Iím pretty sure Elliott plays this differently, but I think this sounds pretty
similar to the recording.


Here are the chords first:

A: |-0-| Am: |-0-| Cadd9: |-0-| Em: |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-1-| |-3-| |-5-| |-0-| |-2-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-2-| |-2-| |-5-| or |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-3-| |-2-| |-2-| |---| |---| |---| |-0-| |-0-|
Asus2: |-0-| C: |-3-| Cmaj7: |-0-| D: |-2-| F: |-1-| |-7-| |-1-| |-1-| |-3-| |-1-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-2-| |-7-| |-2-| |-2-| |-0-| |-3-| |-0-| |-3-| |-2-| |(0)| |-3-| |---| |---| |-0-| |---| |-1-|
Note: The chord labeled "Asus2" is not actually Asus2; I just couldn't find a name for it. Now, the sections that go [Em Cmaj Em Cmaj] can be strummed, but Elliott plays something like this:
|-----------------------------------||-------0--------------1------------||-------0-------------------0-------||-------2----------2------------2---||-------2---0h2---------------------||---0---0---------------------------|
Thatís not exact, but itís pretty easy to figure out the strumming if you listen to the song. A Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 No bad dream fucker's going to boss me around A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Christian Brothers going to take him down D F A But it can't help me get over Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Don't be cross, it's sick what I want Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C I've seen the boss blink on and off Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Fake concerns is what's the matter, man A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 And you think I ought to shake your motherfucking hand D F A Well, I know how much you care Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Don't be cross, it's sick what I want Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A I've seen the boss blink on and off Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Come here by me, I want you here Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear Solo: A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 A Am Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 D F A Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Don't be cross, it's sick what I want Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A I've seen the boss blink on and off Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C A Come here by me, I want you here Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear Am Cadd9 Em Asus2 C Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear If you want to play the solo while you strum the chords, here is what I do. Again, itís not exact, but you can figure out how to play it on your own pretty easily.
