Reinventing Axl Rose 0:02:00 Print

by Against Me! - sung by Lauren

cheat sheet: G Bm C G / C D G / G riff 0:00

GWe want a band that plays loud and hard every Bmnight

That doesn't care how many people are counted at the Cdoor

That would travel one million miles and ask for nothing more than a Gplate of food and a place to rest

They'd strike chords that cut like a knife

It would mean so much Bmmore than t-shirts or a ticket stub

They'd stop at nothing short of a Cmassacre

Everyone would leave with the memory that there was no place Gelse in the world

And this was where they always belonged

We would Cdance like no one was Dwatching

With Gone fist in the air

Our Carena just basements and Dbookstores across an underground America

GWith this fire we could light

With this fire, we could....

RIFF! (see below)

G, Gmaj7, G7, Em7

G, Gmaj7, G7, Em7

GtwGo GthGreGe Gfour!

GJust gimme a scene where the music is free

And the Bmbeer is not the life of the party

There's Cno need to shit talk or impress

'Cause honesty and emotion are Gnot looked down upon

And every promise that's made and bragged

is meant if not Bmkept

We'd do it all because we have to, not because we know Cwhy

Beyond a gender, race, and class, we could find what Greally holds us back

Let's make Ceverybody Dsing

That they are the Gbeginning and ending of everything

C D G (end on that note!)

That we all are stronger than everything they taught us that we should fear

NOTE: The riff! We're playing it where you start with the G shape, and move the E string finger down a fret every two down strums. That's makes it a G, Gmaj7, G7, Em7. Barring the Gmaj7 with the index finger seems to be working out pretty well. Youtube the original for the kind of sound we're going for.
