How You Survived The War Chords
The Weepies - How You Survived The War

Note: I was a little stumped by the "You give up like every time before" line so 
I tried my best and heard a Dadd9 
but I could be horribly wrong. Anyways enjoy this beyond awesome song!!!

Intro: (keyboard fades in on Asus)

Dsus2 Asus4 Dsus2/G Asus4 x2

Verse:
Dsus2      Asus4             Dsus2/G       Asus4
You never change your mind once it's made up
Dsus2          Dsus/G             Asus4   Asus/C#
Unless it's to crawl back on your knees

Chorus:
        Dsus2/G     Asus4    
Is that the way you want it?
    Dsus2           Asus4
You get back to the wall
             Dsus2/G
And put your hands up
       Asus4
It's a holdup
Dsus2       Dadd9           Asus4
You give up like every time before
Dsus2/G     Asus4            Dsus2
That is how you survived the war

Interlude: Dadd9 Dsus2/G Asus4 Asus4 x2

Verse(same progression):
You never multiply, all these divisions
You give yourself the least of parts
I put on my green felt hat, pack our privisions
Playing a merry Prince of Thieves

Chorus(same progression):
Is that the way you want it?
You get back to the wall
And put your hands up
It's a holdup
You give up like every time before
That is how you survived the war

Interlude: Dadd9 Dsus2/G Asus4 Asus4 x2 (kind of hold out I think on Asus4 as you 
go into the next part)

Bridge:
Dadd9            Dsus2/G   Asus4  Asus2
You're not gonna lose this one
Dadd9            Dsus2/G   Asus4  Asus2
You don't have to cut and run
Dadd9            Dsus2/G   Asus4  Asus2
I think you can choose to love and what is more
Dsus2/G     Asus4            Dsus2
That is how you survived the war

Verse:
Now in a summer's day, spring a ripened plum
How will you live under the sun?
You follow the open road, remembering the guns
When you get lost under the trees

Chorus:
Is that the way you want it?
You get back to the wall
And put your hands up
It's a holdup
You give up like every time before
That is how you survived the war

Dsus2/G     Asus4            Dsus2
That is how you survived the war

Dsus2      Asus4             Dsus2/G       Asus4
You never change your mind once it's made up

End on Dsus2

About the artist behind How You Survived The War Chords:

The Weepies are an indie pop-folk band fronted by singer-songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. Their music has been described as "subtly intoxicating folk-pop".[1] The two musicians, who were both active in separate singer-songwriter careers, met in 2001 at a show Tannen was playing at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. They quickly found a deep musical bond and began playing together. In 2005, they were signed to Nettwerk Records.[2] Currently, Talan and Tannen are married and reside together in Topanga, California. Talan gave birth to a baby boy, Theo Samuel Tannen, on October 7, 2007.

Other supporting members who have recorded and toured with The Weepies include Meghan Toohey on keyboards and electric guitar.[3]

In 2007, the band collaborated with Mandy Moore, writing and playing on her new album, Wild Hope. The couple announced on their website that a new 14-track album, Hideaway, had been recorded at home, with the aid of fellow musicians and friends. Hideaway was released on April 22, 2008 by Nettwerk Records.

The band has received some mainstream attention with their second album, Say I Am You. In February 2006, the album reached #1 on iTunes' list of most-downloaded folk albums in eight countries. The single "World Spins Madly On" from that album hit #1 on iTunes' US folk song charts.[4]

Songs from Say I Am You have been featured on many popular TV shows, including Grey's Anatomy,[5] Everwood,[6] One Tree Hill,[7] Scrubs[8], The Riches[9], How I Met Your Mother[10], Gossip Girl[11], GRΣΣK and Kyle XY[12].
