======================================
"Deer In the Headlights"
By Owl City
Off of All Things Bright and Beautiful
Universal Republic
2011
(Adam Young rocks!)
======================================


Hey there! I absolutely love this song, so I figured out of nowhere that I'd tab it out 
(Kinda impulsive, I know). Now, there may be

some flaws (especially on lead. :O)--and I'd really appreciate it if you'd point them 
out--but after a lot of ear/brainwork, here it is!

And I think it's at least 95% AWESOME, if not more. And it's pretty easy to play, too.

Ennnnjoy.

--Verse 1--

Guitar 1: Same as Intro


Guitar 2:


D5                  G5
  Met a girl in the parking lot

B5                    A5
  And all I did was say hello

D5                         G5
  Her pepper spray made it rather hard

B5                   A5
  For me to walk her home


      B5                      A5
But I guess that's the way it goes


--Chorus--

D5                   A5
Tell me again was it love at first sight

     B5                  G5
When I walked by and you caught my eye

D5                           A5
  Didn't you know love could shine this bright

     G5      B5               G5          A5
Well smile because you're the deer in the headlights

Rythm:

--Verse 2--

D5                 G5
 Met a girl with a graceful charm

B5                       A5
But when beauty met the beast he froze

D5                   G5
 Got the sense I was not her type

       B5                   A5
By the black eye and bloody nose


      B5                      A5
But I guess that's the way it goes



D5                   A5
Tell me again was it love at first sight

    B5                   G5
When I walked by and you caught my eye

D5                           A5
  Didn't you know love could shine this bright

     G5      B5               G5          A5
Well smile because you're the deer in the headlights

Rythm Guitar:

E5          G5
  It's suffocating to say

        B5                       G5
But the female mystique takes my breath away

E5                    G5
So give me a smile or give me a sneer

          B5              G5   A5
Cause I'm trying to guess here



D5                   A5
Tell me again was it love at first sight

     B5                  G5
When I walked by and you caught my eye

D5                           A5
  Didn't you know love could shine this bright

    E5                  A5
I'm sorry I ever tried (Deer in the headlights)


D5                   A5
Tell me again was it love at first sight

     B5                  G5
When I walked by and you caught my eye

D5                           A5
  Didn't you know love could shine this bright

   G5         B5              G5         A5
If life was a game, you would never play nice

    G5        B5             G5            A5
If love was a beam, you'd be blind in both eyes

         G5         B5
Put your sunglasses on

                 G5          A5
Cause you're the deer in the headlights
