Verse 1

Was a Bmlong and dark December From the rooftops I remember There was Gsnow, white Emsnow ClBmearly I remember from the windows They were watching while we Gfroze Down belEmow

Chorus

When the fGuture's architectured By a Acarnival of idiots on Bmshow You'd better lie Alow If you Glove Fmme, Dwon’t you Bmlet Ame Bmknow?

Verse 2

Was a Bmlong and dark December When the banks became cathedrals And a Gfox became EmGod PBmriests clutched onto bibles Hollowed out to fit their rifles And the cGross was held Emaloft

Chorus

GBury me an armour When I’m Adead and hit the ground My nerves are Bmpoles that unfAroze If you Glove Fmme, Dwon’t you Bmlet Ame Bmknow?

Guitar solo

(the last chord is played the second time only, and the first time, you just return to beginning of the solo...)

Chorus

I don’t Gwant to be a soldier Who theA captain of some sinking ship WouldBm stow Far Abelow So, if you Glove Fmme, Dwhy’d you Bmlet Ame Bmgo?

Outro

I took my Dlove Gdown to DVioBmlet AHill G AThere we Bmsat Fmin the Gsnow GAll Athat Bmtime Emshe was DsilBment Astill SaidFm if you Glove Fmme, Dwon’t you Bmlet Ame Gknow? FmIf you lovGe meFm, woDn’t you leBmt meA knBmow? MORE COMPLEX VERSION:

FmIf you lGove Fmme, Dwon’t you Bmlet Ame Bmknow? So it's pretty much all there. For the distorted guitar fill during the verses (instead playing the Em (and Em6 for the complex one)), you can play the last 4 chords written in the "guitar solo"... So enjoy !!! (and feel free for any suggestions)
