I tried learning this song from the other tabs on the site, and for the first time 
I didn't think any were quite right.  So I made some tweaks and here is what I 
came up with.  Feel free to contact me at scott@silentlapse.com

Barenaked Ladies Ė Old Apartment

Capo 3

G      D             Cadd9
Broke into the old apartment
G       D                   Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G          D                 Cadd9     
Broken glass, broke and hungry
Cadd9
Broken hearts and broken bones
G       D                   Cadd9
This is where we used to live
Em   D                  Cadd9
Why did you paint the walls? 
Em   D                  Cadd9
Why did you clean the floor? 
Em    D             Cadd9  D
Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door?
G         D                 Cadd9
This is where we used to live
G    D                Cadd9    
Why did you keep the mousetrap?
     D                  G
Why did you keep the dishrack?
              D            
These things used to be mine
  Cadd9                             D  
I guess they still are, I want them back
G      D             Cadd9  
Broke into the old apartment
G      D                    Cadd9   
Forty-two stairs from the street
G        D                Cadd9
Crooked landing, crooked landlord
       D                   G     
Narrow laneway filled with crooks.
G        D                 C  
This is where we used to live.
Em   D                   Cadd9
Why did they pave the lawn? 
Em   D                    Cadd9
Why did they change the locks? 
Em   D             Cadd9      D    
Why did I have to break it, I only came here to talk
G        D                Cadd9   
This is where we used to live
G     D             Cadd9      
How is the neighbor downstairs? 
      D               G
How is her temper this year? 
         D              Cadd9                         D
I turned up your tv and stomped on the floor just for fun
Em  D             G          Cadd9   
I know we donít live here anymore
Em   D            G             Cadd9 
We bought an old house on the danforth
Em   D               G              Cadd9  
She loves me and her body keeps me warm
C    D       
Iím happy here
G            D                 Cadd9
But this is where we used to live
G      D             Cadd9    
Broke into the old apartment
G       D                 Cadd9
Tore the phone out of the wall
G      D                Cadd9 
Only memories, fading memories
           D
Blending into dull tableaux
G  D          Cadd9
I want them back
G  D          Cadd9
I want them back
(This is where we used to live)
G  D          Cadd9
I want them back
(This is where we used to live)
G  D         Cadd9
I want them back
(This is where we used to live)
G  D         Cadd9
I want them back!
