C5  D5


[Verse 1]

C5                                         D5
Eighties people dancing, oooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, always get it right
                 C5                               D5      
I'd listen but I can't tonight, I can't tonight, I can't tonight
          C5                              D5      
Well it’s something that you do to get it right
         C5                            D5      
End up reviled for it, yeah that's the thanks I get


[Chorus 1] (see chord definition above for different A# shapes)

A#              C    
   I don't understand
               Dm                    A#
Your fucked-up system, this sinister city
                A#                     C    
Try to sell the water, try to sell the air
                 Dm                        
Try to sell your daughter, try to sell her hair


[Verse 2]

C5  D5

C5                                       D5
We all want to watch the fight, is it on Sunday?
C5                                     D5
Hide in a hole with a gun in your hand in front of someone you want dead
C5                      D5
I guess, hiding in your suit


[Solo]

C5  D5
C5  D5


[Verse 3]

  C5                                     D5
I did not know that, they’re bringing me back to my past
                    C5                                                 D5
I got my head in my hand, I got my head in my-, I- I got my head in my hand
                                                C5                              D5
I got my head in-, I got my head in-, it’s just something that you do to get it right
         C5                            D5      
End up reviled for it, yeah that's the thanks I get


[Chorus 2] (see chord definition above for different A# shapes)

A#                    C    
Jail, that's what you get
                Dm                     A#
Stepping to the system, profiting from war
                A#                     C    
Fighting as the victim, always wanting more
                Dm                                  A#
Trying to trick your brothers, get them to fight it for ya


[Bridge]

A#
I cannot believe my eyes
C
Darling I can tell you lies
Dm
Coast to coast, L.A. to Chicago
Dm
I don't know geography all that well


[Outro]

A#      C
Yeahhh, yeah
                Dm                      A#
Defying Western logic, even if it shows you’re wrong
                 A#                         C    
I guess that's a classic, been with us all along

D5  C5

Chorus sounds weird. Wouldn't it be?:

A# C
I don't understand
Dm A#
Your fucked-up system, this sinister city
C Dm
Try to sell the water, try to sell the air
A# C
Try to sell your daughter, try to sell her hair

I agree it's weird to continue the A# ending the second line into the third. I do think that's the note though but in a different chord voicing (captures the change in the bass note). I've tried to clarify this in the chord description at the top.

oh man, now it is perfect! thanks for this chord of (IMHO) the best Strokes song since 2007!
