Bm Bm7* Bm7 F#7 G*
i got stuck on the si----de you know i never chose
D D/C# riff1 D* D** D E* E** G D D/A D

Alternate Version:
by ignoring the variations elliott plays on the high e-string you can play it like
that
in this case you wouldn't have to tune your high e-string to an c# just to an Eb!!
and so you could use the classic chords
it sounds good as well and its less complicated
[D]youll [D/Ab]take [/A]ad-[D/B]vantage [D]til you [E]think you?re being [G]used
[D]cos wit[D/Ab]hout [/A]an [D/B]enemy your [E]anger gets conf[G]used
[Bm]i got s[Bm7]tuck on the side you k[F#7]now i never c[G]hose
its [D]all [D/C#]about tak[Bm]ing the [D]easy way [E]out for you[G] i su[D]ppose
etc.......
