The C# in the first version is a C#m so that is what is changed here, as well as 
having all of the chords with the lyrics. The guy who posted the tab was 
unregistered, so he can't fix it...which is what I'm doing.

VERSE 1

E          A      B    E
I'm really sorry Steven
Ab                          C#m  A
But your bicycle's been stolen
E
I was watchin it for you 
F#                        A
'Til you came back in the fall
    F#                          A          B/Eb
Guess I didn't do such a good job after all

VERSE 2

E         A          B       E
I was feeling really sorry Steven
Ab                      C#m      A
And I spent all morning grieving
E
And everybody's saying
F#                         A
That you'll take the news gracefully
F#                          A                        B/Eb      
Somehow I don't think I'll be getting off that easily

CHORUS

C#m             A
I meant her no harm
E               Ab
When I left her unlocked Outside the Orange Street Food Farm
C#m                 A
I was just running in
E                             Eb
Didn't think I'd be that long
C#m                   A
I came out, she was gone
E                             Ab
And all that was there was some bored old dog
C#m               A                  E
Leashed up to the place where your bicycle had been
F#                       B
Guess we'll never see poor Madeleine again

VERSE 3

E            A       B        E
Let this be consolation, Steven
Ab                                   C#m  A
That all the while you were in England
E
I treated her with care and respect
F#                        A
And have her lots of love
                   F#                        A    B/Eb
And I was usually pretty good 'bout locking her up

CHORUS

C#m             A
Where has she gone?
E                  Ab
Well, I bet she's on the bottom of a Frenchtown pond
C#m                                 A
Rudely abused on some hescher's joyride
E                       Eb
So I wrote you this song
C#m                              A
In the hopes that you'd forgive me
E                      Ab
Even though it was wrong
C#m               A                  E
Being so careless with a thing so great
F#                               B
And taking your poor Madeleine away, away

hi just a tip for writing chords. when writing sharp and flat chords, do them all flat or all sharp. writing F# and Ab is confusing. (should be G#)
