John Mayer - Assassin

(This is in the Key of D - using the IV, V, vi chords)

Use barre chords for the best sound.

Intro - Bm - G - Bm - A

Verse 1
             Bm                       G
I work in the dead of night, when the roads are quiet...
              Bm               A
And no one is around, to track my moves
           Bm                         G
Racing the yellow lights, to find the gate is open...
                    Bm                 A
She's waiting in the room, I just step on through

Bm              G                                 Bm
Woah, oah... You get in, you get done and then you gone
You never leave a trace, or show your face, you get gone
         G                                          Bm
Should've turned around and left before the sun came up again

But the sun came up again

Bm - G - Bm - A

Verse 2
         Bm                         G                                  Bm

Enter the morning light, to find the day is burning the curtains and the wine

In a little white room
         Bm                      G                                  Bm

Though I'm not alone, her head is heavy on me, she's sleeping like a child

What could I do

Play Pre-Chorus Again

Bm                      G*               A*

 I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
Bm                              G*           A*

 I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
Bm                    G*           A*

 I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Bm                              G*          A*

 Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

Bm           G               Bm               A

 Suddenly I'm in over my head and I can hardly breathe
Bm                G                Bm               A
 Suddenly I'm floating over her bed and I feel everything
Bm              G              Bm                       A

 Suddenly I know exactly what I did, but I can’t move a thing
Bm                 G                   Bm 
 And suddenly I know exactly what I've done,
and what it's gonna mean to me, mean to me

   Bm                G                 Bm               A
I'm gooooooooone, I'm gooooooooone, I'm gooooooooone...

Play Chorus Again

Bm                       G*           A*

She's an assassin-n-n-n-n (3 times)

She's an assassin and she had a job to do

sounds perfect man thanks! just two suggestions if i may, each chorus line ends with an Em and the initial Bm in the bridge sounds better swapped with a Cmaj:) thanks for the chords mate!
