Intro: Em  D  G

Em              D                 G
I was scared of dentists and the dark
Em              D                 G
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Em         D                    G
Oh all my friends are turning green
       Em              D               G
You're the magicians assistant in their dreams


  Em     D         G
Uh oooh oh oooh oooh
Em         D               G 
Oh oooh oh oooh and they come unstuck
Em     D                     G
Lady, runnin' down to the riptide
G                  Em
Taken away to the dark side
D               G
I wanna be your left hand man
       Em       D                         G
And I love you when you're singin' that song and
                      Em
I gotta lump in my throat cos
D                          G
You're gonna sing the words wrong


Em                 D                   G
There's this movie that I think you'll like
     Em             D                G
This guy decides to quit his job and head to New York City
      Em       D           G
This cowboy's running from himself
Em                D              G
She's been living on the highest shelf


  Em     D         G
Uh oooh oh oooh oooh
Em         D               G 
Oh oooh oh oooh and they come unstuck
Em     D                     G
Lady, runnin' down to the riptide
G                  Em
Taken away to the dark side
D               G

Em           D               G
I just gotta, I just gotta know
Em             D                G
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
Em          D              G
I just gotta, I just gotta know
Em              D                 G 
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way


   Em         D               G 
I swear she's destined for the screen
Em               D                G    
Closest thing to Michelle Phipher that you've ever seen oh

  1. fluent_gay

    -3, capo on first fret

  2. Elysia Jackson

    If you don’t have a capo, you can do Am, G, C for the chord progression instead. It’s easier and still sounds amazing!

  3. I use dduudd to the original rhythm of the song and I use Am instead of Bbm G instead of Db and C instead of Ab

  4. ive been wanting to play this forever but all i found was a easy one i love this tab :3

  5. really good song! -1

    strum:ddudu
