Mockingbird by Ryan Adams, this song has a lot of noodling subtlety about it that i'v 
gutted to get down a simple chord version, listen to the original and you might be able to 
incorporate some of the nuances.

 C#m
Mockingbirds sing

                  E          A
Sing me what the Lord was singing

          F#m           C#m
On the day He made the water

       A             E
The color of the blues

  C#m
Sing me that song

                      E       A
Sing me to till the heavens rising

          F#m           C#m
On the day He made the water

                A        E
The color of my baby's eyes

Love her in the ways you want to be loved


Love her in the ways she wants to be loved


Love her in the ways you want to be loved

         E
But the way I'm loving her

                 Bm
It must not be enough

             A        E
Cause in the way she cries

                Bm
It only tears me up

          A             E
I feel dead inside and dying

                  C#m A
And if you give up

     E           Bm7    E
Don't give up on love

                Bm7
Don't give up on love

"Exactly the same from here on out"

The rivers they run
They run until they get too tired
Until they run behind the houses
And they become a creek
When I was a child
I ran until the creek became a river
When it turned into the ocean
I wondered why He'd made it so deep
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
But the way I'm loving her
Must not be enough
Cause the way she cries
It only tears me up
I feel dead inside and dying
Don't give up
Cause in a way she's crying
It only tears me up
I feel dead inside and dying
Give up
Don't give up on love
Don't give up on love
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
Love her in the ways you want to be loved
Sometimes it ain't enough
Sometimes it ain't enough
But don't give up on love
