-Rusty

[Tune Half Step Down]

G                             Em
It was bound to happen and it happened today
     A7                        D7
Life turned to us to say "i'm about to go your way"
           G                         Em
And it's a simple situation now that we became us
      A7                   D7
There ain't no rust on the happiness bus
         G                    Em
And it's wednesday, thursday, my day, friday
A7                D7
Saturday, sunday, all the rest are fun days
G                     Em
From now on until the very end
A7                        D7                  G
Never gonna spend another day without you again
                  D7
Here's the proof, i'm telling the truth and it's

Chorus:
G       Em      A7                      D7
Oh yes, my oh my, the earth shakes when you walk by
G                      Em          A7
It's a fairy tale that we made true
               D7
I can't believe that i found you
         G       Em
And it's oh yes, my oh my
A7                        D7
People turn and look when we walk by
       G       Em           A7
It's a big fat love we feel in our hearts
      D7                                 G     D7
We're keepin it, keepin it, keepin it real


Now the sun is going down over our troubled times
We can free our minds and leave it all behind and
It's a common stipulation that there ain't no hope
But there's a tire swing baby on the end of our rope
And it's wednesday, thursday, my day, friday
Saturday, sunday, all the rest are fun days
From now on until the very end
Never gonna spend another day without you again
Here's the proof, i'm telling the truth and it's

Oh yes, my oh my, the earth shakes when you walk by
It's a fairy tale that we made true
I can't believe that i found you
And it's oh yes, my oh my
People turn and look when we walk by
It's a big fat love we feel in our hearts
We're keepin it, keepin it, keepin it real

these chords sound perfect if you play them as bar chords. your bar moves from the 3rd fret, to 7th, then to 5th. i think it sounds fine without changing from standard tuning.

G: 355433
Em: 779987
A7: 575655
E7: 557575

Even better, to compensate for tuning down a half step, play every bar chord a half step down on the neck. Since all the notes (G, E, A, E) have a full step note behind them...(if that makes any sense)...you can play everything a half step down by just moving your bar chords down a fret.

Instead of playing G, play F#: 244322
..................Em, play D#m: 668876
..................A7, play G#7: 464544
..................E7, play D#7: 446464

I'm convinced there's no better way to play it =)
