Bling (Confession of a King)  The Killers

 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Killers ‚?? ‚??Bling (Confession of a King)‚??
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw my favorite Killers tune doesn‚??t appear to be out there yet,
so I jotted it down.
Tuning: Standard
Coming out of ‚??When You Were Young‚?? we are in F# for a moment with the synth,
Then it shifts up to Bm.
First part- you‚??ll have to listen to the record to get the timing right. Flowers
plays this little fill on the keys that you can hear, for instance, right
after the word ‚??survival,‚?? which is doubled by the electric guitar.
 
 e|--------------------------------|
 B|--+12---10----------------------|
 G|---------7‚??--7-ring-------------|
 D|-------------9------------------|
 A|--------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------|

After the last one, right before ‚??How do you know‚??
 
 e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|----------------------------5-ring-----------------------------------------|
 G|---7--6‚??4-(piano)--------7-------------------------------------------------|
 D|------------------------7--------------------------------------------------|
 A|------------------------7--------------------------------------------------|
 E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

‚??That you‚??re right‚??
(Strum) Bm A G
That‚??s the intro
Lyrics are:
When I offer you survival
You say it‚??s hard enough to live
It‚??s not so bad, It‚??s not so bad
How do you know that you‚??re right?
With the acoustic playing the basic chords and the electric fiddling around with
The same chords farther up the neck.
Chords are
[Bm]I work on the roadside
In the [G]land of the free ride
I can‚??[E]t hold it any longer
The [Bm]sun is beating down my neck
So I ran with the devil
Left a trail of excuses
Like a stone on the water
The elements decide my fate
Pre-chorus:
Watch it [G]go‚?[A]¶ (Bling)
Chorus base chords are
[D]When I offer you [F#m]survival
[G]You say it‚??s hard enough to live
[A]Don‚??t tell m[F#m]e that it‚??s over
Stand [G]up, poor and tired
But more than this
[A]How do you know [F#m]that you‚??re right
If you‚??re no[G]t nervous anymore?
[A]It‚??s not s[F#m]o bad, it‚??s not[G] so bad
Lead on the chorus is the fun part, played 4 times

Back to verse:
I feel my vision slipping out of focus
But I‚??m pushing on for that horizon
I‚??m pushing on
Now I‚??ve got that blowin‚?? wind against my face
So you sling rocks at the riptide
Am I wrong or am I right?
I hit the bottom with a hook- quite strange
I get my glory in the desert rain
Watch it go.. (when I offer you survival) Bling
Chorus:
When I offer you survival
You say it‚??s hard enough to live
I‚??ll tell you when it‚??s over
Shut up- poor and tired but
More than this
How do you know that you‚??re right
If you‚??re not nervous anymore?
It‚??s not so bad, it‚??s not so bad
Ending bit:
[D]Higher and higher, we‚??re gonna take it
Down to the wire, we‚??re gonna make it
[G]Out of the [A]fi[Bm]re[F#m]
[G]Higher and [A]higher
[D]Higher and higher, we‚??re gonna take it
Down to the wire, we‚??re gonna make it
[G]Out of the [A]fi[Bm]re[F#m]
[G]Higher and [A]higher
[D]Higher and higher, we‚??re gonna take it
[Gmaj7]Down to the wire, we‚??re gonna make it
[G]Out [A]whoa [Bm]oh [F#m]oh
[G]Higher and [A]High[D]er
Strum distorted D
[G]It ain‚??[A]t hard t[Bm]o hold
When it [F#m]shines like [G]gold
You‚??ll [A]remembe[D]r me
Finis.
