For the intro, check out the tab already posted by Martin Mc Taggart- it's
a pretty accurate one. I have to say, in my defence for posting these chords,
my guitar has the two top strings missing as the guitar bridge broke in two
last week(!) So, that's my excuse for any of these chords being inaccurate. 
I think this is pretty spot-on though, and remember if you agree- then
give me a rating!




Tuning: Standard


Intro:  G - E - C 




VERSE 1

G
Don't wanna hear the noises on TV,
E
Don't want the salesmen coming after me,
C                                         G
Don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
(G)
Don't want it faster, I dont want it free,
E
Don't wanna show you what they done to me,
C                                        G
Don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
(G)
Don't wanna choose black or blue,
E
Don't wanna see what they done to you,
C                                       G         E
Don't wanna live in my father's house no more




CHORUS

(E)                 G
'Cause the tide is high,
E                 G
and its rising still,
E                    
and I don't wanna see it at my windowsill.




VERSE 2

G
Don't wanna give 'em my name and address,
E
Don't wanna see what happens next,
C                                         G
Don't wanna live in my father's house no more.

Don't wanna live with my father's debt,
E                       
You can't forgive what you can't forget,
C                                        G
Don't wanna live in my father's house no more.

Don't wanna fight in a holy war,
E
Don't want the salesmen knocking at my door,
C                                         G   E
I don't wanna live in America no more.




CHORUS
(E)                   G
'Cause the tide is high,
E                   G
and it's rising still,
E                             G
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill.




VERSE 3

G
MTV, what have you done to me?
G
Save my soul, set me free!
G                                  
Set me free! What have you done to me?
G
I can't breathe! I can't see!
G
World War III,
G
when are you coming for me?
G
Been kicking up sparks,
G
we set the flames free.
G
The windows are locked now,
G
so what'll it be?
G                                E
A house on fire, a rising sea?





CHORUS 2
	
(E)                  G
Why is the night so still?
E                    G
Why did I take the pill?
E                                         G
Because I don't wanna see it at my windowsill!




OUTRO

E                             G
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!
Don't wanna see it at my windowsill!

It's Em, not E. E doesn't sound right at all. Also, your chorus is a little off too, there's a C in there.

Also, on every "more" of "don't want to live in my father's house no more" it lands on Em then walks up to G via F# for the next line, until the last line of the verse.

The C in the chorus is on the "don't" of "I don't want to see it at my windowsill".
