-----------------------------------------------------------------
Americas Suitehearts Acoustic by Fall Out Boy
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:   J.P. Oliver (mrmoronicmind)
Email:   mrmoronicmind@gmail.com
Tuning:   Standard

There are lots of chords for this, none of them are correct.  Heres my completely
correct, easy to follow, epic fun sauce, simple to learn tab/chord sheet on this song.  THIS
IS NOT SOME CONVERSION OF THE ELECTRIC VERSION THAT I MADE UP!!!  This is the actual way
that Patrick Stump plays this live acoustic.  Im a college guitar major, and I know what
Im talking about, especially with such a simple song.  Enjoy, and go play it live.  Its
a crowd pleaser if you do it right.


[Intro]
Two Chords, A major and A+(A Augmented), played like this:
        Amaj                  A+
E|----X-X-X-X--------------X-X-X-X-----------------------------------------|
B|----2-2-2-2--------------2-2-2-2-----------------------------------------|
G|----2-2-2-2--------------2-2-2-2-----------------------------------------|
D|----2-2-2-2--------------3-3-3-3-----------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0--------------0-0-0-0-----------------------------------------|
E|----X-X-X-X--------------X-X-X-X-----------------------------------------|

This is a part everyone gets wrong.  Just play these chords back to back, and listen to
the song for the strumming pattern.  You should be able to find it on YouTube if you
dont already have it.  From here on out, this will be a chord chart you can easily
follow to play the song through.  And YES, the second chord in the chorus IS AN F#m AND 
NOT Bm!!!
I CANT STRESS THAT ENOUGH!!! If you play Bm there, it makes the singer sound out of
tune.  And we dont want the singer to sound off, do we?  That would ruin the whole song!


[Intro]
A       A+      A       A+ (Mute rhythmically with your palm)

[Verse 1]
               D                   F#m
You could have knocked me out with a feather
              Bm                                    A
I know you've heard this all before, but we're just Hell's neighbors
D                              F#m
Why, why, why won't the world revolve around me?
        Bm                     A
When my dreams, trees grow all over the streets

                 G                  Bm
But I don't know much about classic cars
         G                                     Bm
But I've got a lot of friends stuck on classic coke
           G
Down, set, one, Hut, hut, hike
          G...
Media Blitz


[Chorus]
LISTEN CLOSELY TO THE STRUMMING PATTERN! ITS VERY SPECIFIC!
                        ...D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G                 Bm A
I'm in love with my own sins
     G           A         D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G               Bm A G A
I'm in love with my own sins.


[Verse 2]
(mute in between the B5 chords. Make it rhythmic. Play at the same time as the
words rhythm. Sometimes Patrick just plays the root of the chord on a single string,
rather than the whole thing)

D              F#m
You can bow and pretend that
     B5     B5    B5   B5      B5 A
You don't, don't know you're   a     legend
D                       F#m              Bm
Time, time, time hasn't told anyone else yet
            A
Let my love loose again.

                 G                  Bm
But I don't know much about classic cars
         G                                     Bm
But I've got a lot of friends stuck on classic coke

           G
Down, set, one, Hut, hut, hike
          G...
Media Blitz


[Chorus]
                        ...D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G                 Bm A
I'm in love with my own sins
     G           A         D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G               Bm A G A (This leads A merges back into the intro proggression)
I'm in love with my own sins.


[Bridge]
(Same as intro, sing over it)

A       A+      A       A+

              A                   A+
You could have knocked me out with a
             A                    A+ (mute rhythmically with you palm)
I know you've heard this all before


[Chorus]
                        ...D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G                 Bm A
I'm in love with my own sins
     G           A         D
Lets hear it for America's Suitehearts!
     F#m
But I must confess
       G                 Bm A G A
I'm in love with my own sins.


[Outro]
D
Let's hear it, oh, let's hear it
F#m                   D|---0h2-----------|
Let's hear it, oh, let's...
G            Bm A G A D
Suitehearts (long vocal trill through the quick chord changes)

D

I play around with D major suspensions on the end of this song.  You can do that or end
it strong with the same rhythm like Patrick.  Sounds good either way!  Make sure to

Hey mr college guitar major, I'm pretty sure it's Bm in the chorus, even though you point that out above and (with some pretty bad language) in a comment of yours on some other tabs. Just try playing it along with that live youtube version you refer to, F#m is just something completely different. And if you wont listen to so many people telling you it's Bm (even though already that should maybe make you think that you might possibly be wrong anyway) just think about it theoretically: this song is in D major, F#m is the third step of that, Bm would be the parallel minor chord: as you say, this song is kept very simple, the simpler version would be using the minor parallel chord.
And if you disagree with that (which I could actually understand, as it's just some subjective opinion): compare the first line of the verse with the first one of the chorus - it should be the same, according to you, and it just definitly isn't.

Another point: I'm very sure it's Em instead of G in the first two lines of the prechorus. But I guess, as you are a college guitar major, you're never wrong, only others are, at least that's what you sound like.

I'm pretty sure you'll just say I'm wrong and I'm an idiot, as you point that out above which is a shame, as besides these minor corrections your version is pretty neat.

The only thing I don't like is how you comment on other people's tabs. If they did a bad job - of course you shouldn't tell them they did a great one. There's two possibilities to comment on a tab: say it's a good one, or point out, why it's bad, but with some constructive criticism. Calling them names for trying to make a tab and getting it wrong is not gonna make the next one better. It's just sad to see someone actually getting mad because of something unimportant as a tab...

Have a nice day!
