Chords[edit]

by suuuupaadave, based on chord transcription by zuff

This is the revised version of Zuff's tab which fixes timing and chord names. Also included are some tabs of the intro chords as well as a chord figure in the bridge that may be confusing when written out. I included chord spellings below for all chords that do not appear in the tabs below. Also, "p.m." stands for "palm mute" where you rest your palm next to the bridge on the strings while you strum to give them a slightly dampened sound.

Intro:

Intro - Riff


Verse 1:
A (p.m.)
We start the story when Mom met Dad 
A (p.m.)                                      G
And they danced all night and he took her home 
A (p.m.)
It might have been all the wine they had 
A (p.m.)                                    
But they rolled the dice and won your genome 

Pre-Chorus 1:
         G            D            A            Bm
Then you grew and you grew and one day you were you
        G                D          A Asus4 A
And you looked like your father and mother 
               G      D	         A	    Bm
If you're looking for someone convenient to blame 
        G		               A
You can take your pick it's one or the other 

Chorus:
  A  G	          D
DNA, you're in my heart 
  A                 G	     D	     A
DNA, in fact you're in every part of my body 
          G		             A
Each cell has a nucleus, each nucleus has chromosomes 
    Intro                      Riff
And DNA, baby, that spells DNA 

Verse 2:

A (p.m.)
Guanine met Cytosine, fell in love 
A (p.m.)                             G
And then Thymine got busy with Adenine
A (p.m.)
They sent the messenger-RNA 
A (p.m.)			      A
To the ribosome to make more protein 

Pre-Chorus 2:
               G           D            A              Bm
And while it's killing you dead it will mess with your head 
             G            D              A        Asus4 A
And it's the light in the dark that will guide you 
         G	   D	         A	 Bm
It's the pages and pages of what you are like 
       G	                   A
In the giant book that's hidden inside you 

Chorus:
  A  G	          D
DNA, you're in my heart 
  A                 G	     D	     A
DNA, in fact you're in every part of my body 
          G		             A
Each cell has a nucleus, each nucleus has chromosomes 
    Intro                      Riff
And DNA, baby, that spells DNA 

Bridge:
           G       A7
If it says TGGTCGAAC 
                       Dadd4/A A7
Then you might get the cancer 
           G    Em   A7  
If it says GTCACGACAGG 
                       Dadd4/A   A
Then you shouldn't eat shrimp or nuts 
           G   Em  C9  Bb  A7
If it says TATACACATATCCTCGT 
                                          D
Then you'll probably wish that you didn't know 
(Guitar Solo!)
Verse 3:
A (p.m.)
The time will come when you're almost gone 
A (p.m.)                                  G 
And you try to guess but you'll never know 
A (p.m.)
You do your best and you soldier on 
A (p.m.)
Every day you're here till it's time to go 

Pre-Chorus 3:
        G               D	     A	         Bm
All the good things and bad that you do or don't have 
        G	     D               A Asus4 A
You can find out for sure if you got em 
              G         D	       A              Bm
But there's a spiraling staircase that you're falling down 
           G                       A
And you're nothing but dead at the bottom 


Chorus:
  A  G	          D
DNA, you're in my heart 
  A                 G	     D	     A
DNA, in fact you're in every part of my body 
          G		             A
Each cell has a nucleus, each nucleus has chromosomes 
    Intro                      Riff
And DNA, baby, that spells DNA

Solo[edit]

Tabs by suuuupaadave

I've tabbed out both guitars and adjusted the playing positions so you don't have to skip around as much. This is another one that I might want to do a mini lesson on if anyone feels like they want it. There are a lot of cool subtle articulations that I love about this one.
