Ok, so this is a tab of Say Anything's "The Word You Wield". It consists mostly of chords, but there are two 
small little riffs that are very easy. Hope you guys like it.

Chords used (I would play barring the 6th(B), 7th(F#), and 2nd(F#). Ebm doesn't really matter. I like playing
it on the 6th fret, but that's just me):
Bb
B
F#
Ebm

Ok so basically after each line of each verse the chord progression starts:
Bb B F# and then you do the riff (there are two variations of it). It is also important to note that you play
the riff during the next line.

1st variation:
e|------------------------|
B|--3-4-3-4-3-4-3---------|
G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

2nd variation:
e|----------2-------------|
B|--3-4-3-4---4-3---------|
G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

These alternate between every other line so...

                                 Bb  B  F#
"You've got nowhere to go but up"
(1st variation)
e|------------------------|
B|--3-4-3-4-3-4-3---------|
G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|
  ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑
(You play this while saying the next line)
                                   Bb  B  F#
"To where you'll dine with foreign kings"
(2nd variation)
e|----------2-------------|
B|--3-4-3-4---4-3---------|
G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|
  ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑
(You play this while saying the next line)
                            Bb  B  F#
"You can't forget about our tryst"

                              Bb  B  F#         
And all those other fleeting things 
                               Bb  B  F# 
And will they train you like a dog?
                            Bb  B  F# 
And will they walk you down my street?
                              Bb  B  F# 
The wind will whistle our old songs:
                     Bb  B  F# 
The ones I'll always keep


************************************************************************************************************
FOR THE CHORUS MUTE STRUM IN BETEWEEN EACH CHORD AND BETWEEN EACH "YOU'VE GOT NOWHERE TO 
GO" YOU CAN EITHER DO THE LITTLE RIFF OR JUST STRUM IT OUT ON F#
************************************************************************************************************

                       Bb      B       F#
You've got nowhere to go, whoa, whoa
             Bb    B      F#
Nowhere to go, whoa, whoa     x3



                             Bb  B  F# 
I've got a bone to pick with you
                        Bb  B  F# 
About the argument we had
                           Bb  B  F# 
The day you got into that cab 
                             Bb  B  F# 
And said my world is in your past


                       Bb      B       F#
You've got nowhere to go, whoa, whoa
             Bb    B      F#
Nowhere to go, whoa, whoa     x3



                        Ebm
There must be something wrong with me
B  F#                           Ebm 
My mind is just a sickly little alibi
B   F#                               Ebm      B      
And why am I surprised you're giving up on me?
F#                                            Ebm  B  F#
Goodbye: the word you're wielding like a knife
                                              Ebm  B  F#
         the word you're wielding like a knife
                                              Ebm  B  F#
         the word you're wielding like a knife 

                       Bb      B       F#
You've got nowhere to go, whoa, whoa
             Bb    B      F#
Nowhere to go, whoa, whoa     x3
                                 Bb    B      F#
The word you're wielding like a knife, whoa, whoa x4

Bb
Whoooooaaaaa
