[Intro]
Am C C/B x 3  F

[Verse]
Am                            F
  Give me mercy and a minute now. I’ma bleed a little poison 
 C                            G
out. I’ma cry a little river down, then I’m setting this whole 
           Am                                     F
thing on fire. And I’m burning up the night she died. I’m 
                             C
putting every last picture aside, I’m gonna say what I need to 
G                               Am
say. In my very last letter to you 'Cause you always made it 
  F                             C
clear, said you’d never be my pain. So here’s to you and your 
  G                                            Am
bright baby blues, just a pause to cool the refrain.
                     F
And you said were satisfied, that this body just weighted the 
  C                                                G
tide. And that you missed him sometimes, but you said it's all right, its just a 
whole lot harder alone.

Am C/B F x 3  G

[Chorus]
    C                    G                                Am
But I wish you knew her now. She’s the better side of me now. 
                      F                             C
I’m doing the best I can. That's what you'da wanted. And I see 
                 G                           Am    
like you were there. I know just how you'd smile. Mary, you 
              F
looked just like, it was 1930 that night.

[Verse]
Am                                F
 But hear the days will eat you alive, but I won’t give in 
  C                                 G
tonight. You said its not worth my time, and not to regard 
    Am                                      F
them. And not to settle just for piece of mind, I could wait 
            C                         G             Am
it out all night, If I just keep breathing  [sigh]  But Mary,
               F                                        C
 I found the sound, and if this heart keeps pouring it out,
                                   G
The glory hasn't come, and it's probably gonna fade, like a
                        Am                         F
tattoo that hides this shame. But reasons always fade.
                         C
The pain gives out some day. So I’m saying my goodbyes to your
 G                                      Am  C/B F
deep blue eyes, cause I don’t know how say,     to stay still 
         Am C/B F                     Am C/B F  G
in the pain.     Stay still in the pain.

[Chorus]
    C                    G                                Am
But I wish you knew her now. She’s the better side of me now. 
                      F                             C
I’m doing the best I can. That's what you'da wanted. And I see 
                 G                           Am    
like you were there. I know just how you'd smile. Mary, you 
              F
looked just like, it was 1930 that night.

[Interlude] 
C  F  C  F (picking)

[Verse]
           C           G            Am
And if I recall the last thing you said to me, before it broke 
C       G                   F
up. Before it took you from me.
           C         G            Am            F
You said I love you more than the stars in the sky, but your 
C  G        Am          F
name just escapes me tonight. 
(Nobody does it like you anymore)

DDUUDU seems to work as a strumming pattern, although I don't think that pattern matches exactly to the way Brian plays it. It still sounds decent though.
