Arctic Monkeys – Cornerstone chords
I should note before this that this is not my work, credit should go to 'mellon_c' of official Arctic Monkeys forum, I'm simply posting it here to share with a wider audience, I did was fit music to lyrics. It's also not my responsibility if you don't have the it leaked a few days ago and you can probably still find it about on various sites.

You may want to work out strumming and timing for yourself especially in the bridge and where it gets a bit different. It's overall a pretty simple song from the new album.
