Chords: Brian Ray – This Way Up

As the title track from Brian Ray’s second solo album, This Way Up is a solid electric rocker that centers on three grungily thrashing and starkly spiky chords (D A E).

This Way Up is available as a MP3 download to buy from both Brian Ray’s official website and iTunes, as well as all other places where digital music downloads are sold.

This Way Up

(intro – can be played as open chords…although power chords sound better!)

D A E x8

(verse)

A_______C#m______F#m
Lets go drivin’ in my car

____F
Lets hit the gas

________Dm__________G
And we’ll outrun the past

A_______C#m_______F#m
Lets go drivin’ like the fools they say we are

_____G_______________D
We’ll turn this thing around

_____G__________________F#m
The whole world’s upside down

(chorus)

_____D__A__E___D__A__E______________D___A__E__D__A__E
I said hey, —- hey, hey, —- it’s time to make our getaway

_____D__A__E___D__A__E________D_____A___E__D__A__E
I said hey, —- hey, hey, —-talkin’ bout a great escape

___D___A_E____D__A__E
So hold on tight, ride with me

______D___A__E______D_____A__E
We’ll storm the gates like Steve McQueen

______G_______B
And it’s this way up

D A E x4

Doesn’t matter who you are
Or who you think you are
If you have a heart
Forget the crap you learned
Back in your little school
They changed the rules last night
They said what’s wrong was right

(chorus)

(solo)

C__G__C__G
C__G__B
C__G__D__G
C__G__B

(chorus)
