    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...
