I've been looking all over for tabs and chords for this song. In my opinion this 
is the band's best song.
In my attempt and search, I decided that I could take a part in putting it 
together, so here is my attempt:

intro:
e|-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|
B|-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|
G|-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
A|-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|
E|-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|

Verse: 
Em,C,G,D
Bridge: 
(Bm7, Em9)x2 end on A
Chorus:
Em7, Bm7 /F#, Am7 

Em: 022000
C: 032010
G: 320003
D: 000232
Bm7: x24232
Em9:x22033
A: x02220
Em7: x79787
Bm7/F#: x97777
Am7: x75555


          Em                            C
'81 was the year shit hit the fan in a major way
    G                       D
a sad day for inspiring artists
         Em                     C
Almost 20 years after the fact I'm still on my hustle
    G                             D
Diggin' graves for an inspiring artist
Pushing daises up
          Em                     C
And never compromise the arts and make a crowd clap
     G                       D
Shit on since the first show
      Em                            C
But we turned feces to fertilizer
                 G                        D
So when you diss it's just food for the flowers to grow
       Em             C
Sold 15 plus out of backpacks, no trunks
  G                D
Too young to drive
But live hip hop
      Em                     C                      G                D
And the kids are upstate kids that thought rap was past tense, hence the last name
      Em                           C                   G        
Got name for playing basements and such and making songs that our friends 
  D
loved
     Em                              C        
And when the fish bowl got too small to hold the goldfish
   G                            D
We filled our gills with water and ripped that mother fucker like
 

           Bm7
So take a step back
And a breath in
        Em9
Let it out now
Put your chin up
          Bm7
You can do it tiger
You a man now
    Em9                                         A
And in your dream it's time to do the best you can now

            Em7
We bring ourselves down
         Bm7 /F#
And build ourselves up in disappointment
              Am7 
How fragile we are
              Am7 
So fragile we are, we just don't show it
             Em7
We'll shake up this town
          Bm7 / F#
And shoot down the stars for our enjoyment
            Am7
So sexy we are
            Am7
So sexy we are, we just don't know it

Em7        Bm7 /F#           Am7 


  Em                             C
This is what you wanted right?
                               G                          D
How many nights were spent pouring out your guts dummy?
                        Em                               C
How many punishments endured for fucking up in school?
                           G                               D
How many teachers proved wrong by writing songs instead?
My point exactly
          Em                           C
But you knew you had a spark, did you?
                             G                               D
Something producin' to the dreams your pop's dreams lent you
                      Em                        C
Stay focused when nothing seemed to make sense
                           G                       D
Stealing verses with that Cassius Clay confidence
                Em                               C
Sometimes you stubborn as shit, that's the McCoy in you
                   G                       D
You learn to be a man without losing the boy in you
Just do your thing man

          Bm7
So take a step back
And a breath in
        Em9
Let it out now
Put your chin up
         Bm7
You can do it tiger
You a man now
       Em9                                      A
And in your dream it's time to do the best you can now

           Bm7
So take a step back
And a breath in
       Em9
Let it out now
Put your chin up
          Bm7
You can do it tiger
You a man now
      Em9                                       A
And in your dream it's time to do the best you can now

            Em7
We bring ourselves down
         Bm7 /F#
And build ourselves up in disappointment
              Am7 
How fragile we are
              Am7 
So fragile we are, we just don't show it
             Em7
We'll shake up this town
          Bm7 / F#
And shoot down the stars for our enjoyment
            Am7
So sexy we are
            Am7
So sexy we are, we just don't know it



*****Travis repeats chorus again*



            Em7
We break ourselves down
         Bm7 /F#
And build ourselves up in disappointment
              Am7 
How fragile we are
              Am7 
So fragile we are, we just don't show it
           Em7
We shake up this town
          Bm7 / F#
And shoot down the stars for our enjoyment
            Am7
So sexy we are
            Am7
So sexy we are, we just don't know it

Em7        Bm7 /F#           Am7 


           Bm7
So take a step back
And a breath in
       Em9
Let it out now
Put your chin up
          Bm7
You can do it tiger
You a man now
      Em9                                       A
And in your dream it's time to do the best you can now
