Tuning:DADGAD
This song can be played in regular tuning, but DADGAD is what i hear it to be in the 
and it just has a fuller sound anyways.  PLEASE comment if you have something to change or add.

The chords played in this song might be different than what you may think they are, so 
put the chords up before as a reference.  there are also some chord variations- one may 
easier in one part of the song, while the other may be more useful in a different progression.

VERSE 1
Aadd4 G2 DI don't want to talk about it to you
Aadd4 G2 DI'm not an open book that you can rifle through
Aadd4 Bm7 G2 Emin9add11The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
D Aadd4 G2I'm just a basket case without you
Aadd4 G2 DHe's not a magic man or a perfect fit
Aadd4 G2 DBut had a steady hand and I got used to it
Aadd4 Bm7 G2 Emin9add11And a glass cage heart and invited me in
D Aadd4 G2And now I'm just a basket case without him
CHORUS
D G2You're begging for the truth
Gminadd9 D *Climb* So I'm saying it to you
G2I've been saving your place
Gminadd9 And what good does it do
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
VERSE 2 CHORUS BRIDGE
DWon't somebody come on in and tug at my seams
AOh send your armies in of robbers and thieves
Bm7 G2 D (opt /F#) G2
Bm7 A7/C#To steal the state I'm in I don't want it anymore
CHORUS
D G2You're begging for the truth
Gminadd9 D *climb* So I'm saying it to you
D G2I've been saving your place
Gminadd9 And what good does it do
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
D Aadd4 G2Now I'm just a basket case
Verse 2 I don't say much and it'll stay that way You've got a steel train touch, and i'm just a track you lay. So i'll just stay right here underneath you. I'm just a basket case, that's what we do. ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ************************************
