Am C Em Dm C
Am C F F 

[Verse]
  Am                       C
Gimme' a new single, make me a new baby,
       Em                          Dm                    C
Gonna' eat all the candy while you straddle and lay me.
       Am                            C
Gonna' know all the words before you come on top,
      F                               F
and I sing them back at you while you try to nap.

[Bridge]
          Am                       C
While the world rides on, we're so happy to be listening 
       Em         Dm          C
to our radio, our savior, oh.
          Am                           C
While the world melts on down we're so happy to be listening 
       F          F                 G
to our radio, now break it on down slow.

[Chorus]
Am                  C
Slave to the radio, slave to the radio, 
Em                  Dm                    C
slave to the radio, three point three oh.

Now don't you look good sucking American dick?
             Em                             Dm                C
You're so surprised they like you; you're so cute and so quick.
        Am                            C
Singin' I got the moves of a TV queen, folk girl hero in a magazine,
F                                  F                       G
faking the truth in a new pop song--don't you wanna' sing along?

[Chorus]
Am                    C
Slave to the radio, slave to the radio, 
Em                 Dm                   C
slave to the radio, three point three oh.
Am                    C
Slave to the radio, slave to the radio,

Am                C
Highway blues and gasoline fumes, 
     Em                           Dm               C
it's all I seem to make while I'm playin' my tunes.
 Am                C
I know the rules. I ask for it too,
    F                               F
but I just keep on yelling, keep on running, never stopping...
       Am              C

I never could find a strumming pattern that sounded good with this song, but I have a picking pattern that sounds okay. When I play this, I do the 1st as a baseline and just try to alternate pick the 3rd and 5th*, so the first verse looks like the following:

(For string numbers I use EADGBe=654321)

Am (5-2-5-3, 5-2-5-3) C (5-1-5-3, 5-1-5-3)
Gimme' a new single, make me a new baby,
Em** (6-1-6-2, 6-1-6-2) Dm (4-1-4-3) Dm to C (4-1-5-1)***
Gonna' eat all the candy while you straddle and lay me.

*this is the pattern Jack White uses on a lot of recordings of "We Are Going to Be Friends, so if you're having trouble imagining it try looking up that song

**for Em chord, I play 3rd fret only on the high (skinny) e string, with no other fingers on the fret board, so in the pattern below, the strings played are EeEB, EeEB (so it's E as base with the G note on the high e string as the third and then the open B string fifth)

***after the 4-1, let go of everything and throw a finger down on the third fret of your A string, making the played note a C. That C plus the now-open high e is the "5-1" in the Dm to C "4-1-5-1"
