Matchbox 20 - Real World tab

"Real World"- Matchbox 20


So there's some other tabs on here that I don't think sound right at all so I took it 
myself to figure out the right way...it could be completely wrong but I tried. I'm really 
so sure about the chorus or the 4th verse so corrections or ideas would be great!!

***CAPO 1ST FRET***

Everything is in relation to this capo so just keep in mind...everything, the intro, 
and solo.

Enjoy!

Verse 1:

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)
Well I wonder what its like to be the rainmaker

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)
I wonder what its like to know that I made the rain

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)-strumming change
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone

--continue strumming previous chords here as lyrics cut in...
And you can come and see them when I'm...done, when I'm done

Verse 2:

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)
I wonder what its like to be a super hero

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)
I wonder where Id go if I could fly around downtown

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)--same strum change as before
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow sun

--continue chords just as before
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned

Chorus:
(Bm7--A--E)--different strumming pattern
Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here

(Bm7--A--E)
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart

Strange, where were you, when we started this gig

(Bm7--A--E)
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

(A--E--Bm7--A--E--Bm7)
