Deakin - Golden Chords Guitar Chords

Chords: C, Bb, Dm, G, F, Em, Eb
The whole song seems to be based on fifth-string root bar chords, but because they go so high at one point 
and because only three strings are necessary, simpler shapes can be made. Standard tuning.

C


[Verse]

Bb    C
Days fog
       Bb                                       Dm          C 
Can’t see past the edge of what’s gone but I’m hoping I’ll try 
         Bb     C
And the rain shines
           Bb                                 Dm           C
And the showers and the fawns in the field arrange in my eyes
        Dm
So why fight?
        C
With nature’s call around
                 Dm
You talk about frights
         C
In the verse of the every song
                    Dm
You tell me what’s wrong
             G
But what’s right?
 (G)
You’re seeing creation


[Chorus]

        C                              F
That crushing never ending change is so full of love
 F            G                 C8            F
And so you’re waking to face the change in your role
 F            G                  C8              F
And with each restless shiver you wretch from your soul
 F              G
You’re asking, oooooh
                      C8      F
Is that something I’m not anymore?
 F          G                  C8                   F
A brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold

Em     F      C


[Verse]

       Dm
And I tried
      C
To survive without that gold
              Dm
And wondering why
        C
Our exchange can never hold
              Dm
Am I what’s wrong?
              G
Well what’s right?
 (G)
Stop trusting in demons


[Chorus]

           C                             F
You’re scattered ever lonely buddy but so full of love
 F                G                  C8             F
Please stop repeating your terror you choose what you see
 F            G    
It’s always “what if?” and “why not?”
   C8               F
Man you gotta just be
 F   G              C8                   F    
Simplify, define your goals and watch them grow
 F    G                C8           F  
Be your own true self the you that I know


[Interlude]

Em     F      C
Em     Eb
Bb      C      Dm


[Bridge]

 Bb   C
Days gone
      Bb                                      Dm        C
As I peer past the edge of what’s lost I’m starting to cry
         Bb      C
But the rain’s fine
         Bb                              Dm      C
And the tears feel warm and my body is humming alive
    Dm
In time
          C
You’ll revive what you thought dead
                         Dm
You’ve stopped your own climb
         C
On the verge of every end
                     Dm
You tell me what’s wrong
             G
But what’s right?


[Chorus]

 (G)                                 C                                          F
Stop believing your being’s been shattered and distorted cause brother you're so full of love
 F           G                C8            F
And so you’re hoping to make a change in your role
 F        G                   C8             F
Repeating mantras to find some ground for your soul
 F             G 
Stop asking, oooooh
                      C8       F
Is that something I’m not anymore?
 F          G                  C8                    F
A brother to shake these broken chords till they turn gold

Em     F      C




F*: The F chord played at the beginning of each line sounds different from the F played at the end of the 
previous line (or vice versa?). I couldn’t pinpoint the difference, but it’s pretty clear when you listen 
to the music.
