Rise Against - Swing Life Away tab

This tab is 100% accurate to the way Tim McIlrath plays it. I might be a little off on 
the number of strums but that is it. I spent several hours watching live videos to make 
sure everything was right. Please enjoy.

This is the intro which I'm sure you've seen just about everywhere.

|-------------------------------------|
|-0-------------3--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-|
|---0----2-0----0--0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-| x3
|-----0------4--0--0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-|
|---------------3--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-|
|-0------3----------------------------|

on the third time finish off with this chord

|--------------------------|
|-3--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3--|
|-2--2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--|
|-0--0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0--|

now for the verse you'll play this

|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------5-5--5-5--5-5--5--| x3
|--2--2-2--2-5--5-5--5-5-5--5-5--5-5--5--|
|--2--2-2--2-5--5-5--5-3-3--3-3--3-3--3--|
|--0--0-0--0-3--3-3--3-------------------|

on the third time you finish with this chord

|---------------------------|
|--3--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3--|
|--x--x-x-x-x-x--x-x-x-x-x--|
|--4--4-4-4-4-4--4-4-4-4-4--|
|--5--5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5--|
|---------------------------|

You play that verse and finishing chord bit twice. On the second time the finishing 
chord is played a little longer than the first time.


now for the chorus.

|-----------------------------------------------|
|-0---8-7-8--------------3--3-3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-|

|------------8--8-8-8-8-------------------------|


 x2 (you hang on that last chord a little longer the second time through)


you play the verse again

the chorus the second time is a little bit different. You just hang on the final chord a 
bit longer than normal the second time through and it transitions right into the solo. 
Listen to the track and you'll get what I mean.


and now the best part. The solo

then the chorus again

finally the outro

|--2--2-2--2-5--5-5--5-5-5--5-5--5-5--5--|

|--0--0-0--0-3--3-3--3-------------------|

the fourth time through you hang on the final chord a bit longer than normal.

and this little outro bit finishes off the song
