READ MY MIND - THE KILLERS

Standard Tuning (EADGBE), Capo 1

This tab covers all bars as played in the album version,
if a chord is played over more than one bar then it's either duplicated or marked with a "(2x)". 
The indentation should also be fine so that the chords match the words.

This is the version I play on my acoustic guitar, I hope you like it.

Chords used:
Am    = x02210
Am7   = x02010

Intro:

C  Am7  Gsus4  G
C  Am7  Gsus4  G

Verse 1:

C                  Am7
  On the corner of main street
Gsus4                       G
  Just tryin' to keep it in line
C                        Am7
  You say you wanna move on and
Gsus4                   G
  You say I'm falling behind
                   C     Am7    Gsus4    G
Can you read my mind?
                   C     Am7    Gsus4    G
Can you read my mind?

Verse 2:

C                     Am7
  I never really gave up on
Gsus4                  G
  Breakin' out of this two-star town
C                       Am7
  I got the green light, I got a little fight
Gsus4                        G
  I'm gonna turn this thing around
                   C     Am7     Gsus4    G
Can you read my mind?
                   C      Am7     Gsus4    G
Can you read my mind?

Chorus:
             F                C
The good old days, the honest man
             G                   G
The restless heart, the promised land
         F                C
A subtle kiss that no one sees
         G                    G
A broken wrist and a big trapeze
                F                  C
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
            G        (E7)      Am
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine
           F  (2x)             G (2x)
Before you go, can you read my mind?

Verse 3:

C                         Am7
  It’s funny how you just break down
Gsus4             G
  Waitin' on some sign
         C                       Am7
  I pull up to the front of your driveway
Gsus4                   G
  With magic soakin' my spine
                   C      Am7     Gsus4     G
Can you read my mind?
                   C      Am7     Gsus4     G
Can you read my mind?


Chorus:
            F                 C
The teenage queen, the loaded gun
              G                 G
The drop dead dream, the chosen one
           F                C
A southern drawl, a world unseen
       G                G
A city wall and a trampoline
                F                  C
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
              G        E7        Am
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
           F     F 
Before you jump,    tell me what you 
G    G
find    when you read my mind

Solo:

Am   G      F     C 
Am   G      F     F
G    Gsus4


Chorus:
G                 F             C
   Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
           G
He never returned that call
G                  F                  C
   Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
                     G           G
I wanna breathe that fire again,   she said
        Am                 G
I don't mind, if you don't mind
              F                  C
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
                    Am
Put your back on me
                    G
Put your back on me
                    F (2x)     
Put your back on me

Outro:

C   Am7   Gsus4   G

C                            Am7            Gsus4          G
  The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
                 C         Am7         Gsus4          G
When you read my mind
                 C         Am7         Gsus4          G
                 C (<- End on a single strum on the C here)

i like this one better than other chords posted because it sounds great without having to tune special. the g chord just seems a bit off in places.

Thanks for the comment. You may try to mute the low E string when playing the Gsus4 or G, this makes the bass note being a B instead of a G, which sometimes fits the baseline a bit better

I think the Am7 should be like this: x 0 2 0 1 3

Just my opinion though... good tab!!
