I Figured You Out (Elliott Smith)
as performed by Mary Lou Lord
from Martian Saints

Note:  The tab for the intro is just to give you a rough idea of where the important
picked parts are; mostly, the chords are being played with just slight embellishments.
 Also note that the picking of the G-G6 progression in the intro is the same for each
verse as well.

Verse 1:
G             G6
I've seen you watching
    D                         Am  /A /G
Her everytime she crosses the floor
D/F#                     Em      C
So won't you just go and talk to
G           D       C
The one you really adore
G                  G6
I'm getting pretty used to being
    D                     Am  /A /G
The one that you always ignore
D/F#          Em        C
When somebody wants you
G    D         C
I've seen it before

Between verses thing:
   G        G6 G7 G

You're every kind of color
            D                 Am    /A /G
There ain't nothing you won't claim
D/F#              Em     C
Your ambition and promise
G          D          C
And your addiction to fame
G                    G6
And everyone's got a dollar
D                Am  /A /G
Sign after their name
D/F#          Em       C
When somebody wants you
G            D        C
You treat em just the same

Am         G
So go on a pick-up
          D/F#                 Em
You don't care what poison you choose
         Em7/D      C
And what person you choose
It should've been me, yeah
C            D
Shouldn't it be?

Verse 3:
G        G6
Crushing quiet
D                    Am  /A /G
Blows in through the window
D/F#           Em       C
To someone who wants you
G              D
That you never know
G              G6
But I pick up around you
D                    Am   /A /G
And clear everything out
D/F#              Em       C
Leave you where I found you
G D           C    /A /G
I figured you out
D/F#              Em       C
Leave you where I found you
G D           C
I figured you out

Repeat verse chord progression to the end

Very good tab. Real fun song to play, easy to learn. I like to put a capo around 4th or 5th however. Also, I think the C that comes after the Em sounds good as a C/G - which is just a regular C but your pinky on the 3rd fret of the high E string. All in all, very good job. Love this song, I always felt it should have been one of the worlds most popular songs, it never got the fame it deserved.
