D                  A

Sometimes I feel

          Bm              F#m  G
Like I don't have a partner

D                   A
Sometimes I feel

       Bm         G
Like my only friend

          D      A
Is the city I live in

       Bm     F#m  G
The city of angels

D            A
Lonely as I am

     Bm         G    Dmaj7 (x2 measures)
Together we cry

    D                  A
I drive on her streets

           Bm              F#m  G
'Cause she's my companion

    D                       A
I walk through her hills

                  Bm              G
'Cause she knows who I am

       D                     A
She sees my good deeds

           Bm              F#m  G
And she kisses me windy

D            A
I never worry

          Bm     G    Dmaj7 (x2 measures)
Now that is a lie

Chorus
   Em                  D

I don't ever want to feel

A        Em
Like I did that day

            Em              D
Take me to the place I love

A           Em
Take me all the way
   Em                  D

I don't ever want to feel

A        Em
Like I did that day

            Em              D
Take me to the place I love

A           Em
Take me all the way

It's hard to believe

That there's nobody out there

It's hard to believe

         Bm      G
That I'm all alone

       D             A
At least I have her love

        Bm      F#m  G
The city she loves me

D            A
Lonely as I am

     Bm           G    Dmaj7 (x2 measures)
Together we cry

Under the bridge downtown

Under the bridge downtown

5 Comments for Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under the Bridge

  1. Dave says:

    Ebmaj7 chord? I find playing Eb or Cm a little more accurate> Am I right or wrong?

    • Rob Hampton says:

      Hey Dave.  First of all, this is an arrangement for solo acoustic guitar.  The chord names are accurate, but Frusciante plays this with no capo.  All but advanced guitarists will find especially the intro to be more manageable using open chords with capo 2.  This capo position works well for all but the ending, where that pesky Ebmaj7 comes in (it’s actually Fmaj7, but we call it Ebmaj7 at Capo 2).  That’s the right chord, but the lowest Eb bass note is super-high.  I think it sounds best if you play the F in 10th position (relative to the nut) using an A-shaped barre chord, and then the Ebmaj7 two frets lower, also with an A-shaped barre.  Hope this helps.
