You s[B]ay you want a revolution   well you k[E]now
We all want to change the wo[B]rld
You t[B]ell me that it's evolution  well you k[E]now
We all want to change the w[F#]orld
[C#m]But when you talk about des[F#]truction
[C#m]Don't you know that you can co[A]unt [B]me [G#]out ([F#]in?)
Don't you know it's gonna [B]be   Alr[E]ight
Don't you know it's gonna [B]be   Alr[E]ight
Don't you know it's gonna [B]be   Alr[E]ight[F#7]

Guitar 2 plays this figure during the "chorus":
                 [B]              [E]                                                  
-|-------------------------------------------------------11--------------
-|-------------------4----4---------------------------9--12--12-----12---

.. repeated a few times, and then the following turnaround:
    [F#7]

-|-------------2----------4----------2-----------------------
-|--------2h4--------2h4--------2h4-------------2------------
-|--2--2----------2----------2----------2--2h4---------------

Now, over the A B G# chords in the last verse, the lead guitar
plays a screaming figure based on this:
-|-----------14----
-|--14b(16)--------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------

And over the B & E chords the final time around, the lead guitar
is rapidly picking in rhythm with the words:
-|--9--------------
-|--12b(14)--------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------
-|-----------------

.. up until the climactic end.
