I Didn't Understand  Elliott Smith

Alright, so this isn't in the key of the original, but this one sounds really good. In
you can move your capo almost anywhere on the neck and this tune will sound really pretty.
Capo 3rd Fret
[D]Thought you'd be[C] looking for the next in line to[Em] love
[Em]Then ignore, put o[G]ut, and put a[C]way
And [D]so you'd soon b[C]e leaving me alone like I'm s[Em]upposed to be
Tonight tomo[G]rrow and every[C] day
[D] There's nothing here that you'll mi[G]ss
I can[C] guarantee you t[G]his is a [C]cloud of smoke[Em]
[D]Trying to occupy sp[G]ace
[C]What a fucking [G]joke, [C]what a fucking joke.[Em]
[D] I waited for a [C]bus to separate the both of us[Em]
and take me off fa[G]r away from y[C]ou
Cus my [D]feelings never [C]change a bit, I always feel like [Em]shit
I don't know why, I guess that [G]I just do[C]
[D] You once talked to me about [G]love
[C] You painted pictures [G]of, [C]a never never land[Em]
[D]I could've gone to that plac[G]e,
[C] [G] [C] [G] 
But I didn't u[Em]nderstand, I didn't understand, I didn't understand
I hope that helped. The rhythm can get kind of tricky, and I tried to place the letters
the chords as close to the words they hit on as possible.
My first tab, enjoy : )
