This is a really great song, and it's not too hard either. Madeleine Peyroux does a
better than Smith's, but they are both awesome.

I can't seem to locate a non-software based accurate tab of this song, so I'm doing it myself.

It starts with an Am7. You can play it open on the neck or barred if you like. I prefer
bar it, just because I'm not too used to the open neck fingering. Hold it for as many
as you want, then go into the lyrics:

Am7              F
Drink up, baby, stay up all night.
           C
With the things you could do,
     E7
You won't but you might.
       Am7
The potential you'll be,
       F
That you'll never see,
      C        E7         F
The promises you'll only make.
      Am7
Drink up with me now,
        F
And forget all about
       C
The pressure of days.
E7
Do what I say,
          Am7
And I'll make you okay,
      F
And drive them away
      C      E7            F
The images stuck in your head
F   G    *
People you've been before
          F     G     Am     Am/F#
That you don't want around anymore—
      F         G        *
That push and shove and won't bend to your will.
F                 Fm
  I’ll keep them still.
Am7               F
Drink up, baby, look at the stars.
      C
I'll kiss you again
E7
Between the bars,
            Am7
Where I'm seeing you there,
            F
With your hands in the air,
C            E7         F
Waiting to finally be caught.
      Am7
Drink up one more time,
     F
And I'll make you mine.
C
Keep you apart,
E7
Deep in my heart,
      Am7
Separate from the rest,
         F
Where I like you the best,
      C       E7          F
And keep the things you forgot.
        G    *
The people you've been before
          F     G     Am     Am/F#
That you don't want around anymore—
       F       G         *
That push and shove and won't bend to your will.
F                  Fm
  I'll keep them still.

Am7


* There's a riff here.. It's pretty simple, and all the notes recieve an even time. Just
to the record and you should be able to hear the rhythm.

e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|-----------------0---2----|
A|--0---0---2---3-----------|
E|--------------------------|

Note: for the Am/F#, I like to just reach across with my middle finger, which is on the
fret of the D string using my Am open fingering, and hit the second fret on the low E
The point of my finger holds down the string while the fleshy part mutes the A string. I 
this sounds better and is a lot easier than using some weird fingering to get a proper
with all six strings ringing.


There you go. I hope this tab has been helpful. It's accurate to the best of my
but it's my first tab, so I probably made a few mistakes. If anything isn't clear, or 
have A
or something, don't hestitate to email me.

not a bad tab, man. a few small mistakes, but you forgot to mention it's played a full step down. 4 stars.

i think that the Am/F# you have during the chorus is actually a C/G which looks like this
e|-----|
B|--1--|
G|--0--|
D|--2--|
A|--3--|
E|--3--|
