I play this song differently from the great two guitar 
for one guitar:


     Asus4   A        Asus4   A        
-------------12-12-------------12-12----------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
-12-12-12-11-------12-12-12-11----------------
--0--0--0--0--------0--0--0--0----------------

G-9-9-9-7------------9-9-9-9-7---------------------
D-0-0-0-0------------0-0-0-0-0---------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

The intro Ds to each verse have this small difference:


  Dsus2   D                  Dsus2   D
E----------------------------------------------------
B----------10-10-----------------10---10-------------
G-9-9-9-7------------9-9-9-9-7-----7----7------------
D-0-0-0-0------------0-0-0-0-0-----------------------

Live Aid and Wide Awake in America lick at the ending jam:

Chords (c/o Scott Yanoff):

If    you twist and turn away.
Asus4 A   Asus4 A   Dsus2 D    Dsus2  D

If    you tear yourself in two   again.
Asus4 A   Asus4   A        Dsus2 D     Dsus2  D

If I  could, yes I would
Asus4 A      Asus4 A

If I     could, I would let it go.
   Dsus2 D       Dsus2 D

	         Surren   - der,         dislocate.
Asus4 A  Asus4 A    Dsus2   D   Dsus2  D

Asus4 A  Asus4 A  Dsus2 D  Dsus2  D

If     I could throw this lifeless
ASus4  A       Asus4     A

Life- line to the wind.
Dsus2 D		       Dsus2 D

       Leave this heart of clay,
Dsus D	          Asus4    A

See you walk, walk away,
Asus4   A         Dsus2  D

      Into the night.
Dsus D        Asus4  A

        And through the rain.
Asus4 A     	       Dsus2   D

      Into the half-light,
Dsus D        Asus4  A

        And through the flame.
Asus4 A     	       Dsus2   D   Dsus2 D

If I could throw myself,
set your spirit free.
I'd lead your heart away,
See you break, break away
Into the light.
And to the day.

(Here, suggested start jamming with regular A and D chords)

/*Note fom Pete:  I bar (barre) them on the 5th fret here*/

Hoo, hoo    Hoo, hoo   Hoo, hoo.    
A          	       D 

Hoo, hoo    Hoo, hoo   Hoo, hoo.    
A          	       D 

To let it go,
  	      A

And so to fade away.
          D

To let it go,
  	      A
 
And so fade away.
          D

I'm wide awake.
               A

/*Note fom Pete:  I play open chords here until the
main riff starts again.*/


I'm wide awake.   wide awake,       
	       G             E	    (Now switch back to chords from intro)

I'm not sleeping.
Dsus2   Asus4 A

Oh, no, no.

If you should ask then maybe
They tell you what I would say.
True colors fly in blue and black,
Bruised silken skies and burning flag.
Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes.
A                                   D	  (Once again, regular chords now)

/*See notes above.*/

Hoo, hoo    Hoo, hoo   Hoo, hoo.    
A          	       D 

If I could, you know I would.

If I could, I would let it go.
This desparation.
Dislocation.
Separation.
Condemnation.
Revelation.
Temptation.
Isolation.
Desolation.

Let it go,
And so to fade away.
To let it go,
And so fade away.
Oh, no
I'm wide awake.
I'm wide awake.
I'm not sleeping.
Oh, no no


BTW, the versions on Live Aid and Wide Awake In America are moved down
a 1/2 step.  I find that most of their live stuff is 
Tuned down like that.
