I kinda have 2 versions that have been cobbled together from other peoples tabs 
and videos so I really cannot take credit at all for any of these whatsoever, 
they're just everything I've seen put into some versions. 

The first one is pretty fool proof :) Fiddle around with a capo if you want to, it works well on 3

Basically play an Am and a C but just plucking those strings and then at the 
chorus play Am, C and G:
          C                  Am
With that skipping rope, the trampoline
    G
The crafty smoke that made us choke

But we didn't give up hope
              C               Am
It's just the simple ways, of getting paid
    G
The carelessnes of running away
                Mute the G here
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed etc..

For the "I don't own my clothes but I own my mind etc.." bit, play the tabby bit 
above but all the strings shown together like: 
C [XXX01X]
Am[XXX21X]
And only pluck them once:)

        C      C             Am     Am
I don't own my clothes but i own my mind
         C               C
And it's not what you've lost
         Am       Am
But it's what you find. etc...




The second version, I think, is a bit better sounding :)

At the chorus play E and a retarded Am [X06650] so it goes like this:

          E                  
With that skipping rope, the trampoline
    Am
The crafty smoke that made us choke

But we didn't give up hope
              E              
It's just the simple ways, of getting paid
    Am
The carelessnes of running away
                Mute the Am here
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed etc..

Similarly to the first version play the strings that are pressed down in the chords:
 E  [X221XX]
 Am [XX665X]
        E      E           Am       Am
I don't own my clothes but i own my mind
         E               E 
And it's not what you've lost
         Am       Am
But it's what you find. Etc.



I know this all may be a bit confusing, so I really do apologise!!
Hopefully it is helpful though:) 
I have a few other sh!ttier versions so facebook message me for those if you want 
them or indeed need help in understanding this :/
