The Outdoor Type

I've seen this tabbed incorrectly all over the place.  I fell in love with this 
song in the movie "Tao of Steve" and had to know it. Couldn't find the correct tab 
so I mashed it out by myself.  First time! 

The intro is a C just add G, pinkie hi e-string 3rd fret.

[Verse 1]
Always had a roof above me 
Always paid the rent. 
C                 Am     
  And I never set foot inside a tent. 
F                 G       C       Am 
Couldn't build a fire to save my life 
  F           G         F       C        
I lied about being the outdoor type 
[Verse 2]
  And I never slept out
underneath the stars 
the closest that I come to that 
was one time my car, 
F                   G           C          Am    
  Broke down for an hour in the suburbs at night
  F          G         F       C 
I lied about being the outdoor type 
Em           Am  
To scared to let you know  
  F                     G 
I knew what you've been looking for 
  Em           Am 
I lied until I fit the bill  
    F                  G 
God bless the great indoors 
  F          G          C      Am       
I lied about being the outdoor type, 
      F                               G  
I've never owned a sleeping bag let alone a mountain bike. 
  F          G         F       C         
I lied about being the outdoor type
[Verse 3]
I can't go away with you on a 
Rock climbing weekend
what if something's on TV and its 
Never shown again 
      F                G           C            Am
it's just as well I'm not invited I'm afraid of heights 
   F         G         F       C  
I lied about being the outdoor type  
F                 G                 C             Am     
Never learned to swim can't grow a beard or even fight 
F               G       F   G   C 
I lied about being the outdoor type.

I found a capo on 2 made this tab work perfectly, but I didn't see that in your notes. Whaddya think?

I agree with the capo plan. ED gets the capo happening here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgwVsrE72x4
Great tab though, thanks for your work.

I don't think the chorus goes to an Am but straight to the F. Oh, and the G falls on "mountain Bike" and not "alone"
Otherwise good job. Love this song.
