Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...



                The Sundays

                Life Goes On

 

        C     G                        Dmin6

        Build me up don't get me down, weather the storm

        F     C

        Well, life goes on

        G                              Dm

        Feelings ebb and flow by hour, you're up in the clouds

        F

        And then you sink like a stone

        F                                  C

        So do you feed yourself with pills oh, to deaden your ills

        F

        Am Or are you only one love short of happiness?

        G        F

        And in a picture on a wall

        C

        No glimmer of yourself at all

        Dm F G C

        You've let yourself fall away

        G

        Build me up, don't mop my brow

        Dmin6

        Weather the storm, no

        F C

        Because life goes on

        G

        It's my only hope right now

        Dm

        To soar like a bird

        F

        And not to sink like a stone

        F

        So do you feed yourself with pills

        C

        Oh, to deaden your ills

        F Am

        Or are you only one love short of happiness

        G F

        And in a picture on a wall

        C

        No glimmer of yourself at all

        Dm F G

        You've left yourself far away

        F

        Oh so do you feed yourself with pills

        C

        To cure you of your ills

        F Am

        Or are you only one love short of the happy days to come?

        G F

        And in a picture on a wall

        C

        Can't see the face at all

        Dm

        So untie yourself

        F

        Because that's all you've got to do

        G F

        And I can grab a pair of wings

        C

        And I can take up flying Won't be no crying

        F Am

        Up in the air, lookin' back down

        G F

        And let me tell you if I talk about gloom

        C

        I don't get out of feeling down

        Dm

        It strips you of yourself

        F C

        And splits your from the self that you know

I got some help from another list guitarist (which is almost fun to say)

and I'm pretty confident about all but one chord.  It's somewhere

between Dm and Dmin6.  I just can't find the right note.  It sounds like

David's high E string is tuned down a half step for that one note or

something (then you'd play a Dm).

 

Verse:  C G Dmin6 (XX0230)  <--- this is the troublemaker!

        F C G Dm><--- troublemaker's brother!

        F

Chorus: F (barre) C F (barre) Am G F (barre) C Dm F G (finish on C)
