                             COUGH SYRUP - Young the Giant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:McAvro

Tuning:Standard
Capo at 2

The other tabs for this song didn't quite get the right picking pattern.  
I'm fairly certain that the intro is correct, 
although the strumming pattern after the first chorus is open for interpretation.  
Any corrections are welcome.

[Verse 1]

C                                    G
Life's too short to even care at all oh
F                                        G
I'm losing my mind losing my mind losing control
C                                             G
These fishes in the sea they're staring at me oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
F                                      G
A wet world aches for a beat of a drum Oh


[Chorus]

Am
If I could find a way to see this straight
G
I'd run away
                     F      
To some fortune that I 
Am                G
should have found by now
                 F         Am            G
I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down

[Verse 2]
(Strumming)

C                                    G
Life's too short to even care at all oh
F                                          G
I'm coming up now coming up now out of the blue oh
C                                              
These zombies in the park they're looking for my heart
G
Oh oh oh oh
F                                          G
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun oh oh


[Chorus]

Am
If I could find a way to see this straight
G
I'd run away
                     F          Am            G
To some fortune that I I should have found by now

                                           Am  
And so I run to the things they said could restore me
                 G
Restore life the way it should be
                     F     Am            G
I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down


[Verse 3]
(Picking)

C                                    G
Life's too short to even care at all oh
F                                        G
I'm losing my mind losing my mind losing control


[Interlude]

C G F C G 3x


[Chorus]

Am (one strum)
If I could find a way to see this straight
G (one strum)
I'd run away
G                    F               Am       G
To some fortune that I I should have found by now

                                       Am
So I run to the things they said could restore me
                 G
Restore life the way it should be
                     F     Am         G
I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down


[Outro]
(picking)

C                                      G
One more spoon of cough syrup now whoa oh
F                                      G
One more spoon of cough syrup now whoa oh
