I've been run down, and I've been lied to.
And I don't know why I let that mean woman make me a fool.
She took all my money. Wrecked my new car.
Now she's with one of my good time buddies,
they're drinkin' in some crosstown bar.

My friends tell me   that I've been such a fool.
And I have stand by and take it babe, oh, for lovin' you.
I drown myself in sorrow, cause I look at what you've done.
But nothin' seems to change, the bad time stay the same,
and I can't run.

This is just personal preference (I know it is technically the same notes), but for the intro try pulling off from the 5th fret Low E string to the 3rd fret low E string and then follow with the 5th and 3rd fret on the A string. I hope this makes sense. Great tab though.
