Good Day to Die  Travis

Travis - Good Day To Die
From "Good Feeling", Written by Fran Healy & co.
No capo (*gasp*).
Intro: Various noise, then D7 into...
First verse:
[G] [D] [Em] [B]  
where is your mother, where is your father,
[G] [D] [Em] [B]  
two little children, locked in a cupboard.
[G] [D] [Em] [B]  
Into the wide world, high on the high wire,
G D Em D7 C, D7
What would you give to fly away, away, away, away, awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay?
Same chord progression for the second verse:
Girl with the flower, boy with the hammer,
Lost in a forest, on another planet.
Find me the exit, find me the way home,
Find all the love they took away, away, away, away, away.
Chorus (coming off of D7):
[Em] [D]  
Cos your head, is a brick wall,
[C] [D]  
And your heart, is a football
[Em] [D]  
And your eyes, broken windows,
[C] [D] [C]  
when you cry, it's a good day to die.
Solo (well-tabbed on other GDTD tabs), the chords are similar to the verse,
with a bit of a change:
By measure:
G, D, Em, B
G, D, Em, Em
G, D, Em, B
G, D, Em, Em
Then, D7 back into the chorus chords.
Once through the chorus normally, but instead of playing the last C transcribed above
go right back into the Em to begin the next time through the chorus. Then...
[Em] [D]  
Cos your head, is a brick wall,
[C] [D]  
And your heart, is a football
[Em] [D]  
And your eyes (?), it's a good day...
Am, Em, Cadd9
Today...
Am, Em, Cadd9
Today...
Am, Em, Cadd9
Today.......today......today.....
The outro seems to be messing back and forth with a C and a Cadd9.
Enjoy! Hope this works better than the others.
