Hey guys,

Just a little chord tab of how i play Use Somebody by The Kings of Leon on
ACOUSTIC GUITAR. this might not sound good electric. please do not flame this tab
if your playing it on an electric, as i tabbed this via my acoustic.
Enjoy!

Chords used:

C Em F Am   (yes its that simple)


[Intro]

C          Em         F
Ohhh Woahh Ohhh Woahh Ohhh     
C          Em         F
Ohhh Woahh Ohhh Woahh Ohhh   

Am         C          F
Ohhh Woahh Ohhh Woahh Ohhh     

(let the F ring, begin singing the first few lines
as the F dies out)


[Verse]

                  C                      Em            F
I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see
F       C              Em             F
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach
F                     Am         C            F
You know that I could use somebody
F                     Am         C            F   (once again let it ring)
You know that I could use somebody


[Chorus]

             C               Em               F
Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
F         C            Em           F
Countless lovers under cover of the streets
F                     Am         C            F
You know that I could use somebody
F                     Am         C            F    
ring)
You know that I could use somebody
             C                Em         F
Someone like you   Woahh Ohhh Woahh Ohhh Ohhh       (lets the F ring again)
             C               Em               F
Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
F         C            Em           F
Countless lovers under cover of the streets
F                     Am         C            F
You know that I could use somebody
F                     Am         C            F    
ring)
You know that I could use somebody
             C                Em         F
Someone like you   Woahh Ohhh Woahh Ohhh Ohhh       (lets the F ring again)


[Verse]

           C                       Em            F
Off in the night while you live it up I'm off to sleep
F      C                 Em           F
Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
F                 Am            C             F
I hope it's gonna make you notice
F                 Am            C             F      
(Let F ring...again)
I hope it's gonna make you notice


[Chorus]

             C          Em            F
Someone like meeeeeeee  eee                  
             C          Em            F
Someone like meeeeeeee  eee              
        Am        C                   F      
Someone me, somebody
        Am        C                   F      
Someone me, somebody
             Am          C            F    (let the ring)
Someone like you, somebody
                  C                      Em            F
I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see

I hope you can understand it how i play it. if your un sure about the bit with
letting the F's ring, or you think its wrong let me know and i'll try explain it
better. Other than that, i hope you guys have a really awesome time playing a
really awesome song!
 Please rate and comment what you thought, as this is my first tab. Feedback MUCH 
:)

-----Edit-----

When playing the F chord in the verses try and let your finger catch the high E string 
you got for an up strum :) just adds a little something extra in there.
