I have read about 20 Beck lost cause
tabs and none of them sound right. Every
tab had something good in it so basically
I put together every lost cause tab I could
find to make this one. It's not exact but,
it's better than anything else I've been able
to find and I hope you enjoy. 

*This tab seems really long but it's really
just one riff played in different chord 
forms with slight variations.*

Lyrics

Your sorry eyes cut through the bone
Make it hard to leave you alone
Leave you here wearing your wounds
Waving your guns at somebody new

chorus:

Baby you're a lost, baby you're a lost
Baby you're a lost cause

There's too many people you used to know
They see you coming, they see you go
They know your secrets, and you know theirs
This town is crazy, nobody cares

chorus:
I'm tired of fighting, I'm tired of fighting
Fighting for a lost cause

There's a place you are going
You ain't never been before
No one laughing at your back now
No on's standing at your door
That's what you thought love was for

chorus:
I'm tired of fighting, I'm tired of fighting
Fighting for a lost cause

almost, but the chorus is off, the way he plays it and what sounds best is sliding down the fmaj7 2 frets

also he plays it with a capo on the second fret
