Love this song.  Also one of his originals that he's been playing on the Inspired Attempt tour that should be
on his upcoming album!  Once there's a recorded version, the chords may sound a little different, but this 
sounds great with the version he's been playing. 

Version I used:

[Intro]
F     A


[Verse]
           Dm               Bb
I lost my head going for a crown
           F                            A
And it's quite a funny story but I'll never write it down
             Dm                  Bb
They switched my blood out with ink
       F                            A
Then wrote a book inside me, thus forcing me to read
         Dm           Bb
Line by line, rib by rib
    F                       A
Improper punctuation is puncturing my skin
             Dm               A
And yeah it hurts, but not too much
          F                     A
Cuz I've got an ugly cover but who are you to judge?


[Chorus]
      Bb             C
This open book, an open book
    Bb     A    Dm
Another wasted tree
    Bb             C
An open book, an open book
       F      A    Dm
With dust to cover me
             Bb             C                     F       A
I'm just an open book that no one wants to read


[Verse]
                 Dm                Bb
I've got these hands that I don't want
           F                              A
And they shake with every letter as I scribble down my thoughts
             Dm               Bb
With sloppy words and sloppy form
         F                             A
They end up on crumpled paper I throw idly on the floor
           Dm              Bb
But every page is yours to write
       F                        A
We're all just pointless stories connected at the spine
           Dm                    Bb
And by ourselves we don't make sense
              F                         A
But when you put us all together, you start to comprehend


[Chorus]
      Bb             C
This open book, an open book
     Bb    A    Dm
Another wasted tree
    Bb             C
An open book, an open book
       F       A   Dm
With dust to cover me
             Bb            A
I'm just an open book that no one wants to read


[Bridge]
Bb                          C
This life, it tears us to shreds
F            Em          Dm
Thrown on a pile to be burned with all the rest
Bb                           C
Just note the raindrop on a page
F            Em       Dm
We use our music to distort the words we say
   Bb                            C
Cuz I think you'll like me this way


[Chorus]
    Bb             C 
An open book, an open book
    Bb    A     Dm 
Another wasted tree
    Bb             C 
An open book, an open book
      F        A   Dm 
With dirt to cover me
           Bb               C
I'm just another book that you don't want

     Bb            C
An open book, an open book
   Bb      A    Dm
Another wasted tree
    Bb             C
An open book, an open book
      F       A    Dm
With dust to cover me
             Bb            N.C.     
I'm just an open book that no one wants to read
