*NOTE: I tabbed this song just by listening to it and watching him play it live. Jake 
plays around with picking a lot of his chords in this song.

Listen to the song to get the right strumming pattern and timing.
Enjoy.

And I could paint you red
Like the passion you feel
It might not be colorful
But at least it'd be real

And I could paint you green
Like the envy you know
You're all alone and I
With nowhere to go

And I could paint you grey
To show how you're empty
To show how you don't care
So the world can all see

And I could paint you taupe
Cause they say that it's soothing
But you're like a drug to me
That could use some abusing

And I could paint you gold
To show you're a mourner
Would that make you honest
Would it make you sincere

Ohh scarlet and clover, all the things we talked about
Violet and green and the world in between
The grey skies, your blue eyes, broken, I'm drowning you know

good tab but when Jake hits the E chord he hammers onto the D string on the 2nd fret. He also does something with the 2nd chord played, but im not too sure what.

And on this part Jake plays

And I could paint you grey
To show how you're empty
To show how you don't care
so the world can all see
