This tab is about the cover by Jay Brannan of Jann Arden's song.

This is the way I think he plays it on the YouTube video.

Capo on 5th fret:

e|-------0-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----3---------0---------3-------0---------3-------3-----------------------|
G|---2---------2---------3-------3---------4-------4-----------4-------4-----|
D|-0---------0---------3-------3---------4-------4-----------5-------5-------|
A|-------------------0-----------------2-------------------5-------5---------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------3-------------------|

And the pattern is repeated through the whole song.

And now the lyrics, cause I think they help a lot.

I've got money in my pocket
I like the color of my hair
I've got a friend who loves me
Got a house, I've got a car
I've got a good mother
and her voice is what keeps me here

Feet on ground
Heart in hand
Facing forward
Just be yourself

I... 've never wanted anything
No I... no I've
I've never wanted anything
so bad

Cardboard masks of all the people
I've been
thrown out with all the rusted, tangled
dented God Damned miseries

You could say I'm hard to hold
But if you knew me you'd know
I've got a good father
And his strength is what makes me cry

Feet on ground
Heart in hand
Facing forward
Just be yourself

I... 've never wanted anything
No I... no I've
I've never wanted anything
so bad

Feet on ground
Heart in hand

Feet on ground
Heart in hand

Thanks to the anonymous person who wrote the Chords version which helped me
a lot. That version was very near but I think this one is simpler and more
accurate.

Enjoy.

The rest of it is entirely accurate, except for the second part.

This is the correct one, one fret off there.
