                             PRETTY MARY K - Elliott Smith
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: YoHoHann
E-mail: andrew.j.rau@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

This is the version off of Figure 8, not the version off of New Moon - just to clarify.
I couldn't find a decent tab of this one online, so I decided to contribute. Enjoy.

"...Kay"



Lyrics:

Almost forgot, started to say
Rode into the sun, past everyone
Hallelujah, pretty Mary Kay

I found faith in the infirmary
There's a soldier lying in bed
With a wound to the head
Calling out to pretty Mary Kay

Here's what you get for things that haven't happened yet

I happened upon pretty Mary Kay
But a soldier's uniform waved you away

I walk round the dock and talk to St. James
Though I'm already done
And ask everyone "have you seen her?"
Pretty Mary Kay

Have you seen her?
Pretty Mary Kay
