OK, so first things first. 
I found a different version of this tab but I found it hard to read and some 
chords were a bit dodgy.
So I'm using the correct parts from that tab and retabbing everything else.
The credit for that tab goes to 'blurryday' from 911tabs.

Main chords:

  G#m7  A   B   B7
e|--4---5---7---2-------------------------|     
B|--4---5---7---4-------------------------|
G|--4---6---8---2-------------------------|
D|--4---7---9---4-------------------------|
A|--6---7---9---2-------------------------|
E|-(4)--5---7-----------------------------|


Intro

G#m7    A    B    A


 G#m7   A           G#m7       A   
(Tracy Jacks) works in civil service 
 G#m7   A           G#m7       A   
(Tracy Jacks) it's steady employment 
 B      A           B          A    
(Tracy Jacks) is a golfing fanatic 
 B      A           B          A
(Tracy Jacks) but his put is erratic 
 G#m7   A           G#m7       A   
(Tracy Jacks) saw a Harley Street doctor 
 G#m7   A           G#m7       A   
(Tracy Jacks) who prescribed healthy living 
 B      A           B          A    
(Tracy Jacks) but he's getting past forty 
 B      A           B                    
(Tracy Jacks) and all his seams are splitting


CHORUS:

Every day he got closer                                        
He knew in his heart he was over                                     
I'd love to stay here and be normal                                  
But it's just so overrated

 G#m7   A            G#m7          A
(Tracy Jacks) left home without warning 
 G#m7   A            G#m7          A
(Tracy Jacks) at five in the morning 
 B      A            B             A
(Tracy Jacks) got on the first train to Walton 
 B      A            B             A
(Tracy Jacks) and stood on the sea front laughing 
 G#m7   A            G#m7          A
(Tracy Jacks) threw his clothes in the water 
 G#m7   A            G#m7          A
(Tracy Jacks) and ran around naked 
 B      A            B             A 
(Tracy Jacks) got stopped by the police 
 B      A            B                       
(Tracy Jacks) and escorted back home where 


REPEAT CHORUS


 G#m7   A     G#m7   A
(Tracy Jacks) uu     iuhh
 G#m7   A     G#m7   A
(Tracy Jacks) uu     iuhh
 B      A     B      A                      
(Tracy Jacks) uu     iuhh
 B      A     B      A                      
(Tracy Jacks) uu     iuhh

G#m7                     A       B
And then it happened on a Tuesday morning 
G#m7            A                    B
Tracy Jacks bulldozed down the house he lived in  
            
Saying, 'It's just so overrated!'

Tab sounds great. One thing though, if you use the bar chords for A and B throughout the song, you can destroy your wrist/hand. I watched some live footage of this song, and Graham Coxon plays open chords: (x02220) for A and (x24442) for B.

Also it starts on a Bsus (799977) twice then the quick A to B.
