(Brett now roughly plays the intro picking over the chords sometimes improvising. Sounds 
if you do the whole song in the picking from the beginning, but chords sound good aswell)


[Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day


[Verse 2]

                 Bb                 F
Preachers on the podium speakin' of saints
                C                    Dm
Prophets on the sidewalk beggin' for change
    C      Bb                     F
Old ladies laughin' from the fire escape
           C
Cursin' my name

(chords remain the same for all verses)


[Verse 3]

I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You can spend your whole life workin' for something
Just to have it taken away


[Verse 4]

People walk around pushin' back their debts
Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath


[Verse 5]

People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge
Carryin' their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence


[Repeat Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day


[Chorus]

                          Dm      Bb          C
But love will come set me free
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I do          believe
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I know it     will
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     yes


[Verse 6]

Prison walls still standin' tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all


[Verse 7]

Workin' your fingers bare to the bones
Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
Suffocatin' slow


[Verse 8]

The wind blows wild and I may move
But politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit
To argue the truth


[Verse 9]

The air on my skin and world under my toes
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow


[Chorus]

                          Dm      Bb          C
But love will come set me free
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I do          believe
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I know it     will
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     yes


[Repeat Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day

you had it right. but, at most, i guess it could have been written as

------------------------
-----------1------------
---------(0)--0---------
-------2---------2------
----3-------------------
------------------------
but thats not necessary

and, you could have put 4 chords on each line, but then it wouldnt be a tab (well maybe it would, but on this site, CHORDS instead of a TAB), and people who are like me (too lazy to figure it out and want to play it right the first time) wouldnt be able to do it the first time

so, if i could give them, 10 stars
