Caroline The Wrecking Ball

This is my first tab but I love OAR and this song so I spent the time to study it for my fellow humans.  

THIS SONG IS IN STANDARD AND CAPO ON THE  2ND FRET  

VERSE (CHORDS SAME IN EVERY VERSE JUST LISTEN FOR STRUMMING PATTERN.)  

C                         Fm7         C  
There something about the way we fall apart  
C                     Fm7      C                      G    
Like everything that matters, didnít matter from the start  
C              Fm7           C      
Everyone around us played a part  
                   C                    Fm7               
Wrecking ball came crashing through the window  
C                   G            Fm7  
Structures that we carry in our heart  
C              G              
And all I ever asked of you  
C                 Fm7             C           
Is just to be the woman that you wanted to  
C             G  
Itís all I ever asked  
C                Fm7        C  
Just outside the city on a Sunday last July  
C                   Fm7            C           G  
The girlís name was Brandy but we called her Caroline  
C           Fm7       C  
No one even knew her history  
                    C               Fm7   
Said she came from somewhere in the southland  
C                  G                   Fm7  
Feels like she was coming straight for me  

I was playing nine ball with two guys I knew from work  
This junkie local starts acting like a jerk  
Saw him put his hand up Brandyís skirt  
And I donít know what happened next  
In retrospect I lost my head and think I went berserk  

By the time they pulled me off him I was almost coming to  
Bleeding at the knuckles, she says nice to meet you  
And the cops will probably be here in a flash  
We hailed a cab we both got in  
And watched that taxi driver slam his foot down on the gas  

Chorus (SAME CHORDS WITH EVERY Chorus)  
          C         Fm7      C                G  
Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
F5/C  (E0 A3 D3 G0 B1 e0 is how to play this weird chord)  
Oh oh oh  
         C          Fm7      C                G   
Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
F5/C  
But I ainít nobodyís fool  

Next few months we spent a lot of time up in the room  
Laughed a lot, drank a lot, yeah we tried to shoot the moon  
And in the morning time she'd always disappear  
I agreed, I'd never ask her questions  
With the chance of an answer I don't wanna hear  

One morning, she crying on the stoop outside my place  
She tryiní to hide it, thereís sadness on her face  
Oh is there anything I can do?  
She said perhaps if you would drop this package off  
I would hate to inconvenience you  

Well they say a suckers born, every sixty seconds time  
I knew I shouldn't do it, but I put it from my mind  
And, oh if you knew that gal of mine  
Youíd understand, I got no hand in making that decision  
Reason got no rhyme  

Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
Oh oh oh  
Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
But I ain't nobody's fool  
Nobody's fool no more  

I knocked at the address that she gave waited for a few  
Looked inside the window and I saw a kid or two  
Next thing I knew a burner in my face  
There's just some shit you never can erase  

Both my hands were shaking as the sun began to rise  
I got back to my house, she was gone I'm not surprised  
You can never ground a bird that needs to fly  
Oh I got into that urge to move  
Thanks to you, my wrecking ball Caroline  

Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
Oh oh oh  
Must be a fool like me to be with a fool like you  
Oh oh oh  
Must be a fool like me to be with you  
Oh oh oh  
Must be a fool like me to be with you  
But I ain't nobody's fool  
Nobody's fool no more  
No more
