Key: C
Note that the song is mostly in 9/8, so listen to the song carefully to get the pattern

* is for single strokes

Intro: C Am* Em* F C F

You should know me better than that
Am                                          Em*        C
I should leave it alone but you're not right

Chorus:

well done, but I think there is a link (C/B chord) between the C and the F and in reverse

The verse chords sound like plays Am and Em between the C and F, and a G between the F and C so it goes like:

C Am Em F G

where there's a single stroke on the C, Am and Em (so like...
C Am Em F
Dun dun dun dunn me better than that"
(You should know)

e.g.

Don't make me read your mind
C Am Em F G
You should know me better than that
C
It takes me too much time
C Am Em F G
You should know me better than that

I hope that made sense, it should do if you listen to the song

Additionally, in the pre-chorus/end-of-verse/whatever bit it sounds like there are a couple of single-stroke extra chords as well, so like:

Am Em C G
I should leave it alone but you're not right
Am Em C G C?
I should leave it alone but you're not right

Am F C F
I should live in salt for leaving you behind

There are definitely three single strokes just before the chorus, but I'm not totally sure what the last one before the chorus' Am is. Definitely not an Em, so I stuck in C as it sounds okay.

If I've made a mistake or anyone has any other notes please say so - the sooner we get this worked out the sooner we can learn it :D
