Here is "The Stakes Are High" by Ezra Furman and the Harpoons.

This is the bare bones version of it.  Ezra throws in some stuff that I can't
figure out how to do.  But this will get you through the song.  The one flair 
that I was able to pick up on is, he occasionally uses an alternate fingering 
for a Bm.  It's essentially just the Am formation in the Bm position, but it 
sounds good.  So throw that in for effect.  Have fun.



Alternate fingering for Bm is used occasionally it is
e  2
B  3
G  4
D  4
A  x
E  x



G BmI dove into your heart like a pool
G DBut there was no water in it and I felt like a fool
Am C/G GWhen I hit the concrete bottom and I broke in two
C/G DOoh oh oh oh oh oh
G BmWalked to the hotel through the door
C/G G DBut the man at the desk said you weren't staying there no more
Am C/G GAnd I felt so stupid so sorry that I called you a whore
C/G DOoh oh oh oh oh oh
C/G G Am GYou were just doin' what you had to do
C/G G Am GAnd I feel so dumb for bein' mad at you ooh
C/G G Am GI can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
C/G G Am GI can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
Am C/G GMy heart is full I've got no room, no room
G BmI grew up with my family
C/G G DBut I did not want to leave and I cried like a baby
Am C/G GI asked, "Could I ever come back home?" and my Dad said "Maybe..."
C/G Dooh oh oh oh oh oh
G BmSo I found a new place to live
C/G G DBut I had trouble figuring out what's not real and what is
Am C/G GThe big city was so crazy I could hardly even breathe
C/G DOoh oh oh oh oh oh
C/G G Am GAnd now I'm living in a fantasy
C/G G Am GAnd I will always live there probably ooh
C/G G Am GYou could move in, you could move in with me
C/G G Am GYou could move in, you could move in with me
Am C/G GThe stakes are high, the trees are green okay!
C/G G Am GWe're all just doin' what we have to do
C/G G Am GNothin' will ever be like it was back in 1992 no-o
C/G G Am GAnd I can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
C/G G Am GI can't stay mad, I can't stay mad at you
Am C GMy heart's real full but I'll make room, I'll make room
