Browne Jackson - The Barricades Of Heaven (First Version) Chords / Tabs

Browne Jackson - The Barricades Of Heaven First Version: chords and tabs for the song. Watch chords and tablatures for all songs of the singer (group) Browne Jackson. Other chords and tabs for the "The Barricades Of Heaven" can find at the bottom of the page.

This is one of Jackson Browne's all time best songs.  The chords I've
transcribed have a variation on the C and the D, because I think that kind
of helps a single guitar arrangement keep the drone of the full band.  To
play it the way Jackson does, play a regular C and a regular D.

INTROO : Em, C, G, D (TWICE)

Em        C              G               D
Running down along the towns along the shore
Em           C                 G         D
When I was sixteen and on my own
Em              C                 G                      D
No I couldn't tell you what the hell those breaks were for
Em           C                 G           D
I was just trying to hear my song

Em, C, G, D (TWICE)

Em                C                       G             D
Jimmy found his own sweet sound when he won that free guitar
Em             C                   G            D
And we'd all get in the van and play
Em                C            G                  D
Life became the Paradox, the Bell, the Rouge et noir
Em                   C               G            D
And the stretch of road running to L.A.

Em            C
BRIDGE :  Pages turning
G               D
Pages we were years from learning
Em                  C                     G       D
Straight into the night our hearts were flung

(PLAY REGULAR "C" and "D" for chorus)

C                G       D           C     D
CHORUS :  Better bring your own redemtion when you come
C                G    D         C
To the barricades of heaven where I'm from

Em, C, G, D (Twice)

Em  C               G                  D
All the world was shining from those hills
Em                C                    G        D
With the stars above and the lights below
Em              C                   G               D
Among those there to test their fortune and their will
Em       C                       G         D
I lost track of the score long ago


BRIDGE, CHORUS

Em         F          C/E
Childhood comes for me at night
Em           F       C/E
The voices of my friends
Em           F      C/E
Your face bathing me in light
Em            F      C/E
I hope that never ends

Em, C, G, D (TWICE)

Em        C
Pages turning
G                D
Pages torn and pages burning
Em             C           G        D
Faded pages open in the sun

Chorus (TWICE)

Em, C, G, D (FADE)
