Please bear with me, this is my first tab. I really like this song and felt that the
tabs were slightly incorrect or incomplete. (ie. you dont use a capo on the 3rd fret). I
it on some other tabs I saw out there combined with a video from youtube 
I know the album version has a bass, I play the bass intro on
guitar. I'm also submitting the powertab i used to create this. Feel free to leave any suggestions.

Ugh...the formatting! A good tab, but you don't put chords into tablature! And where are the lyrics? I'm not saying its not accurate, but you could have at least taken a little more time to make this more organized.

This is a great song, hope you enjoy, and for the intro it may sound better if you hit the bass note then strum.:)

Intro: F,Bb,Dm, C

F Bb Dm C
If you were falling, then I would catch you
F Bb Dm C
You need a light, I'd find a match

Bb* C E#sus4 Dsus4 Bb*
Cuz I love the way you say good morning
Bb* C E#sus4
And you take me the way I am

F Bb Dm C
If you are chilly, here take my sweater
F Bb Dm C
Your head is aching; I'll make it better

Bb* C E#sus4 Dsus4 Bb*
Cuz I love the way you call me baby
Bb* C E#sus4
And you take me the way I am

F Bb Dm C
I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair
F Bb Dm C
Sew on patches to all you tear

Bb* C E#sus4 Dsus4 Bb*
Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise
Bb* C E#sus4
And you take me the way I am x2

the 8 8 10 10 88, the 7 7 9 9 7 7, and the 5 5 7 7 5 5 chords always sound wrong when I play them. Are you sure that they're correct?
