Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/t/the+gaslight+anthem/45_21018315.html

Song tuned 1 step down D G C F A D

F on verse played high, power chord on the 8th fret. Chorus played low, power chord on the 1st fret. I assume you know what that means without me tabbing it out.

Intro/riff (repeat as needed)
---------------
---------------
--5--5---5-5
-3--3---3-3
5--3--5--3
---------------

F Dm

F
Have you seen my hands?
Dm
Just look at 'em shake.
F
and the song just keeps on repeating,
Dm
drop the needle again.
F
and I dance with your ghost,
Dm
oh, but that ain't the way…
Bb C
I can't move on and I can't stay the same.

and all my friends say…

Dm Bb F C
"Hey hey, turn the record over.
Dm Bb F C
Hey hey, and I'll see you on the flip side.
F C Dm Bb
There you go, turn the key and engine over.
F C Dm Bb
Let her go, let somebody else lay at her feet."

Repeat riff

F
Have you seen my heart,
Dm
have you seen how it bleeds?
F
And the nights are so long, baby,
Dm
Out here in the deep.
F
the tick, ticking of hours, lonely.
Dm
I hear the alarm
Bb C
I used to hear when she would sleep in my arms.

But "better sense" says…

Dm Bb F C
"Hey hey, turn the record over.
Dm Bb F C
Hey hey, and I'll see you on the flip side.
F C Dm Bb
There you go, turn the key and engine over.
F C Dm Bb
Let her go, let somebody else lay at her feet."

Solo. Chords: Dm A Bb C x2

Riff

and all my friends say,

Dm Bb F C
"Hey hey, turn the record over.
Dm Bb F C
Hey hey, and I'll see you on the flip side.
F C Dm Bb
There you go, turn the key and engine over.
F C Dm Bb
Let her go, let somebody else lay at her feet."

Outro Chords: F Bb repeat end on Dm

Where you used to be…here with me.

I had attempted to place the chords above the lyrics, but the formatting got hosed when I posted. You'll just have to follow along for the changes.

You can also put a capo on the 3rd fret and play:
Verse:
C, Am, C, Am, C, Am, G, F, G
Chorus:
Am-F-C-G(x2) C, G, Am, F
Bridge:
Am, Em, F, G
there are some more nuances in the verses you can hear when you're playing along involving G and B, but that's the gist of it

Yea that works too, but given Brian's predilection to D tuning, i'm fairly certain that's how he plays it. I tuned my guitar to D before I even tried figuring out the chords, safe bet with Gaslight.

Definitely. i figured out most Gaslight songs using a Capo on the 3rd fret first, then figured them out the regular way too Smile

Here are some covers I've done, there is a fair mix of both D tuned (some C tuned) and capo on the 3rd fret.

He plays it in Eb, tuned a full step down with capo 1 (or just half step down), in a E chord progression. EDIT: I originally said "D chord progression," but I get mixed up sometimes since I have my guitar tuned to D standard.

correct me if i'm wrong, but he plays with capo 1 in whole step down tuning, so it's half step down, but he plays all barre chords, so it can be played in standard, and the chord progression is D Eb Bb Cm, right?

There is already a bunch of covers of this on youtube and a pretty good guitar pro on ultimate-guitar.com.

Download tux guitar. It's open source software that let's you open files like power tabs and guitar pro. Go to ultimate-guitar.com and try those files (they show you the tab but also sync it up with audio so you can easily figure out things like strumming/pacing).

Watch some YouTube covers or maybe some videos of the band.

Other than that, just keep practicing. There's really no good way for someone to textually describe a strumming pattern.
