Murder in the city - Avett Brothers
Capo III

The Chords aren't matched up perfectly with the words but the structure is correct.

*Fixed Cm7(no5) to Cmaj7(no5) special thanks to 'thegeniusboy05'.

Check out this tab if you haven't already. It has a nice picking verse you can use 
instead of these chords:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_avett_brothers/murder_in_the_city_ver3_tab.htm

Here are some funny chords:                    
   C7maj(no5)     C/E        Am/E      C7maj(no5)
   |---0---|   |---0---|   |---0---|   |---0---|
   |---1---|   |---1---|   |---1---|   |---0---|
   |---4---|   |---0---|   |---2---|   |---0---|
   |---2---|   |---2---|   |---2---|   |---2---|
   |---3---|   |-------|   |-------|   |---3---|

You can play C7maj(no5) two different ways. I like the first one.  

The song:                     
C C7maj(no5) C/E Am/E Fmaj7 Am/E x2

C        C7maj(no5)        C/E   Am/E  Fmaj7
If I get murdered in the city
         Am/E               C
don't go revenging in my name.
                C7maj(no5)     C/E    Am/E   Fmaj7
One person dead from such is plenty
           Am/E          C     Am
No need to go get locked away.

       G          C     Am
When I leave your arms;
           G            C     Am
the things that I think of...
           G      Fmaj7    C       
No need to get over alarmed.
Am  G      C
I'm coming home!

C C7maj(no5) C/E Am/E Fmaj7 Am/E x2

C        C7maj(no5)         C/E    Am/E   Fmaj7
I wonder which brother is better
              Am/E              C
which one our parents loved the most
           C7maj(no5)       C/E     Am/E   Fmaj7
I sure did get in lots of trouble
               Am/E          C   Am
They seemed to let the other go

       G                    C    Am
A tear fell from my fathers eye
           G                 C    Am
I wondered what my dad would say
         G                  Fmaj7        C
He'd say I love you and I'm proud of you both
Am         G         C
In so many different ways

C C7maj(no5) C/E Am/E Fmaj7 Am/E x2

C        C7maj(no5)        C/E   Am/E   Fmaj7
If I get murdered in the city
            Am/E         C
Go read the letter in my desk
             C7maj(no5)    C/E       Am/E   Fmaj7
Don't bother with all my belongings
        Am/E             C    Am
But pay attention to the list

             G               C          Am
Make sure my sister knows I loved her
             G                C     Am
Make sure my mother knows the same

       G                  Fmaj7         C
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
                          G         C    Am
like the love that let us share our name
       G                  Fmaj7         C
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
                          G         C
like the love that let us share our name

C C7maj(no5) C/E Am/E Fmaj7 Am/E x2

What you have labeled as Cm7(both cases) is a CMaj7 chord, not a C minor 7. The note underneath the chord transcription suggest to me that you know this, but seeing the name repeatedly labeled Cm7 was distracting to me.

Thanks a ton. I must have messed it up when I edited it. I'll fix it now.

Apparently Ultimate guitar has a hard time showing uppercase M's. It was a glitch, I suppose I'll change it to Cmaj7(no5)
