Title:  Humble Me          
Artist: Norah Jones
Tabbed by: Stuart Lowe

Note: There is a "Eb" root note in the chorus on the word "knees"
and "please" in the original recording. This suggests it was
probably played on a 7-string guitar, perhaps using a capo.
I have tabbed this to be playable on the 6-string guitar most
of us own, with open strings, that is no capo.
I have used "B" to replace the "Eb" which works just fine.

The remaining verses and chorus can be played similar to the tab above:

Baby Teresa she's got your eyes 
I see you all the time 
when she asks about her daddy 
I never know what to say

Note: In the previous verse, there is a variation on the last bar:

e|------------------|---
B|------------------|---
G|------------------|---
D|-------4-6--------|---
A|-2-4s6----5p4-5p4-|-2-
E|--—---------------|---

Heard you kicked the bottle 
and helped to build the church 
you carry an honest wage 
is it true you have somebody keeping you company ? 

What do you say 
when it's all gone away ? 
baby I didn't mean to hurt you 
truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart 
no matter how hard you resist it 
it never rains when I want it to 

You humble me Lord 
humble me Lord 
I'm on my knees empty 
you humble me Lord 
you humble me Lord 
please, please, please forgive me

you humble me.

All very good! Except I think you accidentally made a mistake. In the chorus where she holds "Lord", I think you meant to say:

|---------------|---------------|
|--------0------|--------0------|
|---------------|---------------|
|------4---4----|------4---4----|
|----7-------7--|----7-------6--|
|-4-------------|-4-------------|

just move the fingered notes up a string. Also, the chord at the "I'm on my" portion seems to be more of an E chord like:

|---------------|
|--------0------|
|----1-----1----|
|------------2--|
|------2--------|
|-0-------------| ? or something like that.
