Battle Born  The Killers

<i></i>This tab does not have the intro riff, this is simply my interpretation of the song.
 
 Intro: F - C - Bb - C - Dm - F - Gm - Gm - Bb

[F]Lost faith in the [C]human spirit
You [Dm]walk around like a [Bb]ghost
Your star spangled [F]heart
Took a [Gm]train for the [C]coast
[F]When you shine you're a [C]hill top mansion
So [Dm]how'd ya lose the [Bb]light?
Was it blown by the [F]wind?
In the [Gm]still of the [C]night
[Bb]We're up against the wall
[F]Up against the wall[C]
[Bb]There's something dying on [C]the [Dm]street
When they knock you down[F]
[Gm]You're gonna get back on your [C]feet
[Bb](But you can't stop now)
[F]I always saw you as [C]a kind of keeper
[Dm]Mother to a child[Bb]
But your boys have grown [F]soft
[Gm]And your girls have gone [C]wild
[F] [C]  
[Dm]To the redwood sky[Bb]
The season may pass[F]
But the [Gm]dream doesn't [C]die
[Bb]Why did you drop the ball?
[F]Up against the wall[C]
[Bb]There's something dying on [C]the [Dm]street
When they knock you down[F]
[Gm]You're gonna get back on your [C]feet
[Bb](But you can't stop now)
[F]Did they break your heart[C]
[Bb]And did they cause your sou[C]l to [Dm]mourn
Remember what I [F]said
[Gm]Boy you was battle [Bb]born
[Bb](But you can't stop now)
[Gm] [-] [Bb] [-] [Dm] [-] [F]  
You was Battle Born
[Gm]When the night falls on the [Bb]land
Are you haunted by the [Dm]sound?[F]
[Gm]It's gonna take more than a [Bb]hand
To turn this thing [Dm]around
Won't you lean it on me?
[C]Rescue, set me free!
[F]Up against the wall[C]
(Up against the wall)
[Bb]There's something dying on [C]the [Dm]street
When they knock you down[F]
[Gm]You're gonna get back on your feet
[Bb](But you can't stop now)
[F]Did they break your heart[C]
[Bb]And did they cause your sou[C]l to [Dm]mourn
Remember what I [F]said
[Gm]Boy you was battle [Bb]born
[Bb](But you can't stop now)
[F]Come on show your [C]face
[Bb]Come on give us one more [C]spark[Dm]
We'll sing a song of fire[F]
[Gm]Lost we fall into the dark
[Bb](No, you can't stop now)
[F]You never know
If you never learn[C]
[Bb]You never shine
If you never burn[C]
[Dm]The rising tide
The undertow[F]
[Gm]The venom and
The overflow
[Bb]You turn away
Welcome home[F].
