You only hear the bass in the verses but I'll show the chords with the lyrics in case of... Bm
D G F#mTime it took us
Bm DTo where the water was
G F#m BmThat's what the water gave me
D G F#mAnd time goes quicker
Bm DBetween the two of us
G F#m BmOh, my love, don't forsake me
D EmTake what the water gave me
Chorus: (You still pretty much only hear the bass but I usually play power-chords when the drums fade in)
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em BmBe the overflow
D APockets full of stones
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em Bm D F#mBe the ooooverflow
End Riff:Shred these notes:E-----21--21\---|B--/20--20------|G---------------|D---------------|A---------------|E---------------|
Verse 2: (The same as the 1st with the riff and all) Bm
D G F#mAnd oh poor Atlas
Bm DThe world's a beast of a burden
G F#m BmYou've been holding on a long time
D G F#mAnd all this longing
Bm DAnd the ships are left to rust
G F#m EmThat's what the water gave us
Chorus:
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em BmBe the overflow
D APockets full of stones
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em Bm D F#mBe the ooooverflow
Bridge: (First 2 are open chords then it's switched to power chords with PM)
Em'Cause they took your loved ones
BmBut returned them in exchange for you
G ABut would you have it any other way?
Em GWould you have it any other way?
A EmYou could have had it any other way
Verse 3: (Instead of the usual guitar riff there are quiet PMd chords) Bm
D G F#m'Cause she's a crueller mistress
Bm DAnd the bargain must be made
G F#m BmBut oh, my love, don't forget me
D G F#m EmBut I let the water take me
Chorus: (Still with the bass, maybe a couple of slides and notice the change at the last line!!!)
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em BmBe the overflow
D APockets full of stones
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
Em Bm G ABe the ooooverflow
Chorus: (This time with a change)
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
G BmBe the overflow
D APockets full of stones
Em BmLay me down
D ALet the only sound
G Bm D DBe the ooooverflow
Then just continue with the regular Chorus chords until it fades out…
