All Dead All Dead

Words and Music by Brian May from the News of the World Album by Queen
All Dead All Dead chords were transcribed by Shane McDonald

 

The track All Dead All Dead is a bit of a tricky one to play if you are a beginner as the chords come thick and fast and there are a few unusual ones in there too, plus, there is a bass note arpeggio so lots for the fingers to do here. If you like the All Dead All Dead chords on this site please feel free share them…

All Dead All Dead Chords – Performance Notes

Note 1: At the end of each line of the verse there is an arpeggio run on the bass notes,
e.g. for the Dm of the verse, the arpeggio notes are  D^  A   F   D   D^  D
(I use the ^ symbol to signify the higher of the 2 D notes)
Have a listen to the song and you will hear this being played.

Note 2: The chords in the chorus are played as full and brightly as possible

All Dead, All Dead Lyrics

She came without a farthing
A babe without a name
So much ado about nothing
Is what she’d try to say

So much ado, my lover
So many games we played
Through every fleeted Summer
Through every precious day

All dead, all dead
All the dreams we had
And I wonder why I still live on
All dead, all dead
And alone, I’m spared
My sweeter half instead
All dead and gone
All dead

All dead, all dead
At the rainbow’s end
And still, I hear her own sweet song
All dead, all dead
Take me back again
You know my little friend’s
All dead and gone

Her ways are always with me
I wander all the while
But, please, you must forgive me
I am old but still a child

All dead, all dead
But I should not grieve
In time it comes to everyone
All dead, all dead

But in hope, I breathe
Of course, I don’t believe
You’re dead and gone
All dead and gone
