Hello all! Here's a rather simple tab for a rather beautiful song.
(I often play in CGCGCC tuning, so I use powerchords instead, which sound good too.)
If you listen to the song, the placing of the chords should come easily.

NOTE: This is how I play it in standard tuning. 
It may not be totally correct but it sounds great, particularly with an overdrive or distortion effect on the chorus.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: DarrenJag
E-mail: jasperjmarcus@gmail.com
Scale: C major for verse, E minor for chorus


Intro: Cmaj7 - G6 - Asus2 - Em, Cmaj7/E - G6 - Asus2 - Em

(the trick is to play all five strings on the Cmaj7, and only the low three for the Cmaj/E.
If you listen to the song you'll probably notice the subtle addition of the low E to the Cmaj7 chord)


                 Cmaj7    G6                   Asus2   Em
Tell me what you want girl, you tell me what you need,
              Cmaj/E                     G6                      Asus2              Em
You know you just say the word I'll be right there, yes I'll be right there at your feet,
                    Cmaj7       G6                       Asus2  Em   
Because you know you rock girl yeah, and I love how we roll,
        Cmaj7/E             G6                             Asus2             Em
But I left you all alone, all we got is the phone and it's never gonna be enough,
            Cmaj7     G6             Asus2  Em
Living in this dug-out, a million miles away, man, 
   Cmaj7/E            G6                           Asus2              Em
I wish they'd pad these walls, like an institution, man, I'm going crazy,
                Cmaj7           G6        Asus2     Em
Because when I'm away from you girl, I lose myself,
            Cmaj7/E           G6                    Asus2 
You know my train jumps off the tracks and all my pots fall off the shelf.

CHORUS (overdrive until Cmaj7)
X Em  G6     Asus2     X Em G6     Asus2
   Oh, I'd do anything, yeah, just to be with you,
X Em G6      Asus2     X Em G6     Asus2      Cmaj7   G6 Asus2 Em
   Oh, I'd do anything, oh just to be with you girl, 
            Cmaj7/E G6 Asus2 Em
Be with you,

               Cmaj7        G6                 Asus2    Em
It's a little girl's birthday and yeah, we are apart,
             Cmaj7/E           G6                    Asus2    Em
Ain't gonna make a big deal out of it but it breaks my heart,
                  Cmaj7       G6                    Asus2     Em
You tell her "Papa loves her" yeah, and it won't be too long,
            Cmaj7/E         G6                      Asus2              Em
'til we're all together again and yes you know we're all singing yes those songs,
                 Cmaj7   G6                 Asus2      Em
I escape into my TV - yeah, I know you understand,
         Cmaj7/E           G6                             Asus2            Em 
Man they call that shit reality, I'd like to see those fools in Afghanistan,
                Cmaj7        G6               Asus2       Em
Living in this cold damn world, hell-bent on self-destruction,
        Cmaj7/E            G6                      Asus2
What I need right now is a little bit of love, a little bit of love and affection,

CHORUS (overdrive until Cmaj7)
X Em G6     Asus2        X Em G6     Asus2
   Oh, I'd do anything, yeah, just to be with you,
X Em G6     Asus2        X Em G6     Asus2       Cmaj7     G6 Asus2 Em
   Oh, I'd do anything, oh just to be with you girl, 
         Cmaj7/E G6 Asus2 Em
Be with you,
                Cmaj7   G6 Asus2 Em     Cmaj7/E G6 Asus2 Em
Just to be with you girl,   be with you,

                Cmaj7   G6                   Asus2  Em
Tell me what you want girl, you tell me what you need,
              Cmaj7/E                    G6                          Asus2             Em
You know you just say the word I'll be right there, yes I'll be right there at your feet...
