God Help The Girl - I Just Want Your Jeans tab

Chords in parenthesis are relative to a capo on the 8th fret.
Capo at 3 would work, but 8 sounds closest to the album, where
I think the guitarist is barring everything way up the neck.
The instrumental bridge is tabbed at the bottom.
Let me know if I made any mistakes.

The recording is a little flat, A=435ish, so youíll sound
a little off pitch unless you tune down accordingly.

Weird chords:
For the capo 8 chords, you can hold the Em shape and just
accent the higher notes, or only play the higher notes.

No capo                        Capo 8

During the instrumental bridge, this is how I play the end with the capo

   C(E)
My room faces north but the sunís in the south
    Eb(G)                           
Iím just waking up to the news of my birth
Gm(Bm)              Bb(D)
I am a girl and Iím lucky to be here
Ab(C)                  Fm(Am)
Whatever thatís worth

        C(E)
Like an ostrich I lived with my head in the sand
Eb(G)
Slipped into corners, sat on my hands
Gm(Bm)                  Bb(D)
I learned to stifle the shouts and the outrage
    Ab(C)               Fm(Am)
And feeling deep down

        Cm(Em)
With my chains falling off
        Cm/B(Em/Eb)
And the hope in a friend
Cm/Bb(Em/D)
Cafes and walkways
Cm/A(Em/Db)
sculptured weekends
    Ab(C)              Eb(G)
Iím getting to love my freedom
    Ab(C)              Eb(G)
Iím getting to like my surroundings

   C(E)
My room faces north but the sunís in the south
        Eb(G)
You are far out of reach Could I be any worth
   Gm(Bm)                  Bb(D)
To some special person? My mind is unknowing
   Ab(C)               Fm(Am)
Of any such love

     C(E)
So I yell out the window, answer the mail
   Eb(G)
My diaryís quiet, the definitive nail
      Gm(Bm)            Bb(D)
In my social coffin.  I blame all the boffins
    Ab(C)               Fm(Am)
For making me fail
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/g/god-help-the-girl/189854.html ]
       Cm(Em)
For an hour in the park
      Cm/B(Em/Eb)
Or an hour on the couch
         Cm/Bb(Em/D)
With the boy of my choice
      Cm/A(Em/Db)
If he makes me go ouch
       Ab(C)                   Eb(G)
I will swap all my dumb school prizes
     Ab(C)           Eb(G) 
I am open to dark surprises

Cm(Em) Gm(Bm) Ab(C) Eb(G) Fm(Am) Cm(Em) Db(F) Cm(Em) G(B) Cm(Em)

   C(E)                                   
My room faces north but the sunís in the south
        Eb(G)
You are far out of reach, perfect hand, perfect mouth
    Gm(Bm)                    Bb(D)
The boredom, the freedom, the train on the meadow
       Ab(C)               Fm(Am)
Please keep me in dreams

  Eb(G)
I donít want commitment
  Bb(D)
I donít want the drama
  Ab(C)                    Fm(Am)
I just want your jeans
                 C(E)
I just want your jeans


Instrumental Bridge:
The nice thing about playing with capo 8 is that you can play
the instrumental melody pretty easily while strumming the chords.
