"Helena"  (Tab by Rockcru)

C#m               E
Helena, don't walk away
            A       C#m      F#m 
Before you give me back my heart
            C#m                 E
If it were mine, it would be yours to take
          A      C#m         F#m
'm sorry I let down my guard, oh Helena

You looked so sweet
I should have seen
While I was playing for fun
              Bsus         B    
You were playing for keeps

C#m                   E
You win, I lose, is there some way
           A     C#m      F#m
You can leave me in your debt
                    C#m             E
So my girl and I can live to die another day
             A      C#m     F#m
On that day I won't forget you, Helena

A                           G#m               
You look so sweet waiting for me
         F#m                          D
While I wait for her to give me any reason to leave

     A                        Bm
Don't waste your pretty sympathy
        D             A
She's gonna be just fine
     A       Bm
And Helena, so will we
        D              A
So will everything in time, mmm

C#m                   E
Helena, don't walk away
            A    C#m       F#m
Did you hear one word I said
           C#m                   E
Oh well, I never really liked her anyway
      A    C#m         F#m
And I forgot her, I'll forget you, Helena
You're not that sweet
And neither is she
     F#m                    D        A  
Go ahead and tell her anything you want,
                        Bm          D                A
'cause, Helena, guys like me never sleep alone at night
I don't need your sympathy
  D                      A
'cause I'll always be just fine

              Bm            D
Yeah, I'll always be just fine

A          Bm          D           A

              Bm            D  
Yeah, I'll always be just fine

A          Bm          D           A
La la la, la la la, la la la

Good job, it's close enough. It would be nice if someone would post the part the guitar picks through the song. :)

I think in the recording the guitar isn't in standard tuning, but if you use this pattern, it sounds close: 4-2-5-3 (numbers referring to strings). example:


for c# minor
