Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

----

UPDATE: Corrected to address some concerns!
B is defo Bm. Sorry for the initial mistake.
However, I can't hear the extra G that sheenabon talks of.
I went on youtube and checked some live performances... and my
tab seems correct in this respect!

----

The timing of the chords is a little tricky to pick up on.
Use barre chords on the verse but ordinary chords sound fine on choruses/other bits. I'm 
100% on this tab, but I think correct.

Also, before a G, sometimes a D is played really quickly.
I've left this out, because it isn't totally necessary and you have to
listen kinda hard to notice, but add it in in your playing if you like.

G A Bm A D
G A Bm A D

G     A
Yes I know it was late
        Bm
We were greeting the sun
  A    D
Before long

And you live with someone
            Bm
I live with somebody too
      A  D
Leave it there


A                 G
For safe keeping
                           A      G
One of the west village in plains
That was the custom
     A    G
Come dawn


G D

G      A
On the walls of the day
       Bm
In the shade of the sun
   A     D
We wrote down


G       A
Another vision of us
            Bm
We were the challengers of
    A D
The unknown


    A              G
"Be safe" you say
                                  A           G
Whatever the mess you are, you're mine, okay
If that is the custom
    A     G
I'm down


G D

Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na
Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na...

Until we clear the accounts

Leave it to us
           Bm
We are the challengers of

The unknown

Oh-la, oh-la, oh-la, oh-la
A             D             G
Oh-la, oh-la, oh-la, oh-la

thanks for the tab, i think every time they play B it's a Bm, not a B major.

Yeah, it's definitely a B minor

i think before the 2nd A chord in the verse lines there is a G, you know:

G A B G A D

not G A B A D
