Acorde de The Great Divide - Queensryche

Letra de The Great Divide

The G and F chords in the song are actually played as E chord shapes on the

second and fourth frets respectively, with the other strings left open, thus:


F: 033200

G: 055400

Other chords used:


Am (5th fret) : 577655

C : 335553

C#maj7 : 446564

If you're playing this acoustic, you can also use open chords:

Am (1st fret) : 002210

C : 332010

Guitar 1 plays this throughout the intro and choruses:



G|--5b-(let ring)--6b-3b--(let ring)--|




Guitar 2 plays the following chords during the intro and the choruses:

Am(Vth fret) C F5 G5 (twice) and then end on F5

With that out of the way, let's get to the song itself:

The Great Divide

Lyrics: Geoff Tate

Music: Michael Wilton (who once again constructs a truly memorable song out

of simple elements!)


Guitar 1 plays alone for 2 bars.

Then Guitar 2 (along with bass and drums) enters for another 2 bars,

finally ending on an F5 chord (let it ring!)

Verse 1:

(Strum C#maj7 once each time and let ring, until the "south", when you should

switch to a distorted tone and play F5 continuously.)


I'd reconciled my anger, got outside of danger,


I was waiting for some signal, a sign from angels.



When the tide turns against you


it's a strange sensation, a revelation of imagination.


I could change my course and face the flow,

C#maj7 F5

reap the seeds that I had sewn or follow that old river south

F5 G5

Here's what I found out...


Guitar 1 plays exactly the same riff as the intro.

Guitar 2 plays distorted chords as follows:

Am C F5 G5 Am C F5 G5

I was standing on the Great Divide looking out across America.

Am C F5 G5

Trying to find my truth, define it for myself.

Am C F5

I died the day when I saw this place.

F5 G5 F5 G5

I saw what I could lose.

Verse 2 is exactly the same as verse 1:


A very simple mechanism separates the fool from wisdom.


The lines between us are not real.


Conditioning is what makes us feel ignorant.


And apathy will feed our hate.

So we can never give in.

Chorus and end:

Am C F5 G5 Am C F5 G5

There I was standing at the Great Divide, looking for the truth in America.

Am C F5 G5

For all that time I searched, when I closed my eyes,

Am C

I found the thing I was looking for.

F5 G5 F5 G5 F5

I had it all the time.

and then repeat:

So are we standing at the Great Divide?

Is there hope for America?

Take the flag we wave, the freedoms that we sing.

Without respect for one another,

it doesn't mean a thing....
