I've been run down, and I've been lied to.
And I don't know why I let that mean woman make me a fool.
She took all my money. Wrecked my new car.
Now she's with one of my good time buddies,
they're drinkin' in some crosstown bar.

Sometimes I feel,

My friends tell me   that I've been such a fool.
And I have stand by and take it babe, oh, for lovin' you.
I drown myself in sorrow, cause I look at what you've done.
But nothin' seems to change, the bad time stay the same,
and I can't run.

This is just personal preference (I know it is technically the same notes), but for the intro try pulling off from the 5th fret Low E string to the 3rd fret low E string and then follow with the 5th and 3rd fret on the A string. I hope this makes sense. Great tab though.

Missing the guitar that plays over the bass during the verse. missing alot of necessary details to make this a good tab.
