Am G C
Am G C

[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 magician's assistant in their dreams

[Pre-chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Am    G                   C
Lady, running down to the riptide, taken away
       Am         G               C
To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man
  Am       G                        C
I love you when you're singing that song, and I got a lump
      Am             G                     C
In my throat, 'cause 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

[Pre-chorus]

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

To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man
  Am       G                        C
I love you when you're singing that song, and I got a lump

In my throat, 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

C

[Bridge]

Am                         G
I just wanna, I just wanna know
C                                F
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
Am                         G
I just gotta, I just gotta know
C                                F
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way

[Pre-chorus] (strum once and hold)

  Am          G                C
I swear she's destined for the screen
Am               G                 C
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

[Chorus]

Am    G                   C
Lady, running down to the riptide, taken away

To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man

To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man

In my throat, 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong
