                             Sara Bareilles- Basket Case
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning:DADGAD
This song can be played in regular tuning, but DADGAD is what i hear it to be in the 
and it just has a fuller sound anyways.  PLEASE comment if you have something to change or add.

The chords played in this song might be different than what you may think they are, so 
put the chords up before as a reference.  there are also some chord variations- one may 
easier in one part of the song, while the other may be more useful in a different progression.

in the chorus, there is a *climb* before "i've been saving your place." it's shown below

VERSE 1
 Aadd4          G2              D
I don't want to talk about it to you

        Aadd4                    G2     D
I'm not an open book that you can rifle through

    Aadd4                     Bm7       G2  Emin9add11
The cold hard truth that you'll see right to

           D          Aadd4           G2
I'm just a basket case without you


           Aadd4              G2    D
He's not a magic man or a perfect fit

          Aadd4                     G2    D
But had a steady hand and I got used to it

      Aadd4                    Bm7        G2  Emin9add11
And a glass cage heart and invited me in

                   D        Aadd4           G2
And now I'm just a basket case without him

CHORUS
D                    G2
You're begging for the truth

Gminadd9          D   *Climb*
So I'm saying it to you

                      G2
I've been saving your place

         Gminadd9
And what good does it do

               D        Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case

               D         Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case

 VERSE 2

CHORUS

BRIDGE
               D
Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams

             A
Oh send your armies in of robbers and thieves

             Bm7        G2   D (opt /F#)       G2 
Bm7 A7/C#
To steal the state I'm in I don't want it anymore

CHORUS
D                     G2
You're begging for the truth

Gminadd9           D *climb*
So I'm saying it to you

D                     G2
I've been saving your place

         Gminadd9
And what good does it do

               D           Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case

               D           Aadd4 G2
Now I'm just a basket case


Verse 2
I don't say much and it'll stay that way
You've got a steel train touch, and i'm just a track you lay.
So i'll just stay right here underneath you.
I'm just a basket case, that's what we do.
