Ben Folds - Not the Same from “Rockin’ the Suburbs”

C major, 4/4

Do is supposed to be D diminished, I couldn't make the stupid circle go up the top where 
belongs, d'oh!

Verse 1:
    C
You took a trip
    G/C
And climbed a tree
Do/C                   C
    At Robert Sledge's party
    C                     G/C
And there you stayed 'til morning came
Do/C                  	  C
    And you were not the same after that

You gave your life
To Jesus Christ
And after all your friends went home
You came down
You looked around
And you were not the same after that

Pre-Chorus:
Am7     Fmaj7
Aaah	Aaah
C                   G
   You were not the same after that
Am7	Fmaj7
Aaah	Aaah
C		     G
   You were not the same after that

Chorus:
             Fmaj7
You see them drop like flies
         G
From the bright sunny skies
          Fmaj7
They come knocking at your door
          G
With this look in their eyes
        Fmaj7
You got one good trick
           G
And you're hangin’ on, you're hangin’ on
C2
	To it...

Verse 2: (same chords as before)

You took the word
And made it heard
And eased the people's pain and for that
You were idolized, immortalized
You were not the same after that

Walking tall
You'd bought it all
You were not the same after that
'Till someone died
On the water slide
And you were not the same after that

Chorus: (yep, same chords as chorus before)

You see them drop like flies
From the bright sunny skies
They come knocking at your door
With this look in their eyes
You got one good trick
And you're hangin’ on
You're hangin’ on
To it...

Pre-Chorus:

Am7	Fmaj7	C		     G
Ooh ooh ooh  	  (You were not the same)
Am7	Fmaj7	C	G
Ooh ooh ooh

Chorus:

You see them drop like flies
From the bright sunny skies
They come knocking at your door
With this look in their eyes
You got one good trick
And you're hangin’ on
You're hangin’ on

	      Fmaj7
(You see them drop like flies)
G			Fmaj7
     You're hangin’ on
G			Fmaj7
     You're hangin’ on
G
     You're hangin’ on

Outro:

C	G/C	Do/C      C
C	G/C	Do/C      C


If it's a bit tricky it's probably worth remembering that Ben Folds is a pianist and not 
guitarist, some of this song is a bit idiosyncratically written for piano. But it's a 
song so can't complain!!

As mentioned in the comment to version 1 of this song, the F in the verse should be Fm. The rest is great though! =)
