Here is "The Stakes Are High" by Ezra Furman and the Harpoons.

This is the bare bones version of it.  Ezra throws in some stuff that I can't
figure out how to do.  But this will get you through the song.  The one flair 
that I was able to pick up on is, he occasionally uses an alternate fingering 
for a Bm.  It's essentially just the Am formation in the Bm position, but it 
sounds good.  So throw that in for effect.  Have fun.



Alternate fingering for Bm is used occasionally it is

B  3
G  4

G                          Bm
I dove into your heart like a pool
                                C/G                       G            D
But there was no water in it and I felt like a fool
       Am                C/G                   G
When I hit the concrete bottom and I broke in two
   C/G         D
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh

 G                              Bm
Walked to the hotel through the door
        C/G                                G              D
But the man at the desk said you weren't staying there no more
       Am                C/G                       G
And I felt so stupid so sorry that I called you a whore
 C/G            D
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh


  C/G          G             Am     G
You were just doin' what you had to do
  C/G          G             Am      G
And I feel so dumb for bein' mad at you ooh
 C/G          G                Am      G
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
 C/G          G                Am      G
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
    Am                     C/G         G
My heart is full I've got no room, no room

 G                 Bm
I grew up with my family
C/G                         G            D
But I did not want to leave and I cried like a baby 
Am                               C/G                       G
I asked, "Could I ever come back home?" and my Dad said "Maybe..."
    C/G        D
ooh oh oh oh oh oh

 G                         Bm
So I found a new place to live
            C/G                            G          D
But I had trouble figuring out what's not real and what is
    Am                C/G                    G
The big city was so crazy I could hardly even breathe
 C/G         D
Ooh oh oh oh oh oh

    C/G       G        Am     G
And now I'm living in a fantasy
    C/G            G         Am    G
And I will always live there probably ooh
 C/G           G                 Am       G
You could move in, you could move in with me
 C/G           G                 Am       G
You could move in, you could move in with me
      Am                   C/G            G
The stakes are high, the trees are green okay!

 C/G            G              Am     G
We're all just doin' what we have to do
 C/G              G                      Am G
Nothin' will ever be like it was back in 1992 no-o
 C/G              G                Am      G
And I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
 C/G          G                Am      G
I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
    Am                    C/G                          G
My heart's real full but I'll make room, I'll make room
