Tabbed here by Jon Dailey (jon_dailey@hotmail.com) Dec 2010

I still love this song so I decided to tab it YEARS after it was a hit.
I've seen fairly accurate versions that are tuned down a half step, but
my version uses standard tuning and a capo.

All tab and chords are relative to the capo, otherwise you are in the wrong key!

Verse

D                            Bmin
I (I - I - I - I'm)  Living without you

D                            Bmin
I (I - I - I - I)  Know all about you

Em                           A
I have run you down into the ground

Em                            A
Spread disease about you over town


D                           Bmin
I (I - I - I - I)  Used to adore you


D                            Bmin
I (I - I - I - I)  Couldn't control you


Em                                A
There was nothin' that I wouldn't do


Em                                 A
To keep myself around and close to you    Do you have




Chorus

   Em/G                       A
an opinion    a mind of your own    I thought you were

   Em/G                             A
special       I thought you should know   But I've run out of

  Em       G        A/C#         A
patience        I couldn't care less

Guitar part during chorus
e-----------2--0----------2--0---------0---2--0------0---2--0---|
b-------0-------------0--------------0-------------0------------|
g-----0-------------0--------------2-------------2--------------|
d---2-------------2---------------------------------------------| 2x
a---------------------------------------------------------------|
e---------------------------------------------------------------|

During the last line beginning with the word "patience" listen
closely and you can hear the intro being played again.



The following break uses D and Bmin, but the band cuts out during the D and
it is vocals only (great vocal harmony overdubs here btw.)


Chorus


The next verse is different, the first part has only this guitar part:


e-----------0---------2---|
b---------------------3---|
g------1--2----1--2---4---|
d--4------------------4---|
a---------------------2---|
e-------------------------|


e-----------0------------|
b------------------------|
g------1--2----1--2--1---|
d--4---------------------|
a------------------------|
e------------------------|

Then the remainder of the verse as before with Em and A
