3-4 Tango chords – Polar Bear Club

 Song: 3-4 Tango
Artist: Polar Bear Club
 Clash Battle Guilt Pride

Standard chords throughout.

I like to palm-mute the verses and I substitute the high E on the C chord 
from the chorus for a G:

    C  
E|-0->-3-|
B|-1---1-|
G|-0---0-|
D|-2---2-|
A|-3---3-|
E|-x---x-|

Intro:  Em  -  G  -  Am  -  C E5                                  
Arthur climbs the stairs in the back
 G5                             
Wipes his feet on the welcome mat
 A5                                
Puts his keys on the shelf that he built
 C5 
Checks the plants on the windowsill

 E5                                         
Catches a glimpse of himself in the glass
 G5 
Laughs cause his hair's stickin' up in the back
 A5 
He can't call his kids or his wife
            C5 
Cause he'd drink 'till he'd cry to his daughter

About God and life

[Chorus]

 C 
A silhouette of innocence
 G 
A shaving cut on common sense
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D                                
Laughing hardest to the comic's intro
 C 
A winter walk to clear your mind
 G 
Do your twenties suck until twenty-nine?
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D Em 
Dance your heart out to the 3-4 Tango

 Em 

(E5 - G5 - A5 - C5 through the 2nd verse, in the same manner as the 1st)

Sara disowned her whole family
And then her brother the writer penned the story 
She said, "you just sit there and think that you
Know about people when really
You wanna hold the mirror to nature
Thinking you're the next Miller or Shakespeare
Will the glass ever come to you?
Cause who knows what you'd do?"

[Chorus]

 C 
A silhouette of innocence
 G 
A shaving cut on common sense
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D                                
Laughing hardest to the comic's intro
 C 
A winter walk to clear your mind
 G 
Do your twenties suck until twenty-nine?
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D                                
Dance your heart out to the 3-4 Tango

 D  -  C5 G5 A5 
It's that haunting thought and familiar ghost
                D5 C5 G5 
That holds you hard and can't let you go,
         A5 D5 
Let you go!
(Hey!)

 C  -  G  -  Am  -  D  x2

 C                         
Some use crowds of strangers
        Em 
Like a shield 
      Am Em 
From love and being loved,
       Am 
Being loved

[Chorus]

 C 
A silhouette of innocence
 G 
A shaving cut on common sense
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D                                
Laughing hardest to the comic's intro
 C 
A winter walk to clear your mind
 G 
Do your twenties suck until twenty-nine?
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D C  
Dance your heart out to the 3-4 Tango

 C 
A silhouette of innocence
 G 
A shaving cut on common sense
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D                                
Laughing hardest to the comic's intro
 C 
A winter walk to clear your mind
 G 
Do your twenties suck until twenty-nine?
 Am 
Holding what can't let you go
 D Em 
Dance your heart out to the 3-4 Tango
