Pretty Mary K (other version) by Elliott Smith
Was released on "New Moon"

In my opinion, it sounds much better w/ fingerpicking than just strumming.

  Bm       A   G               D
Pretty Mary K walks along the dock

  Bm               A    G                  D
with some sailor's pay shoved down in her sock.

  D       F#m    C                     G     D
Pretty Mary K, with some little boy in blue

 D         G   Bm   A     D
Who can't stay away from you.


 Bm        A   G                D
Pretty Mary K took him back to town.

 Bm                   A      G
I'm down here by the bay,

                 D
where the water pounds.

D               F#m   C               G   D
Up against the wall, crying black and blue

 D    G  Bm   A     D
Keeps me away from you.

Pretty words that you whisper, (riff)

 Bm   Bb       D
Maybe I misunderstood.

   Bm     Bb          D                    C         
         G
Somebody's not paying attention when they promised and their word

       Gm
Isn't good.


  Bm     A   G              D
Oh, Mary K, I can see your face.

 Bm                A       G           D
Down there in the waves, painted and erased.

 D               F#m
But I know it's just

C                   G   D
a reflection of the moon,

D     G    Bm      A   D
A big fake resembling you.

(riff)                    (riff)
 Bm   Bb              D      Bm    Bb       
         D
Gonna go down in the water, fill my mouth up full of sand.
(riff)
 Bm     Bb            D                  C         G
I'll be waiting still impatient with my dead imagination

  G                           Gm
while you're with some other man.


 Bm        A    G                  D
Pretty Mary K, off in somebody's room.

Bm                    A
I'm down here by the bay

 G                      D
with my arm around the moon.

D                    F#m
But I'll be with you soon,

C                     G
just as soon as I've paid.

D                  G         F#m    A    D
I walk across the water with Pretty Mary K.

 D           G          Bm   A    D
Walk on the water with Pretty Mary K.


(Thanks for this song, Elliott.)
