THE BOY WITH THE THORN IN HIS SIDE - The Smiths

I wanted to learn this song to play acoustically, but the tabs already on here didn't
seem right. So I made this one, it's sort of an amalgamation of different people's
rendition of the song, with the song itself, put in a way I think sounds nice when
played on an acoustic.
The intro I tabbed out isn't completely accurate as to how many strums of each chord to
do, so just try it out and do whatever sounds good to yourself.
In the verse, I'll put a '*' next to the Am chords, which you play briefly for a strum
or two.
Intro: (C-D x3)
 
 e------0-00-00----2-2-00-----------------0-00-00--00-0---2--23-20--2--|
 B------1-11-11----3-3-33-----------------1-11-11--00-0---3--33-33--3--|
 G------0-00-00----2-2-22----3-33-33--33-3----------------|
 E---------------------------------------------------------------------|

this is where lyrics start
the boy with the....

(as above) Am
The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the [C]hatred [D]there lies
G Am* D
A murderous desire
Fo[Am]ooor looo[C]ove[D]
D G Am* D
How can they look into my eyes
And still they don't be[Am]lieve me[C] [D]
G Am* D
How can they hear me say those words
Still they don't [Am]believe me[C] [D]
G Am* D
And if they don't believe me now
Will they [Am]ever believe me?[C] [D]
G Am* D
And if they don't believe me now
Will they [Am]ever believe me?[C]
The intro is then played again and the above chords are repeated for the rest of the song.
