    Em        Bm          D                 D           C
                    (played barred)      (normal)  
 
e |--0--|  |--2--|     |--2--|           |--2--|     |--0--|
B |--0--|  |--3--|     |--3--|           |--3--|     |--1--|

D |--2--|  |--4--|     |--4--|           |--0--|     |--2--|
A |--2--|  |--2--|     |--5--|           |-----|     |--3--|
E |--0--|  |--2--|     |--2--|           |-----|     |-----|

NOTE: I think that Cranberries used the D barred but the song sound better also
      with D played normal so...you can use one or the other!!! 
      In my opinion the song sound better with D barred but...it's my opinion...

Intro Riff:

   Em       Bm            D        C
|-0-0-0-0--2-2-2--------2-2-2-2--0-0-0---|
|-0-0-0-0--3-3-3--------3-3-3-3--1-1-1---|
|-0-0-0-0--4-4-4--------2-2-2-2--0-0-0---|
|-2-2-2-2--4-4-4-----------------2-2-2---|
|-2-2-2-2--2-2-2-----------------3-3-3---|
|-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-------------------------|

Use D Barred or normal...in the riff the D it's Normal!

Play the Intro riff 2 TIMES CLEAN
and after           2 TIMES DISTORTED


The second Guitar play this riff, repeat over and over in the song, 
in the background but only when the first guitar play the Bm and D chord.

Because you bet, you get what you deserve,

It does not matter anyway.


Em                      Bm
Why can't you stay here awhile,

Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we made,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I prayed, prayed, prayed,
Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we broke,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I spoke, spoke, spoke


Em
What all the things that you taught me,
Bm
What of all the things that you'd say,
D
What of all you prophetic preaching,
C
You're just throwing it all away,


Em
Maybe you should burn the house down,
Bm
Have ourselves another fight,
D
Leave the cobwebs in the closet,
C
Cos learning them out is just not right.


Em                      Bm
Why can't you stay here awhile,
           D
Stay here awhile,
          C
Stay with me



Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we made,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I prayed, prayed, prayed,
Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we broke,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I spoke, spoke, spoke



Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we made,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I prayed, prayed, prayed,
Em    Bm
Ohhh, all the promises we broke,
        D
All the meaningless and empty words,
  C
I spoke, spoke, spoke
