There are only a couple of tabs on here, so I thought I would make one for the acoustic 
version of this song that is correct.

The live amplified version has completely different guitar parts, so this is just the 
chords they use for the acoustic version.

Standard tuning.

Chords used: Am, C, F, Dm, G.

Keith plays the F like this: (x03210)

The strumming pattern is (Down, Up, pause, Up, Up, Down, Up) It helps to watch a YouTube 
video of the band playing this acoustically to get the jist.

Keith and Chris play it with 2 guitars, Keith plays the chords I have tabbed, Chris 
plays the power chord version.


VERSE 1:

Am                             C
Don't be alarmed, it's not the end of the world
          F                      Dm
If we're breaking the rules it's fine
F                     Dm                   Am
I disregard this kind of problem all the time

Am                        C
It's not as if it's gonna kill anyone
              F                        Dm
If there's no victim then there's no crime
F                         Dm                       Am   G
Just draw another if you think we've crossed the line

CHORUS:

F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
C
Rules don't stop me, we'll get around it
F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
G      Dm    C        Dm
Don't stop me, don't stop me

VERSE 2:

For this first half of this verse, strum each chord and then quickly mute all the 
strings (whilst still strumming). It's what Keith plays and it sounds great.

Am                             C
Although it may seem unconventional sometimes
F                        Dm
Indiscretion is worth a try
F                     Dm                   Am
If you just play along I promise we'll be fine

BACK TO NORMAL STRUMMING PATTERN

Am                             C
So leave your hang-ups back at the door
F                                 Dm
When you and I are down on the floor
F                                 Dm                            
Am    G
Well you'll know what to do about it (You know what to do about it)

CHORUS:

F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
C
Rules don't stop me, we'll get around it
F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
G      Dm    C        Dm
Don't stop me, don't stop me

Am x 4

BRIDGE:

F                        G
It's not as bad as they say
                     Am
If this is such a mistake
                     C
Why does it make you so damn happy?
F                        G
This is no time to behave
                          Am
Let's both get carried away
                           C (mute after the C)
If there's a price to be paid
It won't stop me

CHORUS:

F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
C
Rules don't stop me, we'll get around it
F
Rules don't stop me, forget about it
G      Dm    C        Dm
Don't stop me, don't stop me

G        Dm   C   G
Don't stop me, don't stop me
Dm          C        Dm           G     Am
They don't stop me, they don't stop me
