Never Let Me Down
	(words & music by Martin L. Gore)


Before I transcribe this I have to acknowledge VIKTOR HOLUBEK (email:
holubek@managr.fm.uniba.sk).  I figured out the keyboard configuration from
his chord progressions right here at the same site.  All I am just doing is
adding on to his input.

The intro is:

  G riff

E -3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||B --------------------------||G --------------------------||D --------------------------||A --------------------------||E --------------------------||
The Riff 1 chords and lines are: Dm C F D#
E ---------1---|---------1---|-------------|----------------|B --3--1-3---3-|--3--1-3-----|---------1---|----------------|G -------------|-----------2-|--2--0-2---2-|--2--2--0-2-0---|D -------------|-------------|-------------|--------------3-|A -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|E -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|
The Riff 2 chords (featured at the end of the chorus and mostly at the end of the verse when the song goes into the Cm, Bb, Gm, F progression): Dm C G riff
E ---------------|--8--6-8-----|-3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||B --3--1-3--3-1--|----------8--|--------------------------||G ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||D ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||A ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||E ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||
For the chorus (the Cm part), the keyboard plays: Cm Bb Gm F
E -----8-----8-----|-----6-----6-----|-----------------|-----------3---3-||B ---8---8-----8---|---6---6-----6---|-----8-----8-----|-----6---6---6---||G -5-------5-----5-|-3-------3-----3-|---7---7-----7---|---5---5---------||D -----------------|-----------------|-5-------5-----5-|-3---------------||A -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||E -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
Those are basically all the keyboard lines. The lyrics are: Dm C G riff I~m taking a ride with my best friend Dm C G riff I hope he never lets me down again Dm C He knows where he~s taking me Gm Bb Taking me where I want to be Dm C G riff I~m taking a ride with my best friend Riff 2: Dm C G riff Cm Bb We~re flying high Gm F We~re watching the world pass us by Cm Bb Never want to come down Gm F Never want to put my feet back down on the ground Riff 1: Dm C F D# Dm C G riff I~m taking a ride with my best friend Dm C G riff I hope he never lets me down again Dm C Promises me I~m as safe as houses Gm Bb As long as I remember who~s wearing the trousers Dm C G riff I hope he never lets me down again Riff 2: Dm C G riff Cm Bb We~re flying high Gm F We~re watching the world pass us by Cm Bb Never want to come down Gm F Never want to put my feet back down on the ground Dm C A Gm Dm C A Gm Dm C Never let me down A Gm Never let me down Dm C Never let me down A Gm Never let me down Dm C See the stars they~re shining bright A Gm Everything is alright tonight... For playing guitar, I highly suggest you to play the ending chords in this manner, as it does add gloom to the song: Dm C A Gm
E -5--|-x--|-5--|-6--|B -6--|-5--|-5--|-8--|G -7--|-5--|-6--|-7--|D -7--|-5--|-7--|-5--|A -5--|-3--|-7--|----|E ----|----|-5--|----|
And that is it.
