Hey guys! I love this song and I really like to tab out versions that can be 
played along with the song. Here's my best go at it - Enjoy! 

Capo II

All instructions and chords relative to capo


E                         A
Woke up in London yesterday
                              C#m
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
                        B
Don't really know how I got here
                          E
I got some pictures on my phone
                                   A
New names and numbers that I don't know
                               C#m
Addressed to places like Abbey Road
                                   B
Day turns tonight, night turns to whatever we want
                        E
We're young enough to say



E                       A
Ohhh this is gotta be the good life, this is gotta be the good life 
C#m                      B
This could really be a good life, good life
    E                              A
Say ohhh got this feeling that you can't fight
                     C#m 
Like this city is on fire tonight
                     B
Ohhh this could really be a good life
               E
A good good life 

(The acoustic guitar in the song plays this - only between Chorus and Verse): 

7th Fret (E)               
   -----------        
   | x | | | |        
   | | | | | |  Slide to 6th fret (D#) on the 2nd beat of the B chord
   | | x x | |
   -----------
E      A    C#m    B
ohhhh ohhh ohhhh ohhh   



E                         A
To my friends in New York, I say hello
                             C#m                  
My friends in LA they don't know
                                          B
Where I've been for the past few years or so
                          E
Paris, to China to Colorado
E                                         A
Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
                                           C#m
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
                                      B
We've got our stories but please tell me
                              E
What there's to complain about?



E                       A
When you're happy like a fool
                    C#m
Let it take you over
                     B
When everything is out...
(No Chords)
You gotta take it in



E                       A
Ohhh this is gotta be the good life, this is gotta be the good life 
C#m                      B
This could really be a good life, good life
    E                              A
Say ohhh got this feeling that you can't fight
                     C#m 
Like this city is on fire tonight
                            B
Ohhh this could really be a good life
               E
A good good life 

[7th Fret E & 6th Fret D# played underneath]

E      A    C#m    B
ohhhh ohhh ohhhh ohhh   x2



(No Chords)                                      
Hopelessly I feel like there might be something that I missed
Hopelessly I feel like the window closes oh so quick
Hopelessly I'm taking a mental picture of you now
'Cause hopelessly - the hopeless we have so much to feel good about



E                       A
Ohhh this is gotta be the good life, this is gotta be the good life 
C#m                      B
This could really be a good life, good life
    E                              A
Say ohhh got this feeling that you can't fight
                     C#m 
Like this city is on fire tonight
                            B
Ohhh this could really be a good life
               E
A good good life 



E      A    C#m    B
ohhhh ohhh ohhhh ohhh   x2

E                         A
To my friends in New York, I say hello
                             C#m                  
My friends in LA they don't know
                                          B

                          E

E                                         A
Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
                                           C#m
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
                                      B
We've got our stories but please tell me
                              E
What there's to complain about?


E All the way out

But otherwise this tab is great!

Thanks soo much for posting this up! :]
this song is amazing, and so are these chords :)
During the Bridge, I usually just do E all the way through, but lightly :)
