This tab is based on the acoustic version of the song (From The Casa Nova
Session), which is featured on the bonus disc that comes with the limited
edition of "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things."
The chords and song structure are exactly similar to the album version,
so you can just play along to the album.

Tempo:  Q=70 bpm
Time:   4/4, shuffled 16ths
Tuning: standard



 Intro:
In the album version the song starts straight on the 1st Verse. In the acoustic
version he plays this four times. It's finger picked staccato.

1st Verse: Play the finger picking part four times. Then move on to this part.

2nd Verse: Play the finger picking part two times. Break on the last G/D when he sings "boyfriend". Then hold the break for half a bar more.
Chorus:In the chorus are played strummed chords, so I find it simpler to notate it instandard bars. In the chart to the right are all the six chords that are playedin the choruses. G and B are used later.

To end the chorus, play this little tail.

3rd Verse: Similar to 1st Verse, just strum the A chord in right before the chorus. Chorus: Similar to previous.
