difficulty: intermediate



                

Tuning: Standard

     A   E   Bm  F#m   

E|---5---0---2----2---|       *Note: This song can also be played

B|---5---0---3----2---|        with a capo on the 2nd fret. The chord

G|---6---1---4----2---|        shapes would then be G (instead of A),

D|---7---2---4----4---|        D (instead of E), Am (instead of Bm),

A|---7---2---2----4---|        and Em (instead of F#m).

E|---5---0---x----2---|

The strumming pattern is mostly up-strums, with a palm-muted down-strum

after every other up-strum. But it sounds fine if you do the whole thing

up-strumming as well.

Chorus x2:

A                           E

Hayley, it doesn't even matter now

                   Bm           F#m     E

We could've truly had it all

Verse x1:

        A                                             E

They took him to the hills where they made him a star

                                       Bm

Everyone loved who they knew from afar

                                          F#m

They famed a deceiver, who wed a believer

             E                              A

With her fed, she conceived his little girl

                               E

Who oppressed called in danger

                              

Torched his eyes with her anger

         Bm

All the flashes captured daddy's dismay

        F#m                            E

And she took her life before she could run away

Repeat Chorus x1

Verse x1:

  A                                                 E

I went there, to the site they had said she would be

                                   Bm

Too cold a world for a girl seventeen

                                          F#m

I couldn't complete it, they wouldn't foresee it

         E                             A

Love is now where her life couldn't be

                          E

Oh, believe it can happen

Death is time's true companion

        Bm

And the future takes a second to be

           F#m                    E

Close your eyes and feel what is happening

Repeat Chorus x2

Out:

A                                 E

Hayley, the dark world took you under

                  Bm

Whatever made you wonder?

                  F#m     E

Whatever made you wonder?

End on A.

The lyrics aren't 100%, as far as I know, but you can at least

get a feel for the timing.

Feedback is appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions

or corrections!
