Tuning: Standard

This is my first attempt at a proper TAB...here goes.
Notice that the chords are amazingly similar to those in 'Warm Fuzzy Feeling'

Suggested voicings:

  A  B  D E5* F F#m

e-0--2--2--x--1--2-|
B-2--4--3--x--1--2-|
G-2--4--2--x--2--2-|
D-2--4--4--2--3--4-|
A-0--2--5--2--3--4-|
E-0--2--2--0--1--2-|


*For E5, it's basically just hitting the E string with down strokes, but you can add more

[INTRO]
>>in the intro and chorus chords, there's a small theme that goes like this:

e-----------------------------------------------|
B---2---2---3-2-0-2-0---------------------------|
G---------------------2-------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|
>>this might be played on a different guitar, but if you're playing solo,

>> try to play this with the chords in the chorus. Not too hard with the A chord, but 
in F#m

[VERSE 1]
 A
Once I had it all planned out
    B
My dirty fingers moved about
    D             E             A         E5
To make a mess of everything around me
 A
I don't claim to know my way
         B
I still run in circles every day
 D                    E
Running around half blind
 F             E
Life can be unkind

[CHORUS 1]
                         A
But it's better than it was
                    F#m
It's better than it was
        D                 E
I complain very little because
                     A    E5
It's better than it was

[VERSE 2]
 A
I get to remembering
    B
We had alot more money then
    D             E            A          E5
To make a mess of everything around us
 A
Now the money comes and goes a bit
 B
Faster than my confidence grows
 D          E
Everybody knows
              F                E
There ain't nothing new about money woes

[CHORUS 2]
                        A
But it's better than it was
                    F#m
It's better than it was
                    D    E
It's better than it was
                     F#m
It's better than we ever could have
E                A
Wished it to before

[BRIDGE]
F#m            E
It was bad a while ago
F7                   E
Better than this I know

[SOLO - timing is approximate]

B------------------4---4-4-4-4-5-7-----------------------------7----|
G----4---4---4-6----------------------------------------------------|

                         B
But it's better than it was
                    G#m
It's better than it was
        E                 F#
I complain very little because
                     B
It's better than it was

 * B, with that theme, for the rest *
Better than it was .....
