Depending on which recording you're listening to, he may or may not be playing a half 
step up. So you
 can either throw a capo on 1 if you want, or just fiddle with the tuning, or (my 
personal fave) just go
for it in open tuning.
The only chords you use in this song are Am, G, C, and very briefly F. (If you're 
feelin' fancy, you can
 play the Fadd9 that he uses, but whatev). Also, I would tab out the fingerpicking, and 
I might do it
later, but I just figured this out on my ukulele and I'm too lazy to go get my guitar 
and figure it out
 right now.




    


Am           G                   C (x2)

Am                    G                       C

I was scared of dentists and the dark,
Am                    G                       C

I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations,
Am                    G                       C

Oh all my friends are turning green,
Am                    G                       C

You're the magicians assistant in their dreams.



    

Am     G    C

Ooh, ooh ooh
Am    G           C (hold)
Ooh, and they come unstuck

Am   G                        C

Lady, running down to the riptide,
C                      Am
taken away to the dark side,
G                    C

I wanna be your left hand man.
Am           G                             C

I love you when you're singing that song and,
C                        Am
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
G                            C

you're gonna sing the words wrong

Am                         G                       C

There's this movie that I think you'll like,
Am                         G                       C

this guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City,
Am                 G                       C

this cowboy's running from himself.
Am                             G                       C

And she's been living on the highest shelf

Am     G    C

Ooh, ooh ooh
Am G           C (hold)
Ooh, and they come unstuck

Am     G                              C

Lady, running down to the riptide,
C                           Am
taken away to the dark side,
G                       C

I wanna be your left hand man.
Am             G                                  C

I love you when you're singing that song and,

Fingerpicking

Am                                   G

I just wanna, I just wanna know,
C                                                 F

If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay,
Am                                   G

I just gotta, I just gotta know,
C                                                F (strum and hold)
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way

Strum once and hold:
Am                  G                     C

I swear she's destined for the screen,
Am                      G                           C

Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh


Am     G                              C

Lady, running down to the riptide,

Also excuse the weird spacing of the chords.  Just listen to zee song and you will get 
it in no time at all.

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You're the magician's assistant in their dreams

Oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

There's this movie that I think you'll like
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy's running from himself
And she's been living on the highest shelf

Oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way
I swear she's destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong
I got a lump in my throat because you're gonna sing the words wrong
