Queensryche - Bridge tab

Song:	Bridge
Artist:	Queensryche

By: Steven Smigiel

I put stuff out there for a guy playing solo acoustic guitar. 
I like open chords for the bass & resonation. Iíll always give 
the lyrics and enough tab to get you going. Iím sure all the chords
have more technical names but when Iím playing I use this for a 
reference. -Steve

I tune to standard 440 but one fret lower. So E is Eb etc.
E A D G B E

The * is just sliding your finger down a fret for the bass 
line note then back to the chord shape

The Bm** is another chord where you pull off 
and on with the pinky. This repeats continuously 
through the verses.

[Bm intro*] You called me up on the phone today
Struggling with the right words to say
Time can change a thing or two
Time has changed the lives of me and you
But you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] 
it could have been [Bm] different dad

[Bm**] The word brings back a sweet memory
Iím sitting on a bluff on a broken tree
By my side a distinguished man 
Giving me encouragement, telling me I can 
And you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G]
Youíre not there

[D] You say Son letís forget the past
I want another chance, gonna make it last
Youíre begging me for a brand new start 
Trying to mend a bridge thatís been blown apart, 
But you know [C][C*][C] [G][G*][G] 
You never [Bm] built it dad

(a nice slide down the E string into the chord works well here)

[Em] And so I sit here through the [F#m] night, 
And I write myself to [G] sleep, 
And time keeps ticking [Bm][Bm**][Bm] [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] 
[Bm][Bm**][Bm] [G][G*][G] [F#] [Bm][Bm**][Bm]

[Bm**] Time has made you finally realize 
Your loneliness and your guilt inside
Youíre reaching for something you never had
Turning around now youíre looking back
And you know [A][A*][A] [G][G*][G] Iím not there

[D] You say ďSon, letís forget the past
I want another chance, gonna make it lastĒ
Youíre begging me for a brand new start, 
Trying to mend a bridge thatís been blown apart, 
But you know [C][C*][C] [G][G*][G] 

You never [B] built it dad.
You never [A] built it dad.
You never [G] built it dad.
You never [F#] built it dad.
You never [Em] built it dad. [Bm]


--This reminds me of Catís in the Cradle by Harry Chapin. 
If you listen to it youíll se what Iím getting at. Good luck. Peace.
