    Eye Of The Tiger

    Survivor

     

    Normally, when I “Dash-out” chord progressions, each chord name stands for one beat.  But in the intro progression, you’ll see I crammed more chords into a measure of music than would normally be legal.  See the tabs below if you find this confusing.

     

    Intro:

    / C5 - C5 Bb5 C5 / - - C5 Bb5 C5 / - - C5 G5 Ab5 / - - - - /

    / C5 - C5 Bb5 C5 / - - - C5 Bb5 / C5 - C5 G5 Ab5 / - - - - /

    Csus2            Ab

          Risin' up, back on the street

    Bb                                    Csus2

         Did my time, took my chances

    Csus2                                       Ab

          Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet

               Bb                            Csus2

    Just a man and his will to survive

     

    Csus2                         Ab

           So many times, it happens too fast

    Bb                                          Csus2

         You trade your passion for glory

    Csus2                                       Ab

          Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

    Chorus:

              F5                                     Eb (½)          Bb (½)

    It's the   eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight

              F5                               / C5 Bb5 - - /

    Risin'  up to the challenge of our ri - val

                 F5                                         Eb (½)            Bb (½)

    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

                   Fm5 (½)   Eb5 (½)       Ab5        

    And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the

     Cm (2, bass only)

    tiger

     

    Csus2                Ab

          Face to face, out in the heat

    Bb                                  Csus2

        Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry

    Csus2                                     Ab

         They stack the odds still we take to the street

              Bb                                 Csus2

    For the kill with the skill to survive

     

    Chorus

         Had the guts, got the glory

    Csus2                                    Ab
