The Killers - Why Do I Keep Counting?
Tabbed by: helna
(My first tab...)

D#                         A# 
There's a plane and I am flying
C#                         B
There's a mountain waiting for me
D#                         A# 
Oh these years have been so trying
C#                         B
I don't know if I can use them
D#                         A# 
Am I strong enough to be the one? (Am I strong enough to be the one?)
C#                         B
Will I live to have some children? (Children)


D#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
A#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
Gm                       Cm
If I only knew the answer
                G#      A#   G#/A#
I wouldn't be bothering you, Father
D#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
A#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
Cm                      A#
If I only knew the answer
        G#                G#m
And if all our days are numbered
                      D#
Then why do I keep counting?


Cm        G#             A#
My sugar sweet is so attainable
Gm       Cm        Fm       A#              
This behaviour so unexplainable
Cm                       G#
The days just slip and slide
A#
Like they always did
Gm         Cm      Fm
The trouble is my head
                      A#
Won't let me forget


Gm                        Cm         A#       G#    Gm
I took one last good look around (so many unusual sounds)
Fm     Gm       G#           A#
I gotta get my feet on the ground


D#
Help me get down, I can make it (ahhhh)
D#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
A#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
Gm                  Cm
If I only knew the answer
                G#      A#   G#/A#
I wouldn't be bothering you, Father
D#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
A#
Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down
Cm                   A#
If I only knew the answer
        G#                G#m
And if all our days are numbered


D#
Would you help me get down? 
(help me get down, I can make it, help me get down)
A#
(Help me get down, I can make it, help me get down)
Cm                   A#
If I only knew the answer
D#                      G#
If I change my way of living
Fm                              A#
And If I pave my streets with good times
Gm                           Cm
Will the mountain keep on giving
Cm                A#         G#
And if all of our days are numbered
                     Cm       D# A# D# A# D# A# D# A# D#
Then why do I keep counting

Great tab! Thanks for sharing!

Some may find it easier to play with the capo on the 1st, and transpose the song down 1 half step.

I think all the chords are played as if they were each a half-step higher, but with the guitar downtuned a half-step as well.
I say this because the Killers are somewhat notorious for having their instruments tuned down a half-step.
