*Verse 1*
G G D D
Sometimes I get the feeling
Dm Dm C C
She's watching over me
G G D D
And other times I feel like I should go
G G D D
And through it all, the rise and fall
Dm Dm C C
The bodies in the streets
G G D D
And when you're gone we want you all to know

*Chorus*
G G D D Em Em
We'll carry on, we'll carry on
G G C C
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
D D G G D D Em Em
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
G G C C
And in my heart, I can't contain it
D D
The anthem won't explain it

*Verse 2*
G G D D
A A world that sends you reeling
Dm Dm C C
From decimated dreams
G G D D
Your misery and hate will kill us all
G G D D
So paint it black and take it back
Dm Dm C C
Let's shout it loud and clear
G G D D
Defiant to the end, we hear the call

*Chorus*
G G D D Em Em
to carry on, we'll carry on
G G C C
And though you're dead and gone, believe me
D D G G D D Em Em
Your memory will carry on, we'll carry on
G G C C
And though you're broken and defeated
D D
Your weary widow marches

*Bridge*
B B Em Em
On and on we carry through the fears. (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
B B Em Em
Disappointed faces of your peers. (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
C C
Take a look at me
G G
'Cause I could not care at all
D D
Do or die, you'll never make me
Em Em G G C C
Because the world, will never take my heart.
G G
Go and try, you'll never break me
C C D D G G
We want it all, we wanna play this part.
D D Em Em
I won't explain or say I'm sorry

I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scar

Give a cheer, for all the broken.

I'm just a man, I'm not a hero

Wow, this is an amazing tab!!! Lovely job on it, you really put lots of effort into it. It sounds great! I didn't notice any wonky chords, and none of them were misplaced. Just... awesome! Also, my sister scored MCR tickets, but can't go to the show because of the Coronavirus outbreak :,(

About this song

Originally conceived of while writing their first album under the tentative title "The Five of Us Are Dying", the song was finally finished for inclusion as the central song in the album "The Black Parade". The music video for this song utilizes imagery reminiscent of a grimly interpreted "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." This song was the first single to showcase MCR's more theatrical approach to recording, with many tracks used in recording and Gerard's movement in the video being quite similar to Freddie Mercury's bravado in Queen's grandiose stage performances.
