This is my very simplified version of Matchbox 20's "UNWELL"
It may look a bit different than some of the others because I 
transcribed it for solo acoustic guitar (many guitars were used 
in the original recording). This version's limited to 5-chords.
Feel free to use variations and extensions of these chords.

Matchbox 20 - Unwell
Capo-2nd fret

[Intro]  G - Cadd9 - Em7 - D (2X)

[Cadd9]All [D]Day,  [G]starin' at the [Em7]ceilin'
makin' [Cadd9] friends with [D]shadows on my [Em7]wall.
[Cadd9]All [D]night,  [G]hearin' voices [Em7]tellin'
me that [Cadd9]I should get some sleep because 
[D] tomorrow might be good for somethin'

[Bm7]Hold [Cadd9]on,  [G]feelin' like I'm [D]headed for a
[Bm7]break [Cadd9]down,  and [G]I don't know [D]why.

But [G]I'm not crazy I'm just a little un[Cadd9]well, 
I know right now you can't tell 
[Em7]but stay a while and maybe then you'll [D]see 
a different side of me
[G]I'm not crazy I'm just a little im[Cadd9]paired
I know right now you don't care
[Em7]but soon enough you're gonna think of [D]me
and how I use to be

[Cadd9]  [D]Me I'm [G]talkin' to [Em7]myself in public
[Cadd9]dodgin' [D]glances on the [Em7]train
[Cadd9]And I [D]know  [G]I know they've all been 
[Em7]talkin' 'bout me 
[Cadd9]I can hear them whisper
and it [D]makes me think there must be somethin' wrong  

[Bm7]With [Cadd9]me, [G]out of all the [D]hours thinkin' 
[Bm7]some[Cadd9]how  [G]I've lost my [D]mind


[Cadd9]   [Em7]I've been talkin' in my [Cadd9]sleep
[Em7] pretty soon they'll come to [Cadd9]get me
[Em7] yeah they're takin' me [D]away


[G]  [Cadd9]hey how I used to [Em7]be yeah  
[D]  How I use to [G]be yeah
[Cadd9]Well I'm just a little [Em7]unwell
[D]  How I used to [G]be (I'm just a little [Cadd9]unwell)
How I used to [Em7]be   [D]I'm just a little un[G]well
(I'm just a  little [Cadd9]unwell)  (((FADE)))

Cadd9 - x32033 
D - x00232 (or inversion - 200230)
G - 320033
Em7 - 022033
Bm7 - x24232 (or you can play a Bm - x24432)

this is my favorite version of UNWELL on Ultimate Guitar, and its one of my favorite songs. i love how hes given the lyrics and chords together.
you are able to see what chord comes next and exactly when to play it.
this makes it extreamly easy to follow, even for an unexperienced player,
like myself. thank you ianvomsaal for your great transcriptions :)

These were absolutaly spectaclar chords. This is probably the first song I've looked up that was absolutly perfect. I dont think there was a single error.

Not to mention this was a cool song, I gave it a five out of five.

Good work there.
