VERSE 1-
G
Shakin' up is all that we know
F
Usin' our bodies up as we go
G
I'm wakin' up to a fantasy
F
The shades all around aren't the colors we used to see

e|---------------3----------3---------0--------------------------------
B|---------------3----------3---------1--------------------------------
G|------------0----------0---------2-----------------------------------
D|---------2----------0---------2--------------------------------------
A|------3----------2---------0-----------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------
      Cadd9        G/B       Amin(open)
Broken ice still melts in the sun
F                                             G
And ties that are broken can't often be one again

e|---------------3----------3---------0--------------------------------
B|---------------3----------3---------1--------------------------------
G|------------0----------0---------2-----------------------------------
D|---------2----------0---------2--------------------------------------
A|------3----------2---------0-----------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------
      Cadd9        G/B       Amin(open)
We're soul alone, and soul really matters to me
F
Take a look around 

CHORUS 1
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G      
I'm out of time
Amin       G6        Fmaj7             E
But I'm out of my head when you're not around 
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G
I'm out of time 
Amin       G         Amin              G
But I'm out of my head when you're not around
F          Amin(add11)/D        G         Amin

VERSE 2
G
Reachin' out for something to hold
F
Lookin' for a love where the climate is cold
G
Manic moves, and drowsy dreams
F 
Or (We're) livin' in the middle between the two extremes

e|---------------3----------3---------0--------------------------------
B|---------------3----------3---------1--------------------------------
G|------------0----------0---------2-----------------------------------
D|---------2----------0---------2--------------------------------------
A|------3----------2---------0-----------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------
      Cadd9        G/B       Amin(open)
Smokin' guns, hot to the touch
F                                         G
Would cool down if we didn't use 'em so much

e|------------------------------------0--------------------------------
B|------------------------------------1--------------------------------
G|------------0----------0---------2-----------------------------------
D|---------2----------0---------2--------------------------------------
A|------3----------2---------0-----------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------
      Cadd9        G/B       Amin(open)
We're soul alone, and soul really matters to me
F
Too much

CHORUS 2
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G      
I'm out of time
Amin       G6        Fmaj7             E
But I'm out of my head when you're not around 
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G
I'm out of time 
Amin       G         Amin              G
But I'm out of my head when you're not around
F
Ooh
Amin(add11)/D     G
Oh-woh-oh
Amin       G6        Fmaj7             E
Oh-woh-oh (ooooooooooooo. . .)
F
Ooh
Amin(add11)/D     G
Oh-woh-oh (ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, that's right . . .)

BRIDGE - Key change here - play the following chord progression as Daryl freestyles and T-Bone shows off...

D       Dm7        D       Dm7       D       Dm7


CHORUS 3 - The band sings the third chorus a cappela, clapping out the beat - there's a
short break right before "FINAL CHORUS" (after the band sings their last "you're out of
touch" in "CHORUS 3"), where they strum out . . .

E     E     E     E . . . about 12 times

and then . . .

FINAL CHORUS 
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G      
I'm out of time
Amin       G6        Fmaj7             E
But I'm out of my head when you're not around 
F
You're out of touch
Amin(add11)/D     G
I'm out of time 
Amin       G         Amin              G
But I'm out of my head when you're not around . . . 

Repeat this progression over and over again as Daryl freestyles, and when the song
finally comes to and end, bang out an "Amin" as the closing chord.

NOTE: If some of this tablature seems unclear (i.e. the rhythm, the timing, the
transitions, the ending, etc.), just listen to the song - it should be pretty self-explanatory.
Also, feel free to replace "Amin(add11)/D" with a basic "Dm" if it sounds better.
This tab should also work fairly well with the studio recording.
