G
Well I think that there's a problem here
G                               Fill B
her voice just don't sound right
G
but I left myself on her answering machine
G                                Fill A
said "I'm back in town tonight."
C
I feel I've stepped out of the wilderness
C                           Fill D
all squint-eyed and confused
G
but even babies raised by wolves
G                                        Fill B
they know exactly when they've been used

CHORUS:

C                    D
See when it starts to fall apart,
  G                  Fill A
it really falls apart
     C                  D
like boots or hearts, oh when they start
     G                Fill A
they really fall apart

G
Fingers and toes, fingers and toes,
G                    Fill C
forty things we share
G
forty-one if you include,
G
the fact that we don't care
C
now you've blocked off most of main street
C                    Fill D
for your faith parade
G
everyone in town now, they probably all agree
G
I'm lying in the bed I made

CHORUS

SOLO

G
Now you won't even let me talk to you
G
we got some air to clear
G
we'd probably only agree on one thing anyway
G                                      Fill C
that's what the hell is happening here?
C
fingers and toes, fingers and toes
C                    Fill D
forty things we share
G
forty-one if you include
G
the fact that we don't care

this is my version of this song. enjoy

Am I missing something here? Is there more than 1 guitar in this? This tuning doesn't sound right in the verses.

if you play the c and d part using barre chords its not too bad just hold the A string two frets higher than ausual C (so all your fingers should be in the 5th fret for C chord and the 7th fret for D)
works fo rme anyway...great tab man thanks..long live the hip

Small correction that will help out a lot to kick off the tune. You can pretty much improvise a lot of this song but make sure you keep the rhythm going with the bass notes. Here's the intro as it is on the recording:

Intro:
E-|---------
B-|---------
G-|---------
D-|-9\7-5---
G-|-----0---
E-|-7\5-----
