Murphy, Murphy, darling dear,
  G            D             A  (Asus-A)
I long for you now night and day
     D                          G         D
Your pain was my pleasure, your sorrow my joy

I feel now I've lost you to health and good cheer

Verse 2:
G                           D              A
Darcy, when I met you I was five years too young
  D              G              A        D
A boy beyond his age, or so I'd tell someone
Bm                         G                
Anyone who'd listen and a few who couldn't care
        D                 G             A          D
Still I welcomed you with open arms, my love I did share

Chorus: 
D            G
Darcy, Darcy darling dear,
    D              A
You left me dying, crying there
   D                 G  
In whiskey, gin, and pints of beer
  A               D
I fell for you my darling dear

Verse 3:
G                       D             A
You shut me off and you showed me the door
        D           G             A              D
But you always came crawling back begging me for more
Bm                       G
I showed you kindness, a stool, and a tab
         D            G         A     D
Then you poured me my pain in a dirty glass
       G                              D              A
(Yeah, you left him bloody, battered, penniless, and poor)
            D                 G                A                  D
You know, I often stopped and wondered how you made it through my door
        Bm                          G
With my brother's new non-duplicate registry ID
         D                 G                  A             D
Well you bit off more than you could chew the first day you met me

Verse 4:
    G                                    D                A
You weren't the first to court me mister you won't be the last
    D             G             A              D
Oh, sure I wasn't honey, I know all about your past
Bm                              G
Listen to the big shot with his pager on call
          D             G            A        D
You spent most of those nights in my bathroom stall
       G                         D        A
(Yeah, you got him high, but you left him low)
D            G              A            D
Mind you own business, boy, how was I to know
     Bm                        G
That he was just a fiend and a no-good cheat
          D          G                A               D
Well it's all in the past **** 'cause now I've got it beat

i think the last part of the intro where it says another 4h6 sounds better as a 2p0. other than that, which sounds fine either way, and awsome tab! thanks a lot!

This is how I personally play the intro, I think it sounds more accurate, its more difficult to master though
