Surrender

Surrender – The Dropkick Murphys

I did the chords for this song a while back and I’ve yet to figure out the intro
and fill, so i’ll give you guys this.

i tried my best with positioning the chord names over where they are to be played,
but i’m sure everyone will get the point.

the way i pick the lead guitar is: (for Bb to F to Ab)


|-----------------x---x--x--x-----x-
|-x---x--x--x-----x---x--x--x-----x- basically pick the-
|-x---x--x--x-----x---x--x--x-----x- -higher half of the chord,
|-x------------x--x------------x--x- then the lower half once,
|-x------------x--x------------x---- then the entire next chord.
|-----------------x------------x----

Intro:


Bb--F--Ab--Eb
Bb--F--Ab--Eb--Bb

[Bb]I was at my weakest [F]state
[F]And you kept pushing me [Ab]on
[Ab]You gave me something to believe [Eb]in
[Eb]And it keeps me standing [Bb]strong
[Bb]These lessons that I’ve [F]learned
[F]These things I’ll carry [Ab]on
[Ab]And when you’re gone I’ll honor [Eb]you
[Eb]Each day, however [Eb]long

[Bb]This glimmer of hope was never enough
[F]To guide me through the darkness like a diamond in the rough
[Ab]I held out for and I received
[Eb]A pain that never left with no reprieve
[Bb]Like a toast at a table where resentments run free
[F]There can’t be any truth where there’s no honest[Ab]y[Eb]

[Bb]Like an apple from the [F]tree
[F]you were lock jawed in your [Ab]ways
[Ab]A reminder of my[Eb]self in those long forgotten days
[Bb]Thought you’d stayed off my [F]path
[F]But I just couldn’t [Ab]see that the blood that’s in your [Eb]veins
[Eb]Is the same that runs through me

[Bb]This glimmer of hope was never enough
[F]To guide me through the darkness like a diamond in the rough
[Ab]I held out for and I received
[Eb]A pain that never left with no reprieve
[Bb]Like a toast at a table where resentments run free
There [F]can’t be any truth where there’s no honest[Ab]y[Eb][F]

I had it [Ab]all but lost my f[Eb]aith
And then you l[Bb]ead me to it[F]
[Ab]Today I’ll carry [Eb]on[F]
[Ab]I had it all but lost my [Eb]faith
And now [Bb]I’ve renewed it[F]
These [Ab]things I’ll carry on[Eb]

[Bb]This glimmer of hope was never enough

[F]There can’t be any truth where there’s no honest[Ab]y[Eb][F]

And then you l[Bb]ead me to it[F]

And now [Bb]I’ve renewed it[F]
