    E                  Gb     Abm
You sit there in your heart-ache
    B              E
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 E                Gb       Abm
To save you from your old ways
 B                           
You play forgiveness
E
Watch it now Here he comes


    E                       Gb Abm   
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus
            B                        
But he talks like a gentleman
 E
Like you imagined
              Gb Abm  
When you were young  


Interlude: B  E


 E            
Can we climb this mountain
 Gb     Abm
I dont know
 B                        E
Higher now than ever before
 E                           Gb      Abm 
I know we can make it if we take it slow
 B
Let's take it easy
  E
Easy now,  watch it go


 E                             Gb   Abm
We're burning down the highway sky- line
         B
On the back of a hurricane
 E 
That started turning
               Gb  Abm     B    E
When you were   young
               Gb  Abm     B   E
When you were   young


       E           Gb          Abm
And sometimes you close your eyes
              B                      E
And see the place where you used to live
                Gb  Abm     B     E
When you were    young


Interlude:
    E  Gb  Abm  B  E

                Dbm
They say the devil's water It ain't so sweet
                             Abm
You dont have to drink right now
                      B-?-
But you can dip your feet
                        Gb
Every once in a little while

Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 E                Gb       Abm
To save you from your old ways
 B                           
You play forgiveness
E
Watch it now Here he comes


    E                       Gb Abm   
He doesnt look a thing like Je-sus
            B                        
But he talks like a gentleman
 E
Like you imagined
              Gb Abm  
When you were young         
 B       
-talks like a gentleman-
 E
-like you imagined-
 E            Gb  Abm
When you were young


Interlude: B  E


                                  Gb   Abm    B   E
I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus      
                           Gb   Abm         B    E
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
                           E  Ebm  Dbm  B  Bbm  Abm  Gb   
But more than you'll ever know

  1. So I do a down down up up down pattern and instead of going back up when I see the G to Am, I go down twice. This basically applies to the most of the song. I find the song easiest to play on 1+. Also at that part when it says you can dip your feet- ?, I believe the rest of the line was in it. The entire line would be you can d up your feet in it. I hope someone finds this helpful.

  2. Strumming pattern?

  4. Sounds pretty good, much easier version tuned +1
