Using a Youtube tutorial of how to play the song on piano, I made a poorly transcribed
version to put on here.
This is intended as more of an acoustic thing, maybe using two guitars, easy
enough to figure out what to do.
Feel free to make any comments or corrections. (First ever tab!) Unless it's about
the lyrics, they're from a website.]

Am              F     G                 C
Rain spat in my face, thanks a lot mate
   Am        F              G    C
And I lost a tenner on the way
Am                 F              G
Thinking about it, did I spend it last night
     C            Am             F         G      C
When I was drunk and I wanted to get more drunk

Am                F
Missed the train, thanks a lot mate
G                   C         Am           F       
   C
I didn't want to be late today, cause I'm always late
     Am            F           G
And I really hate always being late
    C                  Am             G       C
And now the other train is delayed... great.


Am                  F         G
Carrying bags and a navy taxi man said
           C
"Take your time love
  Am       F             G      C
'Cause you don't have to rush
            Am                F              G            C
'Cause it's your life and it's no one else's, sweetheart
Am                F            G        C
Don't let someone put you in a box."

     Am                      F                  G
So I take all that other stuff that I said before
        C             Am
And I'm gonna make it work
           F      G                C                 
    F   G   C
'Cause I'm losing my mind and it's driving me up the wall
     Am                F
So I tried to help you carry your shopping
     G                     C
But I wasn't concentrating, I was talking
    Am                        F                   G             C
And I got it caught on the side of this thing and it split
        Am              F                  G                C
And I'd try to help you walk along but I'd probably end up pushing you over
        Am            F              G           C
But don't worry, I'll never let you fall

        Am                            F
And I'm stubborn and I shout and I'll cut you out
    G            C         Am                 F      
     G      C
And I'll make you feel like I never wanted to make you feel

        Am                            F
And I'm stubborn and I shout and I'll cut you out
    G            C         Am                 F      
     G      C
And I'll make you feel like I never wanted to make you feel


Am                  F         G
Carrying bags and a navy taxi man said
           C
"Take your time love
  Am       F             G      C
'Cause you don't have to rush
            Am                F              G            C
'Cause it's your life and it's no one else's, sweetheart
Am                F            G        C
Don't let someone put you in a box."

     Am                        F                 G
So I take all that other stuff that I said before
        C               Am
And I'm gonna make it work
           F         G              C                 
     F     G     C
Because I'm losing my mind and it's driving me up the wall

(This part is played 9 times)
    Am         F
And this time, it will be different,
G          C
This time, it will be different.

[End on Am]

[As the chords are being played, the second guitar (maybe even a bass?) could play
a part for each individual chord.]

Am:
A|------------7-----|
E|-----5------------|

F:
A|------------3-----|
E|-----1------------|

G:
A|------------5-----|
E|-----3------------|

C:
A|------------10----|
E|-----8------------|


[Throughout the song, there is a C that I am unsure as to whether should be played as a 
or a G, I tabbed it as a C because I personally prefer it but I could be wrong.
Well anyway, my first tab, hope you enjoy and please rate and/or comment!]

I think the G in the second line has to be a C, it will be like this then: Am F G C, Am F C.. this has to be throughout the whole song
