D               A     G
If I seem ou ou ou ou out of it

We'll be wearing wigs and costumes. Won't be any hope to hide

When I learned to walk, you know humans roamed the earth

I can't hold my breath anymore, I stopped swimming and learned to surf

It's cause I can't stand the shifting sands and shells under our feet

         D                  A          G
Put your suitcase dow ow ow ow own and leave your shoes

Bm                F#m     G                          Em   G
Gently by the door   in a huddle with your boots

This tab needs a little more love. The intro riff is close but not correct, and it doesn't include the chords for the part after the 2nd chorus. I was able to get a good idea from this tab but it's certainly not worth 5 stars.

Yeah so I guess I was listening to the acoustic version. This electric tab is near spot on.

I can't get the timing for intro at all :/ that distortion is making this very difficult.
