Dawes - When The Tequila Runs Out
Transcribed by Dusty22884

This is how Dawes plays it acoustically on YouTube, here: https://youtu.be/ymIG3hfKH5Q?t=9m54s
Standard tuning; no capo

Gsus4add9 is only played once, during the interlude, otherwise the chords are the same through the whole song.
The chords are a little weird. Play them like this:

   Gadd9   Fadd9     C   Gsus4add9
E|---3-------3-------3------3
B|---0-------1-------1------1
G|---0-------2-------0------0
D|---0-------3-------2------0
A|---0-------x-------3------0
E|---3-------x-------x------3


[Intro]
Gadd9         Fadd9   C  (2x)

[Verse 1]
Gadd9                                 Fadd9              C   Gadd9     
Everyone that greeted me, was moving slow and drinking fast
Gadd9                                 Fadd9      C   Gadd9
I was lost inside a painting on a wall
Gadd9                              Fadd9                    C   Gadd9
A pretty baby with a cigarette, was looking for a place to ash
Gadd9                                     Fadd9   C   Gadd9
Stumbling toward the voices down the hall.

          Gadd9                            Fadd9            C   Gadd9
They had 'Thriller' on the stereo, not the album, just the song
Gadd9                                        Fadd9          C   Gadd9
For two dancers all in white, that no one really knew
Gadd9                                 Fadd9              C   Gadd9
There were a lot of leather jackets, there was a haircut reading palms
Gadd9                                 Fadd9              C   Gadd9
There was a line outside the bathroom that didn’t really move.

[Chorus]
Gadd9                                           Fadd9       C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
Gadd9                                           Fadd9       C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
Gadd9                                           Fadd9       C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
Gadd9                                           Fadd9       C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be feeling no pain

[Verse 2]
Gadd9                                                 Fadd9          C  Gadd9
Some girls forgot their bathing suits but felt like jumping in the pool
Gadd9                                  Fadd9     C   Gadd9
Right after making sure the underwater lights were on
Gadd9                               Fadd9           C   Gadd9
I was staring at a silhouette, I was blushing like a fool
Gadd9                                           Fadd9      C   Gadd9
Letting everyone pretend they hadn’t planned it all along

Gadd9                                           Fadd9          C   Gadd9
Then our host burst out of his bedroom, with his glasses slightly bent
Gadd9                                           Fadd9       C   Gadd9
He gets up on the diving board to tell us how he feels
Gadd9                       Fadd9       C   Gadd9
“Ladies and gentlemen we’ve begun the initial decent,
Gadd9                              Fadd9     C   Gadd9
And now it’s time to pull up on the wheel”

[Chorus]
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9    C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be feeling no pain

[Interlude]
Gadd9  Gsus4add9 Gadd9 Fmaj7 C   (2x)

[Verse 3]
         Gadd9                                Fadd9     C   Gadd9
On the floor of the living room, I saw my past life passed out
  Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
Laying next to her handsome new flame
      Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
I didn’t recognize his face too much, ‘cept for the grimace on his mouth
  Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
He looked a lot like me, he seemed to be in pain

    Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
I didn’t hear the picture window break, I didn’t see the rising sun
    Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
But I could feel the morning breeze
      Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C   Gadd9
Then I heard her tired voice speak up and say “I think this party’s done”
     Gadd9                                Fadd9     C   Gadd9
She asked if I could drive her home, and then she added please (Please)

[Chorus]
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C  
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C  
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C  
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be drinking champagne
          Gadd9                                 Fadd9     C
When the tequila runs out, we’ll be feeling no pain (noo)

[Outro]
Gadd9    Fadd9     C   
Gadd9    Fadd9     C
Gadd9    Fadd9     C Gadd9 (Let Ring)
