Rhythm Guitar: Capo on 4rth
Lead Guitar: No Capo

Intro (Rhythm, acoustic):
     Dsus2                        Em
It's sittin' by the overcoat, the second shelf, the note she wrote
     C*                   G/B       D*     C
That I can't bring myself to throw away,    and also
D                Dsus2                 Em                       C*
Reach, she said, for no one else but you, 'cause you won't turn away
       G/B           D
When someone else is gone

(* - hammer on and off second finger)

Verse (Rhythm, electric):
    D               Dsus2      Em
I'm sorry 'bout the attitude I need to give when I'm with you
    C*                G                   D           C
But no one else would take this shit from me,     and I'm so
D*                          Em                     C*
Terrified of no one else but me, I'm here all the time
G            D*   Cadd9
I won't go away,    Yeah
