Ok this is like a really brilliant song i love it so i tabbed it out.
It's fairly simple for the most part. If i give a chord over a chord it
means the bass guitar plays the second chord so guitarists dont worry about
it ok?

Also if i put words in parentheses after a chord it means you start playing
the chord when he says those words. 

Intro:    G     G7/F     C/E      Cm/Eb

Intro (keyboard part):  ("/" means slide)

e----7---8---10-7--( 3x ->)---8p7-------------

Just play the Intro guitar part twice

Chorus:  C (Jeff...)      G  (But I...)    [play all that 2x]

Chorus (guitar harmony on "open all the windows"):  G--5--4-5-7-5-4--

Post Chorus: play staccato

C    Bm    Am    D  G   
C    Bm    Am    D     G(let ring)

Play Intro
Play Verse 2
Play Chorus
Play Post Chorus 2x

Bridge part 1 ('cause you confuse me...): Play 2x
   G               G7              C               Cm

Bridge Part 2:
A (Try..)     D (person...)     A (friend...)     D (son...)

Bridge Part 3 (He tries to be a better someone): NO GUITAR!

Bridge Part 4 (Feels like...):GUITAR 1 !!PALM-MUTE ALL!!
A--55555555555555557777777777777777- play this 2x then play the G5 8x palm-muted
   G5              A5

Bridge Part 4: GUITAR 2  (plays melody of "being this tired before"):

   B5 C5    G      G7       C      Cm (let ring)

Play Chorus
Play Post Chorus 2x

Ending (picking up on the last word of the post chorus):

C     D     Em     F     
C     D     Em     F
C     D     G

sounds good but the tunings wrong. in the interview on this site thiessen said they tune the A string to a G. otherwise its great

Timay21 - 2004-05-29

yep, a string is in g tuning. which changes the chords completely

Handsome - 2004-06-22

For the bridge part you have A and D in there... those chords would be right, but they are in the wrong key. The chords should be D instead of A and G instead of D.

stevo_1515 - 2004-09-18

the tuning is

mtlmouth - 2005-07-26

Hey, what am I supposed to play on "cause when it's colder, I feel much better..."? I know it lists a post-chorus, but I was thinking that was "and I'll go to undergo a surgery...", which sounds right with those chords... but the C, G chorus doesn't work for that line. :-/

HEY GUYS!! did you know that if you keep playing this song all the way to the very end theres a hidden rap song that is really stupid, but hilarious. Check it out!
