Recently, someone posted chords for this Barenaked Ladies song from
"Maybe You Should Drive." It didn't sound quite right to me, and this is
what I've come up with. I play it with a capo on the 5th fret, but only
because it makes it easier to play the subtle adds that Ed throws in
along the way. Any comments are welcome, especially from the person who
made the original post.

LIFE IN A NUTSHELL

(Capo on 5th fret)

Intro:  C  E  F (4x)  (that second chord isn't quite right--the guitar
may just hold on the C major)


C            G    Am                   F             F/E
When she was three, her Barbies always did it on the first date
C              G  Am                 F               F/E
Now she's with me, there's never any need for them to demonstrate
C                  G
She's like a baby, I'm like a cat
Am                   F        F/E
When we are happy we both get fat
    C                G                  Am                 E
And still it's never enough, it's never enough, it's never enough

F       G              C                    E            F
I don't tend to worry 'bout the things that other people say
        G               C                E         F
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
        G            C              E
Call me crazy but it really doesn't matter
         F                Am
All that matters to me is she
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/barenaked_ladies/life_in_a_nutshell_crd.html ]
C   Am7   F      G
Her life    in a nutshell
C  Am7  F           G
No way    would she want me to
C      Am7  F              G
Change me     it's not that easy 'cause
C  Am7     F       G         Am    G    D   F
My time is often decided for me
    Am   G   D   F
For me


Same for second verse and chorus


Bridge:
Dm        G    Am                 F             F/E
   I fell down     with no one to catch me from falling
Dm           G
   She came 'round
    Am       G          F               F/E        Dm
And only her tenderness stopped me from bawling my eyes out
    G
I'm okay


And that's why, etc.
