Avril Lavigne: Complicated
I love this song, and I wanted to make a super-simple tab for it. Enjoy.

Capo on 5


[Intro]

(Am F C G)

Uh huh, life's like this
Uh huh, that's the way it is

Cause life's like this, uh huh
Uh huh, that's the way it is


[Verse I]

C
Chill out, whatcha yellin' for?
Am
Lay back  It's all been done before
F                    G
And if you could only let it be
You will see


[Verse II] (same chords as Verse I)

I like you the way you are
When we're drivin in your car
And you're talkin to me one-on-one
But you become


[Pre-Chorus]

F
Somebody else 'round everyone else
Am
Watchin' your back Like you can't relax
F
You're tryin' to be cool
                        G
You look like a fool to me- tell me


[Chorus]

Am                           F                C     
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
G                   Am                                 F 
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else 
     C      
Gets me frustrated 
G
Life's like this, you-
Am                      F                  
You fall and you crawl and you break and 
        C                      G       
you take what you get  And you turn into
Dm
Honestly, you promised me
F                C
I'm never gonna find you faking
G
No no no


[Verse III] (same chords as Verse I)

You come over unannounced
Dressed up like you're something else
Where you are and where it's at you see 
You're making me laugh out When you strike a pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know you're not fooling anyone
When you become


[Pre-Chorus]

F
Somebody else 'round everyone else
Am
Watchin' your back Like you can't relax
F
You're tryin' to be cool
                        G
You look like a fool to me- tell me


[Chorus]

Am                           F                C     
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
G                   Am                                 F 
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else 
     C      
Gets me frustrated 
G
Life's like this, you-
Am                      F                  
You fall and you crawl and you break and 
        C                      G       
you take what you get  And you turn into
Dm
Honestly, you promised me
F                C
I'm never gonna find you faking
G
No no no


[Post-Chorus]

                Am
(no no no) No no (no no no)
F                  G
No no (no no no) No no


[Bridge]

C
Chill out, whatcha yellin' for?
Am
Lay back  It's all been done before
F                    G
And if you could only let it be
You will see


[Pre-Chorus]

F
Somebody else 'round everyone else
Am
Watchin' your back Like you can't relax
F
You're tryin' to be cool
                        G
You look like a fool to me- tell me


[Chorus]

Am                           F                C     
Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
G                   Am                                 F 
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else 
     C      
Gets me frustrated 
G
Life's like this, you-
Am                      F                  
You fall and you crawl and you break and 
        C                      G       
you take what you get  And you turn into
Dm
Honestly, you promised me
F                C
I'm never gonna find you faking
G
No no no


[Outro]

                Am
(no no no) No no (no no no)
F                  G
No no (no no no) No no

Yeah. Capo 5. Not so good on a 3/4 size(I used to have one), but a great version of the song. Shame that now I come back to revisit this that I can now play the other versions. Still, if you are a beginner and have the right sized guitar then this is a good version to learn. Great song too!

It might sound really silly and redundant but for beginners its really helpful to type out the cords for the full song instead of just saying that they are the same as the previous because when you're trying to read the words its gets confusing to keep looking back, its easy to loose your place.
