Vance Joy – Riptide Chords

Lyrics and chords:

[Intro]

Am G C C x2

[Verse 1]

Am G C
I was scared of dentists and the dark,
Am G C
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations,
Am G C
Oh all my friends are turning green,
Am G C
You’re the magicians assistant in their dreams.

[Bridge]

Am G C
Ooh, ooh ooh
Am G C
Ooh, and they come unstuck

[Chorus]

Am G C
Lady, running down to the riptide,
C Am
taken away to the dark side,
G C
I wanna be your left hand man.
Am G C
I love you when you’re singing that song and,
C Am
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
G C
you’re gonna sing the words wrong

[Verse 2]

Am G C
There’s this movie that I think you’ll like,
Am G C
this guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City,
Am G C
this cowboy’s running from himself.
Am G C
And she’s been living on the highest shelf

[Bridge]

Am G C
Ooh, ooh ooh

If you’re gonna, if you’re gonna stay,

I can’t have it, I can’t have it any other way

Am G C
I swear she’s destined for the screen,

Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you’ve ever seen, oh
