Against The Current “Comeback Kid” Guitar Chords

Against The Current “Comeback Kid” Guitar Chords

 

Hi, this song was requested :)  When I received this request, I looked up the song and instantly I loved it!  It’s a great song and I’m so glad I was able to figure out the guitar chords because it’s fun to play too!  I’m definitely going to have to look into this band a little more and check out more of their music :)

Play along with the song to get the timing/strumming down.  It’s really easy-

 

 

← ← AUTO SCROLL

 

*The chords that have '(#)', it means the number of
strums/beats per chord.  The timing is tricky so this
helps a lot!

STANDARD TUNING w/
CAPO ON 4


Intro-
 
C C/B Am F
(Oh, oh....)


             C                     C/B
You got this subtle kind of way of making everything turn grey
       Am                                 F
Like a bottle that runs dry before you've even had a drink
       C                            C/B
Do you think what you do just might fix the bad in you?
            Am               F
Well you're wrong this time around
    C                            C/B
And oh, oh, oh, oh, you know you gave me something to believe in
Am                         F
Oh, oh, oh, oh, you hide behind these battle lines




               C
I'm gonna be a comeback kid and I want to 
         C/B
Find the words I need to say
          Am
Yeah, I'm gonna survive with my head held high
    F
And finally walk away
               C
I'm gonna be a comeback kid and I want to 
       C/B
Be the one that's not afraid
             Am                            F
To jump from every sinking ship 'cause I'm done
              C                      C/B
Waiting to be saved (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
         Am                       F
I'm done waiting (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)  




             C
You got this subtle kind of way about you 
     C/B
That pulls me under but I won't drown
     Am
It's gonna take a whole lot more than that 
   F
To ever bring me down
          C
I promise that I'll be back 
            C/B
And I'll be better than before
               Am
What you broke down I'll build back up  
               F
'cause I don't need you anymore




    C                            C/B
And oh, oh, oh, oh, you know you gave me something to believe in
    Am                     F
Oh, oh, oh, oh, you hide behind these battle lines
    C                            C/B
And oh, oh, oh, oh, you know you gave me something to believe in
    Am                     F
Oh, oh, oh, oh, you hide behind these battle lines

  1. Hey, this F “Well you’re wrong this time around” at the end sounds wrong for me. A “G” would fit, but then the beginning of the next line sounds wrong. Would be awesome if you could check this and maybe find a better(?) solution.

    Regards

    1. Hi :) I played that part through again and to me it sounds correct. But to double check, I transposed the chords to the 2nd fret and then to no capo, and it still worked*. So, I don’t know what to tell you. If all the rest of the chords are sounding correct then it wouldn’t be your tuning… Just make sure your playing the F correctly. Try transposing the chords and see what you think. http://www.tabtuner.com/new/

      (Sometimes when a chord is just slightly off and not that noticeable, when the chords are transposed you’ll hear that it is indeed wrong, but in this case the transposed chord continued to sound correct each time. )
