Verse 1: F#m Hauled from the wreckage A Dragged to the side of the road Bm F#m There's a man, standing alone F#m Live by the moonlight A Blown by the wind Bm F#m Nothing there, but the road in front of him Chorus: F#m So tear down the walls F7 Storm through the barricades Bm There's fight in every corner F#m And a night to everyday Verse 2: F#m Drawn here by circumstance A Led here by fate Bm F#m Some kind of misunderstanding, Led the soul astray F#m Went down on his knees A Reached up to the skies Bm F#m Said Lord I followed your way, won't you show me mine Chorus (2x): F#m So tear down the walls F7 Storm through the barricades Bm There's fight in every corner F#m And a night to everyday Solo: F Minor Pentatonic Verse 3: F#m They say at night A You hear him plead Bm F#m With the devil below, for his soul's release Chorus (2x): F#m So tear down the walls F7 Storm through the barricades Bm There's fight in every corner F#m And a night to everyday Solo 2: F Minor Pentatonic That's the bare bones of it. Tips: You must listen to the song to get a feel for the song. The chorus is a choppy part where Davy alternates between downstrokes on the bottom and upstrokes on the top strings. Use chunky distortion to get the right sound. The F7 chord has a little slide in it from the third to the fourth fret during the choruses. In the verses, strum the chords and arpeggiate the top three strings. The verses are played with a delay-type pedal which and slight tremolo effects. For the solos, improvise dramatically. Have fun, this is a great, impressive song. PLEASE CHECK OUT BACK DOOR SLAM! DAVY KNOWLES IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!
