Through The Barricades  -  Spandau Ballett
                           TAB Transcription by Luis Ferreira

  Lyrics were posted by someone (?) else, but they were corrected by me.
  Well, at least I changed them... :)
  The chords to the strummed part were left unchanged, everything else was
replaced by TAB. (Last time I forgot to mention the chords were not my own)
  Thanks to Matthias Rohe ( rohe@uni-paderborn.de ) for his comments and
suggestions!

{ Intro End }


Mother doesn't know where love has gone
She says it must be youth that keeps this feeling strong
I see it in her face that's turned to ice
And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice
And now I know what they're saying as our sun begins to fade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades


           Mother..                   ...gone...

{ Now play the 2nd part of the lyrics just like you did before }


Father made my history
He fought for what he thought would set us somehow free
They taught me what to say in school
I learned it half by heart but now that's torn in two
And now I know what they're saying in the music of the parade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

Born on different sides of life
We fear the same and feel all of this strife
So come to me when I'm asleep ( sleep )
We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets
And now I know what they're saying as the drums begin to fade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades


             Born...                ...life

F   C                   G
Oh turn around and I'll be there
          F                     C                      G
There's a scar right through my heart but I'll bear it again
     F                         C
Oh I thought we were the human race
	    G            F#m#5      Em
But we were just another borderline case
         Am7                                 C          D
And the stars reach down and tell us there's always one escape
 
   G       F#m#5               Em
Oh I don't know where love has gone
C            Em           C                    D
And in this troubled land desperation keeps us strong
  G        Bm                   C
A friday's child is through the soul
C            Em                   C            D
With nothing left to lose there's everything to go
           C                 D            G       F#m#7         Em
And now I know what they're saying it's a terrible beauty we've made
       C               Am7            D          G
So we make our love on wasteland and through the barricades

          C                 D             Em     D      C
And now I know what they're saying as our hearts go to their graves
       C                 Am7  C        D
And we made our love on wasteland and through

The barricades
