This is my version of Big Sur from the Thrills album "So much for the city"

I've stolen a couple of bits from the previous version and obviously added
in a few guitar bits too. The picking pattern from the intro is pretty much
maintained during most of the verses but usually with an open top string, play
around and see what you like the sound of. I don't think the opening Dsus2 is
strictly right but its the best I could figure out in the 15 mins I've spent on
this.

[Intro]
                     x2  [fILL 1]  --->[TO VERSE]
  Dsus2      Cmaj7       Em    F
e|---0--0--0|--0--0--0 |-0-0---1-|---------------|
B|----3--3--|---0--0---|-0-0---1-|---------------|
G|-----2--2-|----0--0--|-0-0---2-|---------------|
D|-0--------|----------|-2-2---3-|---------------|
A|----------|-3--------|-2-2---3-|---------------|
E|----------|----------|-0-0---1-|---------------|

e|----------|----------|---------------|
B|-------1-3|---1----3-|-1---3-1-------|
G|-0-0-2----|-2---2----|---2-----2-----|
D|----------|----------|---------------|
A|---------0|----------|---------------|
E|-3-3------|----------|---------------|

[Verse 1]
F                 Am    Dsus2
 So much for the city, tell me that you'll dance to the end
       F                                   [Fill 2]
 Just tell me that you'll dance to the end
F                   Am        Dsus2
 Hey hey you're the monkees, people said you monkeyed around,
      F                      [Fill 2]
 But nobody's listening now.

[Chorus]
C           F           Dm    G  Em       Am    Em                   Am
 Just don't go back to big sur,  hanging around letting your old man down
C           F          Dm       G                      F
 Just don't go back to big sur, baby baby please don't go
G                     [Fill 1]
 Baby please don't go.

[Verse 2]
F                 Am                     Dsus2
 So much for the street lights, they're never gonna guide you home
             F                         [Fill 2]
 No thet're never gonna guide you home
F                   Am         Dsus2
 Down at the steam boat show, all the kids start spittin'
F                                          [Fill 2]
  I guess it didn't live up to the billing.

[Chorus]
C           F          Dm     G  Em      Am      Em                   Am
 Just don't go back to big sur, hanging around, letting your old man down
C           F          Dm       G                      F
 Just don't go back to big sur, baby baby please don't go
G                       C
 Baby baby please don't go.

repeat [Intro] then [Fill 1]

[Solo]
e|--1-1--1-1--3-1-|0-------|0-0-0-0-0---|-----------|-1-1-1-1-1-0----|

 Just don't go back to big sur, hanging around, letting your old man down
C           F          Dm       G                      F
 Just don't go back to big sur, baby baby please don't go
G                       C
 Baby baby please don't go.

One hell of a tab but i think there is an Em like in the introduction, in the verses after: "baby baby please don't go"

In the chorus the "hanging around" part should perhaps be Em followed by an F rather than Am.
