We Are Scientists – Rules Dont Stop Acoustic chords

Chords
Transpose:
There are only a couple of tabs on here, so I thought I would make one for the acoustic 
version of this song that is correct.

The live amplified version has completely different guitar parts, so this is just the 
chords they use for the acoustic version.

Standard tuning.

Chords used: Am, C, F, Dm, G.

Keith plays the F like this: (x03210)

The strumming pattern is (Down, Up, pause, Up, Up, Down, Up) It helps to watch a YouTube 
video of the band playing this acoustically to get the jist.

Keith and Chris play it with 2 guitars, Keith plays the chords I have tabbed, Chris 
plays the power chord version.


VERSE 1:

Am CDon't be alarmed, it's not the end of the world
F DmIf we're breaking the rules it's fine
F Dm AmI disregard this kind of problem all the time
Am CIt's not as if it's gonna kill anyone
F DmIf there's no victim then there's no crime
F Dm Am GJust draw another if you think we've crossed the line
CHORUS:
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
G Dm C DmDon't stop me, don't stop me
VERSE 2: For this first half of this verse, strum each chord and then quickly mute all the strings (whilst still strumming). It's what Keith plays and it sounds great.
Am CAlthough it may seem unconventional sometimes
F DmIndiscretion is worth a try
F Dm AmIf you just play along I promise we'll be fine
BACK TO NORMAL STRUMMING PATTERN
Am CSo leave your hang-ups back at the door
F DmWhen you and I are down on the floor
F Dm
Am GWell you'll know what to do about it (You know what to do about it)
CHORUS:
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
G Dm C DmDon't stop me, don't stop me
Am x 4 BRIDGE:
F GIt's not as bad as they say
AmIf this is such a mistake
CWhy does it make you so damn happy?
F GThis is no time to behave
AmLet's both get carried away
C (mute after the C)If there's a price to be paid
It won't stop me CHORUS:
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it
FRules don't stop me, forget about it
G Dm C DmDon't stop me, don't stop me
G Dm C GDon't stop me, don't stop me
Dm C Dm G AmThey don't stop me, they don't stop me
