Intro:  / Em - G - / D - A - / x2
 
Em       G
I walk a lonely road   
    D        A                  Em
The only one I that have ever known
             G
Don't know where it goes
 D                A              Em   G    D    A
But its home to me and I walk alone
 
Em          G
I walk this empty street
D           A              Em
On the boulevard of broken dreams
            G
Where the city sleeps
    D              A              Em    G   D 
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
        A             Em    G   D
I walk alone  I walk alone
         A5 (3 + 4)    B5 (+)
I walk alone  I walk a...
 
CHORUS:
C5    G5         D5            E5
  My shadows the only one that walks beside me
C5   G5      D5              E5
  My shallow heart’s the only thing that's beating
C5     G5      D5               E5
  Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
C5     G5          B5 (5 strums)
  Till then I'll walk alone
 
Em  G      D     A      Em
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
   G       D     A      Em
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
 
Em            G
I'm walking down the line
D                 A              Em
That divides me somewhere in my mind
        G
On the border line 
D                 A              Em   G    D    A
of the edge and where I walk alone
 
Em       G
Read between the lines
D                     A                 Em
what's messed up and every thing's all right
           G
Check my vital signs
D                 A                 Em   G  
to know I'm still alive and I walk alone
 
D          A          Em   G 
I walk alone I walk alone
D         A5 (3 + 4)    B5 (+)
I walk alone I walk a...
 
CHORUS
 
Em  G      D     A      Em
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
   G       D    
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah 
         A5         B5
I walk alone I walk a...

Em          G
I walk this empty street
D           A              Em
On the boulevard of broken dreams

And I'm the only one and I walk a…
