No chord
Standard guitar tuning:
E
A
D
G
B
E
No capo
Chords used: Am, C, F, Dm, G. Keith plays the F like this: (x03210) The strumming pattern is (Down, Up, pause, Up, Up, Down, Up) It helps to watch a YouTube video of the band playing this acoustically to get the jist. Keith and Chris play it with 2 guitars, Keith plays the chords I have tabbed, Chris plays the power chord version.

Verse 1

AmDon't be alarmed, it's not the Cend of the world If we're bFreaking the rules it's Dmfine FI disregard this kind Dmof problem all the tiAmme AmIt's not as if it's gonna Ckill anyone If there's no Fvictim then there's no crDmime FJust draw another if you tDmhink we've crossed the liAmne G

Chorus

FRules don't stop me, forget about it CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it FRules don't stop me, forget about it GDon't sDmtop meC, don't sDmtop me

Verse 2

For this first half of this verse, strum each chord and then quickly mute all the strings (whilst still strumming). It's what Keith plays and it sounds great. AmAlthough it may seem unconventiConal sometimes FIndiscretion is worth a tDmry FIf you just play alongDm I promise we'll be fAmine BACK TO NORMAL STRUMMING PATTERN AmSo leave your hang-ups back at Cthe door FWhen you and I are down on the floDmor

F Dm

AmWell yGou'll know what to do about it (You know what to do about it)

Chorus

FRules don't stop me, forget about it CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it FRules don't stop me, forget about it GDon't sDmtop meC, don't sDmtop me Am x 4

Bridge

FIt's not as bad as they sGay If this is such a misAmtake Why does it make you Cso damn happy? FThis is no time to behaveG Let's both get carried awaAmy If there's a price to be paCid C It won't stop me

Chorus

FRules don't stop me, forget about it CRules don't stop me, we'll get around it FRules don't stop me, forget about it GDon't sDmtop meC, don't sDmtop me GDon't stoDmp me,C donG't stop me DmThey don't sCtop me, tDmhey don't stoGp me Am
