Intro: G Em
  

G
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
                            Am         Em
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
                           C       G
So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
                           Am            Em 
I let you push me past the breaking point
                                   C
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything


    G
You held me down, but I got up
                         Am 
Already brushing off the dust
    Em
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
                    C
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
    G
You held me down, but I got up
                          Am        
Get ready cause I've had enough
  Em                      C
I see it all, I see it now


                     G
I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, 

Dancing through the fire
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
                         Em
Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh...
Am           C        G ...stop
You're gonna hear me roar


G
 Now I'm floatin' like a butterfly
                      Am               Em  
Stingin' like a bee I earned my stripes
                            C
I went from zero, to my own hero


    G
You held me down, but I got up
                         Am 
Already brushing off the dust
    Em
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
                    C
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
    G
You held me down, but I got up
                          Am        
Get ready cause I've had enough
  Em                      C
I see it all, I see it now


                     G
I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, 

Dancing through the fire
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
                         Em
Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh...
Am           C        G 
You're gonna hear me roar
                                              Em
Oh oh oh...,-Hey- Oh oh oh...,-You'll hear me roar- Oh oh oh...
Am           C        G    Am  Em   D 
You're gonna hear me roar



    B              B B B B
Roar, roar, roar, roar


                     G
I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, 

Dancing through the fire
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion
      Em                  Am           C        G
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
                               Em
Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh...,-Yeah- Oh oh oh...
Am           C        G
You're gonna hear me roar
                                         Em
Oh oh oh..., Oh oh oh...,-You'll hear me roar- Oh oh oh...
Am           C        G
You're gonna hear me roar

  1. Strumming pattern?

  2. On +2, I think it sounds better to cut out the Dm and just keep on playing C. Also, does anyone have a strum pattern for this song?

  3. Same with the bridge. Replace the D with F.

  4. The Eb sounds better as an Fmaj. (or a whole step up from what ever that chord is in other keys)

    • Hi. I tried your suggestion and I thought the Eb worked better than the F major. Good to check out other possibilities, however!

  5. Sasquatchjam

    I felt like the Am on “you’re gonna hear me roar” doesn’t sound right (transposed -3). I replaced it with Em, it sounds much better.
    Other than that this is great. Thanks!

  6. I thought the easiest transpose for this +2 ! Good luck.

    rhythm is a bit hard with changing between chords in the verse, but I really love it! Thanks for putting it up!
