I don't know it this is more "correct", but this sounds a little better to me...

G 320033D/F# 200232
Em7 022033
C2 X32033
D XX0232

G D/F# Em7 D/F# (repeat for whole verse)

C2 D G D/F# Em7 (2x)
C2 D G (back to verse)

this is just the chorus sang with the chords to the verse.

I think that's fairly accurate, if not, it sounds good.

And sometimes some man
Would ask everything and take it away
Before he realizes
Just how good heís got it made
And please thankful
Of what you got cause if your not it just might pass you on by
And you will find yourself standiní there
Oh, asking the question: ďwhy?Ē

And what would I do
If I did not have you
And what would I say
If I had no one to say it to
Yes, I would be
Oh, lonely, without you

And I donít know how long Iíll be around
Iím traveliní from town to town
And let me take a moment and release
Just how I feel inside
And all my friends itís been rough
Oh, and I love you all so
And no matter where I go
Itís in my heart, Iíll hold you close


And what would I do
If I did not have you
And what would I say
Oh, ff I had no one to sayÖ
To say it too
I would be
Oh, I would be so lonely
Without you

A couple typo mistakes:

He says:

"And please be thankful" instead of "And please thankful"


"And, oh, my friends, it's been rough" not "all my friends it's been rough"

lol, have fun!

Shawn hits the electronic pickup on his guitar with his wrist to create a bass percussion sound. He also palm mutes on and off, so the song gets more complex if you add in these strumming techniques, but you wont get the same sound if you don't. I'll use a * to symbolize when he hits the saddle to give you an idea of what I mean. I know that these chords are correct for the chorus because I saw a clip of Shawn playing this song live, on the Internet.
