Intro: Esus4E [x3]

Verse 1 Chords:
E                                       Esus4  E
The Eiffel Tower built to smaller scale
                                     Esus4  Amaj7      
The freshest oxygen I'd ever inhale
                                                   E   Esus4  E
I tapped a bottle against the safety rail killing time

Verse 2 Chords:
E                                       Esus4  E
And you were like a walking compliment
                                       Esus4  Amaj7
Tall in stature and exceptionally read
                                          E  Esus4 E [w/Riff 1]
In dummy glasses and a cardigan, oh, come on
          G                           Amaj7                      E      Esus4 E
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers and the waitresses around


Verse 3: (use verse 2 chords)
You said that all these things you've learned to ignore
The hidden cameras on the casino floor
And what gets paid for behind hotel doors, oh, come on
Pretend every slot machine is a robot amputee waving hello


Post-Verse:
[Riff 1]           G
       The people stare into their eyes
          Amaj7                                E  Esus4 E
And they feed them little bribes and then they go


Interlude: EEsus4 [x3]


Bridge: 
F#m                 G#       F#m
   The never-ending twilight 
                        C#m      B     F#m
In a basement where the sun has never spilt
                       G# 
You said that you were lonely
    C#m     B           F#m               E  Esus4  E  Esus4 E
And then we kissed like lonely people do

Verse 4: (use verse 2 chords)
You said this city has a beating heart
That pushes people down the boulevard
And they're all hoping for a wish fulfilled
In a desert for a dollar bill
Those foolish dreams, you know they plague me still, oh, come on
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers and the waitresses around
And oh so empty were the faces of the dealers and the waitresses around

Outro:
[Riff 1]       C#m  G#  Amaj7  E  F#m  E
      Their empty.....................

I think this tab is right on, except for the E to Esus4 bit. When Ben Gibbard plays this part he keeps his E chord shape and slides it up so that it's 077600 - I think it's like an A major 7 chord, but I'm not so great at naming chords.

Check out the tab under Ben Gibbard's solo material called Casino Blues -- it's an earlier version of this song, and that tab doesn't seem to be as accurate as this one, except for the E to Amaj7 riff.

You should slide the E shape up to the 7th fret

it's basically the same as an Esus4, or also could be called a A/E. do that for all references to an Amaj7
