Tabbed by Josh Mullan

This is one of my favorite songs, but I still have yet to find an accurate tab for 
this song, so I figured I'd bang it out myself. Here ya go.

World to come along, she swears she knew, now she swears he's gone


[Chorus]

(same chords as 1st chorus)

She lies and says she's in love with him
Can't find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can't find a better man
She lies and says she still loves him
Can't find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man

(The rest of the song has the same chord progression as the chorus)

She loved him, yeah..
She don't want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah..
That's why she'll be back again
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man
Can't find a better man

I'm confused about that G5, that's a G minor you've got posted up on the list of chords.
