                This is my first tab contribution, but I'm confident it's right. It's
similar to the other versions, but I have a few different chords in the
chorus section and I added the tab for a little riff that ends the chorus.


Riff 1: "I never thought of this as funny..."

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--9--h11--11--11--9--11--13--14--14--13--------------------------------|
A--0---0----0---0--0---0---0---0---0---0--9--h11--11--9--11--11--11--11-|
E-----------------------------------------0----0---0--0---0---0---0---0-|

Riff 2: "I wanna be your christmas tree..." (Chords only)

e---2---2---|
B---3---4---|
G---2---4---|
D---0---4---|
A-----------|
E-----------|

Riff 3: "I'll strip the world that you must live in..." (same as Riff 1,
but in reverse order. End with the first half again)

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------9--h11--11--11--9--11--13--14--14--13-|
A--9--h11--11--9--11--11--11--11--0---0----0---0--0---0---0---0---0---0-|
E--0----0---0--0---0---0---0---0----------------------------------------|

Chorus: "You and me..." (Chords only)

e---0---2---4---5---2---2---2---|
B---0---4---4---5---2---2---2---|
G---1---4---4---6---2---3---4---|
D---2---4---6---7---4---4---4---|
A---2-------6---7---4---4---2---|
E---0-------4---5---2---2---2---|

The chorus chords end with a little riff. I usually play it as:

e------------4--4--2--0--|
B------------4--4--2--0--|
G--2--h4--4--------------|
D--2--h4--4--------------|
A------------------------|
E------------------------|

There is also a "solo" that plays over the chorus during certain
repetitions. Strum the first note, then slide from note to note.
For this part, play:

e--------------------------|
B--------------------------|
G--9--4--2--4--6--2--3--4--|
D--------------------------|
A--------------------------|
E--------------------------|

The whole order of the song is as follows:

Riff 1:
I never thought of this as funny
It speaks another world to me
I wanna be your Easter bunny

Riff 2:
I wanna be your Christmas tree

Riff 3:
I'll strip the world that you must live in
Of all its godforsaken greed
I'll ply the tar out of your feathers
I'll pluck the thorns out of your feet

Riff 2:
You and me

Chorus:
You and me
You and me

Riff 1:
And if I choose your sanctuary
I'll want to wash you with my hair
I'll want to drink of sacred fountains

Riff 2:
And find the riches hidden there

Riff 3:
I'll eat the lotus and peyote
I'll want to hear the caged-bird sing
I'll want the secrets of the temple
I'll want the finger with the ring

Riff 2:
You and me

Chorus:
You and me
You and me

Chorus + Solo

Riff 1:
And if you make me your religion
I'll give you all you will need
I'll be the drawing of your breath

Riff 2:
I'll be the cup if you should bleed

Riff 3:
I'll be the sky above the Ganges
I'll be the vast and stormy sea
I'll be the lights that guide you inland
I'll be the visions you will see

Riff 2

Chorus:
Visions you will see
You will see
You will see

Chorus:
You and me
You and me
You and me

Chorus + Solo:
You and me
You and me
You and me

Chorus + Solo (x4)

And that's it!
