American Slang(acoustic) by The Gaslight Anthem
I tabbed this from the Sirius radio version on youtube
so watching that might help, it's a bit different from the original 

tuned a full step down in true brian fallon fashion


D,G,A
              Bm
Look what you started,
             G                A
I seem to be coming out of my skin
                    Bm
Look what you’ve forgotten here
             G                  A
The bandages just don’t keep me in

                Bm        
And when it was over 
           G     A
I woke up alone 
                Bm        
And when it was over 
           G     A
I woke up alone 


          Bm           A            G          D
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Bm      A       G       D          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Bm            A             G          D      
I called for my father but my father had died
      G                         A         D
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang


            Bm
Look at the damage,
             G                   A
the fortunes came for the richer men.
                      Bm
while we’re left with gallows,
               G                      A
waiting for us liars to come down and hang.
                Bm        
And when it was over 
           G     A
I woke up alone 
                Bm        
And when it was over 
           G     A
I woke up alone 

  Bm           A            G          D
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Bm      A       G       D          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Bm            A             G          D      
I called for my father but my father had died
      G                         A         D
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang

 

                    Bm         A          G  
And here’s where we died that time last year,
                       Bm         A       G      
And here’s where the angels and devils meet.
            Bm               A            G    
And you can dance with the queen if you need,
               D                G            
And she will always keep your cards
   A            D      
Close to her heart oooh
            G       A                                         
So close to her heart 
                      D
before they tear you apart

D,G,A

(He sings this differently, but the chords are the same)

  Bm           A            G          D
And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive
            Bm      A       G       D          
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm
   Bm            A             G          D      
I called for my father but my father had died
      G                         A         D
While you told me fortunes, in American Slang

 
               G            A       D
You told me fortunes, in American Sla
