The Shins - It's only life

Intro

C   G   F
C  Em  F  G

C                     Am                           Em                  
Dyed in the wool, you've been cornered by a natural desire
           F                                             C
You wanna hop along the with the giddy throng through life
C                       Em              F                      G
But how will you learn to steer when you're grinding all your gears?

C                        Am           Em                  F            
Youve been talking for hours you say time will wash every tower to the sea
C                    Em    F             G
And now you got this worry in your heart
             F             C                    G
When I guess its only life its only natural
            F               C                        G
We all spent a little while going down the rabbit hole
                 Am                       C    
The things they taught you lining up to haunt you
                       G            F    Em
They got your back against the wall
        F                                         G
I called on you on the telephone wont you pick up the receiver
 
C                        G        F           C         
Ive been down the very road  youre walking now
C                    Em              F
It doesnt have to be so dark and lonesome
C                     G          F          Em                      G
Takes a while till we can figure this thing out and turn it back around

C  Am    Em  G

C                   Am      Em                      F
You use to be such a lion before you got into all this crying on my lap
C                       Em       F        G
Back when you thought I never get this far
F                        C                   G  
But did you think really I'd shut an open door
 F             C                   G
But futures calling and Imma answer her
     Am                                    C
The wheels in motion but I never drink your potion 
                      G         F    Em
And I know it breaks your heart
F                                             G
Open up your parachute something got to stop the free fall
 
C                              G               F        C         
Ive been down the  very road  youre walking now
C                    Em              F
It doesnt have to be so dark and lonesome
C                     G          F          Em                      G   F C  
Takes a while till we can figure this thing out and turn it back around


end on G

I think the "future's calling" bit it also F C and G, as opposed to the Am and C from "the wheels in motion". Otherwise great! :D

Nicely done Doctor, seems to match up with what I did by ear last night. I also tabbed out the solo if you're interested in looking at adding that to this chord sheet to help make it more complete.

Let me know.

Cheers!

Brokenshins is right. The wheels in motion part is off. Other than that it's pretty accurate. Great song, great album.
