If you've seen the acoustic version robbers, you'd see that Matty plays some chords that resemble power 
chords. I'm not sure what they are called exactly. (Please comment below so I can improve this tab, thanks!)
This is my first tab so be as harsh as you want :P
(These are not the exact names, please correct me)

*MUTE* STRINGS G, B, (high) e. 
* = One strum

CAPO ON 2ND FRET

*PALM MUTED THROUGH OUT THE WHOLE SONG EXCEPT WHEN PLAYING THE "Am" TRANSITION CHORD.*

[Verse 1]

 E         B                     C#       A  Am
She had a face straight out a magazine
 E         B                      C#      A  Am
God only knows but you'll never leave her
 E       B                     C#         A  Am
Her balaclava is starting to chafe
          E                  B             C#      A
When she gets his gun he's begging, "Babe stay, stay, stay, stay, stay."


[Chorus]

              E         B
I'll give him one more time
               C#        A
We'll give you one more fight
      E         B
Said one more line
 C#                 A                 
There'll be a riot, cause I know you


[Verse 2]

 E           B                        C# A  Am
Now if you never shoot, you'll never know
 E           B                      C#    A  Am
And if you never eat, you'll never grow
 E           B                   C#       A  Am
You've got a pretty kinda dirty face
                 E                      B                  C#    A
And when you're leaving your home she's begging you, "Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay."


[Chorus]

              E         B
I'll give you one more time
               C#        A
We'll give you one more fight
      E        B     
Just said one more line
 C#                 A                 
There'll be a riot, will I know you?


[Verse 3]

C#
Well, now that you've got your gun
B
It's much harder now the police have come
C#
Now shoot him if it's what you're worth
                                  E *
And if you just take off your mask
                                  B
To find out that everything's gone wrong, wrong, wrong.


[Outro]

E                B
Now everybody's dead
   C#                       A
And they're driving past my old school
    E                B
And he's got his gun, he's got his suit on
C              A
She says, 'Babe, you look so cool'
            E                 B
You look so cool, you look so cool, cool, cool, cool
            C#                A                            
You look so cool, you look so cool, you look so cool, cool, cool, cool, cool

I play the C#Db minor instead of the C, sounds like an intimidating chord but its quite easy. Otherwise, this is spot on, thanks pal.
