Alkaline Trio – Every Thug Needs A Lady Acoustic chords

Chords
Transpose:
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 :)
