I just cleaned up the first Tab a Little.

Tuning: Full step down (D)

Cadd9                     G
I guess I'll never grow a sideburn,

       D                             Em
its a shame with all I've got to go between

   Cadd9           G
I hope somebody's cause takes soon

             D                               Em
its getting hard to find a place a root can sink

Cadd9              G
Mama said a lot of things and be thankful was 

    D                            Em
the one she never minded saying twice

Cadd9               G
Thanks to her I can think clear enough,

       D                             Em
to be thankful that she died before tonight

Chorus: G Am C G C D C

G                     Am
Baby every bone in my body’s gone to jumping

             C                     G
like they're gonna come through my skin

If they could get along without the rest of me, 

                              D     C
it wouldn’t matter if they did

      G                    Am
Cause skeletons ain’t got nowhere to stick they're money

C                          G
nobody makes britches that size

and besides you're a ghost to most before they notice,

         D                    C
that you ever had a hair or a hide

Cadd9                    G
Saving everybody takes a man on a mission

       D                                 Em
with a swagger that can set the world at ease

Cadd9                        G
Some believe it's God's own hand on the trigger

and the other dumping water in the streets

Cadd9                            G
Talking tough is easy when it's other people's evil

            D                            Em
and you're judging what they do or don't believe

Cadd9                                G
It seems to me you'd have to have a hole your own                    

           D                          Em
to point a finger at somebody else's sheet

Chorus:G Am C G C D C 

Am               Bm
I don't know how good it does a man,

to keep on telling him how good it is he's free

F                C
free to wash his ghost down the drain,

and free for them to tell him there's no such a thing

Chorus: G Am C G C D C

Possibly stupid question: Considering that this song is tuned down a whole step, are the chord names just what they would be in standard tuning, for the sake of simplification? Example: Is the Cadd9, actually a Dadd9?

Yes,I tabbed it so you could tune to D and play along with the song and use the chords posted. Simply put you can play it in standard tuning if you want,but if you want to play along with the song you have to tune down a Full step. Hope that helps.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
