     When she goes, shes gone.

A        G#m  A         G#m    C#
If she stays, she stays here.

The girl does what she wants to do.
A
She knows what she wants to do.
    A  G#m F#m  E       E F# G#m A 
And I know Im fakin it,

     Im such a dubious soul,

A      G#m        A   G#m
And a walk in the garden
C#
Wears me down.

Tangled in the fallen vines,
A
Pickin up the punch lines,
A    G#m  F#m  E       E F#m G#m A
Ive just been fakin it,
A   G#m F#m  E7  
Not really makin it.

     Is there any      danger?

A   G#m  A     G#m
No, no, not really.
C#
Just lean on me.

Takin time to treat your friendly neighbors honestly.

A   G#m  F#m   E        E F#m G#m A
Ive just been fakin it,
A   G#m  F#m   E        E F#m G#m A
Im not really makin it.
A   G#m  F#m   E        E F#m G#m A
This feeling of fakin it
A   G#m  F#m   E7
I still havent shaken it.

     Prior to this      lifetime

A   G#m        A   G#           C#
I surely was a tailor. Look at me. 

Talking:
C#      G#       C#      G# 
(good morning, mr. leitch.
 Have you had a busy day? )
C#
I own the tailors face and hands.
A
I am the tailors face and hands and
A G#m  F#m   E     E F#m G#m A
I know Im fakin it,
A  G#m  F#m   E       E F#m G#m A
Im not really makin it.
     A  G#m  F#m   E        E F#m G#m A
This feeling of fakin it
A   G#m  F#m   E        E F#m G#m A
I still havent shaken it.

Needs an F# back to C# in "the girl does what she wants to do" line, and the "tangled in the fallen vines" line, and " I own the tailor's face and hands. This is a great song....Having so much fun with this tab.BrianB

On the 'If she stays, she stays here" the second G# should not be a minor chord... if played as a major it gives it a nice flow. Like this:

A G#m A G# C#
If she stays, she stays here

My previous post would be shown as:

F# C#
The girl does what she wants to do
F# A
She knowa what she wants to do
