I love this song, and it's not very difficult to play.  It is, however, difficult to 
 Each of the three verses, and two of the three choruses  have a different chord 
so... have fun with that.

The "G-D-Em" progression may also be A "G-walkdown-to-Em"


Spoon: The Underdog


Intro:

G...                            G-D

C     Bm     D     G   G-D (x2)

Em                         Am

   Picture yourself in the living room

                           G

your pipe and slippers set out for you

                         Bm

I know you think that it ain't too far

Em                           C

   But I hear the call of a lifetime ring

         C-   D-     G

felt the need to get up for it

                    Am

Oh, you cut out the middleman

    Bm

get free from the middleman

C                         G

  You got no time for the messenger,

C                       D              G

  got no regard for the thing that you don't understand,

C                        Bm

  you got no fear of the underdog,

D

  that's why you will not survive

G C G D D G C-G

C   Bm   D   G  G-D x2

Em                        C

  I want to forget how conviction fits

          D            G

but can I get out from under it?

             Bm

Can I gut it out of me?

C                G

 It can't all be wedding cake

                Am

It can't all be boiled away

                      Bm

I try but I can't let go of it

  B

I can't let go of it,

C                             G

 'Cause you don't talk to the water boy

C                              D             G

 and there's so much you could learn but you don't want to know,

C                        Bm

 You will not back up an inch ever,

D

 that's why you will not survive,

G C G D D G C-G

C   Bm   D   G  G-D

C   Bm   D   G....             G-D

C   Bm   D   G  G-D

Em                 Am

  The thing that I tell you now

D             G              G-D

It may not go over well

Em                Am

And it may not be photo-op

D                 G              G-D

in the way that I spell it out

C                            Bm

 But you won't hear from the messenger,

C                       Bm                 G     D   
C

 don't wanna know 'bout something that you don't understand,

                       Bm

You got no fear of the underdog,

D

 that's why you will not survive

G C G D D G C-G

C   Bm   D   G  G-D x2

C   Bm   D

G C G D D G C-G

C   Bm   D   G  G-D

C   Bm   D   G....

Each place you have G-D, I'd put a Bm instead of the D. Aside from that, pretty spot-on. Thanks for tabbing this great song.

I actually think it's a B instead of the Bm damian22 is talking about. And also at the part where it goes "got no regard for the thing that you don't understand", you need to add a B C at the end.
