We used to get high together, instead of getting high alone.
           Bm
I can't remember the last time I saw you.
           A
I can't remember the last time we talked.
          D
You left home for a fresh start,
                              G
working as a waitress down in Bradenton.
         Bm       A              G
With my name tattoo'd into your skin.

                D        G
Because of the shame I associate with vulnerability
     Bm                  Bm/A
I am numbing myself completely.
          G
Can you hear me right now?
               D                           G                G/A
I watched your mother bury you today, with tears in her eyes.
         Bm                      A                     G
well, It wasn't her words that shook me, it was the resemblance you shared.

 D   A          G
Whoa oh  oh oh whoa X2

           D                                    G
Don't it seem so detached and unreal? Don't it seem so far away?
         Bm                             A
Like the past never happened, or like nothing's ever changed.
            D
With your casket open in front of me,
            G
your eyes closed and your lips silent.
         Bm      A               G
With my name tattoo'd into your skin.

I didn't listen to the preacher.
                      G
I couldn't look your husband in the eyes.
        Bm
I'm not sure what I meant to you then,
            A
so I'm not sure what I owe you now.
         D
But if something I said hurt you
               G
I swear it was not my intention.
          Bm      A             G
With your name tattoo'd into my skin.
          Bm      A             G

Hey, nice tab man..
I think mayb e the a chord in the verses should actually be G chords...
So it would go D G Bm G.
The A chord is correct for the tattoo lyric part though..
Again, good job man let me know if you think that sounds right to you. the A just doesnt sound right when you play to the song

I agree. Play a G in the verse instead of that first A and it seems pretty golden.
