I think the original song is played on piano, so this
is a hell of a transcription. Good job.

Great tab; however, I have a modification for the bridge. It sounds like it goes Am G/B C Dm Am D C D F G

very nice job. good impovemnet at the bridge, Kukuretsu. Also, nice to throw in Gsus for G now and ten for interest. Also might throw ni a Dsus after the D in the bridge. Overall, a nice lttle song to have in one's repertoire.

what is the strumming pattern for this song?
September 11 2002, 12:00 am by jomoonly |
your chords are very close but still are wrong and so affect the sound of the song i have the sheet music for this particular piece and it is as follows C,G5,Am7,Fsus2
when you reach the chorus it should read
C,G5, Am7, F when it progresses to "inside of me" it goes as follows, F, C, G/B, Am7.. very close to what you put but still affects it... good ear better luck next time

Just a suggestion,

"It may sound absurd (C) ..but don't be naive(try a C/B instead of G)"

"I may be disturbed(C)..but won't you concede(B/C)"

It sounds a little closer
January 4 2003, 12:00 am by vortecv6man |
B/C on the first one.
Can tab ..not type
February 25 2003, 12:00 am by phantom004 |
I hope it's right or I fail my music prac.

goto thier website. they put the chords on there. These are almost right, but they use Fsus for instance, and a few other minor things.

Josephde is correct, they put tabs to their song on their website ( This is one of the songs they have on there, so if you want the correct version go to that. This is a good try, still sounds good unless you listen to the right way. Good job, still.

Nice!! Good ear! Song sound right with these chords. Nice Job!!!
October 2 2010, 07:11 pm by jonnnes |

the chords are great, but he plays Fmaj7 instead of F in the guitar version, have a look, but great work.
October 2 2010, 07:13 pm by jonnnes |

according to the video he plays a fmaj7 in the unplugged guitar version, as it is John Ondrasik himself, i believe it- but great work though.

Looks good! Try it with capo on 1. Might be pleasantly surprised.

It actually ends like this, there's more to it:

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me, inside of me, yeah
Inside of me, inside of me

I'm only a man in a funny red sheet
I'm only a man looking for a dream
I'm only a man in a funny red sheet
And it's not easy, it's not easy to be me

try with capo 3.. I don't know, it sounds good to me hahaha

Thank you so, so much! This is perfect for me. I decided to learn this after they played a cover of it by my cousin in his own funeral last week. It means the world to me!
