Intro - x4 -: Em G D A -4X-

Verse:
Em                       G
Robert's got a quick hand
      D                             A
He'll look around the room he won't tell you his plan
Em                    G
Got a rolled cigarette
D                             A  
Hangin' out his mouth, he's a cowboy kid
      Em                     G
Yeah, found a six-shooter gun
       D                         A
In his dads closet hidden with a box of fun things
Em                    G
I don't even know what
         D                         A
But he's comin' for you, yeah he's comin for you, hey

Chorus - x2 -:
Em                          G
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
             D
You'd better run, better run
A
Outrun my gun
Em                          G
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
             D
You'd better run, better run
A
Faster than my bullet                

Verse:
Em                    G
Daddy works a long day
         D                      A
He'll be coming home late, he's coming home late
         Em                    G
And he's bringing me a surprise
     D                                A
Cos' dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice
     Em                     G
I've waited for a long time
    D                          A
The slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger
  Em                      G
I reason with my cigarette
             D                            A
And say your hair's on fire you must have lost your wits, yeah

Chorus - x2 -:
Em                          G
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

You'd better run, better run
A
Outrun my gun
Em                          G
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
             D
You'd better run, better run
A
Faster than my bullet

  1. I think it sounds better without the capo

  2. strum pattern for the chorus:
    Am : DD UDU UD
    C: UUU DUD
    G: UDUD
    D: UDUD (for “faster than my bullet is:UU DUDU)

  3. I think the A chord for “faster than my bullet” sounds wierd with the singing part. I sort of think it should go back to Em.

  4. This tab would be much better with Bm instead of Em. If you wanted to start with Em the progression would be: Em C G D

  5. Master6989

    Great Tab for 4/20
