Capo 6

Intro: The guitar riff is something like below (with sixteenth note 
variations)that is played over and over again. [Take note that strings make up a 
good amount of the song as well and can be reproduced with a synth/keyboard or in 
some cases guitar, but I have omitted it for the sake of simplicity.]

Verse: The riff's also in the verses; you can play these chords with it...
      Em                  C           G
In my own little world it hardly ever rains
      Em                  C           G
I've never gone hungry or always felt safe
           Em                  C            G
I got some money in my pocket shoes on my feet
      Em
In my own little world 
C          G
Population me

  Em                            C              G
I try to stay awake through the Sunday morning church
          Em                        C                   G
I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give 'til it hurts
      Em                       C                 G
and I turn off the news when I don't like what I see
           Em
Yeah, it's easy to do when it's 
C          G
Population me


Chorus:
D                   Em
  What if there's a bigger picture
C             G
  What if I'm missing out
D                   Em
  What if there's a greater purpose
C            G              D  C   G
  I could be living right now, ooh-ooh
             D          C      G   D
  Outside my own little world, yea-ah


Verse:
Em                        C                G
Stopped at the red light, looked out my window
        Em                    C                  G
I saw a cardboard sign, said "Help this homeless widow"
      Em                     C         G
Just above this sign was the face of a human
  Em                       C                    G
I thought to myself, "God, what have I been doing?"

     Em                          C                  G
So I rolled down my window and I looked her in the eye
   Em                  C                 G
Oh how many times have I just passed her by
  Em                         C        G
I gave her some money then I drove on through
       Em
And my own little world reached
C          G
Population two


Chorus:
D                   Em
  What if there's a bigger picture
C             G
  What if I'm missing out
D                   Em
  What if there's a greater purpose
C            G              D  C   G
  I could be living right now, ooh-ooh
             D          C      G   D
  Outside my own little world, yea-ah


Bridge:
        Em                 C            G
Father, break my heart for what breaks Yours
        Em             C     G
Give me open hands and open doors
         Em                   C       G
Put Your light in my eyes and let me see
        Em                  C          G
That my own little world is not about me


Chorus:
D                   Em
  What if there's a bigger picture
C             G
  What if I'm missing out
D                   Em
  What if there's a greater purpose
C            G              D  C   G
  I could be living right now, ooh-ooh
             D          C      G   D
  Outside my own little world, yea-ah

The 6 is intended to be a 5 in the riff.

Great tab, but think it sounds a tiny bit better on capo 5.
Thanks!
