Song:    Better Together
Album:   In Between Dreams

The other tab by K. Diddy is almost perfect but there is one chord missing.
Thanks to K. Diddy though for doing all the hard work.
I didn't know some of the names of the chords so I made them up. 

Standard Tuning. No capo.
Here's the chords required for the song:
 
   F    F-   Dm   C    A#   Gm   C*   Cb

e -8----8----5----3----6----3----8----7-
B -10---10---6----5----6----3----8----7-
G -10---10---7----5----7----3----9----8-
D -10---10---7----5----8----5----10---9-
A -8----7----5----3----8----5----10---9-
E -x----x----x----x----6----3----8----7-

In the chorus there is a part signified as: Cb->A#
The -> signifies a slide. Slide from Cb to A#.

Lyrics & Chords:

F               F-                           Dm                   C
There's no combination of words that I could put on the back of a postcard
A#           F                Gm            C* 
No song that I could sing but I can try for your heart 
F   F-                  Dm               C            
Our dreams and they are made out of real things like a
A#         F               Gm          C* 
Shoebox of photographs and sepia-toned lovin'

F           F-                  Dm                       C         
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart like
A#         F                    Gm                  C* 
Why are we here and where do we go and how come its so hard? 
F              F-                 Gm            C
Its not always easy and sometimes life can be decieving
A#                F                 Gm                C*      
I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together
 
Cb->A#           C*                        Cb->A#
Mmmmm, its always better when we're together
                       C*                       Cb->A#
Yeah well look at them stars when we're together 
                 C*                        Cb->A#
Well it's always better when we're together
                C*                        
Yeah its always better when we're together


F, F-, Dm, C, A#, F, Gm, C* (CONTINUE LAST CHORD INTO CHORUS)


C* (CONTINUED FROM THE INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE) 
And all of these 
F                  F-                     Dm       C
Moments just might find their way into my dreams tonight
      A#                   F             Gm            C*
But I know that they'll be gone when the morning light sings

Or brings
F         F-     Dm                  C
New things for tomorrow night you'll see
     A#              F             Gm               C*
That they'll be gone too, too many things I have to do

                     
But if all of these 
F                       F-          Dm         C
Dreams might find their way into my day to day scene 
       A#          F              Gm            C*
I'd be under the impression I was somewhere inbetween 
          F               F-              Dm               C
With only two just me and you not so many things we got to do
   A#               F              Gm              C*
Or places we got to be we'll sit beneath the mango tree now


Cb->A#            C*                        Cb->A#
Mmmmm, its always better when we're together
          C*                 Cb->A#
Somewhere in between together 
                 C*                        Cb->A#
Well it's always better when we're together
                C*                        
Yeah its always better when we're together


F, F-, Dm, C, A#, F, Gm, C*
Mmmm mmm mmmm (HUM ALONG)


Gm           C                     Gm                C                 Gm
I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep, hey now and
           C                   Gm                      C              Gm
And when I wake up you look so pretty sleeping next to me but there is 
           C                 Gm               C                   Gm
Not enough time, there is no, no song I could sing and there is no 
               C                            Gm                 C
Combination of words I could say but I will still tell you one thing

We're better together

This tab is the best one ive seen soo far, its missing the base notes he pulls before strumming each note, and its missing after the #A he moves his bar finger over a fret, instead of going to the F chord before he hits the Gm. But all in all it is a well done tab. This song is confusing because jack plays it was a capo sometimes and without one in others, this is the good one without a capo that he does in AOL sessions

The F after the A# is wrong
