My sugar sweet is so attainable
Gm       Cm        Fm       A#              
This behaviour so unexplainable

The days just slip and slide

Great tab! Thanks for sharing!

Some may find it easier to play with the capo on the 1st, and transpose the song down 1 half step.

I think all the chords are played as if they were each a half-step higher, but with the guitar downtuned a half-step as well.
I say this because the Killers are somewhat notorious for having their instruments tuned down a half-step.
