Verse:


[Em]  Running d[C]own around the t[G]own's along the s[D]hore
[Em]I was [C]sixteen and on my [G]own      [D]
[Em]Though I couldn't [C]tell you what the [G]hell those brakes were [D]for
[Em]I was just [C]trying to hear my [G]song    [D]
[Em]Jimmy found his [C]own sweet sound, [G]when he won that free [D]guitar
[Em]We'd all [C]get in the van and [G]play         [D]
[Em]Life became the [C]paradox, the [G]bear, the rouge et [D]noir
[Em]And a stretch of [C]road running to [G]L.A         [D]
Pre-Chorus:

[Em]Pages [C]turning, [G]pages we were [D]years from learning
[Em]Straight into the [C]night our hearts were[G] flung      [D]

Chorus:


Better [C]bring your own [G]redemption [D]when you come [C]          [G]    [D]
To the [C]barricades of [G]heaven [D]where I'm from[C]
Verse:

[Em]All    [C]    the world was [G]shining from those [D]hills
The [Em]stars [C]above and the lights [G]below      [D]
[Em]Among those [C]there to test their [G]fortunes and their [D]wills
[Em]I lost [C]track of the score long [G]ago      [D]

Pre-Chorus:

[Em]Pages [C]turning, [G]pages we were [D]years from learning
[Em]Straight into the [C]night our hearts were[G] flung      [D]

Chorus:


Better [C]bring your own [G]redemption [D]when you come [C]          [G]    [D]
To the [C]barricades of [G]heaven [D]where I'm from[C]
Bridge:


[Em]Childhood [F]comes for me at [C]night
[Em]Voices [F]of my [C]friends
[Em]Your face [F]bathing [C]me in light
[Em]Hope that [F]never [C]ends
Little Musical Interlude:

same chords as verse. good section for a bit of the ol' improvised solo. the key
being G major (or E minor). Blues scale is always good, or any that you feel work


Pre-Chorus:

[Em]Pages [C]turning, [G]pages we were [D]years from learning
[Em]Straight into the [C]night our hearts were[G] flung      [D]

Chorus:


Better [C]bring your own [G]redemption [D]when you come [C]          [G]    [D]
To the [C]barricades of [G]heaven [D]where I'm from[C]
Better [C]bring your own [G]redemption [D]when you come [C]          [G]    [D]
To the [C]barricades of [G]heaven [D]where I'm from[C]
