                             What to Do - OK Go
Tabbed by:Alex Worthy

Okay so this was just requested. I looked at other tabs and I see why.
They're not 100% correct and they aren't very detailed.

Tuning:Standard, no capo.

Basically it goes like this;

         C           Em            Bb               A
Come on in, sweetie-pie! Have an apple, have some lye...
             Dm                   G                          C    G
Leave your friends, righteous and pathetic, standing at the door.

         C           Em            Bb               A
On the books, all your bets favor head-bands and cassettes,
         Dm           G          C    G
cigarettes, suffragettes, and bores.

        C       C7
What to do?
F                  Fm    Dm                                           G
Sweetheart, you'll find mediocre people do exceptional things all the time.

         C         C7         F        Fm
Oh, the ruin will do in your talented mind...
Dm                              G             G7
could've been a genius if you'd had an axe to grind.

        C    Cm7/B     Am     F
What to dooooooooooooooooo oh
        C    Cm7/B   E    Am     F
What to doooooooooooooooooooo oh

The difference with my tab is, I will explain how each chord is played.

    C  Em  Bb  A  Dm  G  C7  F  Fm  G7  Cm7/B  Am  E

few things IMHO:
Bb- should be played on 6th fret as a barre chord
A- should be played on the 5th
Dm is a Dm7 played as a barre chord on the 5th

you can see it in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiinJ0F5WvQ&ob=av2e

your other chords a mostly right, a little iffy on some though (just a thought)

Where the chords are played on the fretboard doesn't change what chords they are.

take it easy. I was just saying how it's played in the video. Didn't mean to offend you.
