Verse:
            D
There's an albatross around your neck,
          A
All the things you've said,

and the things you've done,
          D
Can you carry it with no regrets,
         A
Can you stand the person you've become,
Gbm   D           A
Ooooh there's a light -x2-

Chorus:
D         A          Gbm       E
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
D         A          Gbm              E
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
          D 
When you just can't shake
     A                  E
The heavy weight of living

Verse: 
          D
Stepping forward out into the day
          A
Shrugging off the dust and memory
            D
Though it's soaring still above your head
         A
It is out of sight and none shall see
Gbm   D           A
Ooooh there's a light -x2-

Chorus:
D         A          Gbm       E
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
D         A          Gbm              E
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
          D 
When you just can't shake
     A                  E
The heavy weight of living

Bridge:
       Gbm   D            A            E 
It's the suuun in your eyes, in your eyes -x4-

Chorus:
D         A          Gbm       E
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
D         A          Gbm              E
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
          D 
When you just can't shake
     A                  E
The heavy weight of living
          D 
When you just can't seem to shake
     A                  E
The heavy weight of Living

Outro:
          D     A
The Weight of Living 
             E 
The Weight of Living -x2-

    Put a capo on the first fret and it sounded way better that way!

  2. The original key is one half step down (if you want to play the original key I recommend transposing 2 steps down with capo on 1st fret.
    Thank you for the chords!!

  3. Yes! I’m so glad they put out this song!

    Love this song. I find that the chords are much simpler in +3 and it’s also an easier key to sing in, personally.
