I understand that some people who don't have access to a capo (makeshift or otherwise!) would like to play this song, so here's my version. The album version is tuned a half step down, but you can choose whether or not you'd like to play it that way. EbAbDbGbBbeb WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG SAM'S TOWN THE KILLERS 2006 F G Am You sit there in your heartache C F Waiting on some beautiful boy to F G Am save you from your old ways C You play forgiveness F Watch it now ... here he comes! F G Am He doesn't look a thing like Jesus C But he talks like a gentleman F G Am C F Like you imagined when you were young F Can we climb this mountain G Am I don't know C F Higher now than ever before F G Am I know we can make it if we take it slow C Let's take it easy F Easy now, watch it go F G Am We're burning down the highway skyline C On the back of a hurricane that started turning F G Am C F When you were young F G Am C F When you were young F G And sometimes you close your eyes Am C F and see the place where you used to live F G Am C F When you were young Filler*: F Em Dm C Am (Bm) G Dm They say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet Dm Am You don't have to drink right now Am (C?) But you can dip your feet F Every once in a little while F G Am C F F G Am You sit there in your heartache C F Waiting on some beautiful boy to F G Am To save you from your old ways C You play forgiveness F Watch it now here he comes F G Am He doesn't look a thing like Jesus C But he talks like a gentleman F G Am Like you imagined when you were young C F (He talks like a gentlemen, like you imagined when) F G Am C F When you were young F Am G C F I said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus F Am G C F He doesn't look a thing like Jesus F Em Dm C (Bm) Am G But more than you'll ever know * I made the Bm chord in the filler optional. It's how it's supposed to be played, but if like me you find the transitions harder with the Bm in there, then leave it out. It's fine either way :) I'm also open to any corrections, but I'm fairly sure that this is around 98% accurate. Thanks for playing this!
