Looks like a lot of chords, but when you get the hang of it, its dead easy!

B             D#7
So who's that girl there?
  Emaj7
I wonder what went wrong
            B
So that she had to roam the streets
    D#7
She don't do major credit cards
  Emaj7
I doubt she does receipts
             C#m              F# E D#m C#m D#m
It's all not quite legitimate
B          D#7
And what a scummy man
     Emaj7
Just give him half a chance
            B
I bet he'll rob you if he can
    D#7
Can see it in his eyes, yeah
          Emaj7
That he's got a driving ban
             C#m            F# E D#m C#m D#m
Amongst some other offences
Gm                       D#m
  And I've seen him with girls of the night
    Gm                     D#m
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
Gm                       D#m
They're all infected but he'll be alright
             C#m      D#m           E F#m
Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know
                                     Bm
I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!


*This is where the song kicks off properly, the following chords are played quickly 
the main riff kicks in:

G, F#, Bm

Main Riff:

D--------024-|
A------22----|
E33222-------|  *the bass riff is the same as the guitar riff. There is no
guitar in the verse until the second verse

(bass guitar only)
Although you're trying not to listen
I bet your eyes are staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
Sorry love I'll have to turn you down

And oh he must be up to something
(guitar comes in, G, F#, Bm)
Want half a chance to show he's more than likely
I've got a feeling in my stomach
I start to wonder what his story might be
What his story might be

Chorus:
Em           F#m              Bm
They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Em         F#m Bm
Around here
    A  F#
Around


* main riff

G, F#, Bm
And look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous
And he don't have to say 'owt
She understands she's here to get picked up

          (now the main riff kicks in)
And she's delighted when she sees him
Pulling in and giving her the eye
Because she must be fucking freezing
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
She don't stop in the winter, no and...

Em           F#m              Bm
They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Em         F#m Bm
Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here
   A       F#
Around here
B         D#7
   What a scummy man
     Emaj7
Just give him half a chance
            B
I bet he'll rob you if he can
    D#7                          Emaj7
Can see it in his eyes that he's got a nasty plan
              C#m      D#m           E F#m
I hope you're not involved at all

B/D, Bb/D, B

* Thats it!! Scummy's probably gonna be another #1 single for the arctic monkeys -

SOME COMMENTS/CORRECTIONS

This does not appear to be correct although it's pretty close. Some of the chord names are wrong, and some of the voicings of the chords are wrong for the song.

- x6887x is not called D#7 - it's a D#m chord.
- the second chord in the song is not D#7, it's D#m - you got the shape right, although on the album version he does play the 6th string, so really it's x68876.

- I'm pretty sure it's not an Emaj7 but a C#m that it goes to at "i wonder what went wrong..." and "I doubt she does receipts.

Also - the Gm given at the part "I've seen him with girls of the night..." is again the shape is the right chord for the song - but it's the wrong name for the chord. that chord name G#m. Also - in the song the chord is played on the 11th fret - Am barre chord on 11th fret.

Also on the second last line of the first verse (Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know...) - last chord says F#m - I'm sure it's F#7 (which is the A7 shape on the 9th fret.

Apart from that, top song.
