In the Kitchen
Umphrey's McGee

Here's the main riff...

Em7 Bsus4 Dm7 Asus4
E-------10-----------------------|-------8------------------------|
B------------8-----------7-------|-----------6--------------------|
G----------------------------9---|---------------------7----------|
D-----9--------------------------|-----7--------------7-----------|
A-7--------------------9---------|-5-----------------7------------|
E------------------7-------------|-----------------5--------------|


Em7 Bm7
It was cold in the kitchen and the lights were low
Dm7 Am7
As winter slowly stumbled home
Em7 Bm7
The air felt different and it started to show
Dm7 Am7
As every breath resembled smoke
Em7 Bm7
I was short of opinions and I wanted to know
Dm7 Am7
If you'd still be here tomorrow
Em7 Bm7
Cuz it was cold in the kitchen and the lights were low
Dm7 Am7
As winter wrapped around Chicago


Esus2 B
The T.V.'s on too much
D A
And I don't ever think enough
Esus2 B
About the things that matter most
D A
Or what can make me old
Esus2 B
And there's no argument
D A
For wasting time much better spent
Esus2 B
Complacent(ly) *BB is not one to stick to the same lyrics...
(in) replacing
D A
A melody with smoke

I play these chords like this...
As has been suggested, you can play around with these chords a lot.
For instance, using m7th's or m11th's, or 7sus4's...

Em7 Bm7 Dm7 Am7 Esus2 B D A
E-7---7---5---5---7-----7-5-5---|
B-8---7---6---5---7-----7-7-5---|
G-7---7---5---5---9-----8-7-6---|
D-9---7---7---5---9-----9-7-7---|
A-7---9---5---7---7-----9-5-7---|
E-----7-------5---------7---5---|

Play this 3 times...

E G A G A
E--------------------------------0--|-0-------------0---0------------|
B-/9-----------------------------0--|-0-------------0---0------------|
G-/9--11--9----------------------4--|-6-------------4---6------------|
D-----11--9-/9-\7--6--6--4--2----5--|-7-------------5---7------------|
A-----------/11\9--7--7--4--2----5--|-7-------------5---7------------|
E--------------------------------3--|-5-------------3---5------------|

Or this way as suggested by Mark Gedmin (mrgedmi@ilstu.edu)

E-----------------0--0---|
B--9-7-5----------0--0---|
G---------4-2-1---4--6---|
D--9-7-6----------5--7---|
A---------5-2-2---5--7---|
E-----------------3--5---|


Then this transition riff to get to the next part...

E--------------------------------|
B-7-6-----6-----6-9-8------8-----|
G-----9-7---7-9-------11-9-------|
D--------------------------------|
A--------------------------------|
E--------------------------------|

Repeat this with the following lyrics...

B A G F E F G A
E-0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0-|
B-0---0--0---0--0---0--0---0-|
G-8---6--4---2--1---2--4---6-|
D-9---7--5---3--2---3--5---7-|
A-9---7--5---3--2---3--5---7-|
E-7---5--3---1--0---1--3---5-|

I don't expect a smile when I come home
But the blankets that I stole should keep you warm
I hope there's not enough to fill a hole
I'm further from the source to feel the floor

Then this again...

E--------------------------------|
B-7-6-----6-----6-9-8------8-----|
G-----9-7---7-9-------11-9-------|
D--------------------------------|
A--------------------------------|
E--------------------------------|

Now repeat everything up to the 1st transition riff,
and end with an A chord that fades into a B chord.

Great tab, one correction, the chords on the instrumental part are repeated.

This is how I play the prechorus. Not sure if it's any more right than your tab, and I've never written a tab in my life, but this is what I think it is. Cheers.
