One of my favorite Ingrid Michaelson songs and I noticed that nobody had tabbed it so I thought

I would. It's my first tab so please rate. The song isn't that difficult. You just have 
get the

rhythm right. I based it off of a live version I found on Youtube but it's the same as 
album.

In the live version there's  a capo on the 1st fret, so it's up to you if you want to 
it.  I tried to

 get the chords lined up with the words but I couldn't unfortunately.

These are the tabs for a few of the chords:

Nelly and Faye.

On our island in the blue bay.

              A            E                      A
How I love to love him from afar.

When he walks right past me then I finally see on this bar stool I can't stay.

I agree with above person.
You should prolly fix it.
But most of the chords are correct.
