21 Guns tab ver. 4 with lyrics by Green Day - Easy chords and tabs for guitar

Green Day – 21 Guns tab ver. 4

This is how I play this song. It's my first tab, so it may have some mistakes, but 
I'll try to fix them if they will appear. I can also write strange this text, 
'cause I'm not English and I'm not sure how to do that.
Thanks to necriononguitar for the solo.

Guitar 1 - Acoustic
Guitar 2 - Electric Lead
Guitar 3 - Electric Rythm

Guitar 1 can play as the Rythm guitar playing Guitar 3 in Choruses and Bridge, but 
it sounds better when rythm guitar is electric not acoustic.
Backing track in Verses (Intros) can be played by Guitar 2, 3 or both, however you 
want.
!NOTE!: Backing track played in Verses has got one more note at the end, when it's 
played A# and the text is "You're in ruins", but I don't know what's this note. 
It's need if you want to play all of the song with no missings, but this note is 
quite hard to hear, so you can just miss it (read: forget that it should be note there).

Tuning: Standard eBGDAE

/ - slide up
\ - slide down
< - advocacy (look down for instructions)
^ - hit strings from up
v - hit strings from down

Intro

To do that like in song you have to turn Volume to 0. Then pick strings and slowly 
turn Volume up, and later turn down to pick another strings. When you play the 
last bar, don't turn down Volume, let it ring to the Verse.

And this is all of the song. If you have any problems, text it in comment. Lirycs Verse 1: Do you know what's worth fighting for? When it's not worth dying for? Does it take your breath away? And you feel yourself suffocating? Does the pain weigh out the pride? And you look for place to hide? Did someone break your heart inside? You're in ruins... Chorus 1: One, 21 guns Lay down your arms Give up the fight One, 21 guns Throw up your arms into the sky You and I Verse 2: When you're at the end of the road And you lost all sense of control And your thoughts have taken their toll When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul Your faith walks on broken glass And the hangover doesn't pass Nothing's ever built to last You're in ruins... Chorus 2: One, 21 guns Lay down your arms Give up the fight One, 21 guns Throw up your arms into the sky You and I Bridge: Did you try to live on your own? When you burned down the house and home? Did you stand too close to the fire? Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone Verse 3: When it's time to live and let die And you can't get another try Something inside this heart has died You're in ruins... Chorus 3: One, 21 guns Lay down your arms Give up the fight One, 21 guns Throw up your arms into the sky One, 21 guns Lay down your arms Give up the fight One, 21 guns Throw up your arms into the sky You and I
