Everlong Chords
Everlong - Foo Fighters (Chords, Tabs + Lyrics)

There are no chord versions of this song anywhere. Not easy to explain, so I hope I made things 
clear enough. I know this sounds right and I think the lyrics and timing are useful towards
explaining this classic song. 

Tuning: Drop D (DADGBe = low E string down 2 steps)

Verse Chords:
F#5/D = 0-9-11-(11)-x-x
F#5/B = 9-9-11-(11)-x-x (barre 9th fret w/ index finger from above chord)
D5/G  = 5-5-7-7-x-x-x   (keep fingering from above chord and slide down)

Chorus Chords:
B5   = 9-9-9-x-x-x
G5   = 5-5-5-x-x-x
D5/G = 5-5-7-7-x-x      (just add 7's to previously barred G5)
A5   = 7-7-7-x-x-x

Pre-chorus Chords: 
C#/D = 0-4-(x-6)-x-x   
D/D  = 0-5-(x-7)-x-x     
E/D  = 0-7-(x-9)-x-x  
F#/D = 0-9-(x-11)-x-x    
G/D  = 0-10-(x-12)-x-x   
A5   = 7-7-7-x-x-x

About the artist behind Everlong Chords:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
