Strokes - Under Cover Of Darkness tab

Tabbed by Macca!

Most of it sounds right to me, I couldn't figure out the little riff during the 
verses but hopefully somebody else will soon!

 B
Slip back out of whack at your best
 Ebm
It's a nightmare
 G#m                 E
So I'm joining the army

 B
Know how folks back out, I still call
 Ebm
Will you hate for me now?

 G#m                       C#m
We got the righteous advice to use it
 G#m                       C#m
Got everything but you can just choose it
 B
I won't tie me a puppet on a string

 G#m  E  B  F#
Don't go that way
 G#m  E  B  F#
I'll wait for you

  G#m
And I'm tired of all your friends
   E
They're still at your door
   B             F#
And I won't, I better call you
  G#m      E      B       F#
So long my friend and adversary
B
But I will call you

( B  C#m )

B
Get dressed jump out of bed and do it best
Ebm
Are you ok?
G#m                       C#m
I've been out around this town
G#m                           C#m        B
Everybody's been singing the same song ten years

 G#m   E   B  F#
I'll wait for you
 G#m   E   B  F#
Will you wait for me too?

 G#m
And they sacrifice their lives
 E
In our land are all closed eyes

 B F#
I've been saying we're beaten down, I won't say it again

 G#m     E   B
So long, my end
 F#
The sorry embrace
