Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule tab

From: Marc Virata 

This is one in a list of Tears For Fears chords that was sent to me by 
Keith , who took the time out to figure them
out.  I figured I'll go ahead and post/archive them if anyone's
interested.  I made a tiny suggestion and came up with a mock solo on
this one.


Everybody Wants to Rule the World

transcribed by Keith 
 
Intro: 4 times |A/D G/D- -| |
        A/D G/D

(Keith suggests tuning the E bass string down to a 'D' to get the bass
rhythm to the song)

(I like to use (xx022x) for A/D and (xx000x) for G/D)

 
                   A/D G/D                     A/D G/D
Welcome to your life,      there's no turning back,
                   A/D G/D
Even while we sleep,        we will find you
Em             F#m
Acting on your best behavior
G                 F#m
Turn your back on mother nature,
Em   F#m   G        A        A/D   G/D     Ab G/D
Everybody wants to rule the world
 
It's my own design, it's my own remorse,
Help me to decide, help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure,
Nothing ever lasts forever,
Em   F#m   G       A        G
Everybody wants to rule the world
 
                         D           A
There's a room where the light won't find you
G                        D         A        G
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
                       D      A
When they do, I'll be right behind you
 
Em            F#m
So glad we've almost made it
G           F#m
So sad they had to fade it
Em   F#m   G       A         D     G|D A|G   |D A|
Everybody wants to rule the world

I was just cruising by this section and I saw this song by Tears which I've been playing on guitar for a few years. I checked out the chords and I'm sure you'll be happy to know that they're a little different than previously posted (at least the key is right!) Wherever it is written E minor, the band actually plays Emin9 (a much richer sounding chord). Also, the G in those verses are actually Gmaj7. Finally, the A which follows the G (actually Gmaj7) is really an A6, which is not surprising since the opening riff of the song is a sixth arpeggio over the A. No need to tune down either, since the bass string is played open on the Eminor9
