Okay, so I know Big Wreck plays in a really weird tuning, but I made this simplified
version for anyone that wants to play it with ease. It's a half-step up from the
original song. However, if you want to play it with the original tuning, the fretting
of the special notes (see next) remains the same.

In this chord diagram I have placed footnote numbers (1) and (2). See the bottom
or details.

INTRO: (1)

            (1)
So we were on our way home

On the right bus

I just want to ask the driver
 
If it's not too much fuss
   G  
To drop me at the old lady's

And pick me up tomorrow
            (1)
If you could, If you could


      A
It's all by design
    Bm  D       G         D
To keep me from losing my mind

            D
Well I was on my way there

And it was just around the corner

I caught a funny stare 

And started a fight with the owner

              G
Well it's the whole nine yards
                                 D   (2)   (2)
And I fold all my cards in your face,   oh
          G     
'Cause I love what is real

And I loved you my dear
                         D (2)
Before you were replaced
                      
Oh, you were replaced

          A
And it's all by design
    Bm  D        G         D
To keep me from losing my mind

      D
So I saw you over there

And acted like I don't care

'Cause I've never seen something that made me stare

[SOLO- Sorry, I couldn't tab this if I tried, I'm not that good!]

                  G
Yeah, so then we run through your backyards
                                     D  (2)
And throw all my best cards in your face
                 
Yeah in your face
           G
Because I love what is real

And I loved you my dear before I was replaced
               D (2)
I was replaced

          A
And it's all by design
    Bm   D       G             D (2)
To keep me from losing my mind
      A                
It's all by design 
    Bm  D        G         D
To keep us from losing our minds

        D
We were on our way home

And we were on the right bus

I just want to tell the driver

Don't bother 'cause it's a bust

THE END!

Footnotes:
(1)- This is a chord called (in full) "A add9 no5 ||R23" and I didn't think I could fit
all this in the space I had. It is played like this:

e|--------7
B|-------6-
G|-0-------
D|--------7
A|-0-------
E|X--------

(2) This is a sliding thing that just sounds cool, and I don't think the song sounds
quite complete without it. So here it is. It's not hard to tell where it is exactly in the song.

e|-----------------|-----------------|
B|-----------------|-----------------|
G|-11-11-6-6-6/7-7-|-11-11-6-6-6/7-7-|
D|-----------------|-11-11-6-6-6/7-7-|
A|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|
