Intro - piano -: E Abm A E

Verse 1:
E        Abm
  Hey Gloria
         A                    E
Are you standing close to the edge?
E                Abm
  Lookout to the setting sun
A                   B
  The brink of your vision
E         Abm
  Eternal youth is
  A                 E
A landscpe from the lie
E                   Abm
  The cracks of my skin can prove
A                   B
  As the years will testify

Pre-Chorus 1:
Dbm                    Abm
  Say your prayers and light a fire
A                       E  B
  Were going to start a war
Dbm              Abm
  Your slogans a gun for hire 
A              B- hold -
  It's what we waited for

Verse 2:
E        Abm
  Hey Gloria
        A                E
This is what were on the edge

  The fight of our lives been drawn to
     A       E- hold -
This undying love

Interlude: Beat Changes from Ballad Piano to Fast Punk Rock

Chorus 1:
E               Abm
Gloria, Viva La Gloria
  You blast your name
In graffiti on the walls
   Falling thought broken glass that's
 E       B             Dbm
Slashing thought your spirit
A                             B
  I can hear it like a jilted crowd

Chorus 2:
E                     Abm
Gloria, Where are you Gloria?
   You found a home
In all your scars and ammunition 
Am                           E
  You made your bed in salad days
 B          Dbm
Amongst the ruins
A                       B
  Ashes to ashes of our youth 

Verse 3:
E                 Abm           Dbm
  She smashed her knuckles into winter
A            E               B
  As autumns wind fades into black
E            Abm              Dbm
  She is the saint on all the sinners 
A                E                  B
  The one that's fallen thought the cracks

Pre-Chorus 2:
         A             B
So don't put away your burning light

Chorus 3:
E                     Abm
Gloria, Where are you Gloria?
   Don't lose your faith 
To your lost naivete
  Weather the storm and don't look
E       B      Dbm
Back on last november
A                                B
  When your banner where burning down

Chorus 4:
E               Abm
Gloria, Viva La Gloria
   Send me you amenesty down
To the broken hearted
   Bring us the season
        E      B      Dbm
That we always will remember
A                           B
  Don't let the bonfires go out

   A  E
So Gloria,
A               E         A
  Send out your message of the light
     E             B
That Shadow in the night
A  E  A                E

A              E            B

your life

  1. -4 is easiest for me

  2. stringpicker

    I prefer transposing it to -4, sounds really good and is simple to play, plus suits my voice better

  3. greendaytrash
