I was suprised to see there wasn't a chordal version of this great song, so thought i'd 
it down. It's a slightly simplified version of the original song, just missing out the 
unimportant chords for a less demanding sing-along.


For the D5 i recommend this shape:

x
3
2
0
0
x

You could play it as a Dm instead, however D5's ambiguousity serves the songs better.


[Intro]

Am x4 bars


[Verse]

          Am                          F
There's a place where everyone can be happy,
              C                                    G
it's the most beautiful place in the whole fuckin' world,
     Am                                 F
it's made of candy canes and planes and bright red choo choo trains,
        C
and the meanest little boys,
     G                             Am
most innocent little girls and you know,
                    F
i wish that I could go there,
       C                    G
it's a road that I have not found,
    Am                     F
and I wish you the best of luck dear,
C                           D5       E
drop a card or letter to my side of town.


[Chorus]

               F                       E
'cause there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend,
    F                      E         F       G
but baby I'm amazed at the hate that you can send,
    Am    F   G   Am
and you,
                  F     D5    E
painted my entire world,
    Am   F
but I,
G                             F                       E
don't have the turpentine to clean what you have soiled,
                      Am
and I won't forget it.


[Verse]

                                      F
There's a place where everyone can be right,
     C                                  G
even though you remain determined to be opposed,
  Am                          F
admittance requires no qualifications,
           C                           G
it's where everyone has been and where everybody goes,
   Am                     F
so please try not to be impatient,
       C                    G
for we all hate standing in line,
    Am                                         F
and when the farm is good and bought you'll be there without a thought,
    C                       D5           E
and eternity my friend is a long fuckin' time.


[Chorus]

               F                       E
'cause there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend,
    F                      E         F       G
but baby I'm amazed at the hate that you can send,
    Am    F   G   Am
and you,
                  F     D5    E
painted my entire world,
    Am   F
but I,
G                             F                       E
don't have the turpentine to clean what you have soiled,
                      Am
and I won't forget it.


[Outro]

There's a cover of this by Kind Of Like Spitting that has a picking intro and there's no tab for it on here at the moment. I've never tabbed anything out before but I think the Am picking bits go like so:
e----------------
B----------------
G----------------
D---------2-0----
A-0-0-2-0-----3-2
E----------------

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!
