Mae - The Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten
Full step down tuning (DGCFAd)
Transcribed by Jack Cookson (Torn_Asunder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chords used:

C    (332010)
G    (320033)
Am   (x02210)
F    (x33210) <--the way Brian often plays it 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro: C, G, Am, F x2


Verse one:
C    
Stay the same, don't ever change
           G
Cause I'd miss your ways
           Am
With your Bette Davis eyes
          F             G
And your mama's party dress
            C        
While this city pumps it's aching heart
     G
For one more drop of blood,
            Am 
We work our fingers down to dust
       F                   G
And we wait for kingdom come
               C
With the radio on


Chorus:
        Am             F
I wanna see you tonight
           C           G
Would you come for a drive?
         Am        F
You can lean into me
         C            G
If you ain't been in love for a while


Repeat intro chords


Verse 2:
       C
I was born beside a river
      G
That flows to a raging sea
           Am 
That will one day serve to quell
    F                 G
Or one day be the death of me
      C       
In my faded jeans and far away eyes
     G 
And salty carnival kiss
      Am                      F
That all my former lovers say
     G             C
Was once magnificent


Chorus:
        Am             F
I wanna see you tonight
           C            G
Would you come for a drive?
         Am       F
You can lean into me 
            C               G
And if you ain't oh if you ain't... 

         Am            F
I wanna see you tonight
           C           G
Would you come for a drive?
         Am       F
You can lean into me
         C            G             C
If you ain't been in love for a while


Repeat intro chords again


Outro chorus:
                 Am              F 
And still this city pumps it's aching heart
     C                G
For one more drop of blood
              Am             F
We work our fingers down to dust
         C                 G
While we wait for kingdom come
                C      G      Am  
With the radio on
F               C      G      Am
With the radio on
          F               C    G   Am
It's been so long Mae, so long
          F                 C   G   Am
It's been so long Mae, so long
F                     C
But since the radio's on...
