NOTE:

Since putting in double digit numbers i will refer to 10, 11, or 12 as the following:

t = 10
e = 11
w = 12

You can take some liberties with the intro and the verse, blake plays it in a more
pattern live, but this is just about it. The chords shown above are just to give you a better
as to where to put your fingers. I was doing the ts and the es and the ws and figured 
its hard to read. So i put the chord shapes.

Intro/Verse:
   D                Bbsus3   Asus3    Bm               Bm7
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D |--w-----w-------|----------------|--9------9------|--7------7------|
G |----e-----e-----|----------------|----7------7----|----7------7----|
B |------t-----t---|--e------t------|------7------7--|------7------7--|
e |------t-----t---|--t------9------|------7------7--|------7------7--|

   G                  A                D               G s A
                      (strum)         (strum)          (strum)
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D |--5-------5---5s|--7-------------|--w-------------|--5-s-7---------|
G |----4-----4---4s|--6-------------|--e-------------|--4-s-6---------|
B |------3---3---3s|--5-------------|--t-------------|--3-s-5---------|
e |------3---3---3s|--5-------------|--t-------------|--3-s-5---------|


Thats basically the riff, so do that all throughout the verse.


D
Pull the ripchord,

Bbsus3                Asus3
The ship has lost it's sail.

Bm
Your mama's got a new man

Bm7
Your daddy always fails

G
And you're eating again,

A
At them,

                D
Cause nobody loves you.

G (slide) A

D
And even fancy things,

Bbsus3               Asus3
Have finally lost their charm

Bm
Wine and diamond rings

Bm7
They never get you anymore,

G
You're sleeping again

A
Alone,

                 D
Cause nobody loves you.

G (slide) A


G*             F#
Ooh, oh oh oh

Bm                            Bm7
They should have seen you, shoulda known you

        G                         A*  A7 Aadd5 (in whatever order sounds right)
Shoulda known what it was like to be you

Then just do that same thing for the last part.


So, come on kid

Look at what you did

I don't know if you meant it

But you did yourself in

And I was even having a good day

When I found out we lost you.


Ooh, ooh ooh

She said it was in the singing

And the strumming

Oh man, I even seen it coming...


Outro:

Repeat intro.


ALTERNATE INTRO!


I cant decide for the life of me which intro is correct, so its either the one above, or
following. I play this one, but only because it's softer and easier to sing to. I don't
know.

Intro/Verse:
   D                  D      Asus3    Bm               Bm7
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D |--w-----w-------|--w-------------|--9------9------|--7------7------|
G |----e-----e-----|--e-------------|----7------7----|----7------7----|
B |------t-----t---|--t------t------|------7------7--|------7------7--|
e |------t-----t---|--t------9------|------7------7--|------7------7--|

   G                  A                D               G s A
                      (strum)         (strum)          (strum)
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D |--5-------5---5s|--7-------------|--w-------------|--5-s-7---------|
G |----4-----4---4s|--6-------------|--e-------------|--4-s-6---------|
B |------3---3---3s|--5-------------|--t-------------|--3-s-5---------|
e |------3---3---3s|--5-------------|--t-------------|--3-s-5---------|

If you play the Bbsus3 with the recording, it sounds right, but if you play it without
recording, it sounds really off.
