Am E Am
Am
       
[Verse]
  Am                    Fmaj7
i sold my soul for the second time
         C             B11  E
cos the land, it don't pay me
   Am                    Fmaj7
i begged my landlord for some more time
          C                 B11 E
he said "son, the bills are waiting"
    Am                       Fmaj7
my best friend called me the other night
          C           B11 E
he said "man, are you crazy?"
    Am                    Fmaj7
my girlfriend told me to get a life
           C           B11 E
she said "boy, are you lazy"

[Chorus]
Dm           Am      (you can play barre chords here)
but i don't mind
    Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm      Am
i'll be fine
        Fmaj7                
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E
i can't get a life if my heart's not in it...

Fmaj7 Am

[Verse]
   Am                   Fmaj7
i lost my faith in the summertime
        C         B11 E
cos it don't stop raining
    Am                 Fmaj7
the sky all day is as black as night
         C      B11 E
but i'm not complaining
   Am                  Fmaj7
i begged my doctor for one more line
          C           B11  E
he said "son... words fail me"
   Am                   Fmaj7
it ain't no place to be killing time
        C        B11 E
i guess i'm just lazy

[Chorus]
Dm           Am
i don't mind
    Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm      Am
i'll be fine
        Fmaj7                
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E
i can't get a life if my heart's not in it...

[Instrumental]
(repeat intro)

[Outro]
Am E  (ends with Am)

now the tab is completely right. i noticed that the intro wasnt Am Fmaj7 (i've seen a video from usher hall last week and noel was playing Am E).
thanks for the correction!

Great tab for a great song. I can't find fault, so - 5 stars!

The tab is just about correct... the first part of the solo ends

9-8-9 instead of 7-9-7

Otherwise superb
