This is one of the song from the upcoming album "What About Now". They played it 
live a couple times and I thought it would be awesome to play.

I think you'll have to use the capo on the first to play along.
Have fun and please rate.

C                  F
Last night I had a dream 
C                   F
The dream I had was true 
C                  F
I fell through the stars 
C                   F
Went walking on the moon 
Am                     F              G
Burned like a thousand candles in her arms 

C                        F
The skin under my finger tips 
C                  F
Honeysuckle of her lips 
C               F                Am
Sweeter than a man deserves to taste 
F                          G
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say? 

    C F   C F  C F
But Amen. Amen Amen

C                       F
Last night we were born together 
C                       F
It was like we'd always been 
C                 F
She'll be with me forever 
C                  F
If I don't see her again 
Am                 F                 G
We poured the wine until our cup ran over 

C                  F
Unfolding like the mystery 
C                  F
Inside of her like poetry 
C                 F                  Am
A thousand horses running through my veins 
F                           G
Mercy, mercy what else can I say 

    C F   C F  C F
But Amen. Amen Amen

Am                 F
I laid down in her garden 
Am           F
Naked on her floor 
Am                  F
Windows up, the curtains blowing 
Am                  F
She don't lock the door 

 Am F C G  Am F  C G
Amen,      Amen 

C              F
At the banquet table 
C             F
A beggar at a feast 
C                            F
I felt her tongue between my lips 
C                  F
And I forgot to breath 
Am                       F                   G
We stayed there 'til the candles burned the carpet 

C                  F
Last night I had a dream 
C                   F
The dream I had was true 
C             F               Am
Mercy, mercy, what else can I say 
F                                  G
Mercy, mercy, I’ll kneel down and pray

 C F  C F
Amen, Amen 

 Am F C G  Am F  C G
Amen,      Amen

Thanks for the awesome reply. I would really love to play it like Richie but I'm just not that great a guitar player. But this song really struck me as one of the favorites together with That's what the water made me. So I got excited and played around on the guitar and this tab was born. It's great that you like :) Always up for more positive feedback.
