From "This Perfect World"
- tabbed by Norman Joseph (joseph@ctc.com)
(no warrantees expressed or implied - have fun)
You might want to try a capo on the 4th fret and use the following
shapes instead of barring:
open Am for C open Dm for F open E7 for G open C for E
F for A
G for B
This seems to sound closest to the record. Or, you could practice
your barring technique :-). Or you could just find the chords without
a capo, but the sound won't be -quite- right, especially for the intro
arpeggios. But, hey, fool around: you're here to learn!
Try these chords (who knows what their -real- names are?):

Sorry, I didn't have the patience to figure out the chords he's using
in this song, so I'll post the unadorned lyrics instead, and hope that
someone a little more talented can match up the right chords.
(intro)
(1st verse)
When I woke up, I was already evicted.
And when you say lie, do you think I believe anything?
(chorus)
Cold again, cold again, walkin' over Brooklyn Bridge.
Cold again, cold again, hey Miss Liberty where have you been?
(2nd verse)
When you walked up, I was lookin' at the wrong ___.
And now I'm locked out, I will be back in familiar spots.
(chorus)
Cold again, cold again, back alone before the end.
Cold again, cold again, do you really think I'd turn you in?
Cold again, cold again, walkin' over Brooklyn Bridge.
Cold again, cold again, hey Miss Liberty where have you been?

The "C+" chord below (I don't know what the proper name is) is an open C
chord with G on the top and an added A. This is how I finger it:
        X===[C+]X======
| | | | 1 |
 +-+-+-+-+-+

| | | 2 | |
 +-+-+-+-+-+

| 3 | | | 4

I dunno, sounds pretty close to me. Corrections always welcome.
