~ Riptide - Vance Joy ~

Capo 6

Great song from an unearthed artist :)

The whole song is basically the same chords over and over.

Em Cadd9 G

* = Strum Once 

The intro is just that chord progression repeated twice
and the verse goes the same. I'm really unsure of the lyrics...

Em              Cadd9             G
I was scared of dentists and the dark
Em              Cadd9             G
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Em         Cadd9                G
Oh all my friends are turning green
       Em              Cadd9             G
You must've [something something] in our dreams
  Em     Cadd9     G
Uh oooh oh oooh oooh
Em         Cadd9           G*
Oh oooh oh oooh and they come unstuck
Em     Cadd9                 G
Lady, runnin' down to the riptide
G                  Em
Taken away to the dark side
Cadd9           G
I wanna be your left hand man
       Em       Cadd9                     G
And I love you when you're singin' that song and
                      Em
I gotta lump in my throat cos
Cadd9                      G
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Em                 Cadd9               G
There's this movie that I think you'll like
     Em             Cadd9            G
This guy decides to quit his job and head to New York City
      Em       Cadd9       G
This cowboy's running from himself
Em                Cadd9          G
She's been living on the highest shelf
