Fall Apart Today Tab

The version I have here IS NOT 100% accurate and as you've probably already figured out,
been close to impossible to find a good video of her playing this song to get it
right, but this version does sound nice to play and sing along with.  It should work 
someone comes out with a 100% correct version.  :-)

Basic finger-picking:

This is just a pretty, finger-picking rhythm pattern to sustain as a nice backdrop to
over.  If you listen to her song, it sounds like she has another finger-picking pattern
chords but striking notes on the first strings...however it doesn't work well alone to 
with - I think she has a 2nd guitarist playing with her on this song).  This version is
for those playing alone.

I'm not sure about the bridge, but in some live versions, they skip the bridge
and play a guitar solo instead.  Play the bridge similar to finger-picking riff used on chorus

Capo 3 (or whatever suits your vocal range - I like it on 2)

[G]            [G]             [Cadd9]        [Cadd9]


G, Cadd9, G, Cadd9 (verse starts on Cadd9)

[ Tab from: ]
[Cadd9]            [G]
I don't want us to fall apart today or ever
[Cadd9]                             [G]
You're the one who said you'd never leave
There's no good reason for giving up
And all this mess is just bad luck
[Cadd9]                             [G]
Please don't lose your confidence in me

Pre chorus:

[Am]     [Em]
I wish I wasn't so fragile
[Am]                             [C]
Cause I know that I'm not easy to handle


Baby please
Don't forget you love me
[G]                      [Cadd9]
Don't forget you love me today

Baby please
Don't forget you love me
[G]                      [Cadd9]
Don't forget you love me today

Verse 2:
[Cadd9]         [G]
I don't want to feel like this
But I'm so tired of missing you
[Cadd9]         [G]
I don't want to beg for your time
[Cadd9]             [G]
I want you mine all mine


[Am]                        [Em]
I'll bet you smile when you think of me
You love me messy in the morning
Freckles on my knees oh baby
[Am]       [Cm6]

Back to prechorus then to chorus.

After you get the basic riff down, it's pretty easy.  You play the same pattern of the
for the bridge, as well, but the bass note doesn't start on the 6th string like it does
the G, it is played on the 5th.

Sorry if this isn't that great.  It's my first tab and I know it's not exactly the same
the song, but it's workable enough to sing with.

Good luck!
