18 Karat Gold  Johnossi

Main pick
Hold these chords:
[D] [A] [Bm] [G] [A]  

And play it in this order:
D A Bm x4
[D]18 k[A]arat g[Bm]old [G]wouldn't fill the hol[A]e
The b[D]leeding ho[A]le in her h[Bm]eart, that[G]'s made from cicumstances at h[A]ome
Because t[D]hey kept p[A]ulling her [Bm]hair, and [G]so it choked her wo[A]rds
S[D]he don't s[A]leep at nig[Bm]ht, a[G]fraid to turn out the l[A]ight
And she's hom[D]e[A] [Bm]
D A Bm x2
[G] [A]  
I thought 1[D]8 ka[A]rat go[Bm]ld would s[G]ave a lonely [A]soul
But [D]she don't [A]sleep at ni[Bm]ght, [G]afraid to turn out the [A]light
Cause th[D]ey kept pu[A]lling her h[Bm]air,[G] wouldn't leave her[A] alone
But if o[D]nly I could r[A]ead her [Bm]mind [G]and release that st[A]one
(Just strum this part, no picking)
In her hea[D]rt where the sadness gr[A]ows,[Em] I'd operate with this [Bm]knife
And cut a [D]big fat giant ho[A]le, to [Em]fill with gold and [Bm]light
But the[F]re's an endless ba[Am]ttle to be [Dm]won
And me [F]I ain't a man with[Am] an educate[Dm]d mind
And soon, y[F]ou won't have the s[Am]trength to carry[Dm] on
 F Am D-A-Bm (<---Pick "D-A-Bm")

So you scream about it in the night.....
(Start to pick again!)
Oh, in the night ...[D] [A] [Bm]
In the night ...[D] [A] [Bm]
Oh, in the night [D]...[A] [Bm] [G] [A]
My 1[D]8 ka[A]rat go[Bm]ld, i[G]t fills a dirty h[A]ole
A dirty [D]bleeding hole i[A]n my h[Bm]eart, you people thi[G]nk it's made from circumstances at h[A]ome
Well if so[D]meone ever should be [A]pulling your [Bm]hair, then I g[G]uess you should leave them a[A]lone
And now you [D]want me to r[A]ead your m[Bm]ind and relea[G]se that ston[A]e
(stop picking and strum!)
That stone in your he[D]art where the sadness g[A]rows. You know I, [Em]I'd operate with this [Bm]knife
And cut a b[D]ig fat f**king h[A]ole, to f[Em]ill with gold and l[Bm]ight
But th[F]ere's an endl[Am]ess battle to be [Dm]won
And me[F] I ain't a ma[Am]n with an educated [Dm]mind
And soon, yo[F]u won't have the s[Am]trength to carry [Dm]on
And so yo[F]u scream [Am]about it in the n[Dm]ight
Ther[F]e's an e[Am]ndless battle to be [Dm]won
And me [F]I ain't a man with an e[Am]ducated m[Dm]ind
[F]You won't have the st[Am]rength to carry on[Dm]
F Am D A Bm (<--Start picking from D)
So you scream about it in the night
Oh, in the night ...[D] [A] [Bm]
In the night ...[D] [A] [Bm]
Oh, in the night [D]...[A] [Bm] [G] [A]
(Pick slow and end...)
Hope its good enought! :)
