Killers - Bling Confession Of A King tab

			     The Killers – “Bling (Confession of a King)”
Tabbed by: Aaron Fritschner

I saw my favorite Killers tune doesn’t appear to be out there yet, 
so I jotted it down.

Tuning: Standard

Coming out of “When You Were Young” we are in F# for a moment with the synth,
Then it shifts up to Bm.

First part- you’ll have to listen to the record to get the timing right. Flowers
plays this little fill on the keys that you can hear, for instance, right 
after the word “survival,” which is doubled by the electric guitar.

After the last one, right before “How do you know”
“That you’re right” (Strum) Bm A G That’s the intro Lyrics are: When I offer you survival You say it’s hard enough to live It’s not so bad, It’s not so bad How do you know that you’re right? From this point on there are two guitars in the mix, one acoustic and one electric, With the acoustic playing the basic chords and the electric fiddling around with The same chords farther up the neck. Chords are Bm I work on the roadside G In the land of the free ride E I can’t hold it any longer Bm The sun is beating down my neck So I ran with the devil Left a trail of excuses Like a stone on the water The elements decide my fate Pre-chorus: G A Watch it go… (Bling) Chorus base chords are D F#m When I offer you survival G You say it’s hard enough to live A F#m Don’t tell me that it’s over G Stand up, poor and tired But more than this A F#m How do you know that you’re right G If you’re not nervous anymore? A F#m G It’s not so bad, it’s not so bad Lead on the chorus is the fun part, played 4 times
Back to verse: I feel my vision slipping out of focus But I’m pushing on for that horizon I’m pushing on Now I’ve got that blowin’ wind against my face So you sling rocks at the riptide Am I wrong or am I right? I hit the bottom with a hook- quite strange I get my glory in the desert rain Watch it go.. (when I offer you survival) Bling Chorus: When I offer you survival You say it’s hard enough to live I’ll tell you when it’s over Shut up- poor and tired but More than this How do you know that you’re right If you’re not nervous anymore? It’s not so bad, it’s not so bad Ending bit: D Higher and higher, we’re gonna take it Down to the wire, we’re gonna make it G A Bm F#m Out of the fire G A Higher and higher D Higher and higher, we’re gonna take it Down to the wire, we’re gonna make it G A Bm F#m Out of the fire G A Higher and higher D Higher and higher, we’re gonna take it Gmaj7 Down to the wire, we’re gonna make it G A Bm F#m Out whoa oh oh G A D Higher and Higher Strum distorted D G A Bm It ain’t hard to hold F#m G When it shines like gold A D You’ll remember me Finis. | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
