Hanging High Chords

(ver. 1) Click to play this song!
Lykke Li
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Opening chord: Bm

A very simple melody to be plucked out over the vocals

#1
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
--------5------|---------------|
---3-------3---|---5------7----|

Play the above over the first two lines of the song, this same pattern is simply shifted
the neck throughout the song. Alternatively you can play the chords although due to the
simplicity of the song they are not strummed.

VERSE 1
G
Oh thunder in my heart, this razor's cutting sharp

                                         Bm
And leaves me with an ever bleeding scar

#2
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
--------9------|---------------|
---7-------7---|---9-----10----|

Repeat the above line twice just after 'scar' and then return to the first pattern for
 next lines:

#1
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
---------------|---------------|
--------5------|---------------|
---3-------3---|---5------7----|

G
So soft, so suddenly, so that I cannot breathe

                                     Bm
I'm drawn into a circle painted black


For the chorus (and if you're playing chords over the verse), enunciate each chord with
single downward stroke and let it ring. These chords may not be 100% but the reason
have had problems figuring them out is because the vocals drown them out a bit. I don't 
if what I'm playing is Dsus or Dmaj7, but refer to the chord list at the bottom.

CHORUS
D
Oh I'm hanging high (oh im hanging high),

Dsus4
Oh won't you let me down (Oh won't you let me down)

Dmaj7
I'm back where I started at, (back where i started at)

Dmaj7
you know I'm a little lost (y'know i'm a little lost)

D
And when it hurts the most, (when it hurts the most)

Dsus4
I'll push a little more (push a little more)

Dmaj7
I'm back where I started at,(back where i started at)

Dmaj7
you know I'm a little lost


Repeat for the next verse and chorus, I believe the song finishes as it began, strumming
Bm until fadeout.
