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
             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 

Interlude:
   Em G D A - x2 -
   - run run run -
   Em G D A  - x2 -
   - whistle -

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

A
Outrun my gun
Em                          G
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks

dizzy

played this in the school talent show and managed to scare all the teachers. woop

xfbn

They LET you????

emily

lmaooooooooooooooooo

Laney

yes

Gufufufuffff

that is litrally the vibe

Just Beginning!

Wow, I can’t believe you were allowed to play that. I mean it’s about a school shooting and this is not appropriate for school at all!

purpleuke

If schools are being shot up (and they are, constantly) then it is absolutely appropriate to TALK about at school. How could it not be? This is part of the problem

Chicken Nugget

No its not. In the 1980s through 90s kids, lets say New Jersey would come up to people with really nice shoes and they litery had air in them you would pump them up and if you didt’t give them your shoes the kid would shoot you. True story it happened to my mom once shes still alive and I’m only 13 dumbnut

Chicken Nugget

Haha that made me laugh

Caroline

for a cool and different strumming pattern I used Down-tap-up-up-tap-up. Kinda goes with the beat of the song. just if you wanna try something new :)

Naw fam

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

ABBYY

DDUUDU

jasmine_persaud

When I play it I usually use DTUUTU it’s pretty simple and makes it sound good

Max Boi

I personally think it sounds a little better with the chord progression Dm F C G

Ukulily

That is -2 by the way, so it is still the right progression, just in a different key

kennedy

no not really

thanos123@gmail.com

i personally like to replace A with Aminor. It just sounds better for me

LArney

I️ think it sounds better using Am instead of A

Gray

That’s what I was thinking

Mel

What is the strumming pattern for the whole song?!

no u

I use DUD it works well

Jaz

Personally I use: down, chuck, up, up, chuck and repeat it for the whole song

Your.Fellow.Weeb

I did DDUUD

Linn

personally D-TU-UTU is the pattern I uses with Dm F C G chords

ThisNerdJay

I use D ddu (with the 2 down strums and the one up strum being quicker)

Kaity - Lyn

I think this is a good song to play but it’s kinda dark lmao

Maria Read

Another strum pattern is down tap down tap
