This is the version from the live album Motion Sickness released late 2005.
Well...it's supposed to be...


         F          
Well the songs you sung spiraled
    Am
And hung 'round like echoes 
  Bb                 C
Or ripples on a pond

       F
So you circled the globe
        Am
Spent a year on the road
      Bb           C
Without ever going home

            F
More than a couple of days, 
           Am
Then youíd leave right away
        Bb               C
Run to a girl you barely know

        F
But you like how she sings
        Am
And you canít help but think
            Bb                  C 
That thereís something that she knows and could teach you

Bb                              C
  While youíre sleeping in that southern state
Bb                               C
  Where the bars are filled with people you canít hate
    Bb
But try as you try
    C
You still canít relate to them 
        Bb                     C
And you drink that whiskey down
               Am
As they ask you, 

                 C       F           
ďAre you who you say you are?Ē
                Bb               F
Are you who you say that you are?
                Bb                C
Are you who you say that you are, youÖ
                Bb               F
Are you who you say that you are?
                Bb      F    E Bb
Are you who you say you are?
              C
The fact that you canít tell makes us like you even more

              F 
So now youíre trying again
        Am
Or just visiting friends
      Bb                   C
One had just had his heart broke
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bright_eyes/southern_state_crd.html ]
              F 
For the first time in his life
       Am
He realized there are times
        Bb              C
When you canít make it alone

               F  
But now youíre giving advice
      Am  
As if you had the right
   Bb               C  
To use a word like ďloveĒ

         F
Itís a negotiable term
          Am
What gets saidís not whatís heard
        Bb                 C     
So itís different then for everyone

                Bb                  C
But you're still hanging Ďround that college town
        Bb                          C
With yourÖyour new life your new lover youíve found 
           Bb                      C
And youíre keeping her up at night, bringing her down
                 Bb                  C
Sheíll watch you drink yourself to death
    Am
But wonít ask you, 

         C               F
ďis this really what you want?Ē
        Bb              F
Is this really what you want?
           Bb                   C
Is this really what you is this what...
           Bb             F
Is this really what you want?
        Bb               F    E Bb
Is this really what you want?
             C                                                F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because itís all youíve got?
             Bb                           C                   F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because itís all youíve got?
                               Bb
Yeah thatís it, I think youíre sticking with me now 
        C
Because Iím all youíve got

F, Am, Bb, C until end over...
