Verse 1:
Fmaj7/C              C   
The clouds move over Pontiac skies
Fmaj7/C                      C
Their silent thunder matches mine
Fmaj7/C                  C - Cmaj9/B - Am
I know this feeling from long ago
Fmaj7/C                          Gadd4
I wondered was it gone but now I know
 
Bridge:
Am                      Gadd4    F
So when she calls don't send her my way
Am                   Gadd4        F
When it hurts you'll know its the right thing
 
Chorus:
Am               C         Fmaj7/C
Michigans in the rear view now
Am                          C          Fmaj7/C
Keep your hands where I can see em
Am                       C      Fmaj7/C
You took the words right out my mouth
Am                         C          Fmaj7/C
When you knew that I would need em
Am        C              Fmaj7/C
What am I supposed to do now?
        C            Gadd4        
Without you, without you

Am          Gadd4      C
 
Verse 2:
Fmaj7/C               C   
Its unannounced, like you'd expect it
Fmaj7/C                          C   
Among broke down brake lines and Motown records
Fmaj7/C                 C - Cmaj9/B - Am
And all thats left is a blind reflection
Fmaj7/C                                    Gadd4
But you know whats coming and you regret it

Bridge:
Am                      Gadd4    F
So when she calls don't send her my way
Am            Gadd4        F
When it hurts most its the right thing
 
Chorus:
Am               C         Fmaj7/C

Keep your hands where I can see em
Am                       C      Fmaj7/C
You took the words right out my mouth
Am                         C          Fmaj7/C
When you knew that I would need em
Am        C              Fmaj7/C
What am I supposed to do now?
        C            Gadd4        
Without you, without you

Chorus:
Am               C         Fmaj7/C

I really would love if you could maybe tab out the little riffs inbetween verses and in the middle.

I'm watching a live recording of this and it does seem like these shapes are correct for Joey's playing (the darker haired, glasses wearing player of this duo). However, he's playing with a capo on the first fret with these shapes, which would suggest he's tuned 1 1/2 steps down (the equivalent of three frets or C#-F#-B-E-G#-C# from low to high). You can choose to tune down 1 1/2 and place a capo on the first or simply tune 1 whole step down as this tab suggests with no capo. There will only be a slight difference to string tension and sound in comparison to Joey's actual playing.

Version two of this tab here on ultimate guitar shows Kenneth's chord shapes as he plays capoed on the third fret. This duo really mixes it up with playing at different positions based on their capo placements and tunings. It makes for a great sound.

Cheers.
