Leave The Bourbon On The Shelf
The Killers
Sawdust
Transcribed by Tim Ronco

   The strum pattern used throughout the entire song is a combination of
clean and palm muted strums. It's pretty easy to get in your head, which
makes this song so darn catchy.
   These are the chords used. You can figure out how they go with the strum
pattern. These are the chords used unless a tab is provided.
----C#------F#------G#------G#*-----A#m-----G#2-----|
e|-------||------||------||------||------||---------|
B|-------||------||------||------||------||---------|
G|-------||------||------||------||------||---------|
D|-----8-||----1-||----3-||----3-||------||---------|
A|-11--x-||-4--x-||-6--x-||-6--x-||-4--6-||-4--6----|
E|-9---9-||-2--2-||-4--4-||-5--5-||-6--6-||-4--4----|

It's easiest to play the first three chords with your middle finger on the E
string, index finger on the A string, and pinky finger on the D string.

Or Alternative chords for those who can reach
----C#------F#------G#------G#*----|
e|-------||------||------||--------|
B|-------||------||------||--------|
G|-------||------||------||--------|
D|-------||------||------||--------|
A|-11--13||-4--6-||-6--8-||-6--8---|
E|-9---9-||-2--2-||-4--4-||-5--5---|

For those of you who don't like the fingering, this song would be easier to
play in Drop D, but unless it's standard tuning, I have no idea what you
would play for the A#m chord.

  C#
Shakin' like the Devil when she lets me go
                                        F#
Got a new place, and how it's so much better
  C#
Falling over myself, the televisions' on,
                    G#    G#*
I turn it off and smile
     A#m                         F#
Oh, Jennifer, you know I always tried

Before you say goodbye

Leave the bourbon on the shelf
                        F#
And I'll drink it by myself
                    A#m
And I love you endlessly,
                  G#2               F#
Darling don't you see I'm not satisfied
                   F#m
Until I hold you tight
                          C#
Give me one more chance tonight
                           F#
And I swear I'll make it right
                            A#m
But you ain't got time for this
                            G#2
And that wreckin' bell is ringin'
                 F#m
And I'm not satisfied


Until I hold you

  C#m                       F#

Darling don't you see

Pretty accurate tab, but what are you supposed to play for the F#m and the A#?

Great tab. One correction, though. On the "before you say goodbye" part, you've got this:

D--4--5--6--7--8--|
A--4--5--6--7--8--|
E--2--3--4--5--6--|

I think it sounds better like this:

D--4--6--7--6--8--|
A--4--6--7--6--8--|
E--2--4--5--4--6--|
