  I'll stick around, I'll stick around...

another version of this song is off the internet and is fine except for one thing.
You may notice on the video that Dave's hand isn't moving that much.
If you tune your guitar up one half-step or use a capo on the first fret,
the song is way easier to play.
Note:  The song "Butterflies" is also in this tuning.

this is another one i pulled from the internet
It is possible to play the Beginning/Chorus part of the song using normal
tuning.  Unfortunately, it's going to require a long stretch for the D#/Eb.
It would look something like this:

   G5   D#   Bb5 C5 N.C.
1:------3-3-----------|
2:------4-4-----------|
3:------3-3--3---5--0-|
4:-5-5--1-1--3---5--0-|
5:-5-5--1-1--1---3--0-|
6:-3-3--------------0-|

The last strum of open zeros can also be played as just another C5.  You can
also get rid of that long D# stretch for the 1's by just playing (xxx343).
Also, Dave plays the verse like the second tab posted here, but it sounds
pretty bad on an acoustic.  To make it easier, you can just play this
progression:

   G7  F7  C
1:-3---1-----|
2:-3---1---5-|
3:-4---2---5-|
4:-3---1---5-|
5:-5---3---3-|
6:-3---1-----|

It's not perfect, and it's not how I think they play the song, but it sounds
decent.  Finally, somewhere I saw it posted this way for the pre-chorus, and
it's definitely right.  The secret is that the last chord played is a C9, an
uncommon chord.  It goes something like this:

   A#5/F        G            C9
1:--------------3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
2:--------------3-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
3:-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
4:-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
5:-1-1-1-1-1-1--2-2-2-2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
6:-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3--------------------------|

in you ever desperate plan
it returns
and when it lands

I should have known
you were better off alone
I looked in and
I was shown
you were too
