Haven't seen one tab on here near correct so here is one that is.

________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________   
|-0----3-|-2----3-|-2-----|-3----3---|

- For the A and D chord I use the barred variations. I also
  Seen The band use them in a video, but both sound nice.
  and for the Bm and Cm chords I use the first variations shown |
________________________________________________________________

e|-5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--|
B|-5-5--7-7--5-5--7-7--5-5--7-7--5-5--7-7--|

D|-7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


THEN PLAY: A   D
           A   D

A                                                           D
These walls are paper thin and everyone hears every little sound.

A                                                           D
Everyone's a voyeur as they're watching me watching them right now.

They're shaking hands They're shaking in their shoes, oh lord don't shake me down
Everyone wants two of them and half of everyone else is around.
It's been agreed the whole world stinks so no ones taking showers anymore.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-[Now Switch from pattern to only strumming the chord once]-




A                                   D           | e|----------|       
Laugh hard it's a long ways to the bank         | B|----------|x3 
I can't be blamed for nothing anymore           | G|-6h7-9----|
It's been a long time since you've been around  | D|----------|after
Laugh hard it's a long ways to the band         | A|----------|each
                                                | E|----------|line


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


-[the next thing played is a pattern with four chords]




A    D   Bm   G


A                D                Dm                    G
Tow the line to tax the time you know that you don't know.

A             D              Bm           G
I can't be a fool for every one that I don't know.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then repeat the whole thing and you have the song.
