VERSE 1 & 2 (Repeat Intro 2 twice):
(Singing starts from beginning of Intro 2)

He used to be a singer in a rock and roll band
He would write the songs and Id tremble at his hand, but oh, la laa
He lost poetic ethic and his songs were pathetic, and hes a failure now.

He used to be the life and soul of everyone around
Youd never catch him looking up and never see him down but oh, la laa
He couldnt raise a smile oh, not for a while and, hes a failure now.

-----------------------|----------------------|

Dont cry child, youve got so much more to live for,
Dont cry child, youve got something I would die for,
And if it comes to the rain, just be glad youll smile again,
Cause so many dont
And so many go unnamed.


VERSE 3 & 4 (Repeat Intro 2 twice):
(Singing starts from beginning of Intro 2)

People push right past me shouting various claims
A preacher pushes me a side and asked to wash my sins i said no, la laa
If he made me in his image, then hes a failure too.

And I used to need a couple of people to keep my head down
Now I need a whole lot more to keep me on the ground but oh, la laa
I gave up something and I gave it up for nothing and I am failure now.


(BRIDGE)


(CHORUS)


(INTRO 2)

Is this from a demo/version not from the album Alas I Cannot Swim? Because that "intro 1" part isn't in my version at all. Also i think the... erm.. "upper notes" change at some points to different to what ye have.
Though yeah, you basically have it there. Well enough for me to play along anyway, hot shit!

I think the change in the higher notes you're hearing may just be hammer on from open to 3 on the B string at certain points and I think only in the intro, too. That's how it sounds to me and, when I get around to learning this that's what I'll do, although it's quite hard to co-ordinate (or at least for me it is, haha). Other than that, perfect tab, great job. I love this song.
