Capo on 2

Intro chords (x2):
Bm  G  Em  G
Bm  G  D  Asus

Bm          G         Em       G
I've done myself an impossible crime
Bm     G	      D        Asus
Had to paint myself a hole and fall inside
Bm      G             Em        G
If it's far enough in sight and rhyme
Bm       G	      D         Asus		G
I get to wear another dress and count in time

    D	      Asus       G		    
Oh, won't you do me the favor, man,
     D	    Asus   G
Of a giving mind, 
  D   Asus      G
A polymorphing opinion here,
         D        Asus
And your vague outline,

G

Bm  G  Em  G
Bm  G  D  Asus

Bm          G            Em       G
I'll find myself another burning gate
Bm     G	        D	       Asus
A pretty face, a vague idea I can't relate
Bm              G                Em       G
And this is get what you get for pulling pins
Bm          G	            D	       Asus  G
Out of the hole inside the hole you're in

      D 	Asus	     G
It's like I'm pressed on the handle bars
      D 	 Asus   G
Of a blind man's bike
    D         Asus	     G
No straws to grab, just the rushing wind
	D	Asus
On the rolling mind

G	 	   
La la la la laa

Bm  G  Em  G
Bm G D Asus

D

2x

     Asus     G    D
They want you to decide,
Asus    Csus2     D  
Eventually, it happens,
      Asus  G		D
Some gather on one side,
      Asus     Csus2    D		
With all their pearly snapping,
     Asus      G            D
They close the basement door,
   Asus     Csus2    D
It sets our teeth to chatter,
    Asus  G	       D
You never saw it before,
    Asus
But now that hardly matters,


       Bm7         D
You're old enough, boy,
         Bm7                D
Too many summers you've enjoyed,
             Bm7                 D                   Asus
So spin the wheel, We'll set you up with some odd convictions,
                       G
Because you're finally golden, boy,


Bm  G,  Em  G
Bm  G,  D  Asus


      D 	Asus	     G
It's like I'm pressed on the handle bars
      D 	 Asus   G
Of a blind man's bike
    D 	     Asus	     G
No straws to grab, just the rushing wind
	D	Asus
On the rolling mind

Great tab for a seemingly untabbable song.

Two minor points:

-I think Asus is "Asus4" (x02230) specifically.

-It sounds right if you play a Amaj just after the Asus4 after the lyrics "odd convictions."

As an aside, the Bm7 doesn't sound right, but I can't think of another chord that's more appropriate.

Not bad...The skeleton of your chord chart is mostly solid but there are certain problems with a few of the chords that kinda mess up this tab.

Firstly, I think that the capo should be on the third fret, not the second. The Bm7 during "You're old enough boy" should just be a Bm. As for all those Asus chords - Asus what? I'm not quite sure what it is (I'll have a listen and see if I can tighten up these chords), but I think that an A5 might be fitting.

I think that

" Asus G D
They want you to decide,
Asus Csus2 D
Eventually, it happens,"

Could be corrected to:

D A G D
They want you to decide,
A C D
Eventually, it happens,

I'm not sure about the Csus2...It sounds almost right but a simple C chord sounds right.

Anyway, that's enough of that - I'll have a listen and report back soon hopefully :) Thanks!
