This River Is Wild  The Killers

Haven't seen the chords for this song anywhere so I decided to do it on my own. It
was kinda hard to get the chords right, but just listen to the song while you play
it the first times and you will get it. By the way, I wasn't good enough to find
out the chords for the outro. Sorry for that.
Intro (this might look tricky but you simply play each chord for each note):
[Cm] [Bb/D] [Bb] [Cm] [Ab] [Ab] [Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Cm] [Cm] [Bb/D] [Bb] [Cm] [Ab] [Ab] [Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Eb] 
[Eb]Leaves are fallin' down on the beautiful ground
I heard a [Cm]story from the man in red
He said "The l[Eb]eaves are fallin' down
Such a beautiful sound
Son, I [Cm]think you'd better go ahead
But you [Eb]always hold your head up high
'Cause it's a [Cm]long, long, long way down
This town was [Eb]meant for passing through
Boy it ain't nothin' new
Now go and [Cm]show 'em that the world stayed round
But it's a l[Ab]ong, long, long way [Gm]down[Fm] [Eb] [Eb] [Ab] [Gm] [Bb]
You better [Eb]run for the hills
Before they burn
Listen to the [Cm]sound of the world
Don't watch it turn
I just want to [Fm]show you what [Gm]I know
And catch you when the [Ab]current
Lets you[Bb] go
Or should I just [Eb]get along with myself
I never did [Cm]get along with everybody else
I've been tryin' [Eb]hard to do what's right
But you know [Cm]I could stay here, all night[Ab]
And watch the clouds fall from the [Fm]sky
This [Bb]river is wild[Eb] [Cm]
This river is wild Eb Cm Bb
[Eb]Run for the hills before they burn
Listen to the [Cm]sound of the world
Don't watch it turn
I shake a little
[Eb]Sometimes I'm nervous when I talk
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/k/killers/this_river_is_wild_crd.html )
I shake a little
[Cm]Sometimes I hate the line I walk
I just want to [Fm]show you what [Gm]I know
And catch you when the [Ab]current
Lets you[Bb] go
Or should I just [Eb]get along with myself
I never did [Cm]get along with everybody else
I've been tryin' [Eb]hard to do what's right
But you know [Cm]I could stay here, all night[Ab]
And watch the clouds fall from the [Fm]sky[Bb]
Because this river is w[Cm]ild[Bb/D] [Bb] [Cm] [Ab]
Godspeed ya, [Ab]boy[Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Cm]
This river is [Cm]wil[Bb/D]d[Bb] [Cm] [Ab] [Ab] [Bb] [Gm] [Ab]
[Eb]Now Adam's taking bombs and he's stuck on his mom
Because that [Cm]bitch keeps tryin' to make him pray
He's with the [Eb]hippie in the park combing over the dark
Just tryin' to [Cm]get some of that little-girl play
You better r[Ab]un for the hills b[Gm]efore they burn
Listen to the [Fm]sound of the world
Don't w[Eb]atch it turn
I just want to [Fm]show you what [Gm]I know
And catch you when the [Ab]current
Lets you[Bb] go
Or should I [Eb]get along with myself
I never did [Ab]get along with every[Gm]body else
I've been tryin' [Bb]hard to do what's r[Cm]ight
But you know [Eb]I could stay here[Ab]
All night
[Ab]And watch the clouds fall from the [Fm]sky[Bb]
[Ab]This pain is hell in me ton[Bb]ight
Because this river is w[Cm]ild[Bb/D] [Bb] [Cm] [Ab]
Godspeed ya, [Ab]boy[Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Cm]
This river is [Cm]wil[Bb/D]d[Bb] [Cm] [Ab] [Ab] [Bb] [Gm] [Ab]
Because this river is w[Cm]ild[Bb/D] [Bb] [Cm] [Ab]
Godspeed ya, [Ab]boy[Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Cm]
This river is [Cm]wil[Bb/D]d[Bb] [Cm] [Ab] [Ab] [Bb] [Gm] [Ab] [Eb]
And cars are everywhere
Raisin' dust at the fairground
I don't think I ever seen so many headlights
But there's somethin' pullin' me
The circus and the crew
Well they're just passin' through
Makin' sure the merry still goes 'round
But it's a long, long, long way down
