Attempt at rhythm -

 

if you can't pick it up from the song, here's a valiant attempt..

 

Verse -  

G5   G5   x x x x    G5   G5   G5/E   G5   G5   x x x x

 

(repeat.. the x's represent muting the strings and stumming)

 

Same basic strumming technique throughout the rest of the song.

 

[Verse I]

                                   G5     G5/E   G5

 

          I am still living with your ghost

 

                 G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5

 

          Lonely and dreaming of the west coast

 

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

 

          I don't want to be your downtime

 

                 C5    D5     G5

 

          I don't want to be your stupid game

[Verse II]

                                   G5     G5/E   G5

 

          With my big black boots and an old suitcase

 

                 G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5

 

          I do believe I'll find myself a new place

 

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

 

          I don't want to be the bad guy

 

                 C5    D5     G5

 

          I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

 

          I just want to see some palm trees

 

          Go and try to shake away this disease

[Chorus]

 

                               C5

 

          We can live beside the ocean

 

          C5            D5          G5

 

          Leave the fire behind

 

          G5               E5     D5

 

          Swim out past the breakers

 

          D5          C5      G5

 

          Watch the world die

 

[Verse III]

                                   G5     G5/E   G5

 

          I am still dreaming of your face

 

                 G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5

 

          Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away

 

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

 

          I don't want to be your good time

 

                 C5    D5     G5

 

          I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

[Verse IV]

                                   G5     G5/E   G5

 

          I'll walk right out into a brand new day

 

                 G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5

 

          Insane and rising in my own weird way

 

                     G5/E               D5   E5    C5

 

          I don't want to be the bad guy

 

                 C5    D5     G5

 

          I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

 

          I just want to feel some sunshine

 

          I just want to find some place to be alone

[Chorus]

                               C5

 

          We can live beside the ocean

 

          C5            D5          G5

 

          Leave the fire behind

 

          G5               E5     D5

 

          Swim out past the breakers

 

          D5          C5      G5

 

          Watch the world die
