Intro: Gm Eb Bb

Verse:
     Gm
When we were young we were the ones
    Eb                                     Bb
The kings and queens, oh yeah we ruled the world
          Gm
We smoked cigarettes, man no regrets
     Eb                          Bb
Wish I could relive every single word

Pre-Chorus:
                      Gm                           Eb
We've taken different paths and traveled different roads
                    Bb                                F
I know we'll always end up on the same one when we're old
    Gm                                     Eb                      Bb
And when you're in the trenches and you're under fire I will cover you

Chorus:
         Eb          Gm
If I was dying on my knees
                 Bb            Eb
You would be the one to rescue me
       Eb                  Gm
And if you were drowned at sea
                Bb                 Eb
I'd give you my lungs so you could breathe
             Eb
I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother
     Bb      Eb
I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother

Verse:
   Gm                             Eb
Oh brother, we go deeper than the ink
                           Bb
Beneath the skin of our tattoos
       Gm
Though we don't share the same blood
          Eb                             Bb
You're my brother and I love you, that's the truth

Pre-Chorus:
                       Gm                 Eb
We're living different lives, heaven only knows
                 Bb                                F
If we'll make it back with all our fingers and our toes
Gm                Eb                             Bb
5 years, 20 years come back, we'll always be the same

Chorus:
         Eb          Gm
If I was dying on my knees
                 Bb            Eb
You would be the one to rescue me
       Eb                  Gm
And if you were drowned at sea
                Bb                 Eb
I'd give you my lungs so you could breathe
             Eb
I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother

Bridge:
                          Eb
And if we hit on troubled water
                   Gm                F
I'll be the one to keep you warm and safe
                           Eb
And we'll be carrying each other
                 Gm               F
Until we say goodbye on our dying day
                     Eb
Because I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother
     Bb      Eb
I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother

Chorus:
         Eb          Gm
If I was dying on my knees
                 Bb            Eb
You would be the one to rescue me
       Eb                  Gm
And if you were drowned at sea
                Bb                 Eb
I'd give you my lungs so you could breathe

Interlude:
      Eb            Gm
Oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
            Bb            Eb
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
      Eb            Gm
Oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
            Bb            Eb
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Outro:
             Eb
I've got you brother
     Dm     Gm
I've got you brother
