Great band, great song, great lyrics.....enjoy



   [A]     [G]
I just shook the handshake
    [G]                                                   [D]
I just sealed the deal
   [A]                         [G]
I'll try not to let them
   [G]                        [D]
Take everything they can steal
  [A]                         [G]
People always told me
   [G]                       [D]
Don't forget your roots
   [A]               [G]                       [G]                         [D]
I know I can feel them underneath my leather boots

  [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
You toss all the mornings lost to the clouds and you watch it go
  [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
Your fairweather friends on a parachute binge get lost when the wind blows
   [G]                  [G/F#]               [Em]    
The handshake's stuck on the tip of my tongue
  [Bm]
It tastes like death but it looks like fun

        [B]
I was a loner
                     [E]      [D#]    [G#m] 
I was just waiting   by     myself
  [B]      [D]
When you, warped temptress
                                    [B]                  [E]
Rose to bring me happiness and wealth
           [E]                  [D#]                [D]                     [A]
Black tears, black smile, black credit cards and shoes
           [A]
You can call all the people you want
           [E]                   [F#]
But it's you who's being used
     

           [B]
Under your black eyes, honey
       [E]      [D#]    [G#m]
Right beneath your nose
[B]      [D]
A curse on all creation
                   [B]                  [E]
Every single thing you know
            [E]                  [D#]                [D]                     [A]
White smoke, white light, white marble on the floor
[A]                                                                      [E]               [F#]
It would only take a few seconds of darkness to figure out what's in store
Little girl

   [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
Ohhhh You convince yourself that you want it, but you don't know
   [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]        {A]               [D]                    [A]         [Bm]
You keep trying to wash the blood from your hands, but it won't go
     [G]   [G/F#]  [Em]
We're gonna keep you on the run
 [Bm]
We got the handshake under our tongue
 [Bm]
We got the handshake under our tongue
 [Bm]
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm]
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm]
We got the handshake x15

The verse isn't that simple, it's A maj, G maj to b min, check video of them playing

Sounds fine to me.... this tab is really awesome! Lots of hard to hear chords. Spot on!

Cellcamp is right for the most part. The first verse is A maj written High E to low E (556775) to G maj (334553). It looks like Andrew is playing the D though in the live version but I think he mutes the bottom two strings with his thumb (3230xx).

Can't complain otherwise, good tab.
