D     G
I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
       A                           D 
but to settle down and write you a line
       G
I been meaning to phone ya, but from Minnesota
A                           D
Hell, it's been a very long time
            A
You wear it well
  Em         D/F#          G          A  
A little old fashioned but that's all right
D    G
I suppose you're thinking Aunt Betty's sinking
      A                          D
oh he wouldn't get in touch with me
    G
For I ain't begging or losing my head
  A                   D
I sure do want you to know
                 A
That you wear it well
Em            D/F#      G       A
There ain't a lady in a land so fine oh my
D
Remember those
G
basement parties, your brothers karate
A                     D
All day rock and roll shows
    G
the homesick blues and the radical views
A                      D
haven't left a mark on you
            A
You wear it well
  Em                 D/F#     G       A
A little late on the time but I don't mind

[Chorus]
                G                          A
But I ain't for getting that you were once mine
      G                    A
but I blew it without even trying
        G
Now I'm eating my heart out
A                      D
trying to get a letter through
Em                D/F#              G            A
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on

[Verse]
          D
I want to write about the
G
birthday gown that I bought in town
   A                             D
as you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it didn't
G
cost the earth, but for what it's worth
            A                   D
you made me feel like a million aire
                A
and you wear it well 
Em     D/F#        G          A
Madame Onassis got nothing on you
D       G
Well my coffee's cold, and I'm gettin told
       A                 D
that I gotta get back to work
            G
So when the sun goes low and you're home alone
A                          D
think of me and try not to laugh
              A
and I wear it well
Em      D/F#        G       A
I don't mind if you call collect

[Chorus]
                G                          A
But I ain't for getting that you were once mine
      G                    A
but I blew it without even trying
        G
Now I'm eating my heart out
A                      D
trying to get a letter through
Em                D/F#              G            A
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on

Great tab - does anyone have a tab of the intro though?

by the brilliant Mr. Wood ?

The basic INTRO chords are as follows:
D Em Em F#m Gm A - 2x's

Note: when playing this you do variations and slides to the next chord...I didn't feel like tabbing that all out. This should give you the idea what to do though.
