Verse 1:
 
       Em7 
What a hot and sultry summer  
               Cadd9 
The steam just slides up off them streets 
    G 
You got to stay inside and wait for the night  
         D 
And then come on over and see me 
          Em7 
There's a poetry about these streets  
         Cadd9 
It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath 
     G 
And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you  
    D 
But me  I never believed 
             Em7          D                          Cadd9     
 D 
Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy 
             Em7          D                          Cadd9 
Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy 


tabchorus
E Where'd you get them scars? C#m How blue is your heart? A Is it sad enough to break? E B She said "it's sad enough to break" E How long was your life? C#m Was it cold and strange like mine? A Are you man enough to lay here? E B E She said "I'm man enough my baby come see about me"

Interlude: E B E B Ab/E A E B E B Ab/E A B - key change... Verse 2: Em7 Cadd9 I had a dream about you once and I could barely see your form G And I met you between the wax and the needle D In the words of my favorite song Em7 Cadd9 Your black hair was like a raven with your tan skin on the beach G D Your backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief Em7 D Cadd9 I've been so low down I'm almost level with the ground
tabchorus
E Where'd you get them scars? C#m How blue is your heart? A Is it sad enough to break? E B She said "it's sad enough to break" E How long was your life? C#m Was it cold and strange like mine? A Are you man enough to lay here? E B E She said "I'm man enough my baby come see about me"

Interlude: E C#m B (2x) Bridge: E C#m B Did they take you to the carnival to get locked up on a ride? E Me I got caught up with the fortune tellers C#m A And the ladies with the sleepy eyes A B It took years my baby just to come clean C#m A Every streetlight a reminder B C#m And all those apologies A B C#m And the night was lonely next to me A B E Even the night was lonely next to me
tabchorus
E Where'd you get them scars? C#m How blue is your heart? A Is it sad enough to break? E B She said "it's sad enough to break" E How long was your life? C#m Was it cold and strange like mine? A Are you man enough to lay here? E B E C#m She said "I'm man enough my baby come see about me
tab
Outro: A E B Come see about me ah-ah C#m A Come see about me E B Come see about me C#m A Come see about me ah-ah E B Come see about me ah-ah E Whenever you're lonely
