Silver Jews - How To Rent A Room tab

This song is in standard tuning, 6/8 time.

Verse:
e|-----------------------------------------|
B|--1--1--1--1--1--1-----1--1--1--1--1--1--|
G|--2--2--2--0-h2--2-----0--0--0--0--0--0--|
D|--3--3--3--3--3--3-----2--2--2--0-h2--2--|
A|--3--3--3--3--3--3-----3--3--3--3--3--3--|
E|-----------------------------------------|
           F                    C
Play the F and C in the same essential shape (i.e. don't use a barred chord for the F, 
so that it's easier to switch).  Remove your middle finger on the fourth strum, and 
replace it on the 5th.


There seems to be a melody played under the verse, which is somewhat like this:
e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|--------2--5--2--------2--|
A|--3--5-----------3--5-----|
E|--------------------------|
Either way, it's not terribly important to the song...


After he says "Have you even ever rented a room?" play an A minor, and let it ring for a 
measure before you play the chorus.

Chorus:
e|--1--1--1-----------3--3--3-----------0--0--0-----------0--0--0--0--0--0--|

    Dm                  G                Em                Am
You can strum this or arpeggiate it.  Either way.  It's the same scheme.
