Artist: Kings Of Leon
Song: The Bucket
Album: A-Ha Shake Heartbreak
Tabbed by James Morris

The Kings are back and they're back in style.

For this song I have tabbed Matthew's (lead) and Caleb's (rhythm) guitar pieces. I'm
pretty sure this is exact because I saw it played on Later with Jools Holland.

[Verse 1]

(Caleb repeats intro)
(Matthew plays)

D
I'll be the one to show you the way
A
You'll be the one to always complain
G
3 in the morning come a bang, bang, bang
G
All out of fags and I just can't wait
D 
Cancel the thing that I said I'd do
A 
I don't feel comfortable talking to you
G 
Unless you got the zipper fixed on my shoe
G
Then I'll be in the lobby drinking for two


[Chorus]

[Verse 2]

(Caleb repeats intro)
(Matthew plays)

D
Look at the shaky's what's with the blush
A
Fresh off the plane in my fuzzy rush
G
Everyone's gathered to idolize me
G
I hate the way you talk your Japanese scream
D
It's been too long since I left the shed
A
You kick the bucket an' I'll swing my legs 
G
Always remember the pact that we made
G
Too young to die, but old is a grave.

Just a slight change, but sounds more accurate when you listen to the song.
