[VERSE lyrics]

I buried my heart in a hole in the ground   (example: A# C G)
With the lights and the roses and the cowards down-town
They threw me a party there was no one around
They tried to call my girl but she could not be found

I buried my guilt in a pit in the sound
With the rust and the vultures and the trash down-town
So don't step to me, kid you'll never be found
'Cos while you were sleeping I took over your town (G is maintained until PRE-CHORUS - 1:16)

I fell for a girl with a port-wine stain

[FINAL CHORUS lyrics]

When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya
I give up my money give up my name take it away
I give it away I give it away I give it
I'm a sycophantic animal, I'm a sycophant oh no, I'm a sycophantic oh I know,
Break through the chain, I'm breaking the chain I'm breaking
Give it away, give it away, I give it
When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya
Give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I give it away I give it away I give it
See you again I see you again I see ya
Give it away, I give it away, I give it
[unintelligible]
When I see a man I see a lion
When I see a man I see a lion
You're the apple of my eye of my eye of my eye
You're the apple of my eye of my I want 'ya

Hey nice try man! Looks about right to me.
Mine version is still in review so would appreciate if you checked it out! Been tabbing it for several hours the day it came out! Unfortunately we can't rate each other's tabs just because we have tabbed the same songs :DD
