            [Verse 1]

            A                    Asus4  A/F#  
            Her green plastic watering can 
            A/F#                     Amaj7  Dsus2
             For her fake chinese rubber plant
                          A    Dsus2
            In the fake plastic earth
            A                      Asus4  A/F#                                
             That she bought from a rubber man 
            A/F#                  Amaj7  Dsus2 
             In a town full of rubber plans
                    A       Dsus2 
            To get rid of itself

            [Chorus 1]

                       Bm11                  A
            It wears her out   It wears her out
                          Bm11               A
            It wears her out   It wears her out

            [Verse 2]
            A                 Bm11
            She lives with a broken man 
            A/F#               Amaj7  Dsus2  
             A cracked polystyrene  man 
                       A         Dsus2  
            Who just crumbles and burns 
            A             Asus4  A/F# 
             He used to do surgery
            A/F#                 Amaj7  D  
             For girls in the eight  -  ies 
                         A    Dsus2 
            But gravity always wins
            [Chorus 2]

                             Bm11              A
            And it wears him out  It wears him out
                             Bm11       A
            And it wears him out  It we-ear  -  err  -  ers

            [Verse 3]

                A              Asus4  A/F#   
            She looks like the real thing
            A/F#                   Amaj7 Dsus2
             She tastes like the real thing
                      A    Dsus2    
            My fake plastic love
            A                  Asus4  A/F#      
             But I can't help the feeling
            A/F#                        Amaj7  Dsus2
             I could blow through the ceil  -  ing 
                   A          Dsus2
            If I just turn and run

            [Chorus 3]
                            Bm11              A
            And it wears me out   It wears me out 
                        Bm11                   A        
            It wears me out   It wear - err - ers me out 


            And if I could be who you wanted
            If I could be who you wanted 
              Dsus2           A 
            All the time    All the time

            mmmm mmmm mmmm

            Dsus2    A    Dsus2    A (1 strum finish)

thinks it´s better than the others.

The best out of all of the tabs for this song (brilliant song, second one I ever learnt on guitar) but there are a few mistakes (I have the tab book):
1) It's E6 (0 2 2 1 2 0) not Amaj7 in the second line of the verse.
2) There's no variation in the second verse, it stays the same.
3) Amaj7 IS played once in the song, at the end between the third chorus and the outro.
4) In the last verse and the outro you play Bm11 not Dsus2.
Thanks, Ced.
