This is my first tab so if there is anything wrong just let me know and I'll fix it, 
 Pretty simple song, it has the same chords basically through the whole song.

You can watch the live version on this link below...well worth it!

Verse 1

Guitar 1 - Capo 3

When I was younger I used to be wild
As wild as an elephant's child
No one could hold me down
No one could keep me around

|-0---7---9---5---5/7---|

Now it's your turn, take a shot
Baby show me everything that you got
Maybe you can keep me alive
Maybe you can get in my mind, but it’s only a matter of time

Chorus

Before I run far away
I need to take a holiday
Maybe it's a fall from grace
I gotta find a new place

A holiday
I'll set off on a new chase
I gotta see a new face
I need to take a holiday

Verse 2

My father, he was always wise
As wise as an elephant's eyes
He couldn't hold me down
He couldn't keep me around

So are you gonna take your shot?
It's the only one that you got
Maybe I'll go out on a limb
Maybe I'll jump in for a swim
When the lights go dim

Chorus

You know I'll run far away
I need to take a holiday
Maybe it's a fall from grace
I gotta find a new place

I gotta see a new face
I need to take a holiday

Bridge

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
A new start
I've broken too many hearts
And I don't have any clue where to go
I don't know
But maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday

Verse 3: Play softly

When I was younger I used to be wild
As wild as an elephant's child
And I don't think I'll ever change
I think I'm gonna stay the same

Outro

All of the wasted time
The hours that were left behind
The answers that we'll never find
They don't mean a thing tonight
