All My Life | Chords + Lyrics


Intro

||: G5 :||

Verse 1

||: G5 | G5 :||
All my life, I’ve been searching for something,
something never comes, never leads to nothing.
Nothing satisfies but I’m getting close.
closer to the prize at the end of the rope.
All night long I dream of the day,
when it comes around and it’s taken away.
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most,
| G5 | G5 Bbadd#9 |
feel it come to life when I see your ghost.

Instrumental 1

Verse 2

||: Gm | Gm Amadd4 | Gm | Gm Bbadd#9 :||
Calm down, don’t you resist. You’ve such a delicate wrist.
And if I give it a twist. Something to hold when I lose my grip.
Will I find something in there, to give me just what I need?
| Gm | Gm Amadd4 | Gm | Gm |
Another reason to bleed. One by one hidden up my sleeve.
| G5 | G5 |
One by one hidden up my sleeve.

Chorus 1

Hey, don’t let it go to waste, I love it but I hate the taste,

Hey, don’t let it go to waste, I love it but I hate the taste,

weight keeping me down.

Verse 3

||: Gm | Gm Amadd4 | Gm | Gm Bbadd#9 :||
Will I find a believer? Another one who believes.
Another one to deceive. Over and over, down on my knees.
If I get any closer, and if you open up wide.
| Gm | Gm Amadd4 | Gm | Gm |
And if you let me inside. On and on, I got nothing to hide.
| G5 | G5 |
On and on, I got nothing to hide.

Hey, don’t let it go to waste, I love it but I hate the taste,

All night long, I dream of the day,
when it comes around and it’s taken away.
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most,

Then I’m done, done, on to the next one.

All My Life Chords: Learn the progressions!


This massive tune is off Foo Fighters‘ fourth album, One By One. In March 2005 it was voted #94/100 Greatest Guitar Tracks, not bad for a drummer!

Dave Grohl’s technique is the closest you get to play drums on the guitar, check out the verse for a perfect example of this technique. The result is a super tight rhythm section that drives the melody, as usual, Dave Grohl nails it.

All My Life is the only tune I know of that uses the Gm chord, as an open-position chord. This happens during the verse, where the shape is then moved up to an Am, back to Gm, and then to a Bb.

As the open D string is maintained, the chords for All My Life’s verse become:

| Gm | Gm Amadd4 | Gm | Gm Bbadd#9 |

The chorus starts on chord IV, an Eb before it goes back to VI (Gm, now a G5). C/E is IIx, F is V and Bb is chord I.

| Eb | Eb | G5 | G5 |
| C/E | F5 | Bb5 |
