Mary Jo - Belle and Sebastian
-----------------------------

Tabbed By Caz1977

Great song, simple is best, as with most of Belle and Sebastian's songs, especially the 
ones. I've tabbed this version with alternate chords
for a different key a full step lower than the song as it's easier to play
with simpler chords if you don't want to play along with the song. They're
listed below.

Chorus 1
--------
(No Chord)          E             F#m
The night to follow day and back again
                    G#m
She doesn't want to sleep
               A                E
Well who could blame her if she wants?
                    F#m          G#m
The night to follow day and back again
                    A
She doesn't want to sleep
               F#m               A
Well who could blame her, if she sleeps?
             F#m               A
Oh who could blame her, if she sleeps?
             F#m                E
Oh who could blame her, if she's sleeping?


Verse 2
-------
E
Mary Jo, back with yourself
   B                                      A
For company, keep telling yourself you're young
                 E
And it'll happen soon
E
Mary Jo, no one can guess
     B
What you've been through
                       A
Now you've got love to burn


Chorus 2
--------
(No Chord)          E                  F#m
It's someone else's turn to go through Hell
                     G#m             A
And you can see them come from fifty yards
             E
Yeah you can tell
                    F#m            G#m
It's someone else's turn to take a fall
                    A                  F#m
And now you are the one who's strong enough to help them
    A                  F#m
The one who's strong enough to help them
    A                  F#m              E
The one who's strong enough to help them all


Bridge
------
While Stuart is carrying on "all" and then la-la-la-ing you just carry on
with the chorus chord progression:

E,  F#m,  G#m,  A   (x2)


Middle Bit
----------
C#m
Mary Jo, you're looking thin
       B
You're reading a book, "The State I Am In"
    A                      E
But oh, it doesn't help at all
C#m
Cos what you want is a cigarette
      B                              A
And a thespian with a caravanette in Hull


Chorus 3
--------
(No Chord)            E            F#m
Your life is never dull in your dreams
               G#m            A               E
A pity that it never seems to work the way you see it
              F#m          G#m
Life is never dull in your head
                A              F#m
A sorry tale of action and the men you left for
A              F#m
Women, and the men you left for
A                 F#m              E
Intrigue, and the men you left for dead


              F#m          G#m
Life is never dull in your dreams
               A                E
A pity that it never works out, Mary
              F#m          G#m
Life is never dull in your dreams
                A              F#m
A sorry tale of action and the men you left for
A              F#m
Women, and the men you left for
A                 F#m              E
Intrigue, and the men you left for dead
E
The men you left for dead
