"When I Fall" by the Barenaked Ladies
Tabbed by www.JaeFord.com
Capo on 4th fret.

C G Am F

F                        C     G                 Am    F
  I look straight in the window, try not to look below
                   C   G                D     F
Pretend I'm not up here, I try counting sheep
                      C     G                Am    F
But the sheep seem to shower off this office tower
                          C  G                 D      F            
Nine-point-eight straight down I can't stop my knees

[Chorus]
               Am
I wish I could fly
          G
From this building
          D    F
From this wall
                Am
And if I should try
          G             D      F
Would you catch me if I fall?

                    C       G            Am      F
My hands clench the squeegee, my secular rosary
                C     G                 D      F
Hang on to your wallet, hang on to your rings
             C      G                Am       F
Can't look below me; something might throw me
                 C  G                D       F           
Curse at the windstorms that October brings
              C         G             Am         F
I look in the boardroom; a modern pharaoh's tomb
                C      G                D     F
I'd gladly swap places, if they care to dive
                        C     G                Am    F
They're lined up at the window, peer down into limbo
                      C      G                 D      F
They're frightened of jumping, in case they survive

               Am             G
I wish I could step from this scaffold 
     Em                   F                  Am
Onto soft green pastures, shopping malls, or bed
        G             Em            Am                D    F
With my family and my pastor and my grandfather who's Dead

                     C     G               Am      F
Look straight in the mirror, watch it come clearer
              C       G               D       F
I look like a painter, behind all the grease
                 C     G              Am     F
But paintings creating, and I'm just erasing
                C     G            D     F
A crystal-clear canvas is my masterpiece

[Chorus 2x]

C G        Am   F
    When I fall
C G        Am   F
    When I fall
C G        Am   F   C
    When I...     ooommm

It's better than most, I'll give you that. But it's not played with chords. It's almost all tab.

I'd say this is spot on!
