Listen Up, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis
Song can be found on the UK "Cigarettes & Alcohol" single, and is 
probably one of my top 5 favorite Oasis songs.
Parts of this transcription were taken straight from the official tab 
book for Oasis B-Sides. A special thanks to Mr. Paul Das  
for providing these chords, without which I may never have known the 
correct chords for the pre-chorus and chorus!!

Chords used:

	 EADGBe
F#m	(244222)
A	(x02220)
E	(022100)
D	(xx0232)
Faug	(1x3221) [NOTE: it's easier to play this as (xx3221)]
A/E	(002220)
B7	(x24242)
Bm7	(x24232)

Verse 1
-------
       F#m            A            E             D        A
Listen up, what's the time, said today I'm gonna speak my mind
        F#m       A          E             D      A          
Take me up to the top of the world I wanna see my crime
       F#m           A        E                D        A
Day by day there's a man in a suit, he's gonna make you pay
        F#m	   	  A		E	   D             A
For the thoughts that you think and the words they won't let you say

Pre-chorus
----------
F#m           Faug       A/E             B7
     One fine day, gonna leave you all behind
Bm7		       D            E
     It wouldn't be so bad if I had time

Chorus
------
D		 A/C#    E
Sail me down the river alone
          D                 A/C#     F#m
I've been tryin' to find my way back home
      D                A/C#
But I don't believe in magic
D           A/C#
Life is automatic
    B7            D                A   (pick "A" like guitar 2 in verse)
But I don't don't mind being on my own
   B7      D                A            A
No I don't mind being on my own

Tab for high pitched guitar in background of chorus:
You'l hear this little riff repeating again and again in the chorus 
background with some sort of weird guitar effect used on it:
