Capo 6

Picked:
                    C
Take everything you know and write it on your skin
                  G
And you can carry on and forget everything
                    F                       C
Take everything you own and put it in your car
               G
You can drive away, drive away so far,
                F                            C
And drive into a lake and take off all your clothes,
                   G
Set your clothes on fire, now you are alone
                      F                       C
But you've got all you know written on your skin,
                 G
So you can carry on and forget everything


Strummed:
PRE-CHORUS:

C                 F         C
All the things I'd rather be,
                  F         C
All the things I'd rather be

Strummed:
CHORUS:

C                                     Am  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    F            C
I can, only leave


Picked:
                    C
Take everything you know and write it on your skin
                  G
And you can carry on and forget everything
                    F                      C
Take everything you own and put it in your car
               G
You can drive away, drive away so far,
                F                            C
And drive into a lake and take off all your clothes,
                   G
Set your clothes on fire, now you are alone
                      F                      C
But you've got all you know written on your skin,
                 G
So you can carry on and forget everything


Strummed:
PRE-CHORUS:

C                 F         C
All the things I'd rather be,
                  F         C
All the things I'd rather be


Strummed:
CHORUS:
C                                     Am  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    F            C
I can, only leave
C                                     Am  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    F            C
I can, only leave

MID-SECTION:

C                                 G
Life feels like a music box, I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off
    C                                 G
And life feels like a music box, I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off

     C                                              G
(Let's start again)
And life feels like a music box (start again), I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off
 (let's start again)

     C                                             G
And life feels like a music box (start again) I'm spinning round slowly and I can't get off


Strummed:
CHORUS:
C                                     Am  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    F            C
I can, only leave
C                                     Am  
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here
    F            C
I can, only leave

C                         F            C
I can't, I can't, I can't stay around here.

When I play it I tend to do all strummed but Newton does:

-First Verse picked

-Pre-Chorus Strummed

-Chorus Strummed

-Second Chorus picked (I think)

-Pre-Chorus Strummed

-Chorus Strummed

-Mid-section picked then strummed

-Chorus Strummed

Hope that is what you wanted.
