Tears for Fears

Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule guitar chord

#

From: Marc Virata

This is one in a list of Tears For Fears chords that was sent to me by

Keith , who took the time out to figure them

out.  I figured I'll go ahead and post/archive them if anyone's

interested.  I made a tiny suggestion and came up with a mock solo on

this one.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World

transcribed by Keith

Intro: 4 times |A/D G/D- -| |

        A/D G/D

(Keith suggests tuning the E bass string down to a 'D' to get the bass

rhythm to the song)

(I like to use (xx022x) for A/D and (xx000x) for G/D)

                   A/D G/D                     A/D G/D

Welcome to your life,      there's no turning back,

                   A/D G/D

Even while we sleep,        we will find you

Em             F#m

Acting on your best behavior

G                 F#m

Turn your back on mother nature,

Em   F#m   G        A        A/D   G/D     Ab G/D

Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design, it's my own remorse,

Help me to decide, help me make the most

Of freedom and of pleasure,

Nothing ever lasts forever,

Em   F#m   G       A        G

Everybody wants to rule the world

                         D           A

There's a room where the light won't find you

G                        D         A        G

Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down

                       D      A

When they do, I'll be right behind you

Em            F#m

So glad we've almost made it

G           F#m

So sad they had to fade it

Em   F#m   G       A         D     G|D A|G   |D A|

Everybody wants to rule the world

                                    

Pseudotab Solo:

e-----10-9-7---------------|                           |          |

B--10--------10-7-8-10-----| (repeat 3x) then end with |          |

G----------------------7---|                           |          |

D--------------------------|                           | D--9-7-- |

              

I can't stand this indecision

Married with a lack of vision

Em   F#m   G       A        D     A

Everybody wants to rule the world

Instrumental bit: |Bm   |C   |Bm   |C   |G   |A   |A/D G/D| |A/D G/D|  |

Say that you'll never, never, never, never need it.

One headline, why believe it?

Everybody wants to rule the world.

All for freedom and for pleasure,

nothing ever lasts forever,

Everybody wants to rule the world

Outro: |A/D G/D  |   | repeat and fade

I was just cruising by this section and I saw this song by Tears which

I've been playing on guitar for a few years.  I checked out the chords

and I'm sure you'll be happy to know that they're a little different

than previously posted (at least the key is right!)

Wherever it is written E minor, the band actually plays Emin9 (a much

richer sounding chord).  Also, the G in those verses are actually

Gmaj7.  Finally, the A which follows the G (actually Gmaj7) is really

an A6, which is not surprising since the opening riff of the song is

a sixth arpeggio over the A.  No need to tune down either, since the

bass string is played open on the Eminor9
