For the tab, standard tab notation: h=hammer, p=pull,
/=slide up, \=slide down, parenthesis for smooth bends
(ex: 12(14)12 is a 12 bent up to the pitch of a 14 and then
brought back down in one strike), ~=vibrato, and ^ for rough
bends (ex: 12^14 12 is a 12 that is bent up to the pitch of
a 14, released, and then a 12 is plucked).  Got it?  Good =)
Let's proceed. Numbers above tab indicate apprx. track time.

Verse 1:
G  E  D
A                                E
Take along some of your favorite things
       D            A
'Cause you're gonna need 'em
E             D
   Wait right here
A
Wait 'til I come back around
E              D
You and I will go
A                                  E
We'll just sit and watch it all go down
D    A
Down Down

Verse 2:
I was fakin'
While you waited for change to come
I lied when I said I couldn't stay here anymore
When you and I just can't seem to get along
You and I both know
We'll just wait until it all calms down
Down Down
Down Down
Down Down

I know these last parts could be up on the e, but the
original 12>17 slide way up top convinced me otherwise.
You can move these up and be fine=)

Verse 3:
Careful of the things you want to say
'Cause you're gonna mean 'em
Break my pride
My backbone is feelin' strong
You and I both know
What we hold would never pull it down
Down Down
