Them Kids

By: Sam Roberts Band

Album: Them Kids(2008)
Tabbed By: wolfendenc

Notes:  This is a basic version of the song.  Some of the lyrics were a little difficult
decipher, so I apologize for the mistakes.  Guitar #2 jams higher on the guitar during
of the parts.  The “G” chord is on the 10th fret and the “C” chord is in the same 
as a regular D chord, but played on the 12th fret.
Great tune by a great band.

Chords:
G – 320001
D – 000230
C – 032010
F – 003211
A – 002220

C
No fears more alone
                                   G
Then their just another dyin’ freak
C
You never feel at home
                                      G
When you’re just another mouth to feed
C                              G
I want live into your logical time
Because I’m
C                        G
Still in my biological prime

Riff #1 is played throughout Chorus

F                                   C
Nobody listens to what they can hear
F                              D
Nobody listens when we disappear

C
Flip your man a chord
                              G
And play a sounds on his guitar
C
Yeah on the street corner
                               G
Feeling like a patron of the arts
            C                                          G
And now the kids don’t know how to dance to rockin’ roll
           C                                          G
I said the kids don’t know how to dance to rockin’ roll

        C                                          G

           C                                           G
I said the kids don’t know how to dance to rockin’ roll

        C
They’re always on the phone
                                 G
And they always gotta have control
            C                                          G
And now the kids don’t know how to dance to rockin’ roll

F         D9                  C
The golden years are under attack
                                   Taking it back, taking it back
F         D9                  C
The golden years are under attack
                                   Taking it back, taking it back
F             D9
Before these original voice
        C
Let the beat in the path leads inner choice
F                   D9
The melody that you thought you found
C                                  DF
These achievements sleeping around

C(Slide up to it….power chord)
We were apostles
C(Slide up to it….power chord)
They were the high priests
G(Slide up to it….power chord)
We live the hustle
G(Slide up to it….power chord)
The keepers of the back beat

CG ----Guitar #2 jams higher on the fretboard

C
We’re under pressure to reconcile
G
Our point of view with contemporary style

                                                           G
It used to be that kids were the ones that knew how to get off
C
It was a year for the swave,
                                  G
now it’s only coming out as a cough
C
I can’t sell my song
                                 G
So I’m gonna have to give em’ away
C
I can’t sell myself
                                      G
Since my hands starting turning to grey

In your "Riff #1 (Played during the Chorus)" section, I believe the 18th frets should be changed to 17th frets. I must say however that you did a great job with this job, especially since it's the first tab for this song. It would be nice to see a more complete version in the future though since Sam Roberts tabs are extremely difficult to find. Thanks for your contribution.
