John Mayer – Slow Dancing In A Burning Room tab

John Mayer
"Slow Dancing In A Burning Room"
Tabbed by Dave Ross

I've seen some pretty good chords on here, and they sounded really good with the CD, but 
this you don't have to use a capo, and the chords are easy and sound perfect.

Chords I use:

         E A D G B E
         - - - - - -
E-       0 2 2 1 0 0
C#m7-    x 4 6 6 0 0
A add9-  0 7 7 6 0 0
B add11- 0 9 9 8 0 0

Intro - C#m7, Aadd9, E (Repeat)

It's not a silly little moment
             Aadd9            E
It's not the storm before the calm
This is the deep and dying breath of
                          Aadd9   E
This love that we've been working on

(Repeat Chords)
Can't seem to hold you like I want to
So I can feel you in my arms
Nobody's gonna come and save you
We've pulled too many false alarms

We're going down
            C#m7   Aadd9
And you can see it too
We're going down
        C#m7            Aadd9
And you know that we're doomed
   C#m7                         Aadd9   E
My Dear we're slow dancing in a burning room


(Same chords as previous verses)
I was the one you always dreamed of
You were the one I tried to draw
How dare you say it's nothing to me
Baby you're the only light I ever saw

I'll make the most of all the sadness
You'll be a bitch because you can
You try to hit me just to hurt me so you leave me feeling dirty
Because you can't understand


(Intro x2)

   C#m7                         Aadd9 E
Go Cry about it why don't you (repeat 3 times)
   C#m7                         Aadd9   E
My Dear we're slow dancing in a burning room

Intro x4

(Repeat this part maybe 3 or 4 times. )
Don't you think we outta know by now
                             Aadd9         E
Don't you think we should've learned somehow

On the CD it doesn't have a true ending to the song it just fades out, so maybe just end with-

My Dear We're slow dancing in a burning room

Hope you liked the tab, if you think there is anything that could be added to make this 
let me know!
