Capo 4th

Verses: Em variations (Em7/Em6) to a Cmaj9

She’s thinking no
He’s saying yes
Money shaker with the whiskey breath

Two dead lovers washed to sea
She got the worst of him
He took the best of me
The pills are gone the blinds are down
She knows the sun but she don’t know how

She don’t know how

G G/F# Am
She walked in the room like a sailor’s tattoo,
Slowly fading, lines have blurred from black into blue
G G/F# Am
There ain’t nothing she wouldn’t do when she closed the door,
C D Em
It is one it is all you will get what you asked for

Hollow smile, take the show
The love runs out when the hour goes
She dies a little every night
One more time to pay off all the lines
Leaves at dawn, she got no more,
drains the bottle curls up on the floor
