G Em             B7             C
I love you but I can't remember why,

G     Em             B7             C
Stars falling from a half forgotten sky,

        G   B7                Em       C
I was a one line wonder in my own love song.

REPEAT INTRO TAB X 1

G Em            B7            C
I keep a little journal by my bed,

G     Em                B7              C
Dreams help me find the words I haven't said,

            G      B7         Em         C
Like when a little girly said goodbye to me,

     D        C      G             D       C         G
From behind a screen door, I won't see her again I'm sure.

              G     C    G             G       C     G
Well didn't I say I need you, I try to move on but I can't

       G        C   G            G           G
Try to think of bad times, good memories are all I have

REPEAT INTRO X 1

G  Em            B7            C
I love you but I can't remeber why,

G   Em             B7        C
I'd love to find a reason to deny,

        G       B7           Em       C
I was a one hit wonder in my own hometown,

G Em                 B7         C
I guess I might have made a few mistakes,

G   Em           B7              C
But maybe that's exactly what it takes,

         G      B7            Em      C
To get a little happy in this big sad world.

    D    C        G         D        C              G       B7      C    D
How many have you made, and which of those have you laid on down to die?

              G     C    G             G       C      G
Well didn't I say I need you, I try to move on but I can't

         G        C   G           G            G        C
I try to think of bad times, good memories are all I have

HERE COMES THE WALKING BASS SOLO AND THE ENDING WITH THE GUITAR AND BANJO.
THIS TAB IS FOR ONLY THE GUITAR PART. THE BASIC CHORDS HERE ARE:
Am, D, G, C

e--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------0--2-0-2/4-2-0-----------------------------------|
D----------0--0-2-4----------------2---------------------------------|
A-0--0-2-3-----------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

The ending guitar lick is basically like this over and over, there are a
few changes though.  Remember the chords to play over it are Am, D, G, C

Hopefully that's a rough sketch for you all. Enjoy and thanks a buch.

I forgot, its really nice to play the ending lick in combo with the chords, if you know what I mean. It sounds really nice on one guitar as opposed to just the chords or the lick on its own.

The lick at the end of the intro is like this, just a C arpeggio:

e--------0------------------------|
B--------1------------------------|
G-----0--0------------------------|
D----2---2------------------------|
A--3-----3------------------------|
E---------------------------------|


Also, the chorus is missing an Fmaj chord on the words "but" and "all".
