First tab! Chords are easy and sound great (and the lyrics are right as well)

Capo 4 
Standard Tuning 

[Intro] 

Am F C x4 


[Verse]

         Am        
It's not silly little moment 
             F                C 
It's not the storm before the calm 
            Am
This is the deep and dying breath of 
                          F       C 
This love that we've been working on 
              Am            
Can't seem to hold you like I want to 
         F              C
So I can feel you in my arms 
         Am 
Nobody's gonna come and save you 
                      F     C 
We've pulled too many false alarms 


[Chorus]

            G 
We're going down 
               Am     F 
And you can see it too 
            G
We're going down 
        Am              F 
And you know that we're doomed 
       Am                       F       C 
My dear we're slow dancing in a burning room 

Am F C x2 


[Verse]

          Am 
I was the one you always dreamed of 
             F              C 
You were the one I tried to draw
             Am 
How dare you say it's nothing to me
                      F            C 
Baby, you're the only light I ever saw 
           Am
I make the most of all the sadness 
            F                 C
You'll be a bitch because you can
           Am
You try to hit me just to hurt me 

So you leave me feeling dirty 
          F     C 
Cause you can't understand 


[Chorus]

            G 
We're going down 
               Am     F 
And you can see it too 
            G
We're going down 
        Am              F 
And you know that we're doomed 
       Am                       F       C 
My dear we're slow dancing in a burning room 

Am F C x2 

   Am                          F C 
Go cry about it, why don't you?     x3 

       Am                       F       C 
My dear we're slow dancing in a burning room 

Am F C x4
                         Am 
Don't you think we oughta know by now? 
                           F       C 
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow? 

Those two lines repeat and the song fades out so do what you want with the ending! 
Like I said, this is my first tab so it may be a little rough but it sounds great 
to me and I hope this helps! John Mayer songs are typically difficult to play, so 
I hope this helps you beginners out there! Thanks xoxo

For anyone looking to get this that little bit more accurate..

G
We're going down
Am *Dm7*
And you know that we're doomed

Normal Dm/Dm7 is ok but you could try XX0011 to get that 11 sound.

(Originally without a capo he goes down to a F#m11 chord (2X4200) for 'doomed' FYI)
