                             Happy Ending : The Strokes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nitromuse
E-mail: nitromuse@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

TRIVIAL DISCLAIMER:
- I mislabeled this as "Tab" not "Chords" and can't figure out how to change it.

This is my first tab, so I'm excited. 
This also means I'll be happy to edit this with any corrections you send my way. 
Not everything is here, but there is enough to do while you're not singing. 
Go me. 


For the verses you can play the chorus chords instead if you like their sound.
Just playing the Em and D for the verse adds some contrast to the chorus. 
I like this for acoustic playing.
 

Additionally, here are the shapes I play:


        Em  D  F#m A  A*  G*  Bm  F#m7* F#m7

[Verse One]
Em               D                 
Say it all       Just get it all off your chest
Em                     D              
Shake it up        500,000 times
Em                         D

G               A             F#m                        G

    Somethings          I don't wanna know
Em     A*   D  G*             
Baby,             tell me if you're sure

[Verse Two]
Em               D                 
Say it all       I'm not awake anymore
Em                                D              
Change my mind              2,000 times before
Em                         D                   
Seen a knight        Dance on the side of the road
G               A             F#m                      G
Teenagers       Come all ages

Watch you as you sleep
Em                    A* (F#m7*)
Faces at your door
D                             G* (F#m7*)
Waitin' for your piece
G                             A  (F#m7)

G                   A     A           Bm
Cause I don't wanna see everybody get together
G                  A         A              Bm
Leave these dreams alone. You don't have to tell me that
