First tab. Didn't see any other ones with high reviews and I was looking around 
for chords so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm extremely confident all the chords 
are correct since I checked out a live video of them. Hope you guys enjoy.

[Intro/Riff]

E|----0----0--|  Repeat however many times
B|---2-2--2-2-|
G|--2---1-----|
D|------------|
A|------------|
E|------------|

Shake me down,
Not a lot of people left around,
Who knows now,
Softly laying on the ground, ooooh
Not a lot people left around, ooooh. ooooh


[Verse] 

(Can also be used in place of riff, or vice versa)

A          C#m
In my life, I have seen,
F#m          Bm
People walk into the sea
A          C#m
Just to find memories,
F#m          Bm
Plagued by constant misery,
A          C#m
Their eyes cast down,
F#m          Bm
Fixed upon the ground,
A          C#m F#m          Bm
Their eyes cast down


[Chorus]

E
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun


[Riff]

E|----0----0--|   
B|---2-2--2-2-|
G|--2---1-----|
D|------------|
A|------------|
E|------------|


[Verse]  

A C#m F#m Bm (Or play riff)

Shake me down,
Cut my hair on a silver cloud,
Broken sound,
Softly laying on the ground, ooooh
Not a lot people left around, ooooh, ooooh

In my past, bittersweet,
There's no love between the sheets,
Taste the blood, broken dreams,
Lonely times indeed,
With eyes cast down,
Fixed upon the ground,
Eyes cast down


[Chorus]

E
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun


[Bridge] 

A G# F#m E

E                                      A G# F#m E
Turn back now its time for me to let go,
E                                      A G# F#m E
Way down had to find a place to lay low,
E                                       
Lampshade turned around into a light post

A C#m G# x3 A C#m G# F#m (Repeat whole chord riff 2 times)


[Interlude]


E               G#
Walk around the corner,
A
Never saw it coming still,
E               G#
I try to make a move,
A
It almost stopped me from belief,
E               G#
I don't wanna know the future,
A
But I'm like rolling thunder


[Chorus type thing] 

D A C#m F#m

D                A
Even on a cloudy day,
C#m              F#m
Even on a cloudy day,
D                A
Even on a cloudy day,
C#m              F#m
Even on a cloudy day,
D                A
Even on a cloudy day,
C#m              F#m
Even on a cloudy day,
D                A
Even on a cloudy day


[Final Chorus]

E
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the-
E
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the-
E
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun
