Credit goes to user epicblob for getting me going in the right direction for this tab.

This is based off the Table Three Media session acoustic video. 
Studio version has no capo and is a lot less busy with the chord changes.

Tuning is FACGCE (but if you're lazy or a beginner, you can play in standard and use regular open 
or barre chords - there's a performance on Youtube where Jake plays it that way).

I tried to include all the chord changes, but sometimes Jake will add an extra note to a chord, 
so it's possible I missed some. If there's anything that needs clarification, feel free to comment.

Chord names are made up based on the notes:

C - 770000
F - 080000
C/F - 780000
F/C - 030000
Am - 430000
G/B - 220000
F/D - 050000
F/E - 070000

[Verse]

C                               F
I will lose you if I can't be alone
                                            C
I'm in love with your eyes when you get me stoned
                                          F
Drive me home and I'll sleepwalk back to you
F                           
I am the girl that I thought I outgrew

[Interlude]

C C/F C  F/C (x2)

[Verse]
 
C                           F
22 years old in my parents home
                                    C
Still speaking in whispers on the phone
C             
Grandma lit up cursing in the guest room
F                                           C
All pissed off over the font on the family tomb
                                      F
When I leave I will leave in a quiet way
                                  C
I'm too quiet to do anything but stay
                                   F
I keep trying to outline a better life
                                         G/B
But the pen's run dry, yeah the pen's run dry
                      F/C
The lines never come out right anyway

[Chorus]

Am     G/B         F/C
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh

[Verse]

C                                F
There are monsters everywhere I turn
                F/C                    C
In disguises my young self couldn't discern
                                     F
See them now in my brother's passing
                                    C
See them now in my father's absence
                                F
One is curled in a bedside wineglass
                                    C
In the master bedroom, on mother's half
                                          F
I can hear the floorboards on which they creep
                                 G/B
I can feel their fingers while I sleep
                        F/C
In a dream I am 14 all again
                                 G/B
Watching my big brother talk to them
                                    F/C                     Am
Saying "She ain't half your height, pick on someone else tonight."

[Chorus]

Am     G/B         F/C 
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C   F/D  F/E
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C   F/D  F/E
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
Am     G/B         F/C   
Oooooh, oh, oooooh oh
