Hi there!  This was a request and the hardest one ever!!
But I struggled through and I think I got it!! May need
some tweeking here or there, let me know:) Tabbed to this
version-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fy6YxPM98U


*The intro (Em7) is just a continuous strumming of the open
E string of the Em7.  When you go to the G on 'shelf' it's 
still muted but strumming the low strings EAD only and 
continue that strumming until the pre chorus. There are some 
very quick chord changes so play along with the song to get 
it down.

You can cry to me like I'm somebody else

And then you leave me alone to gather dust on the shelf of love
Em7
  Showed you all of my faults and gave you all I had
                                               G
And then you threw it away and told me to be a man,
But I was

Oh, I'm having such a hard time with the strumming pattern! I don't know what strums are used per note like in the sofa video! I'm in desperate need of help.
