Intro 4x: Am Am C C G G Em Em

Am Am C C G G
Lay beside me,
Em Em Am Am
Tell me what they've done,
C C G G
And speak the words I wanna hear
Em Em Am Am
To make my demons run.
C C G G
The door is locked now,
Em Em Am Am
But it's opened if you're true.
C C G G
If you can understand the me,
Em Em ( Am Am C C G G Em Em ) (2x)
Then I can understand the you.

Am Am C C G G
Lay beside me,
Em Em Am Am
Under wicked skies.
C C G G
Through back of day, dark of night,
Em Em Am Am
We share this paralyse.
C C G G
The door cracks open,
Em Em Am Am
But there's no sun shining through.
C C G G
Black heart scarring darker still,
Em Em Dm Dm
Still no sun shining through,
F F G G
No no sun shining through,
F F Am Am
No no sun shining.

Chorus:

Am Am G G
What I've felt, what I've known,
C C E7 E7
Turn the pages turn the stone
Am Am G G C C E7 E7
Behind the door should I open it for you?
Am Am G G
What I've felt, what I've known
C C E7 E7
Sick and tired I stand alone,
Am Am G G C C
Could you be there? Cause I'm the one who waits for you.
E7 E7 ( Am Am C C G G Em Em ) (2x)
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Am Am C C G G
Come lay beside me,
Em Em Am Am
This won't hurt I swear.
C C G G
She loves me not she loves me still,
Em Em Am Am
But she'll never love again.
C C
She lay beside me,
G G Em Em Am Am
But she'll be there when I'm gone.
C C G G
Black heart scarring darker still,
E7 E7 Dm Dm
Yeah she'll be there when I'm gone.
F F G G
Yes she'll be there when I'm gone,
F F Am Am
Dead sure she'll be there.

Chorus:

Am Am G G
What I've felt, what I've known,
C C E7 E7
Turn the pages turn the stone
Am Am G G C C E7 E7
Behind the door should I open it for you?
Am Am G G
What I've felt, what I've known
C C E7 E7
Sick and tired I stand alone,
Am Am G G C C
Could you be there? Cause I'm the one who waits for you.
E7 E7 ( Am Am C C G G Em Em ) (2x)
Or are you unforgiven, too?

About this song

"The Unforgiven" is a song by the American heavy metal band Metallica. It was released as the third single from their fifth album Metallica. Though one of the slower tracks on the album, its chord progression is distinctly one of the heavier.The Unforgiven Songfacts says: On the show Classic Albums: Metallica - The Black Album, James Hetfield explained that the intro was taken from the score of a Western movie, and reversed so it would not be identifiable.
