Song:           This Room
Artist:         Fat Freddy's Drop
Album:          Green Room 003: Earth
tabbed by James van Rooyen

This is taken from a live version I found on the net, and is from
Gilles Peterson's live BBC sessions. Search youtube for it. V nice version.
I put it under the Green Room album as it has a similar version,
although I'm not sure how these two compare.
The BOATS version is in Fm (I think), whereas this is Cm, so
don't try fit these chords to the original, it will sound horrible :)


Main riff from the version on Green Room 003: (EAR)TH
E------------------------|
B------------------------|
G-----------3------------|
D-------3-5---3----------|
A--3--6---------6-3----3-|
E------------------------|


Chords:
    Cm  Gm   G#   Gm7
E---3---3----4----3--|
B---4---3----4----3--|
G---5---3----5----3--|
D---5---5----6----3--|
A--------------------|
E--------------------|


The chords for the first verse are the same for
all the others:

          Cm
I sit and watch you from my window
Gm
Giving yourself away
G#                  Gm7      Cm
You've been working hard all day
          Cm
I see the ground catch at your feet
Gm
I see the sweet signs of defeat
G#                         Gm7     Cm
Like you're beaten but you feel no pain


And then you turn to me instinctively
checking if you're alone
like a relfex from my guilty mind
I fall away into the background like a shadow on the wall
To leave you with your piece of mind

Chorus:
I watch from my window up high
All alone in this room
So many people go the same way
I think it's time that I change my view(s)

Like a king in his lonely kingdom
A ruler who had no rules
See I've got nothing left to lose
I think it's time that I change my view(S)

Cm
Why did you choose my way
            Gm
Why did you come down this lonely street
          G#
Was it to meet me
          Gm7                                Cm
Was it to tango with the roots they sound so sweet


Play these notes short & sharp:
E----------------------------|
B----------------------------|
G----------------------------|
D------------------------1---|
A-1-3----------------1-3---3-|
E----------------------------|
   Sweeter than gold

E------------------------|
B------------------------|
G------------------------|
D-1-3----------------1-3-|
A------------------3-----|
E------------------------|
  Sweeter than fame

E----------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------1---1--------------1----------------|
A-1-3--------------------1-3---3---3-----------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  Sweeter than honey         More power than money


   Gm      F7         G#     Cm
E--6---66--55---------44-----3-------------------------------------------------------|
B--8---88--44---------44-----4-------------------------------------------------------|
G--7---77--55---------55-----5-------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   walking along this lonely street
Gm
someone I'd like to meet
G#                  Gm7
Someone I'd like to know
     Cm
As a kindred soul


Gm    F7    G#      Cm                  Gm
oh so spiritual the sound ran down like waterfalls
             G#
running away never the same
Gm7               Cm
Changing my view of you everyday


Then a solo in Cm with the original chord progression as the
backing, and finishing with the chorus:

[I watch from my window up high,
All alone in this room,
So many people go the same way,
I think it's time that I changed my views

Like a king in his lonely kingdom,
A ruler who had no rules, Ooh
oh I got nothing got left to lose,
I think it’s time that I changed my views] (x5)
