[Verse 1]
Bm..............D......................A
They’re gonna send us to prison for jerks
Bm....................D...................A..................
For having vague ideas of the way to turn each other on again
Bm..............D......................A
They’re gonna send us to prison for jerks

[Chorus 1]
..................D.....................Bm........
They’ll find us here here here in the guest room
..................G.....................Em9.......
Where we throw money at each other and cry, oh my

[Verse 2]
Bm..............D.......A....................
We miss being ruffians, going wild and bright
Bm......................D....
In the corners of front yards
........A..................
Getting in and out of cars
Bm............D.........A
We miss being deviants

[Chorus 2]
..................D.....................Bm........
They’ll find us here here here in the guest room
..................G.....................Em9.......
Where we throw money at each other and cry, oh my
...........D...............Bm......................
We can’t stay here, We’re starting to stay the same
...........G.................Em9..................
We can’t stay here, We can’t stay this way


[Interlude]
....Bm....D....A....B....
....Bm....D....A....B....

[Bridge]
......D.............................Bm..........................
Just tie your woman to your wrist, give her room to tie the other
G...........Em9......
Ohhhhhhhhh, oh oh oh

Pretty good tab man, I agree there should be more of the national's on UG but like I said in my "Apartment Story" they are not the easiest band to tab :)

Anyway, while messing around with this tab I think there should be an Asus 002230 (not sure of the name of the chord) above "on again" and Em9 doesn't sound right to me...I think it should be a Bm again or possibly a B7 (224232).

I could be wrong about this, just sound ok when I use these chords.

Yeah I confirm my initial thoughts I think it should be like this:

A Asus
...on again

Bm B7
...and cry, oh my

A Asus
...in and out of cars

B7 Bm
...can't stay this way

Again, could be wrong but these few chords make the tab a little better imo :)

Cheers and thanks again

Chorus: C, Am, F, Am

Interlude: Em, G, D, A
