INTRO
A Gsus2 D A Gsus2 D

VERSE
  A             Gsus2              D 
I don't want to talk about it to you

        A                        Gsus2     D                               
I'm not an open book that you can rifle through

    A                           Bm7        Gsus2 Em7              
The cold hard truth that you'll see right to

           D          A           Gsus2                          
I'm just a basket case without you


           A              Gsus2    D
He's not a magic man or a perfect fit

          A                     Gsus2    D     
But had a steady hand and I got used to it

      A                    Bm7         Gsus2 Em7   
And a glass cage heart and invited me in

                   D          A           Gsus2
And now I'm just a basket case without him

CHORUS
D                    Gsus2                    
You're begging for the truth

Gm                    D (G/D A/D)                   
So I'm saying it to you

                      Gsus2                  
I've been saving your place

         Gm                               
And what good does it do
 
               D           A Gsus2
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           A Gsus2              
Now I'm just a basket case

VERSE
  A                        Gsus2        D  
I don't say much and it'll stay that way

         A                                 Gsus2        D
You got a steel train touch and I'm just a track you lay

        A               Bm7        Gsus2 Em7     
So I'll stay right here underneath you

           D             A                 Gsus2
I'm just a basket case and that's what we do

CHORUS
D                     Gsus2                   
You're begging for the truth

Gm                    D (G/D A/D)               
So I'm saying it to you

D                        Gsus2                
I've been saving your place

         Gm                               
And what good does it do

               D          A Gsus2               
Now I'm just a basket case

BRIDGE
               D                         
Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams

             A                          
Oh send your armies in of robbers and thieves

             Bm        Gsus2   D/F#            Gsus2 A Bm7 A7/C#
To steal the state I'm in I don't want it anymore

CHORUS
D                     Gsus2                   
You're begging for the truth

Gm                    D (G/D A/D)                 
So I'm saying it to you

D                     Gsus2                  
I've been saving your place

         Gm                               
And what good does it do

               D           A Gsus2              
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           A Gsus2         
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           A Gsus2        
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           A Gsus2        
Now I'm just a basket case



NOTE:
These chords are simplifications of the actual voicings.
Here is a description of what the actual guitar voicings are:

1) The first strum of the A major chord consists of the notes A and E, but the 
subsequent strums are voiced like this: A-D-A-C#-D (more like a DMaj7/A without an F#).
2) The Gsus2 chord includes A B; the voicing is approximately: G-D-A-B-D.
3) The Em7 chord includes an A; the voicing is approx. E-B-G-A-D.
4) The Gm chord includes an A; the voicing is approx. G-D-A-Bb-D.
