Great Expectations (acoustic)

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		

Capo II 

Intro: 
A       F#m     A       F#m     D       E 
  
A 
Mary, this station is playing every sad song 
  F#m 
I remember like we were alive 
  A 
I heard and sung them all from inside of these walls 
   F#m 
In a prison cell, where we spent those nights 
  A 
And they burned up the diner where I always used to find her 
    F#m 
Licking young boys blood from her claws 
  A 
And I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew 
     F#m 
Her hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb 

D                       E 
My heart's like, like a wound 

F#m                    D               A             E 
But I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
F#m        D              A                  E 
Everybody leaves and I'd expect this much from you 
F#m               D               A             E 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
F#m        D         A                 E     A    
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you? 

A 
Mary, I worried and stalled every night of my life 
  F#m 
Better safe than making then making the party 
 A 
And I never had a good time, I sat by my bedside 
F#m 
With papers and poetry about Estella 

D              E 
Great expectations  
D                       E 
We had the greatest expectations 

F#m                D               A             E 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
F#m        D               A             E 
Everybody left me Mary, why wouldn't you? 
F#m                D               A             E 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
F#m        D         A              E          
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you? 

F#m       D         A            E 

                   F#m        D         A       E 
It's funny how the night moves 
                   F#m        D         A       E 
Humming a song from 1962 

D             E 
We were always waiting 
D              E 
We were always waiting 
D              E                        F#m         E 
We were always waiting for something to happen 

F#m                D               A             E 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my first wife 
F#m        D               A             E 
Everybody left me Mary, why wouldn't you? 
F#m                D               A             E 
I saw tail lights last night in a dream about my old life 
F#m         D         A              E          
Everybody leaves, so why, why wouldn't you? 

A       F#m     A       F#m     D       E       A
