Song: Saddest Story Ever Told (Composed by Benjamin Gibbard [Magnetic Fields Cover])
Tuning: Standard
I did my best to convert this to and acoustic chord version...some of them I just played what sounded
best.  If you've heard Ben sing this I am hopeful that this will sound close enough..I think it sounds 
great. If you come up with anything that sounds better feel free to post your corrected tab...I have 
only been playing guitar for about a month now so I am not the best at figuring out guitar chords.

   C                              F                                G
We used to go out on the summer   nights and dance in the neon rain  
We used to hold hands at the movie show but we'll never hold hands again  

   C           G                     C        G        
Do do do do do come on come on  Do do do do do come on come on 

  C     G        F     C     G      F                   G:300033
Those days are gone  You and I were young those summer nights  
You'll see the world diving for a girl you'll never find 

               Am Em:022010    F    G
and then we'll quietly    grow old: the saddest story ever told.
  
   C                              F                               G
Once upon a time we fell in love or at least that's what you said  
You say I can find someone else but I just wish I was dead  

   C           G                     C         G
Do do do do do come on come on  Do do do do do come on come on. 
  
   C     G        F     C     G      F                   G:300033
Those days are gone  You and I were young those summer nights  
You'll see the world diving for a girl you'll never find 

               Am Em:022010    F    G
and then we'll quietly    grow old: the saddest story ever told.

That Em with the raised C sure sounds right, but why the G variation? Sounds wonky to me, and I certainly can't hear it in the poor quality live recording.
