Sonata Arctica


  Dsus          Dm             Dsus          Dm

[Verse 1]

Dm             F         Bb
Mamas put your babies to sleep, 
C                       Bb        C
story too cruelsome for them this is. 
Dm             F           Bb
In Junior High she said goodbye, 
C                       Bb         C
to her parents and ran away with a boy. 
    Gm       F      C        Dm
She left her family warm and kind, 
Gm         F                    C           Dm
all of her friends said "You´re out of your mind". 
C                         Dm
Life of her own she would find, 
     Gm                     Bb     A
it´s Monday and she´s gotta grind. 

[Verse 2]

Dm                      F           Bb
A job as a waitress she sure was to find,
C               Bb        C
beautiful face, mind of a child.
Dm                    F        Bb
Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried,
C                           Bb          C
"For this I am too young oh why did you lie?" 
    Gm         F          C     Dm
You said "It´s okay if we do it today", 
Gm       F               C        Dm
I was so scared that you would go away.
C                            Dm
"Despite all the papers been signed, 
Gm                      F         A
mama take me back be so kind". 


Dm     C                   F
Only a child, reckless and wild, 
              Bb    C     Dm
needs to come home again. 
                C              Bb    F    C    Dm
He promised the moon but won´t marry you.
           C              F
Nothing to do, eating for two, 
           Bb           C   Dm
he´s goin´ out with someone new. 
            C                  Gm
Sunshine or rain, it´s all the same, 
           F       C    Dm
life isn´t gray oh Mary-Lou. 

[Verse 3]

Dm            F              Bb
Mamas do your children still sleep, 
C                    Bb         C
in the safe of their cradles so sweet. 
Dm                   F       Bb
Story I told you I have foreseen,
C                       Bb        C
your little angel ain´t always so clean. 
Gm      F           C       Dm
Days to come aren´t easy to see, 
Gm      F              C        Dm
you can change ´em but it isn´t free. 
C                          Dm
I see that you don´t believe, 
Gm          F   C    Dm
ooo-oo, but you will see.

[Chorus] x 2

I really don't know what the tuning is on this song. I tabbed it in a standard tuning and that's how far my knowledge in guitar is...sry mate :)
