
           Am            F
Top of our lungs, hallelujah
               C               G
Where pain and love bleed into one
          Am      C          Am
Baby when all you see is darkness
G
Coming down now
Am     C            Am    G
We all need forgiveness


Bridge:
Em7               F#/Dsus
Take these broken streets
                  Cadd9
Take these broken dreams
                  Em7
Hold my hand like we were walking free
                       Cadd9
Tell me it will change I see it in your face
G        Cadd9             Dsus2
The hope the fear the love the faith


Verse 3:
Am                     F
Iím working late again slaving to make the rent
C                        G6
Iím slanging coffee with dreams heavy as cement
Am                        F
Theyíre coming one by one the face of falling love
C                      G6                  (stop)
I write a song with a prayer as I slide the cup


Chorus:
                     Am                   F
Can you hear when we call, there when we fall?
             C                 G
Standing our backs against the wall
           Am            F
Top of our lungs, hallelujah
               C               G
Where pain and love bleed into one
          Am      C          Am
Baby when all you see is darkness
G
Coming down now
Am     C            Am    G
We all need forgiveness
                     Am                   F
Can you hear when we call, there when we fall?
             C                 G
Standing our backs against the wall
                  Am                   F
At the top of our lungs, how far we've come
               C               G
Where pain and love bleed into one
            Am                 F
All that we need is so bittersweet
              C                 G
The pain that opens our eyes to see
          Am      C           Am
Baby when all you see is darkness
G
Coming down now
Am     C            Am
We all need forgiveness
G
Coming 'round now


Outro:
Am       C
(Oh, oh, oh oh...)
G
It's coming down now
Am       C
(Oh, oh, oh oh...)
G
Coming down now
Am       C    (stop)
(Oh, oh, oh oh...)
It's coming down now
