Written by: Maria McKee
CD: "Life Is Sweet"     (1996, Geffen Records)

Notes:

-Tuning: Standard
-for the single line lead during the Chorus, slide from each note to the
 next (listen to recording to hear how this part is played)

 Dm aren't just single downstrokes)

Dm                          C
She is full of tricks and blends so sticky in my blood
 G           D

    Dm                         C
And I can only run from everything and after her
Cm                       G
I'm wired and tired and full of holes
Dm                     Am
And she plays Pandora with my soul
Cm                      Gm
I'll never let her go -- it's so quiet here without her
