The Gaslight Anthem – 1930 (acoustic version) Tabbed by Ossi firstname.lastname@example.org Tunning: full step down, but sounds good in standard tuning too Chords Used: Am: x02210 F: x33210 C: x32010 G: x55430 C/B: x20010 Intro: Am C C/B x 3 F Am F Give me mercy and a minute now. I’ma bleed a little poison C G out. I’ma cry a little river down, then I’m setting this whole Am F thing on fire. And I’m burning up the night she died. I’m C putting every last picture aside, I’m gonna say what I need to G Am say. In my very last letter to you 'Cause you always made it F C clear, said you’d never be my pain. So here’s to you and your G Am bright baby blues, just a pause to cool the refrain. F And you said were satisfied, that this body just weighted the C G tide. And that you missed him sometimes, but you said it's all right, its just a whole lot harder alone. Am C/B F x 3 G Chorus: C G Am But I wish you knew her now. She’s the better side of me now. F C I’m doing the best I can. That's what you'da wanted. And I see G Am like you were there. I know just how you'd smile. Mary, you F looked just like, it was 1930 that night. Am F But hear the days will eat you alive, but I won’t give in C G tonight. You said its not worth my time, and not to regard Am F them. And not to settle just for piece of mind, I could wait C G Am it out all night, If I just keep breathing [sigh] But Mary, F C I found the sound, and if this heart keeps pouring it out, G The glory hasn't come, and it's probably gonna fade, like a Am F tattoo that hides this shame. But reasons always fade. C The pain gives out some day. So I’m saying my goodbyes to your G Am C/B F deep blue eyes, cause I don’t know how say, to stay still Am C/B F Am C/B F G in the pain. Stay still in the pain. [Chorus] Interlude: C F C F (picking) C G Am And if I recall the last thing you said to me, before it broke C G F up. Before it took you from me. C G Am F You said I love you more than the stars in the sky, but your C G Am F name just escapes me tonight. (Nobody does it like you anymore) ---- if you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
