Boy Sets Fire – Empire Acoustic tab

Hey there, this is my personal acoustic version of Empire by Boysetsfire,
I think it's a great song and it's a shame that there hasn't been any tab
for those of us who like to play and sing at the same time...
so here it is!


I have just tabbed the chord progression, for the number of strokes and the rhythm listen
to the song. It shouldn't be too difficult.


I have put my version on the song on youtube:

Here I am with my empire, I'll bring you to your knees ebb and flow with my desire, cause its all that you've been taught to be verse 1 and 2

1 yeah I'm the bastard son of what's been overcome, and again we plant the seed so place your fork to mouth, eat, consume, be proud of what I let you see cause we've made quite sure you can never leave 2 I speak you throw parades ignore the sense of rage welling up inside Pay no mind to what we do cause we'll sell it all to you in modern luxuries And we've made quite sure you believe you're free verse 3

3 From the cradle to the grave we try not to be saved from what we own For next to nothing spent turn your dollars into cents Fighting for the right to die alone play the chorus progression twice. once you go with "just believe" once with "believe free" (if you want to, you can put "cause you're on your own" in the middle of the two parts b I did in the video, for that, play the chorus progression once more) then play the chorus progression thrice over: it doesn't matter just be sure that this is our empire this is war forgotten heroes chessboard roles to make you think you're something more but you're on your own
e|-0-0-1-0-1-0---------------------------------------------------------------|B|-1-1-1-1-1-1---------------------------------------------------------------|G|-2-2-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------------------------------|D|-3-0-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------------------------------|A|-3---1---1-----------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----1---1-----------------------------------------------------------------|
finish with the chorus if you wish... if there are any questions or corrections, contact me via youtube (link for the video on of the page)... enjoy
