Cross My Heart  The Rocket Summer

The Rocket Summer - Cross My Heart .written by Bryce Avery
Tabbed By Paul Welsford
This is a very unusual song. FLippin amazing, but also strange.
there is no real chorus or bridge. there is just a load of different sections mised around a bit.
This is my much simplified version for just one guitar to play along with.
but i will be writing up a more accurate version for 2 guitars very soon.
most of these are basic chords so you shouldnt have to much of a problem.

C Am A G Em D Dsus4 D7 C/B G/B c/E D/F# Cadd9 Cadd9/A
i've left the rhythm up to you, better that way than typing something up which you might not want to play.
but i have tried to put the chords in the right places to the lyrics.
