About this tab version
This is based on the Winter Songs version rather than the Pixie Queen album version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Tuning: D standard (one full step down) is how Anthony plays it I believe, but E standard sounds good too.

Suggested chord fingerings:
    G   Bm  Am
e|--0---0---0--|        
B|--0---3---1--|        
G|--4---4---2--|        
D|--5---4---2--|        
A|--5---0---0--|        
E|-------------|



[Intro]
G Bm (repeat)


[Verse]
G
She never has a lot to say
Bm
Any time I try
Am                         Bm
Any time I try to keep her awake at night
G               
She always wants to hear me sing
Bm
Like telling her a story
Am                      Bm
Says it helps her relax, and unwind

[Chorus]
G       Bm      Am
No one ever gets my better half
G       Bm                 Am
I know that she will always be
G       Bm          Am
No one ever gets my better half
G
But me

G Bm  (repeat)
Ooh etc

[Verse]
G                       
Every time that I'm away
Bm              
She has to stay home
Am                    Bm
Chasing after babies, all alone
G
All I ever have to do
Bm              
Any time I'm anxious
Am
Imagine that I'm with her
Bm
And I'm no longer blue

[Chorus]
G       Bm      Am
No one ever gets my better half
G       Bm                 Am
I know that she will always be
G       Bm          Am
No one ever gets my better half
G
But me

G Bm (repeat)
Ooh etc

[Bridge]
G                       Bm  
Know you're always in my heart
G                            Bm  
You have been there from the start

[Chorus]
G       Bm      Am
No one ever gets my better half
G       Bm                 Am
I know that she will always be
G       Bm          Am
No one ever gets my better half
G
But me

This is good. Although I would have to disagree with you and say that it sounds better with the standard fingering for G Bm and Am chords

You might be right - I'm just fairly certain that on the Winter Songs version it's very noticeable that he's playing open strings on a lot of the trailing strokes.
