    The verses all follow the same pattern. Listen to the song to figure out the exact
    timings, this is just a rough guide.
    CEb
    Follow me into the desert 
    BbC
    As thirsty as you are 
    CEb
    Crack a smile and cut your mouth 
    BbC
    And drown in alcohol 
    And so on and so forth. Now, the trick is to hit the low string/s (i'm very lazy!)
    twice each time you make a chord change. 'duh duh strum strum strum'. Except maybe
    on that second C in each section, it just sounds like strumming to me. Listen to
    the song, you'll figure it out!
    Pre Chorus:
    This is a little tricky. There are some odd timings here. Having the song is
    helpful, but I strongly recommend the Guitar Pro tab, its really good for figuring
    out the timing of the last bit.
    This from the chords ver 2 tab seems to work well enough:
    EbC
    Oh no 
    EbC
    There she goes 
    Then the tricky bit:
    EbCEbCCCEbCEbCCCEbCCCEbCCCGEbC
    Out in the sunshine the sun is mine the sun is mine 
    This is a good chorus, with that great little descending tune after each line.
    Again, this is very rough timing for the chord changes, listen to song! Its pretty
    simple here.
    CBbAbEbBbF#F
    I shot my love today would you cry for me 
    CBbAbEbBbF#F
    I lost my head again would you lie for me 
    CBbAbEbBbF#F
    I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand 
    CBbAbEbBbF#F
    I lost my head again would you cry for me 
    At the end of playing the A# slide down to the G#. Then continue to play the G# as
    per the song.
    Taken pretty much from chords ver 2
    Play each chord 3 times
    CEb
    Just a burden in my hand 
    CAb
    Just an anchor on my heart 
    CAbBbF#F
    Just a tumor in my head 
    Ab
    Last chorus - repeat the second part of the last line; thats the part from 
    C
    onwards ('would you cry for me'). Then right at the end, it sounds like another 
    EbC
    , like in the prechorus. 
    Thats it! Well, not really, but from there you can figure it out, and be as
    accurate or as lazy as you please. Hope this helps someone, I really just wanted
    to play that great chorus riff without re-tuning and such.
