Intro: C  Cmaj7  C  C   

Chorus -x2-:
C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F 
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend

Verse:
C            
Every little bit goes a little of a long way.
                                              F
Life gets hard and I'm headed for the highway home, home
Am
Caught up in the middle of a headache and a heartbreak
                                                 G
Just when I thought I was clear of the mistakes, No, no oh oh


C
So tell me, tell me, tell me, what am I to do
F
I think that this life is darker than the view
Am
So help me, help me, help me, be a little more like you
G
When everything is falling, I'm gonna do the things you do

Chorus -x2-:
C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F 
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend

Shake it

Verse:
C
Everything is serious and everything is fatal, hat's what they tell you
                              F
And that's how they make you know, know
Am
I'm tired of the books and I'm tired of the tables, 

everything is made with the same old labels
G
No, no oh oh


C
So tell me, tell me, tell me, what am I to do
F
I think that this life is darker than the view
Am
So help me, help me, help me, be a little more like you
G
When everything is falling, I'm gonna do the things you do

Chorus -repeat-:
C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F 
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend, shake it

Shake it

  1. Yep, one of the only easy Imagine Dragons ones.
    Not that I’m bad, I know 11 chords, but I don’t know and can’t do chords like Dbm, Bbm, E, etc.

    But I can do E7. The hardest chord I know, but maybe D is sorta hard.
    Also it says no asking for strumming patterns…

  2. what’s the strumming pattern

  3. There is a typo… it’s that’s not hats… other than that, great!

  4. I found a way to play another part of the intro that sounds really good with the whole song!

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
