Capo on 2

G  Cadd9 G Cadd9 G C D

G                  Cadd9
Tell em all I'm on vacation,
G                   Cadd9
Say I went to visit friends,
G                                 C                
That you ain't heard or seen from me in quite a while,
G                            C
When they ask you where I've been,
D                      Caad9                          D
Tell em I'm out on the west coast where it don't ever rain,
And that I'm probably doing fine,

C                           G       D
Just don't tell em I've gone crazy,
C                        G      D
That I'm still strung out over you,
C                   Em
Tell em anything you want to,
           D               Cadd9
Just don't tell em all the truth,
           G               D
Yeah don't tell em all the truth,

Tell em all I'm out in Vegas,
Blowin' every dollar I ever made,
Tell em that I must be into something bad for me cause,
I sure lost a lot of weight,
Tell em I'm out on the road with some old rock and roll band,
Living like a gypsy can,

C                                   G
The truth is that I'm asking you to lie,
            D                  C
And we both know that it ain't right,
But if you ever loved me please,
         D         C 
Have some mercy on me,
G         D         C   G D C
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
C                    Em
Tell em anything you want to,
           D               Cadd9
Just don't tell em all the truth,
           G               D
Yeah don't tell em all the truth,

Same as intro

I still need you,
Yeah that's the truth,
I still love you,
Baby that's the truth.

Overall, not a bad job. Not sure I agree with the Cadd9, as I don't hear a D being played. Also, in the chorus, both of you missed a chord transition in the last line. This isn't surprising, since it may not be easy to figure out. In this line:

Yeah [A/C#] don't tell em all [Bm] the truth, [E]

That's written as played without a capo. If you want to try that with a capo at the second fret, here's how to play it (treat the capo as position 0):

A/C# x2000x
Bm x02210 played as an Am pattern
E xx0232 played as a D pattern
