Hey guys. This is my first tab. Veeeerrry easy song in terms of the chord 
progression, it's a four chord song repeated over and over. So here you go. Have 
fun and play well.

Foster The People
Pumped Up Kicks
Time Signature - 4/4
Standard Tuning, no capo


F G# Eb Bb (x4... One bar for each chord)

Verse 1

F                        G#
Robert's got a quick hand
      Eb                            Bb
He'll look around the room he won't tell you his plan
F                     G#
Got a rolled cigarette
Eb                            Bb  
Hangin' out his mouth, he's a cowboy kid
      F                      G#
Yeah, found a six-shooter gun
       Eb                        Bb
In his dads closet hidden with a box of fun things
F                     G#
I don't even know what
         Eb              Bb
But he's comin' for you, yeah he's comin for you, hey

Chorus (x2)

F                           G#
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run
Outrun my gun
F                           G# 
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run
Faster than my bullet                

Verse 2

Daddy works a long day
He'll be coming home late, he's coming home late
And he's bringing me a surprise
Cos' dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice
I've waited for a long time
The slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger
I reason with my cigarette
And say your hair's on fire you must have lost your wits yeah

Bridge (Not really much of a bridge)

Run, run, run, run (You can figure that part out no problems)

-Whistling line- (Best part of the song. Same chords. All the same bla bla)

Chorus (x4)

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run
Outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run
Faster than my bullet 

And there you have it. Great song. Decided to figure this out when I saw there 
weren't any chords out there for it yet. But I'll put that down to the fact that 
this song is easy for anyone to figure out by themselves. :)

Maiz&Guitar, that's only if you use a capo. He has every chord correct except F should be Fm. Otherwise he's fine
