About this tab version
This is the first version, and is quite true to Adams' acoustic performances, where he opts for Sus and 7th chords instead of straight majors. Was this info helpful? Yes No
From the record "Prisoner"
Tab here based on Spectrum Sessions solo acoustic performance

[Intro]
Gsus2 with hammer on low E third fret, 2x

[Verse 1]
(Gsus2)
How am I supposed to know  when it's time to go
        Cadd9           (Emin7)
In the       middle of the      night
              (Gsus2)
When  I'm       all alone
(Gsus2)
Don't know  what to do
(Gsus2)
Don't know what     I'm  even supposed to say
                Cadd9       (Emin7)
Like a          train goin           home
                   (Gsus2)
Well it starts to     roll away

{Pre-chorus/Bridge]
   (Cadd9)     (G6 or G5)      (Emin7)      (G6 or G5)
The    cars don't  move in the      middle of the    night
(Cadd9)             (G6 or G5)           (Emin7)    (G6 or G5)
Lost inside the      void of the       fading tail    lights
  (Cadd9)            (G6 or G5)   (Emin7)   (G6 or G5)
I    swear I wasn't  lonely when I   met you,    girl

[Chorus 1]
       (Cadd9)                (Emin7)          (A7sus4)
But      I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
(A7sus4)
I don't know anything anymore

(Gsus2) hammer low E

[Verse 2]
(Gsus2)
I got this achin' in my chest
(Gsus2)
rollin' round like a pile of bones
             Cadd9        (Emin7)
In a        broken little          box
              (Gsus2)
It looks          a lot like you
(Gsus2)
Laughing to yourself , in a quiet room
       Cadd9                    (Emin7)
Our eyes          knowing          more
                   (Gsus2)
Than they            probably ought to

{Pre-chorus/Bridge]

(Cadd9)          (G6 or G5)      (Emin7)      (G6 or G5)
The    cars don't  move in the    middle of the    night
 (Cadd9)             (G6 or G5)        (Emin7)    (G6 or G5)
Lost inside the      void of the       fading tail  lights
  (Cadd9)               (G6 or G5)       (Emin7)   (G6 or G5)
I    swear I wasn't     lonely when I     met you,    girl

[Chorus 2]
        (Cadd9)                (Emin7)          (A7sus4)
But      I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                   (Cadd9)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                   (A7sus4)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                  (Cadd9)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure

(Emin7)              ( A7sus4)            (Emin7)

            (Cadd9)           (Emin7)      (A7sus4)
I was so      sure
                             (Gsus2)
I don't know anything anymore

(Gsus2) hammer low E

[Verse 3]
(Gsus2)
The walls are all cracked    the fan stutters in the room
(Cadd9(           (Emin7)
Where we          slept
                           (Gsus2)
Where I woke up    next to you
(Gsus2)
Sometimes a man don't know     when he's supposed to walk away
              (Cadd9)               (Emin7)
I hear a           rumble and a       moan
                   (Gsus2)
I feel like an      outbound train

{Pre-chorus/Bridge]
(Cadd9)          (G6 or G5)     (Emin7)     (G6 or G5)
The    cars don't  move in the   middle of the    night
 (Cadd9)             (G6 or G5)      (Emin7)   (G6 or G5)
Lost inside the      void of the     fading tail   lights
(Cadd9)               (G6 or G5)     (Emin7)     (G6 or G5)
I    swear I wasn't   lonely when I    met you,   girl

[Chorus 3]
       (Cadd9)                (Emin7)          (A7sus4)
But      I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                    (Cadd9)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                    (A7sus4)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure
                   (Emin7)                    (Cadd9)
I was        so        bored    I was so      sure

(Emin7)              ( A7sus4)            (Emin7)
            (Cadd9)
I was so      sure
(Emin7)              ( A7sus4)            (Emin7)
            (Cadd9)
I was so      sure
     (Emin7)              ( A7sus4)            (Emin7)
            (Cadd9)
I was so      sure
      (Emin7)              (A7sus4)
                           (Gsus2)
I don't know anything anymore

Is there a way to adjust the chord diagrams?

KarlPK 56 Feb 22, 2017 06:02 PM

Rob, not quite sure what you are asking.
Here are the chord positions, relative to the capo

Gsus2 -- 300230
Cadd9 -- x32030
G5-- 3x0030
G6 -- 320030
Emin7 -- 020030
A7sus4 -- x02030
