Here is Allen Stone's "Running Game" from his debut album.  Please Rate/ Comment!  
This is by ear so any adjustments let me know, though it's a pretty easy song. 

Tuning: Standard

Chords: 

Am7:  575555
Dm7: X57565
G: 355433
*G: 455433  (G# is added for just a slight suspension, I'll notate it in the song with the asterisk)
Em7: X79787
D#m7: X68676
E7: X79797

*I've included the riff he plays during the verses.  For simplicity sake it's broken down into three 
sections which I will notate in the lyrics.  There are some alterations made based on syllables so
section 3 is played differently throughout the verses but you'll get the idea.*
