Under the Bridge

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Intro F A F G A

 Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner, sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in the City of Angels, lonely as I am, together we cry    

drive on her streets 'cause she's my companion, I walk through her hills 'cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and she kisses me windy. I never worried, now that is a lie. 

 I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
 Take me to the place I love, take me all the way...                        

It's hard to believe there's nobody out there, it's hard to believe that I'm all alone
At least I have her love the city she loves me, lonely as I am, together we cry   

Chorus, then additional voices sing:

Under the bridge downtown, is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown, I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown, forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown, I gave my life away

Sounds pretty good with proper strumming, thanks :)

The 3rd chord in the vers is wrong, should be Am not Abm (in original key E). Think the confusion might have been that every other round they take a quick Abm before the land at Am, but its the Am that is important. /A

It sounds like the Em should be an "F" chord
dead sailor (report comment to admin):

OK I've played it and replaced the Em with a regular ol G and it sounds perfect!!! Seriously try it!

if you play the intro in c, then it will change the key to E. It is slightly easier.  Play the E barred 7th position.

This is missing a couple of chords. check this for the right chords http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fhem.passagen.se%2Fsurftore%2Ftext%2Flyrics%2Fred_hot_chili_peppers%2Funder_the_bridge_pro.txt&songbook=source&transpose=0

This is in the wrong key.  The intro is in C,i think G, and E(arpeg'd of course).  Then verse E, B, C#M, A, B... Then E, B, C#M, A ... repeat. Then play one G#M strum to transition to chorus.  I play everything barred, excet the E (which I switch up and play open quite a bit).  Great song.  One of my favs.

I think that as an acoustic chord version you've got this nicely right. I'm a simple guitarist but it makes me sound good. I don't think this is meant to be played along side the Peppers actual recording.
