Death Cab for Cutie - Diamond and a Tether
This sounds right to me, listen to the song to get the right rhythm.  I left out 
the two extended portions of the song for simplicity's sake.

Verse:
G          C      G
Pity, take pity on me.
        C       Am               C        G
'Cause I'm not half the man that I should be.
C      G      C    G
Always turning to run,
C        Am              C        G         C G
from the people I should not be afraid of.

C    G        C        G
And darling, you should know
     C      Am          C         G
that I have fantasies about being alone.
          C         G
It's like love is a lesson,
     C      G
that I can't learn.
  C        Am               C             G
I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn.


Chorus:
                 Em           C          G
I know you can't hold out forever
             Em               C         G   D
waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em            C
from a boy who won't swim
             B7          Em
but who will dip his toe in
         A7      C         G       C G
just to keep you here with him.

Verse:
     C        G     C   G
I've got this habit I abhor.
     C     Am             C             G
When we go out I'm always watching the door.
   C          G           C     G
As if there's someone I'm gonna see
    C        Am                 C         G
who could outdo the things that you do to me.

Chorus:
                     Em          C        G
And I know you can't hold out forever
             Em            C           G  D
waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em            C
from a boy who won't fly
             B7          Em
but who will take to the skies 
      A7              C               G     C G C
if he thinks you are about to say goodbye.

Verse:
G          C       G
Pity, take pity on me.
       C       Am                C        G
'cause I'm not half the man that I should be.
    C        G
And I don't blame you,
       C      G
you've had enough,
   C         Am          C                  G
of all these empty promises and countless bluffs.

Chorus:
                        Em          C         G
'cause I know you can't hold out forever
             Em              C         G   D
waiting on a diamond and a tether
       Em             C            B7      Em
from a boy who won't jump when he falls in love.
         A7             C            Em
He just stands with his toes on the edge
        A7             C            G
and he waits for it do disappear again.

My tab looks oddly more correct then the tab your originally posted.
Funny, its like they are the same song or something.
Secondly, I like that you edited yours to include all my corrections after.

Not sure what you're talking about. I uploaded this 2 days before you and haven't edited it since, so I don't know what you mean by "originally posted"
