Hey! Hope y'all enjoy my first chords & tab for ultimate-guitar. This version includes the melody as well as 
the chords. If there's anything I could improve on or whatever, feel free to comment and tell me, I would love
the criticism. Keep practicing and you'll be "Closer" to being better!

CAPO on 1st FRET

[Intro]

C D Em D C D Em D


[Verse 1: Andrew Taggart]

C         D        Em
Hey, I was doing just fine just before I met you
  D        C                              D    Em  D
I drank too much and that's an issue but I'm okay
C       D        Em
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
D    C                    D   Em  D
But I hope I never see them again

[Pre-Chorus: Andrew Taggart]

C                       D
  I know it breaks your heart
 Em                               D     C
Moved to the city in a broke down car and
                D
Four years, no calls
Em                                   D     
Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar and
C D         Em D
I  can't stop
    C D         Em D
No, I  can't stop

[Chorus: Andrew Taggart]

   C               D        Em                   D
So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
         C                 D 
That I know you can't afford
          Em                   D
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
           C                       D
Pull the sheets right off the corner
        Em                    D
Of the mattress that you stole
           C                  D
From your roommate back in Boulder
         Em             D
We ain't ever getting older

You, look as good as the day I met you
D   C                          D   Em   D
I forget just why I left you, I was insane
 C         D       Em
Stay, and play that Blink-182 song
D      C                      D    Em D
That we beat to death in Tuscon, okay

This is pretty awesome. Nice job. It is playable, easy to follow, all of the lyrics are there, and I like the extra work you did of tabbing out the vocal melodies incase someone wanted to play along that way. Well done!
