Terry’s Song
Ok ive tried this out like 100 times and i think it's pretty damn close. The chords
with the /'s indicate the main chord to play but with an alternate bass note,
i.e. Em/F# is em played one stroke with a F# bass note. I will say i'm not sure
if some of the G/F#'s should maybe be D/F#'s try it and see what you think.
I put the chords in from start to finish cos the changes can catch you unawares. It's
an awesome tune by an artist i'm just begining to appreciate.
any suggestions to improve upon this please let me know....
Terry's Song
[G] [C] 
Well they built the Titanic to be one of a kind, but many ships have ruled
the [G]seas
They [G]built the [G/F#]Eiffel Tower to s[Em]tand alone,[D] but they could build a[C]nother if
they [D]please
[G]Taj Mahal, the pyramids of Egypt, are un[C]ique I s[G]uppose
[G]But when they [G/F#]built you, [Em]brother, [D]they broke the [G]mold
[G]Now the world is filled with many wonders u[C]nder the passing [G]sun
And [G]sometimes [G/F#]something c[Em]omes [D]along and you k[C]now it's for sure the only [D]one
The Mona [G]Lisa, the David, the Sistine Chapel, [C]Jesus, Mary, and [G]Joe
And [G]when they b[G/F#]uilt you, [Em]brother,[D] they broke the [G]mold
( Tab from: )
[C]When they built you[G], brother, the[C]y turned dust int[G]o gold
[G]When they buil[G/F#]t you, brot[Em]her, they[D] broke the mold[G]
[Em]They say you can't take it with you, but [Em]I think t[Em/F#]hat they're [G]wrong
'Cause [C]all I know is I woke up this morning, and something big was [D]gone
[G]Gone into that dark ether where you're still y[C]oung and hard and c[G]old
Just like [G]when they [G/F#]built you, [Em]brother, they [D]broke the [G]mold

(Verse chords)
[G]Now your death is upon us and we'll [C]return your ashes to the [G]earth
A[G]nd I know [G/F#]you'll take comfo[Em]rt in knowi[D]ng you've been rou[C]ndly blessed an[D]d cursed
But [G]love is a power greater than death, just like the [C]songs and stories [G]told
[G]And when she b[G/F#]uilt you, b[Em]rother, s[D]he broke the mo[G]ld
C Em Em/f# G
That attitude's a power stronger than death, alive and burning her stone cold
[G]When they [G/F#]built you, [Em]brother[D] [G]
