I Figured You Out (Elliott Smith)
as performed by Mary Lou Lord
from Martian Saints

Note:  The tab for the intro is just to give you a rough idea of where the important
picked parts are; mostly, the chords are being played with just slight embellishments.
 Also note that the picking of the G-G6 progression in the intro is the same for each
verse as well.

Capo second fret

The second time through, it's nearly identical, but instead of D at the end, it's D and 

Verse 1:
G             G6
I've seen you watching
    D                         Am  /A /G
Her everytime she crosses the floor
D/F#                     Em      C
So won't you just go and talk to
G           D       C
The one you really adore
G                  G6
I'm getting pretty used to being
    D                     Am  /A /G
The one that you always ignore
D/F#          Em        C
When somebody wants you
G    D         C
I've seen it before

Between verses thing:
   G        G6 G7 G

Verse 2:
G                    G6
You're every kind of color
            D                 Am    /A /G
There ain't nothing you won't claim
D/F#              Em     C
Your ambition and promise
G          D          C
And your addiction to fame
G                    G6
And everyone's got a dollar
D                Am  /A /G
Sign after their name
D/F#          Em       C
When somebody wants you
G            D        C
You treat em just the same

Am         G
So go on a pick-up
          D/F#                 Em
You don't care what poison you choose
         Em7/D      C
And what person you choose
It should've been me, yeah
C            D
Shouldn't it be?

Verse 3:
G        G6
Crushing quiet
D                    Am  /A /G
Blows in through the window
D/F#           Em       C
To someone who wants you
G              D
That you never know
G              G6
But I pick up around you
D                    Am   /A /G
And clear everything out
D/F#              Em       C
Leave you where I found you
G D           C    /A /G
I figured you out
D/F#              Em       C
Leave you where I found you
G D           C
I figured you out

Repeat verse chord progression to the end

Very good tab. Real fun song to play, easy to learn. I like to put a capo around 4th or 5th however. Also, I think the C that comes after the Em sounds good as a C/G - which is just a regular C but your pinky on the 3rd fret of the high E string. All in all, very good job. Love this song, I always felt it should have been one of the worlds most popular songs, it never got the fame it deserved.

Great tab. FYI Elliot Smith Demo just released online ahead of album on sale in March. He plays the tune tuned down a whole step from open.
