    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

                1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
