Capo
5th fret
Thanks to Thomas Stückelberger whose original tab served as the basis for 
this tab. I just put the chords I believe to be correct on his format. This 
sounds pretty perfect playing along with the song. Keep in mind that they 
are playing different chords, or at least with a capo on a different fret,
as they play with their guitars a full step down, so if you tuned down your 
guitar to play Gaslight Anthem, you would need to play this with the capo on
the 5th.

Intros and Verses Palm muted


INTRO:


            Em
See I've been here for 28 years.
            Bm
Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.
             C
We tattooed lines beneath our skin.
             G                      D (play chord let ring)
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.


G Em C G D



Verse 1:

Strum the other sections:

                    Em
See I've been here for 28 years.
               Bm
Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.
                   C
We tattooed lines beneath our skin.
               G                      D
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.

               Em
We've been burned by all our fears.
               Bm
Just from growing up around here.
               C
Our father's factories marked our cars.
               G                                D
While Eden burned against the stars.

Chorus 1: (play a quick triplet stroke at each chord change, emphasize the following downstroke)

              G
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em
I can't take no more regret.
                C
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  G                     D
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 G
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                C
We're going to wash these sins away.
                G                           D
Or else we won't come back again.


G - Em - C - G - D


Verse 2:

               Em
You know I had these ballroom dreams.
             Bm
That, as a child, came to me.
            C
I was a boy in Grandma's arms.

                     G                      D
A mother's pride and a wounded heart.
                      Em
And I was full with fiery wonder.
                    Bm
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
                    C                       
You were the only one who understood me then
        G                         D
and the only one who will.

Chorus 2:

              G
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em
I can't take no more regret.
                C
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                 G                    D
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 G
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
               C
We're going to wash these sins away.
                G                           D
Or else we won't come back again.

Bridge:

          Em         D         C         G
And now I drive the 101 on the California night.
         Em              D         C              G
            
And I'm amazed at all the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign.
          Em            D              C         G   
       
And we waltz, ballet up a boulevard to a place we never kept
          Em            D             C          G
         
And I'm not sure if we belong here, if I ever really left, or If I can go
  D    (long)
home.

Chorus / Outro:

              G (one strum)
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em (one strum)
I can't take no more regret.
                C
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  G                      D
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 G
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                C
We're going to wash these sins away.
                G                             D
Or else we won't come back again.
          GEmCGD (repeat)
No retreat. No regrets.
              G           D             G (end)
Meet me by the river's edge.

hey great tab buddy. but I would recommend that you play the chorus:

G (320033)
Em (020033)
Cadd9 (032033)
G (320033)
Dsus (xx0233)

so basically you add a G-note and a D-Note to every chord (on the b & e string; ----33)
sounds a little bit better. but otherwise great tabs. thanks for that!
