Before writing me, consider the following:
1) I'm not a Mandy Moore fan, nor a huge Tangled fan... I did this so my wife could learn to play it.
2) These are the technical names for the chords, don't correct me if you don't know the WHY of the 
3) these are the chords that sound best, and I think are played in the recording, there are other 
   ways to play them though
4) Music Theory is a real thing, learn it or stop pretending like you know it.
5) I do not take requests
6) My Email is Chadtindale at, I dont check it often

Bsus (Bass plays octaves)

Bsus                    E
7 AM, the usual morning lineup
Bsus                                               E
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
C                                       G
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
       Bsus  Bsus/A  G#m13        F#m11  Bsus
Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15

            E      A
And so I'll read a book
        F#m     E
Or maybe two or three
           C#m7    F#m             A     E
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
            C#m7     F#m
I'll play guitar and knit
             A G#m13 C#m7
And cook and basically
            F#m11        Bsus  E             (intro): Bsus
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Bsus                                        E
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
Bsus                             E
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
C                               G
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
          Bsus    Bsus/A  G#m13         F#m11
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
Sew a dress!

         E          A
And I'll reread the books
          F#m     E
If I have time to spare
               C#m7       F#m
I'll paint the walls some more
                 A        E
I'm sure there's room somewhere
              C#m7      F#m
And then I'll brush and brush
              A    G#m13  C#m7
and brush and brush my hair
             F#m             A  G#m13  Cm#7
Stuck in the same place I've always been

              F#m           G#m13
And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'
    A             G#m13  C#m7
And wanderin' and wonderin'
F#m          Bsus E
When will my life begin?

E            A5/E
And tomorrow night
E            A5/E
Lights will appear
E              A5/E     E             A5  B5
Just like they do on my birthday each year
C#m7       F#m11
What is it like
Bsus                 E7
Out there where they glow?
A            G#m13
Now that I'm older
Mother might just
Let me go...

You seem like an arrogant prick

No... just annoyed, frequently, by people who are convinced that x32033 is ah C9. But when I ask where the V7 is, they reply... "huh?". Mostly, I just don't want to get into a debate over something as inane as the name of a chord, when 1) their only reference is other tabs on the internet and 2) they don't know why they assume I'm wrong. I may, credibly, be wrong. I'm often wrong. But if you don't know the WHY, then you can't be sure. And so I just don't want spam saying "that's a F#m2", when they don't know what that even means. Nor do they try and explain so that I can counter with why they're wrong in that case. In short, Please please please... keep it to educated emails.
