Killers - Runaways
------------------------------
                      jbro1985

Well, this song was released this morning and I haven't stopped listening to it 
since, so thought I might as well jot down the chords as I listened!  

It's my first tab, but I reckon it's pretty accurate.  You decide. 

So here goes.

CAPO 1

[Intro] 
C G F
F C G (x2)

[Verse] 
C           G             F
Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind,
    F         C            G   
The blue-eyed girl playing in the sand,
    C           G           F
I'd been on her trail for a little while,
    F            C              G                      Am
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand.

[Bridge]
        C
Teenage rush, she said,
Dm7               G
Ain't we all just runaways?
       Am                   C
We got time, but that ain't much,
         G             F
We can't wait...till tomorrow.

[Pre-Chorus]
          G                 A            -- 3rd fret, then 5th
You gotta know that this is real baby,
F             C
Why you wanna fight it?
         A   B     C         F           -- 5th fret, 7th, 8th, 1st
It's the one thing you can't choose.
    G A F
Oh!

[Verse] 
C           G         F
We got engaged on a Friday night,
    F          C           G   
I swore on the head of our unborn child,    
     C            G           F
That I could take care of the three of us,
    F         C          G                        Am
But I got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild.

[Bridge]
           C
It's in my blood,
Dm7                     G
She said she might just runaway       
          Am               C
Somewhere else, some place good,
         G             F
We can't wait...till tomorrow.

[Pre-Chorus]
          G (3rd fret)      A (5th fret)
You gotta know that this is real baby,
F             C
Why you wanna fight it?
         A   B     C         F
It's the one thing you can't choose,
             G (3rd fret)
Let's take a chance baby we can't lose...

[Chorus]
                  C   G   F 
Ain't we all just runaways?
                 F     C                G
I knew it when I met you, I'm not gonna let you...
  C G F
Runaway!
                 F           C              G
I knew it when I held you, I wasn't letting go.

[Middle 8]
           Dm7                      Am
We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams,
          Dm7
Hold each other till the morning light,
   Am                   C
We used to laugh, no we only fight,
G                      F
Baby, are you lonesome now?

[Verse]
             C         G          F
That night I come home after they go to sleep,
       F         C       G
Like a stumbling ghost I haunt these halls,
          C          G         F
There's a picture of us on our wedding day,
       F        C          G                     F
I recognise the girl but I can't settle in these walls,
         G             F
We can't wait...till tomorrow.

[Pre-Chorus]
                 G           C
No, we're caught up in the appeal baby,
F             
Why you wanna hide it?
         C          G     F
It's the last thing on my mind,
  G               C           F
I turn the engine over and my body just comes...
G (3rd fret)
Alive!

[Chorus]
                  C   G   F 
Ain't we all just runaways,
                 F        C             G
I knew it when I met you, I'm not gonna let you...
  C G  F
Runaway! 
                 F           C              G
I knew it when I held you, I wasn't letting go, 
           C          G        F
Oh Oh oh oh (Ain't we all just runaways,)
     F       C   G
Ye - E - E - eah!
    C          G        F
Run! (Ain't we all just runaways)
     F       C   G
Ye - E - E - eah!

G A C (ring)

You've got it pretty much right but I really think that at 'held my hand' the chords should really be F not Am and the 'it's the one thing you can choose' part is a bit awkward but i really can't decide what it really is.

but thanks for the chords!

Great Job! I agree with what backstaged said, though.

Everything good except that the last chord should be F not C
