Song: The Giving Tree by Plain White T's
Album: Should've Gone To Bed EP

Capo 1st Fret

Am - intro and verse (577555) (except for bridge where a regular Am is played)
D* - xx0235


[Intro]

Em (pickie 3rd) G Am G Bm7


[Verse]

Em                                     G
All the leaves on the Giving Tree have fallen
            D*       G        Bm7
No shade to crawl in underneath
Em
I've got scars from a pocket knife
      G               Am         G    D
Where you carved your heart into me


[Chorus]

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D      G
Why would you use me up
       C     D                      G    G7    
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?


[Verse 2]

Em                               G    
I lie in the dead of night and I wonder
      D*             G      Bm7
Whose covers you're between
Em
And it's sad laying in his bed
         G              Am                  G    D
You feel hollow, so you crawl home back to me


[Chorus]

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D      G
Why would you use me up
       C     D                      G        G7
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?


[Bridge]

Am
Well, I see a trail that starts
C                         G
A line of broken hearts behind you
              D
That lead you back to me
Am
The once sad and lonely fool
C                              D     Dsus4 D
With nothing left but roots to show, oh oh


[Chorus]

(Single strum per chord)

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D      G
Why would you use me up

(Resume regular strumming)

       C     D                      G     G7   
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

(Single Strum per chord)

       C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

sounds pretty good to me, not sure what you two think is wrong with it.
