This is the acoustic version of Miserable At Best. Its 99% accurate how Derek Sanders plays it. If you want
 to play along to the studio version the TUNING is Drop C (CGCFAD). If you want to play it like he plays it
 live like in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EpOgNsROYc he plays it Drop Db, or Drop C#
(DbAbDbGbBbEb, or C#G#C#F#A#E#). For those of you who don't know, it's just Drop D, but half step down.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
E5
Katie, don't cry, I know
       B              C#m7
You're trying your hardest
                    B            E5
And the hardest part is letting, go

Of the nights we shared
 B         C#m7                        B
Ocala is calling and you know it's haunting
            A5           B5             C#m7             E5
But compared to your eyes, nothing shines quite as bright
            A5             B5            C#m7         E5
And when we look to the sky, its not mine, but I want it so

[Pre-Chorus 1]
E5(second)
Let's not pretend like you're alone tonight
   B5                  C#m7
(I know he's there and)
                                  B
You're probably hanging out and making eyes
                                A5
(while across the room, he stares)
                              B5
I bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
    B/C            C#m7             B
And ask my girl to dance, she'll say yes

[Chorus 1]
              A5                          B5
Because these words were never easier for me to say
   B/C            C#m7
Or her to second guess
     B
But I guess
     F#m            E7/G#
That I can live without you but
    A5               B5           E5(second)
Without you I'll be miserable at best

[Verse 2]
(Changes Slightly)
(Continue from E5[second])          
You're all that I hoped I'd find
                C#m7
In every single way
                       B
And everything I could give
                            E5(second)
Is everything you couldn't take
                           D#5                           C#m7
Cause nothing feels like home, you're a thousand miles away
                         B
And the hardest part of living
                             A5
Is just taking breaths to stay
                              B5
'Cause I know I'm good for something
       B/C               C#m7
I just haven't found it yet
        B
But I need it

[Pre-Chorus 2]
(Changes Slightly)
E
Let's not pretend like you're alone tonight
   B                   C#m7
(I know he's there and)
                                  B
You're probably hanging out and making eyes
                                A5
(while across the room, he stares)
                              B5
I bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
    B/C            C#m7             B
And ask my girl to dance, she'll say yes

[Chorus 2]
(Changes Slightly)
              A5                          B5
Because these words were never easier for me to say
   B/C            C#m7
Or her to second guess
     B
But I guess
     F#m            E7/G#
That I can live without you but
    A5               B5           E7/G#
Without you I'll be miserable at best

[Instrumental]
(Continue from E7/G#) A5 B5 B/C C#m7 B

[Bridge]
E7/G#  A5      B5      B/C         C#m7   B
Ladada Ladadaaa Ladada Laaaahohoohahooh Ooh
E7/G#                   A5             B5
And this will be the first time in a week
                   B/C
That I'll talk to you
               C#m7
And I can't speak
                                        B
Been three whole days since I've had sleep
                                      E7/G#
'Cause I dream of his lips on your cheek
                                  A5
And I got the point that I should leave you alone
     B5                    B/C
But we both know that I'm not that strong
   C#m7                            B
And I miss the lips that made me fly

[Pre-Chorus 1]

[Last Chorus/Outro]
              A5                          B5
Because these words were never easier for me to say
   B/C            C#m7
Or her to second guess
     B
But I guess
     F#m            E7/G#
That I can live without you but
    A5               B5     
Without you I'll be miserable
    F#m            E7/G#
And I can live without you but
    A5               B5
Without you I'll be miserable
    F#m            E7/G#
And I can live without you but
        A5               B5          E5
Oh, without you I'll be miserable at best

Just btw, "drop d" usually refers to tuning the low "E" down to a "D", usually for more harder styles of rock. What you are saying is to tune 1 1/2 steps down from standard to C#/Db tuning.
Just saying XD
This is a great tab! I will definitely use this more often instead of playing in the key of D XD.
