  A D Bm D E

  [A] I should've been [D] listening [Dsus2]... To
  [D6] E-[D]-very word you [E] said
  [G] Oh, what I have I been [D] missing [Dsus2]
  [A] Wishing that you were [D] dead [Dsus2]

  [A] I didn't mean to be so [D] disturbing [Dsus2]
  [D6] So [D] far from [E] home
  [G] Oh, What have I been [D] learning... By
  [A] Being all [D] alone

  [A] Every little thing [Dm] Every Little thing
  [A] Every little thing just [E] tears you a-[D]-part
  [A] Every little thing [Dm] Every Little thing
  [A] Every little thing just [E] tears you a-[D]-part

  [A] When, when we were [D] younger [Dsus2]
  [D6] Sleep [D] while I'm A-[E]-wake... I was
  [G] Trying to keep the [D] door locked [Dsus2]
  [A] I realize, that's a mis-[E]-take

CHORUS (repeat):

  [D] Every little [Dflat5] thing that you do 
  [D'] Seems so much [E] better than I could do
  [G] Oh, I should've been [D] listening... To
  [D] Every word you [E] said

CHORUS (repeat 4x to fade)

the bridge is way off and the chorus doesn't sound very accurate either

Thanks for your comments. I mostly watch Tweedy play rhythm parts. I can't discount that I sometimes miss out on what Jay (now Pat & Nels) added to the mix.

I agree the bridge sounds off when using the standard chord shapes-- what I documented and what you mostly get on this site. Step the progression up to the 7th fret on lead guitar and it'll sound a lot better.

RE: the chorus, I contemplated 'Emaj7' over 'E'. Depending on the version, Summerteeth or live, you can hear both. If you have a better way, please post it.
