Preaching the End of the World

I spent the afternoon transcribing this beautiful Chris Cornell song.

PREACHING THE END OF THE WORLD
By Chris Cornell, Natasia Shneider, and Alain Johannes
Transcribed by Ryan P. Long


A       Asus2
Hello I know there's someone 


F#m              F#m/E
Out there who can understand and who's


D      Bm7              Esus4    E   
Feeling the same way as me


A          Asus2
I'm twenty-four and I have


F#m           F#m/E
Everything to live for, but I 


Bm7             C#m              Dm       Esus4    E
Know now that it wasn't meant to be


       Em      E 
'Cause all has been gone and


A7      Em
All has been done and there's


D              Dsus2 D Dm
Nothing left for us to save


Dsus4 Dm    Dsus2 Dm  A
We    could be    to  gether as they


C#m         F#m
Blow it all away      so if you 


Dm                    F#dim            Esus4   E
Find that you've been feeling just the same    Call me now it's


Bm
Alright


              F#m                F#m/E
It's just the end of the world


           D                     C#m
You need a friend in the world


                 Am/C
'Cause you can't hide


   Bm7               Esus4      E
So call and I'll get right back


          F#                F#7
If your intentions are pure


              D              E          A       E
I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world




I've got a photograph I'll send it off today
And you will see that I am perfectly sane
Not for a lifetime or forever and a day
'Cause you know now that just won't be the case


So call me now it's alright
It's just the end of the world
You need a friend in the world
'Cause you can't hide
So call and get right back
If your intentions are pure
I'm seeking a friend
For the end


              A7
Of the world


D
There'll be no committment and 


D7
No confessions and


G7                   C      Csus2 C
No little secrets to keep


Cm
No little children or


G
Houses with roses just


   F#dim                 Esus4     E
The end of the world and me


Em            E
'Cause all has been gone and


A7      Em
All has been done and there's


D               Dsus2  D  Dm
Nothing left for us    to save


   Dsus4  Dm    Dsus2  Dm  A              C#m         F#m   F#m/E
But we    could be     to  gether as they blow it all away


             DM            F#dim         Esus4     E             
And we could share in every moment as it breaks




[Chorus (x2)]


F#m    Am/C    Dm     Esus4    E    A
