(chord pattern repeats)

staying up all night with my ball and chain
all the bridges burn, speak to yellow flame
winning and losing or pushing away
if i fell apart would you stay

Chorus

C                       Am             E               F
and our plans riddled with liars and thieves
C                        Am             E              F
you and i were taking the path we know
C             Am              E            F
all along, i was wrong i was wrong
C                        Am              F
and moving on with or without


(intro guitar 1 part 2)

Verse:

cymbals shake my ears in the dead of night
smoke and mirror clubs with revolving lights
keeping good company let it all go
when im finally home ill let you know

Chorus

C                       Am             E               F
and our plans riddled with liars and thieves
C                        Am             E              F
you and i were taking the path we know
C             Am              E            F
all along, i was wrong i was wrong
C                        E             F
and moving on with or without

the verses sound more like Am, Em, F, C to me
and on the last line of each verse it's F and then a different chord that's like

thanks for posting, I love this song! :)

The tabs here for the lead are pretty much correct.
The chords for the rhythm guitar are totally wrong, though.

The verse/intro/outro should be: Am, Em, F, C. - every 4th time round this progression you play Am, Em, F, F7 instead.

The chorus chord progression is: C, G, F, F7.

The middle 8 part where he screams "I was wrong!" isn't just straight rhythm chords like the rest of the song, but the progression of C, F, Em fits perfectly in there in regards to the bass parts etc.

Hope that helps some people out.

Cheers.
