Back with a second tab! :) My mate loves this song and I couldnt find an accurate 
chord tab or one in the correct key so I thought I'd make one (: 
I've based it off the acoustic version Alex does backstage somewhere, here is the link: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrjvHx-sIb4
It's accurate to that, but is also able to be played along to the music video 
version because its in the correct key (When you tune half a step down!). Enjoy :D

REMEMBER TO TUNE A HALF STEP DOWN IN ORDER TO PLAY ALONG TO ANY RECORDINGS! 


G  Dm  C  Em  F C (F-C is a quick change, each taking only half the measure)

G                   Dm
 Lazy lover, find a place for me again 
    C                      Em
You felt it once before, I know you did 
         F  C
I could see it 

G                           Dm
 Whiskey princess, drink me under pull me in 
     C                              
You had me at come over boy 
  Em                 F C
I need a friend, I understand 

D

         Em7             C9

       G                        D 
Oh-oh, God I'm sick of sleeping alone
                 Em7                  C9
Youre salty like summer day, kiss the sweat away
        D

         Em7              C9

C9

G                              Dm
 You take me over, I throw you up against the wall 
      C                                  Em
We've seen it all before, but this one's different, 
       F C
It's deliberate.
G                             Dm
 You send me reeling, calling out to you for more 
    C                             Em
The value of this moment lives in metaphors 
        F C    
Yeah, through it all

Hey there, I'm not really one to write out strumming patterns, I just listen and imitate (or make up my own!). Can't really help you there :/ Just have a listen to the acoustic version (I posted the link up the top) and try that out :) Thanks for commenting and rating :D

You say to put it a half step down in tuning but then when you do the chords and such it recommends to bar it to a point where it'd just sound standard again.
