The World Ain’t Slowing Down by Ellis Paul
Chords by Jolo
A/N: not a 100% accurate but still works for me. Listen to the song carefully so you’ll 
the whole picture
Capo on 4th fret
(C-Em-A5-G)= is a bit that is played after some of the lines of the song in quick succession)

[Intro] G-D-Am-D

[Verse 1]
G                  Am                       C    D (C-Em-A5-G)
I  found  you  sitting  on  a  suitcase  crying
G                          Am7                   C  (C-Em-A5-G)
Beneath my feet,  I feel the rumble of a subway train
G                  Am7                                      C D (C-Em-A5-G)
I laugh out loud, 'cause it's the one thing I hadn't been trying
G
The train came in breathless,
Am
The passenger’s restless
          C                       D
You say, "Baby, you'll never change"

[Chorus]
                      G                             Am7
You    gotta   get   gone,   you   gotta   get   going
        C                                D
Hey,   the   world   ain't   slowing   down   for   no one
G                         Am7           C      D
It's   a   carnival    calling   out   to   you
                         G                             Am7
It   sounds   like   a   song,   Hits   you  like   scripture
                C                            D
You paint the picture , With   colors   squeezed    from   your   hand
                                                                            G   
                                     Am7                           C
Weren't   you   the   kid   who  just  climbed   on   the   merry-go-round
                      D                         G      Am7
Hey   look,   the   world   ain't   slowing   down
  C                  D                   G   Am7
He-Hey,  hey,   the world ain't slowing down
 C      (C-Em-A5)
Hey, hey...

[Verse 2]
G                                  Am7
Out   on   the   sidewalk,    Pigeon's   do   the   moonwalk
C                                         D  (C-Em-A5)
I'll   be   dancing   like   Fred   Astaire
G                                           Am7
The   lamppost's   are   rocking,  The   whole  town's   talking
       C                     D (C-Em-A5-G)
Like a fool in a barber's chair
G                                         Am7
And   I   get   the   sensation,   The   joy   and   frustration
              C                  D  (C-Em-A5-G)
Like being caught by a tropical rain
G
Freedom can numb you,
Am7
When there's no place to run to
C                        D
It feels just like Novo cane

[Chorus]
                      G                             Am7
You    gotta   get   gone,   you   gotta   get   going
        C                                D
Hey,   the   world   ain't   slowing   down   for   no one
G                         Am7           C      D
It's   a   carnival    calling   out   to   you
                         G                             Am7
It   sounds   like   a   song,   Hits   you  like   scripture
                C                            D
You paint the picture , With   colors   squeezed    from   your   hand
                                                                            G   
                                     Am7                           C
Weren't   you   the   kid   who  just  climbed   on   the   merry-go-round
                      D                         G      Am7
Hey   look,   the   world   ain't   slowing   down
  C                  D                   G   Am7
He-Hey,  hey,   the world ain't slowing down
 C      (C-Em-A5)
Hey, hey...

[Bridge]
G
You packed up all your handbags,
 Em
Throwing   off   the   sandbags
C                                      D
I   let   go   and   you   stepped   free
G                                        Am7
I   didn't   want   to   loose   you ,   you said you   didn't  choose   to,
C                           D (C-Em-A5)
It's just how your karma came."
 G
But thanks for the vision,
Am7
And the twenty-twenty wisdom
C                                D
It hit me like a south-bound train

                      G                            Am7
You    gotta   get   gone,   you   gotta   get   going
         C                                D
Hey,   the   world   ain't   slowing   down   for   no one
G                         Am7          C            D
It's   a   carnival    calling   out   to   you   (it’s callin’ out to you)
                          G                             Am7
It   sounds   like   a   song,   Hits   you  like   scripture
               C                            D
You paint the picture , With   colors   squeezed    from   your   hand
                                                                            G   
                                  Am7
Weren't   you   the   kid   who  just  climbed   on   the   merry-go
C
Weren't you the kid
               D
Who just climbed on the merry-go--
G
Weren't you the kid
               Am7                     C
Who just climbed on the merry-go-round
                D                  G    Am7
Hey look, the world ain't slowing down
   C  (C-Em-A5)                              G
A-Hey, hey,     the   world   ain't   slowing down
Am7                      C  (C-Em-A5)                G
Hey, hey,  it's   a   big,   blue   world
Am7
It's   a   big,   blue   world
(C-Em-A5  x3)                         G
Rock    my    big,    blue    world

It's a pretty good tab! I'm not entirely sure, but I read somewhere that the original tuning is Open B. Might as well try that.
