Arctic Monkeys "Crying Lightning" chords and lyrics

"Crying Lightning" is the first single from the Arctic Monkeys 2009 album "Humbug".

The Arctic Monkeys are one of my favourite bands, and even though their quirky manic brand of rock doesn't lend itself terribly well to 'busking' on an acoustic, I've managed to work out pretty playable versions of 8 of their songs, which are on my Arctic Monkeys song chords page.

The most recent of these is "Crying Lightning", you can try out my simplified version of this one at the link below:

Guitar Chords and Lyrics for Arctic Monkeys "Crying Lightning" - new single from "Humbug"

If the video above fails to play, you can play along with the song on This Youtube Link

Though I've tried to present it as simply as possible, it might be a bit of a stretch if you're in the early learning stages. Chords are A, F, G, C, G#, E, Am, and Dm.
