The Strokes - Modern Age


[Intro]

D7 D9 D7 D9 (x2)
D Dsus2 D Dsus2 G6 G5 G6 G5 (x2)


[Verse 1]

D             Dsus2
Up on a hill, here's where we begin
D                  Dsus2              
This little story, a long time ago

[Interlude]
G6   G5   G6  G5

D                 Dsus2
Start to pretend, start pretending
D                  Dsus2                    
It seems this game is simply neverending

[Interlude]
G6   G5   G6

G5          D                     Dsus2
   Oh, in the sun sun having fun, it's in my blood
D                     Dsus2
I just can't help it, don't want you here right now
    G6
Let me go
      G5
Let me go go go go go go go go


[Pre-Chorus]
G


[Chorus]

               D/F#
Leaving just in time
               Em
Stay there for a while
              Dmaj7/F#
Rolling in the ocean
                   A
Trying to catch her eye
                    D/F#
Work hard and say it's easy
                 Em
Do it just to please me
                Dmaj7/F#
Tomorrow will be different
                A
So I'll pretend I'm leaving


[Solo]
D  (x8)
G5 (x8)


[Verse 2]

       D
I feel so different now
              Dsus2
We trained at AVA
           D
I wish you hadn't stayed 
            Dsus2                  G6   
My vision's clearer now but I'm unafraid

[Interlude]
G5   G6  G5

D                 Dsus2
Flyin' over seas, no time to feel the breeze
D               Dsus2            
I took too many varieties  

[Interlude]
G6   G5   G6

G5          D                     Dsus2
   Oh, in the sun sun having fun, it's in my blood
D                     Dsus2
I just can't help it, don't want you here right now
       G6         G5
Let me go, wooooooooo
             
Darling let me go go go go go go go go


[Chorus]

               D/F#
Leaving just in time
               Em
Stay there for a while
              Dmaj7/F#
Rolling in the ocean
                   A
Trying to catch her eye
                    D/F#
Work hard and say it's easy
                 Em
Do it just to please me
                Dmaj7/F#
Tomorrow will be different
                A
So I'll pretend I'm leaving

it doesnt sound that bad actually a little better than mine. It was the first time tried chording something. I actually think though that instead of Dsus2 in the song i would use D7 i think it sounds alot better.
good chords otherwise.
