2nd fret
Bob Mould 
Im Sorry Baby

Watching him play it online it seems to be in an alternate tuning, 
so here is a standard tuning version that was easier for me to figure out.  
You are free to improve it. The chords dont line up, 
so listen to it for the timing.  Play this song for a friend, because its beautiful.

Capo 2

E  F#m  A  B
I'm sorry, baby, 
E  F#m  A  B
but you can't stand in my light any more 
E  F#m  A  B
Youre moving back to the shadows 
C#m  B  A  (A, G#) (notes in run)
I cant fight this any more 

F#m        A           E        A
I tried to heal you, I tried to fix you 
E                             A
I tried to show you compassion 
F#m        A           E        A
I tried to listen, I tried to love you 
E                           A
even though you were broken 
F#m        A           
I let you get up close to me 
F#m        A           
I let you feel the warm and the calm 
F#m          A                 E
and you resisted, it took me time to notice 
C#m         B                    A
but now I see the shadows as they fall 
F#m              A
I always find the broken ones 

F#m                  A
what does this say about me? 
maybe Im the broken one 
maybe when the lights go down 
F#m     A          B
maybe Im the one who feels lonely 

Im sorry, baby, 
but you can't stand in my light any more 
youre moving back to the shadows 
I cant fight you any more 
I hate to leave you standing 
in the corner on your own, 
but you cant feel the sun 
unless you open up your heart 
Im sorry, baby

Pretty good. The E in the verses doesn't sound quite right but I'll play it a few more times. Thanks for posting this!
