Hi! This is my first tab but noticed nobody else had done anything for this song so 
thought I'd get the ball rolling. It may not be 100% correct but it's how i choose to play it.

Song: English Town
Artist: Matchbox Twenty
Album: North
Email: dom_tuck@hotmail.co.uk

The Song rely's on three chords of Am, C and F only really changing on the solo should 
you choose to play it and the interlude.

Am    C    F   C
Come inside
Am    C      F     C
The air I breathe
Am        C                 F         C
While the band still plays
Am        C                 F        C
It's the end of the coldest week
Am        C                  F   C
Come down into the sea
Am              C                    F         C
Cause everybody wants to get away sometimes
Am        C             F      C
And everybody needs mistakes


Am
When the sun breaks
C                F
Over the edge of an English town
C
It pulls me away
Am
From a bad dream
C
I don't know why
F
But I know I'm not
C            Am
Ever going back


Verse:
Am         C           F           C
In the dark we can lose our sleep
Am         C          F     C
We can both be kind
Am          C                            F       C
Cause I don't need the pulling apart of sheets
Am          C         F        C
Just to know who you are

Am                      C
When everybody wants to get away from something
F               C
Everybody lose their way



Am
When the sun breaks
C                F
Over the edge of an English town
C
It pulls me away
Am
From a bad dream
C
I don't know why
F
But I know I'm not
C            Am
Ever going back

Interlude
F
It's a non stop voice
F
That can lead you on
F
But cannot change it
 


Am
When the sun breaks
C                F
Over the edge of an English town
C
It pulls me away
Am
From a bad dream
C
I don't know why
F
But I know I'm not
C            Am
Ever going back


Am   C     F
la-la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la-la
oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Overall good, but not great. You have the right progression, It's just lined up incorrectly in parts, especially the first verse. The first couple lines should be:
Am C F C
Come inside The air I breathe

and the last couple lines:
Am C
and everybody wants to get away sometimes
F C
and everybody needs mistakes

There are instances like this throughout, those are the most glaring ones though. Basically just follow the Am C F C progression throughout the song and you can figure it all out.

My chord placements got ****ed up for some reason. Basically in those spots the progression was going twice as fast as it should have been
