This is just a really simple version of this excellent song. But it sounds good to me, so here you go.

Leaders of the Free World - Elbow
Tabbed by Dave Anderson

Standard tuning - EADGBE

Intro - Em   B   Am   C

(C)         Em
I'm sick of working for a living
         B  
I'm just ticking off the days till I die
                 Am
Oh, I miss you Louise, yeah...
        C
And the sickest little pleasures keep me going in between pulling teeth


Em
Oh periscope up
                        B
I've been looking for a ladder
                            Am
I need to see the commander in chief
    C
And remind him what was passed onto me


    Em
Your mum don't sleep!
        B
And the friends you keep!
         Am               Em
I didn't raise a thief!
         B
I didn't raise a thief!
    Am
But the leaders of the free world
    G                               B
Are just little boys throwing stones
    Am
And it's easy to ignore
     G                                         B
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes

(Solo - Em  B  Am C)  


   Em
My thinking isn't driven
        B
But the music always gives me a lift
              Am
I'm so easy to please, yeah
      C
But I think we dropped the baton like the 60's didn't happen, oh no!

Em
Oh periscope up
                        B
Should be looking for a ladder
                               Am
I need to see the commander in chief
    C
And remind him what was passed onto me


Em
Your mum don't sleep!
        B
And the friends you keep!
         Am             Em
I didn't raise a thief!
         B
I didn't raise a thief!

    Am
But the leaders of the free world
    G                                B
Are just little boys throwing stones
    Am                 
And it's easy to ignore
             G                                  B
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes

    Am
But the leaders of the free world
    G                                B
Are just little boys throwing stones
    Am                 
And it's easy to ignore
             G                                  B
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes

Em                                        B
Passing the gun from father to feckless son
      Am                                            C
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young
Em                                        B
Passing the gun from father to feckless son
      Am                                            C
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young

Thanks for this great Tab! I am new to guitar, been playing three weeks, and this was the first song I've played from beginning to end. If only it were easier to play a B chord...
