Hey everyone. This is my first tab, and hopefully you like it.

It's relatively similar to the first version that was posted, I changed the Intro, 
Chorus, Pre-Chorus, and Outro chords to essentially match the verses. If you're 
like me, and have trouble singing in anything lower then Eb tuning then this version is for you.

I play with the Capo on the 1st or 3rd fret, but you can move that around wherever you want.

Tuning: Standard [EADGBe]
G      (320033)
D      (x00232)
A      (x02200)
Cadd9  (x32033)
Em7    (022033)

Intro-
G, D, G, D, G, Cadd9 -x3-
G, D, G, D, G, Cadd9,
D-

Verse 1-
       Em7
What a hot and sultry summer,
               Cadd9
The steam just slides up off them streets
    G
You got to stay inside and wait for the night, 
         D
And then come on over and see me
          Em7
There's a poetry about these streets,
         Cadd9
It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath
     G
And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you,
    D
But me, I never believed

Pre-Chorus-
               Em7          D                          Cadd9
Cause' I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy
               Em7          D                          Cadd9
Cause' I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy

Chorus-
                     G
Where'd you get them scars?
            Em7
How blue is your heart?
      Cadd9
Is it sad enough to break?
                G             D
She said, "it's sad enough to break"
                 G
How long was your life?
         Em7
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         Cadd9
Are you man enough to lay here?
                 G            D                   G
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

Verse 2-
         Em7                              Cadd9
I had a dream about you once, and I could barely see your form
       G
And I met you between the wax and the needle,
        D
In the words of my favorite song
      Em7                                  Cadd9
Your black hair was like a raven with your tan skin on the beach
      G                                 D
Your backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief
         Em7                  D                    Cadd9
I've been so low down, I'm almost level with the ground

Chorus-
                      G
Where'd you get them scars?
            Em7
How blue is your heart?
      Cadd9
Is it sad enough to break?
                G              D
She said "it's sad enough to break"
                 G
How long was your life?
        Em7
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         Cadd9
Are you man enough to lay here?
                G            D                    G
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

Bridge-
         G                                Em7           D
Did they take you to the carnival to get locked up on a ride?
G
Me, I got caught up with the fortuen tellers
          Em7                  Cadd9
And the ladies with the sleepy eyes
         Cadd9          D
It took years my baby just to come clean, 
        Em7                 Cadd9
Every streetlight a reminder
    D           Em7
And all those apologies
         Cadd9     D            Em7
And the night was lonely next to me
         Cadd9     D              G
Even the night was lonely next to me

Chorus-
                      G
Where'd you get them scars?
            Em7
How blue is your heart?
      Cadd9
Is it sad enough to break?
                G             D
She said "it's sad enough to break"
                 G
How long was your life?
        Em7
Was it cold and strange like mine?
         Cadd9
Are you man enough to lay here?
                G             D                   G      Em7
She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

Outro-
           Cadd9     G   D
Come see about me, ah-ah
         Em7        Cadd9
Come see about me, 
          G       D
Come see about me, 
          Em7         Cadd9
Come see about me, ah-ah
           G          D
Come see about me, ah-ah
                 G\
Whenever you're lonely

The intro/choruses/bridge are in a different key if you listen carefully. It'd also be nice if I could have some credit since you copied and pasted the majority of my version. Cheers.
