Ben Harper - The Word Suicide tab

So Here's my first tab -- I just lifted these chords by ear cause I couldn't find any 
I'm pretty sure it's correct. Easy song to jam on, key of C, this is one of the best 
put out in 2009.

Ben Harper and Relentless 7 - The Word Suicide
As Tabbed by Joseph Noah

**NOTE** On the Am chord change in the verse, sometimes Ben will play a Am followed by 
Aadd9 and an Am7 something like
     C     G           Am       Em

Intro: G  Am  Em

C        G            Am   Em
The word suicide is irresponsible
C        G            Am   Em
Still you offered to buy me a gun
F        C        G     Em
what's so hard about sympathy
G       Am       Em
Love is a lonely room
G       Am       Em
Love is a lonely room


C               G
When out on the edge
Am              Em
there's just two directions
C    G        Am      Em
And somebody has to lose
F                              C
I should know better than to use words
G              Em
Like never and hate
G        Am        Em
Love is a lonely room
G        Am        Em
Love is a lonely room

C  G       Am    Em
This is no way to live
C  G        Am     Em
And this is no way to die
F                    C
Who in the hell's life is
             G     Em
this I'm living anyway
G        Am        Em
Love is a lonely room
G        Am       Em
Love is a lonely room
