VERSE 1
Am/E               Caug/E          Am/E                      C7/E
You're trying on a brand new dress, but you haven’t worn the old one yet
               Fmaj7  Dm               Am/E
You've come too far     To turn around now 
(Am/E)                Caug/E        Am/E                 C7/E
     You've given up the good fight,  you’re as strong as anyone 
                      Fmaj7        Dm
You're back where you started from 
                         Fmaj7          Dm 
I see you're back where you started from 

CHORUS
C                       Em                    F 
You're staring down the stars, jealous of the moon 
    Dm             G 
You wish you could fly 
C                            Em                       F 
But you're staying where you are, there's nothing you can do 
          Dm            G 
If you're too scared to try

VERSE 2
Am/E             Caug/E     Am/E              C7/E
Drag your pretty head around, swearin' you're gonna drown
                 Fmaj7 Dm
With a beautiful sigh
               Fmaj7  Dm
And a river of lies

CHORUS

BRIDGE
E                                Am             
  Why don't you call me? I could save you
E                                  F 
  Together we'll find a God we can pray to 
        Dm            
That'll take you by
Am/E                      Caug/E           
 The hand I hate to see a friend of mine, 
Am/E         C7/E                     Fmaj7 Dm
laughing out loud when she’s crying inside
                Fmaj7    Dm
But you've got your pride 

CHORUS

OUTRO
C                       Em      C                   Em 
You're staring down the stars    Stay where you are 
C                     Em                           F 
You're jealous of the moon but there's nothing you can do 
          Dm         G        
If you're too scared to try
              Dm        Dsus2     Dm7       G

Though I didn’t write it in, I often catch some of the
strings on the up strokes to fill out the strum.

Fantastic tab. The chords sound absolutely great. I would love to know the mandolin tab for this song too :D
