How To Play

INTRO
Dm  C  Bb  Em  E/G#  Am
 
VERSE 1
Am                                Dm    C
Your life stepped lightly out our hands
     Bb               C                 F  Em E/G# Am
When no one's looking out you understand
                                             Dm    C
Your world was a wheel but the cog ceased to turn
    Bb                      F/A         Gm7      C
The bottom fell out and our fingers got burned
 
CHORUS
 
    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
 
Em E/G#  Am
 
VERSE 2
 
Am                               Dm   C
Every new version of the way of life
           Bb                         C                 F  Em E/G# Am
Leaves you reckless and searching for stars in the night
Am                                        Dm   C
But whose kid are you when they finally decide
    Bb                     F/A             Gm7  C
The lifestyle you led and the way that you died
 
 
CHORUS
 
    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
 
 
VERSE 3
 
F                 Dm  F    Bb                       Bb7
But they're oh so simple, they're still trying to tell
     G/B                       C          F   Em E/G#
The difference for you between heaven and hell
Am                         Dm            Dm/C
To glorify something, your legends are found
G/B                           C           C/Bb   C/A  Em E/G#  Am
But all they bought you was a hole in the ground
 
 
VERSE 4
 
Am                           Dm   C
Years rolling by just like a dream (ooh)
Bb                       C         F     Em E/G# Am
I'm partly human and I'm partly machine
                                               Dm   C
They've lost you and fate put your name on a stone (ahh)
   Bb                            F/A            Gm7  C
Perhaps now my friend they might leave you alone (ahh)
 
 
CHORUS
 
    A7/C#     Bb7                   Bb7/C Dm7                Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
          Bb7                  Bb7/C  Dm7             Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
        Gm7               Gm7/C#  Am7       Dm  Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
       F                            Bb             F/A  Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
 
OUTRO
 
Em E/G#  Am
