Alkaline Trio - Every Thug Needs A Lady Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The Alkaline Trio were the band that started it all for me.
Many times I have tried to cover a song and many times I have failed until I stumbled
across a YouTube video of the band playing a intimate Record Shop Acoustic session.

The song Every Thug Needs a Lady starts at 23:55.
The video is here for reference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oaqr1rF3No

This is the kind of Acoustic I like to play so I got straight on with transcribing.
I'm pretty much certain I have this nailed and it sounds sick!

Tuning in the video is a step down but if you're just playing it live you can leave
it standard or like I do capo up on 2nd.

The Chord names are just there for reference but these are the actual finger positions.
On the D Chord I like to hang my thumb over the neck to mute the E string.
Hope it all makes sense :)

Intro Riff (G, D, E, C)

            G                        D
I know it's dark here, you know that I'm scared too

    E                         C
For some reason right now, of everything but you

G                D          C
Right now you're all that I recognize

           G                D
You know I came here when I needed your soft voice

  E                             C
I needed to hear something that sounded like an answer

      G              D           C
Now I wait here, and sometimes I get one


BRIDGE


D                 C
It's nothing I'll forget when the moon gets tired

D                        C 
You are stuck to me everyday

D                                 C          G    E
Believe in what I am because it's all that I have today

      C                D           G     C     E
And tomorrow who knows where we'll be

C    E          D      C   D G 
From here I can hardly see a thing 

    C             E                       C
But I will follow anyone who brings me to you

    G       D         C      D      
For now, forever, for on and on and on


Intro Riff again (G, D, E, C)


            G                    D
You know it starts here, outside waiting in the cold

        E                   C
Kiss me once in the snow, I swear it never gets old

           G                 D              C
But I will promise you I can make it warmer next year

           G                D
You know I came here when I needed your soft voice

  E                             C
I needed to hear something that sounded like an answer

      G              D          C
Now I stay here, and everyday I get one


BRIDGE


D                 C
It's nothing I'll forget when the moon gets tired

D                   C
You are stuck to me everyday

D                                 C     G    E
Believe in what I am because it's all I have today

    C                  D           G    C    E
And tomorrow who knows where we'll be

C    E          D      C   D G
From here I can hardly see a thing 

    C             E                       C
But I will follow anyone who brings me to you

    G       D         C      D
For now, forever, for on and on and on


Intro Riff again (G, D, E, C)


      G             D       C
So go plug in your electric blanket

       G                 D               C
We can stay in 'till our southern summer wedding day

   G             D       C
Go plug in your electric blanket

D      G    D    C   D    G
We can stay here
