Somebody Told Me

The Killers


Intro Riff

 

w/harmonics on 6th string:

Breaking my back just to know your name
Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game

 

Main Riff

 

w/harmonics on 6th string:
I'm breaking my back just to know your name
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Anything goes but don't blink you might miss

 

Main Riff


Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this

 

w/ Transition Riff:
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

Chorus:

                      B5
Well somebody told me

                 G5
You had a boyfriend

                        A5
Who looks like a girlfriend

                   F#5                   B5
That I had in February of last year

                      G5
It's not confidential

                 A5
I've got potential

 

Rest 1 measure


w/harmonics on 6th string:
Ready? Let's roll onto something new

Taking its toll and I'm leaving without you

Main Riff

 

’Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this

w/ Transition Riff:

Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

Chorus:
                      B5
Well somebody told me

                 G5
You had a boyfriend

                        A5
Who looks like a girlfriend

                   F#5              B5
That I had in February of last year

                      G5
It's not confidential

                 A5
I've got potential

                   F#5
A rushin', a rushin' around

w/Bridge Riff
Brace yourself from me
I said maybe baby please
But I just don't know now

When all I wanna do is try

Chorus x3

 

End on B5:   D D
