Capo
novice
8th fret
I saw Plain White T's perform this song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Tim was using
a capo on the 8th fret and Tom on the 4th.
Gtr. 1 (acoustic): Capo 8 [All guitars are in standard tuning, EADGBE]
Gtr. 2 (acoustic): Capo 4 [All chords are relative to capo]
Gtr. 3 (electric): no capo
All Chords in parenthesis are Gtr.2
I think the in the bridge may just be a G and the B is probably played by the bass, but
you can play it either way.


[Intro]

Gtr. 1: 

(Capo 8)(Not the exact number of times he strums each chord, but you can figure it out)

[Verse 1]

(E)                     (B)
 C                       G
My head is stuck in the clouds
(E)                 (B)
 C                   G
She begs me to come down
    (C#m)      (B)      (A)    (B)
     Am         G        F      G
Says "Boy, quit foolin' around"
(E)                     (B)
 C                       G
I love the view from up here
(E)                     (B)

Warm sun and wind in my ear
     (C#m)     (B)         (A)
      Am        G           F
We'll watch the world from above

      G                     C       C7
As it turns to the rhythm of love


[Chorus]

      (A)             (E) (E7)

(G#7) (C#m)
 E7    Am
 All  mine
(C#m)   (B)    (A)
Am       G      F
Play the music low
   (B)                  (E)
    G                    C
and sway to the rhythm of love

[Verse 2]

(E)                   (B)

My heart beats like a drum
(E)                    (B)
 C                      G
A guitar string to the strum
 (C#m)     (B)        (A)
  Am        G          F
A beautiful song to be sung
(B)
 G
She's got
(E)                     (B)
 C                       G

 C                                     G
That roll back when she's laughing at me
   (C#m) (B)         (A)
    Am    G           F
She rises up like the tide
   (B)                 (E)
    G                   C
The moment her lips meet mine

 All  mine

Play the music low

Oh, you're right! Thanks for the correction. I added it to an updated version and submitted it earlier.

Yours is the closest I've seen, especially capo placement. I found an awesome video of Tim disguising himself and "covering" his own song, shows finger placement up close. Please check it out, might be some perfections to make: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOA892sf8hc
