Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Band: The Killers
Song: Mr Brightside
Tabber: James Simmons
Comments: Quite an old song now but i play this acoustically and it sounds
so good. I put a capo on fret 2 because it suits my voice but it can be played
without.

Chords:
              eadgbe
       Dsus2 (xx0230)
   Dmaj7sus2 (x40230)
         G/A (3x0230)
        Bm/A (x20230)
       Asus4 (x02230)

it doesnt take a genius to work out this song is based around the shape and sound
of Dsus2 as every chord is shaped around the (xx0230)


[Intro/Verse 1]

this is repeated throughout the intro as well as verse 1, the chords are tabbed
below for those that wish to strum

[Verse 1]

    Dsus2                    Dmaj7sus2
        I'm coming out of my cage
                                 G/A
        And I’ve been doing just fine
                       G/A
        Gotta gotta be down

        Because I want it all
    Dsus2                     Dmaj7sus2
        It started out with a kiss
                               G/A
        How did it end up like this
                          G/A
        It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
     Dsus2                Dmaj7sus2
        Now I’m falling asleep
                            G/A
        And she’s calling a cab
                            G/A
        While he’s having a smoke

        And she’s taking a drag
     Dsus2                   Dmaj7sus2
        Now they’re going to bed
                         G/A
        And my stomach is sick
                           G/A
        And it’s all in my head

        But she’s touching his


[Bridge]

        Bm/A
        chest
                              Asus4
        Now, he takes off her dress
                    G/A
        Now, let me go
       Bm/A                       Asus4
        And I just can’t look its killing me
            G/A
        And taking control


[Chorus 1]

        Dsus2     G/A              Bm/A
        Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
        Asus4                 Dsus2
        Swimming through sick lullabies
        G/A             Bm/A
        Choking on your alibis
        Asus4             Dsus2
        But it’s just the price I pay
        G/A        Bm/A
        Destiny is calling me
        Asus4      Dsus2    G/A
        Open up my eager eyes
       Bm/A           Asus4
        ‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside


[Verse 2]

Dsus2                    Dmaj7sus2
        I'm coming out of my cage
                                 G/A
        And I’ve been doing just fine
                       G/A
        Gotta gotta be down

        Because I want it all
    Dsus2                     Dmaj7sus2
        It started out with a kiss
                               G/A
        How did it end up like this
                          G/A
        It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
     Dsus2                Dmaj7sus2
        Now I’m falling asleep
                            G/A

        While he’s having a smoke

        And she’s taking a drag
     Dsus2                   Dmaj7sus2
        Now they’re going to bed
                         G/A
        And my stomach is sick
                           G/A

        And taking control

        Dsus2     G/A              Bm/A
        Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
