Killers - When You Were Young Acoustic chords


I understand that some people who don't have access to a capo (makeshift or 
otherwise!) would like to play this song, so here's my version. The album version 
is tuned a half step down, but you can choose whether or not you'd like to play it that way.

WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG
SAM'S TOWN
THE KILLERS
2006

F G AmYou sit there in your heartache
C F Waiting on some beautiful boy to
F G Amsave you from your old ways
CYou play forgiveness
FWatch it now ... here he comes!
F G AmHe doesn't look a thing like Jesus
C But he talks like a gentleman
F G Am C FLike you imagined when you were young
FCan we climb this mountain
G AmI don't know
C FHigher now than ever before
F G AmI know we can make it if we take it slow
CLet's take it easy
FEasy now, watch it go
F G AmWe're burning down the highway skyline
COn the back of a hurricane that started turning
F G Am C FWhen you were young
F G Am C FWhen you were young
F GAnd sometimes you close your eyes
Am C Fand see the place where you used to live
F G Am C FWhen you were young
Filler*: F Em Dm C Am (Bm) G
DmThey say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet
Dm AmYou don't have to drink right now
Am (C?)But you can dip your feet
FEvery once in a little while
F G Am C F
F G AmYou sit there in your heartache
C FWaiting on some beautiful boy to
F G AmTo save you from your old ways
CYou play forgiveness
FWatch it now here he comes
F G AmHe doesn't look a thing like Jesus
CBut he talks like a gentleman
F G Am Like you imagined when you were young
C F(He talks like a gentlemen, like you imagined when)
F G Am C FWhen you were young
F Am G C FI said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus
F Am G C FHe doesn't look a thing like Jesus
F Em Dm C (Bm) Am GBut more than you'll ever know
* I made the Bm chord in the filler optional. It's how it's supposed to be
played, but if like me you find the transitions harder with the Bm in there, then leave it out. It's fine either way :)
I'm also open to any corrections, but I'm fairly sure that this is around 98% accurate. Thanks for playing this!
