Subject: NEVER LET ME DOWN by Depeche Mode

 

 

Never Let Me Down

(words & music by Martin L. Gore)

 

 

Before I transcribe this I have to acknowledge VIKTOR HOLUBEK (email:

holubek@managr.fm.uniba.sk). I figured out the keyboard configuration from

his chord progressions right here at the same site. All I am just doing is

adding on to his input.

 

The intro is:

 

G riff

 

E -3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||

B --------------------------||

G --------------------------||

D --------------------------||

A --------------------------||

E --------------------------||

 

 

The Riff 1 chords and lines are:

 

Dm C F D#

 

E ---------1---|---------1---|-------------|----------------|

B --3--1-3---3-|--3--1-3-----|---------1---|----------------|

G -------------|-----------2-|--2--0-2---2-|--2--2--0-2-0---|

D -------------|-------------|-------------|--------------3-|

A -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|

E -------------|-------------|-------------|----------------|

 

 

The Riff 2 chords (featured at the end of the chorus and mostly at the end of

the verse when the song goes into the Cm, Bb, Gm, F progression):

 

Dm C G riff

 

E ---------------|--8--6-8-----|-3--1-3---3-3--3--1-3-1-3-||

B --3--1-3--3-1--|----------8--|--------------------------||

G ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||

D ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||

A ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||

E ---------------|-------------|--------------------------||

 

 

For the chorus (the Cm part), the keyboard plays:

 

Cm Bb Gm F

 

E -----8-----8-----|-----6-----6-----|-----------------|-----------3---3-||

B ---8---8-----8---|---6---6-----6---|-----8-----8-----|-----6---6---6---||

G -5-------5-----5-|-3-------3-----3-|---7---7-----7---|---5---5---------||

D -----------------|-----------------|-5-------5-----5-|-3---------------||

A -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||

E -----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||

 

 

Those are basically all the keyboard lines. The lyrics are:

 

Dm C G riff

I~m taking a ride with my best friend

Dm C G riff

I hope he never lets me down again

Dm C

He knows where he~s taking me

Gm Bb

Taking me where I want to be

Dm C G riff

I~m taking a ride with my best friend

 

 

Riff 2: Dm C G riff

 

Cm Bb

We~re flying high

Gm F

We~re watching the world pass us by

Cm Bb

Never want to come down

Gm F

Never want to put my feet back down on the ground

 

 

Riff 1: Dm C F D#

 

Dm C G riff

I~m taking a ride with my best friend

Dm C G riff

I hope he never lets me down again

Dm C

Promises me I~m as safe as houses

Gm Bb

As long as I remember who~s wearing the trousers

Dm C G riff

I hope he never lets me down again

 

 

Riff 2: Dm C G riff

 

Cm Bb

We~re flying high

Gm F

We~re watching the world pass us by

Cm Bb

Never want to come down

Gm F

Never want to put my feet back down on the ground

 

 

Dm C A Gm

Dm C A Gm

 

Dm C

Never let me down

A Gm

Never let me down

Dm C

Never let me down

A Gm

Never let me down

Dm C

See the stars they~re shining bright

A Gm

Everything is alright tonight...

 

 

For playing guitar, I highly suggest you to play the ending chords in this

manner, as it does add gloom to the song:

 

Dm C A Gm

 

E -5--|-x--|-5--|-6--|

B -6--|-5--|-5--|-8--|

G -7--|-5--|-6--|-7--|

D -7--|-5--|-7--|-5--|

A -5--|-3--|-7--|----|

E ----|----|-5--|----|

 

 

And that is it.
