[Verse]
C#m       G#            A     E
My whole saturday and sunday too
C#m       G#            A     E
I was thinkin''bout ways not to lose
C#m  G#            A     E
I lay down my weapons is what I've done
C#m  G#                A            E
Too late to hide, feet too soft to run

                F#7        G#7
But people say I'm the luckiest man

He does a nice little chord progression into the Chorus that I have tabbed out below

      F#7               G#7
      F#7               G#7
e|----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/6-6-6-6-6-------|
B|----5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5/7-7-9-9-6-------|
G|----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/6-6-6-6-6-------|
D|----6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/8-8-8-8-8-------|
A|----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/6-6-6-6-6-------|
E|--------------------------------------|


And yeah they say

[Chorus]
A         E            A           E
Running is useless and fighting is foolish
A               E                        A       E
You're not gonna win but still you're the luckiest man you're up against
A           E      A                E
And too many horses and mysterious forces
A              E                   A       E
What you don't know is you are the luckiest man
           A       E
You're the luckiest man
C#m       G#            A     E

[Verse]
C#m                  G#            A         E
I done talked to the devil when he calls my name
C#m           G#                 A              E
But sometimes when I'm losing it all seems the same
C#m       G#        A       E
And when I fall I'm back up again
C#m       G#                          A             E
Just to slip on the same mistakes and slide right back in
                      F#7     G#7 (Same riff as before)
But people say I'm the luckiest man

And yeah they say

[Chorus]
A          E           A           E
Running is useless and fighting is foolish
A                E                        A       E
You're not gonna win but still you're the luckiest man you're up against
A            E      A             E
And too many horses and mysterious forces
A             E                   A       E
What you don't know is you are the luckiest man
           A       E
You're the luckiest man
C#m       G#            A     E

[Verse]
C#m       G#            A         E
Try to keep my faith and keep my mind
C#m       G#                      A           E
Hate to lose either one when the whip cracks behind
C#m       G#            A              E
And I can't help but mourning just a little each night
C#m       G#            A     E
People say everything is gonna be alright
                       F#7        G#7 (Riff again)
But people say I'm the luckiest man

And yeah they say

[Chorus]
A         E       A              E
Running is useless and fighting is foolish
A               E                        A       E
You're not gonna win but still you're the luckiest man you're up against
A           E      A             E
And too many horses and mysterious forces
A             E                   A       E
What you don't know is you are the luckiest man
           A       E
You're the luckiest man
           A       E
You're the luckiest man
