To buy the things it takes To win me some of your love. 


[Pre-Chorus 1]

E            E/D#            D                  C#
Every time I turn around I'm looking up, you're looking down. 
E                 E/D#                G                 A
Maybe something's wrong with you That makes you act the way you do.

To  lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)

G#m A       B   
I'm looking up


[Verse 3]

E D E B B A A and Verse 3 riff
I’m gonna soak up the sun, the water’s still free.
I’m gonna soak up the sun, before it goes out on me.
Don’t have no master suite, but I’m still the king of me.
You have a fancy ride, but baby I’m the one that has the key.


[Pre-Chorus 2]

E            E/D#            D                  C#
Every time I turn around I'm looking up, you're looking down. 
E                 E/D#                G                 A
Maybe something's wrong with you that makes you act the way you do. 
G          A
Maybe I am crazy too!


[Chorus]

To  lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
E                  B                           F#m
I've got no one to blame For every time I feel lame

I'm looking up

This is good, but I'm not sure the chords on the verses line up quite right.

Should be just E-B-A repeated over and over.

Nice joB!

I put the capo on the 2nd and reference 1 full step down on the chords

I think the line is:
"I?m gonna soak up the sun, while it's still free"

Pre-Chorus 2
D D/C# C C/B
Every time I turn around I'm looking up, you're looking down.
D D/C# F
Maybe something's wrong with you that makes you act the way you do.
G
Maybe I am crazy too!
