[Intro]

E x3


[Verse 1]

      C#m      B          A         E
I'll never forget you my American love
           C#m     B           A           E
and I'll always remember you, wild as they come
      A                       B              C#m
and though if I saw you, I'd pretend not to know
     A                          B            C#m
The place where you were in my heart is now closed
     A               B           E
I already live with too many ghosts


[Verse 2]

      C#m       B         A           E
Now everybody lately is living up in space
 C#m           B                 A        E
Flying through transmissions on invisible airwaves
       A                          B            C#m
With everything discovered just waiting to be known
   A                   B              C#m
What's left for God to teach from his throne?
     A          B                 E
And who will forgive us when he's gone?


[Chorus]

    A             E
So take what you need now Honey
A                 E
and do what you like
A                 E               B
Don't worry about me, Momma, I'm all right


[Verse 3]

    C#m                B
And I can't stand the weather
     A               E
No I never liked the rain
     C#m         B              A     E
We drink on the job then we go home early
       A                          B           C#m
and I remember how she looked so good in that dress
     A                      B                     C#m
Now she just screams how I promised her more than this
        A     
Take it easy baby
B             E
It ain't over yet


[Chorus 2]

A                 E
So take what you need now Honey
A               E
and do what you like
A                  E               B
Don't worry about me, Momma, I'm all right

    A                         E
and if there's something you need
  A                         E
and if there's something you find
A         B                   C#m
whatever gets you through the night
A         B                   E
whatever gets you through the night


[Outro]

     C#m      B          A            E
I never will forget you my American love
           C#m     B           A             E
and I'll always remember you, wild as they do come
A   B  
Umhm


[Ending]

E

the chords are correct but anyone looking for a specific picking pattern here it is for the intro, the rest is just the same but using the above chords.

this works. or capo it on the third fret and it becomes Am-G-F-C. like most of their other songs.
