Burning Bridges Chords
Hi!

First of all I gotta say that this is not the way he plays it live...with dropped D 
and stuff. But this sounds to 99% correct and is easier to play.
Here it is:

Standard tuning

       E A D G B e

G      3 2 0 0 3 0

D/F    2 0 0 2 3 0

Em7    0 2 2 0 3 0

Cadd9  0 3 2 0 3 3

C(1)   0 2 1 2 3 0   (you can also play 0 2 0 2 3 0)

Intro: G - D/F - Em7 - Cadd9 (2x)

           S = strum     x = Strum slightly up-down-up-down-up
                         x

           S             S             S             S
       e|- - - 0 -     - - - 0-      - - - 0 -     - - - 3 -
       B|- - - - 3     - - - - 3     - - - - 3     - - - - 3
       G|- 0 - - -  x  - 2 - - -  x  - 0 - - -  x  - 0 - - - x
       D|- 0 0 - -  x  - 0 0 - -  x  - 2 2 - -  x  - 2 2 - - x
       A|- 2 - - -     - 0 - - -     2 2 - - -     3 3 - - -
       E|3 - - - -     2 - - - -     - - - - -     - - - - -

This pattern is used through the whole song!


Verse:
G        D/F                Em7            Cadd9
I know exactly how you feel you were this close to closing deals

G               D/F
when everything fell from out your hands

Em7                 Cadd9
you were forced to decide on other plans now

G               D/F                   Em7              Cadd9
you figured it best to just ignore it otherwise you're only living for it

G              D/F
and if anyone ever wondered why you did it

Em7                    Cadd9
you'd swear they never know you sold your soul to the

Em7                                D/F (only play E string here once)
burning, burning, burning, burning bridges


(The second verse is played the same way)


you know exactly what I want so
I don't have to be so damn upfront
no matter the moment we decide to make our minds up
I know a man who may need a new assignment
to hand in his heart and take his last vacation
attempting to spoil imagination
if anyone ever wonders where he went
I wouldn't say that he spent his time driving over

Em7                       D/F (play normal pattern)
burning, burning, burning bridges


Cadd9
burning, burning which is

         C(1)                  (strum C(1) down once)
nothing more than a longing for

           Em7   D/F    Cadd9
being uninvoooo-oooooo-oolved


     Em7   D/F    Cadd9  C(1)
uninvoooo-oooooo-oooooo-oolved

      Em7     D/F   Cadd9
uninvooooooo-ooooo-ooolved
uninvolved (same as above)

       G   D/F           Em7    Cadd9
oh, desiii-re can cause heart attacks
oh, desire can cause heart attacks
oh, desire can cause heart attacks
oh, desire, it won't bring you back


Hope you got it.

bye
